Maybe the stones vs Beatles is a quality vs quantity thing?

Getting kinda sick of this dichotomy...so what if the Stones weren't as good as the Beatles? They were better than most bands have a right to be.

I don't think any Rolling Stones partisans have ever showed up here and started trolling...that'd be kinda interesting.

Give a listen to Aftermath! Released several months before Revolver and tried a few innovations that even THAT undisputed let's-try-anything masterpiece never got around to! (Not necessarily with such fully successful results, mind you.)

I doubt it as how much a band releases or how long they are together for should never be a reason for receiving plaudits. Status Quo have been going since the mid-60's and virtually their entire output is utter crap. Cliff Richard has been around the mid-50's and i'd argue all day long that his music is dreadful.

The Beatles material far surpasses that of The Stones through-out the 60's and from the mid-to-late 70's onwards the Stones catalogue is very unstable quality-wise. So for 5 years or so of material you elevate them above The Beatles overall? Eh, no.

I think the Stones are okay (they even have their own songwriting partnership). It's just that they trashed themselves and don't stand up to the Beatles. Comparing the Beatles to the Rolling Stones is like comparing butter to lard. They both do the same job, but one is so much better. Take a guess which one.

totally. No competition. And then there is Justin Bieber. 17psujydv5dhpjpg.jpg

but anyway back on topic. The Stones were more or less trying to imitate the Beatles for a long time, making me lose most of my respect for them. There isn't a comparison in my opinion, although people tend to think that they are in the same league. The Beatles have singing ability, flexibility, and over-all musical talent that far outweighs the stones. Besides, the Beatles are much better looking, wouldn't you say?a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Apparently, the Fabs didn't have a studio on a truck , and the Stones made it on Decca.

Wait a second-who recommended the Stones to Decca? It could only be George Harrison!

Examiner reports that in a new book called 'The Unreleased Beatles' by Richie Unterberger its revealed that Mick and Keith wrote a song for the Beatles called 'Give Me Your Hand and Hold It Tight' which they rejected. 

An excerpt from the article reads

According to Unterberger, Mick Jagger revealed the existence of the song in 1965. “A long time ago, me and Keith wrote something called ‘Give Me Your Hand and Hold It Tight,’ but the Beatles wouldn’t do it. They wrote one for us as well, called ‘Outside 109’ [possibly meaning ‘One After 909,’ which the Beatles had written years before and recorded at EMI in March 1963, though they didn’t release their own version until Let It Be]. We said we wouldn’t do the song until they did ours. So nothing happened on either side. We’re still waiting.” Despite Jagger's shaky memory and the fact the song was turned down by the Beatles, it was released by Teddy Green in 1964.

I don't think the Stones tried an any way to be like the Beatles.  The Stones were a Blues band, and the Beatles were (Pop) Rock & Roll.  Yes, all bands that came out of the UK dressed in matching suits, but that was just the times.  Soon after, the Stones stopped wearing matching suits while the Beatles did it right up until their last Concert in '66.

But ya, obviously the Beatles out talented all other bands including the Stones.

I really don't see any point in comparing the two bands.  I love both bands.  I could say more, but I'll just let Mick Jagger do the talking.

Same. I haven't owned much by the Stones in the past except for compilation albums and plan on changing that very soon. The documentary Crossfire Hurricane is in my rack at home and it is fabulous - highly recommended. My only wish about the Stones is that Mick would have have been a better singer.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

I've always wondered why there are rivalries between fans of certain bands, having grown up in the 80s when teeny bopper magazines encouraged you to like one band over another. I suppose loyalty fueled sales. But it's strange to me when grown adults still adhere to the idea that you can't love more than one band. I have a friend who won't like the Beatles because she's a Monkees fans, and I want to tell her, "you know they were friends, right? And this rivalry, if it ever existed, was only relevant 50 years ago?"

To stay on topic, I guess part of it is about shaping identity, i.e. seeming tougher/edgy because you favor The Rolling Stones.
