So I was searching the web and happened to come across a discussion on what would the world be like if The Beatles had never existed

A lot of people were saying 'There would have been another big hit band instead of them'

If so, do you really think they would have accomplished as much? Would this other band have went from Rock pop to Psychedelic to Soft rock etc?

Would they have been so prolific? What if they had only lasted as long as the height of Beatlemania?

This proves we are so lucky that The Beatles were born

There have been a lot of bands who sell lots of records, but I think it was a combination of the 4 personalities, massive talents and the times that led to the whole Beatles phenomenon – so I disagree with the premise.  If this mythical other band would have occurred, then they would have also occurred when the Beatles did – maybe they are the Stones, who had a big impact but just not as big?

I think this forum is so neat in the way it helps youth and experience come together. We have so much we can learn from each other.
