The quantity being the old boys are still steel wheeling ,soon to be the rolling headstones. and no the quantity versus quality arguement is not the same thing.

I like some stones mostly the stuff with Mick Taylor, one of the top 3 British blues men.

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!
