If the Beatles never existed I would probably be a hard core Beach Boys fan. I think I'll always love the music from the 60's a lot more that the crap we have today.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

It's a trick question, innit?  Would pop music as we know it even exist?

I'd probably be listening to my jazz records. Classic '60s jazz remained unaffected by the British invasion, for the most part, aside from Wes Montgomery performing cover versions of "Penny Lane" or something.


I forgot about jazz as well. So I'd probably also be listening to the crooners of the 40's and 50's. People like Frank Sinatra and such.

I would probaby listen to Ozzy Osborne and Black Sabbath. (Loving The Beatles and liking Ozzy is sadly like an oxymoron)


I dunno, Ozzy is a HUGE Beatles fan.  I love Sabbath and ozzy though too! 

 

As stated above, I would also probably be a huge Beach Boys fan.  I listen to their greatest hits album on my record player nearly everyday.

Tough question...the two bands that have influenced me the most are the Beatles and Steely Dan, so I suppose without the Beatles I would be more into jazz then I am now, even though I still like it quite a bit. I wouldn't be listening to as much early R&B or soul, so I guess I'd be listening to more white music than black, which just isn't as much fun.


"Mister Steely Dan and.....whatevah......."   *heh!*

 

Let me put the "Me, too," on the jazz......although, The Rolling Stones, sure, Beach Boys, sure, Supremes, Tops and Tempts, Stevie Wonder, no question....

 

Reminds me of "It's a Wonderful Life."

"Clarence, I'm seeing so many strange things; what are you, a magician or something?"

"No, George, you've been given a wonderful gift: to see what life would be like if the Beatles never existed."

"But this Billboard chart--this is wrong!"

"No, George.....it's correct....."

"But The New Christy Minstrel Singers hold the top 5 spots in the Billboard charts???"
