Um, yeah. Doesn't sound all that likely, does it? ahdn_george_08

^^ And they would need to be damn good-looking and exude dripping loads of charm. Looks aren't everything, but you can't deny the fact that their looks did come into play to create the phenomenon of "The Beatles". Their personalities won many folks too. So just add those two aspects onto the heaps of thoughtful comments already present in this thread, and I'll stick to my earlier response of no.

The one thing I see missing is any band being able to spread their appeal across multiple generations as the Beatles did - I think the market and society in general are too fragmented for that to happen nowadays.

I think it's fair to say that the internet killed the idea of another band ever having this type of influence and popularity.

Hell...  I'm having trouble even thinking of any current band that is doing fairly well based on the old-style of development.  If you want to be in a band nowadays, you have to spend most of your time endlessly promoting yourself online.

No - this is like asking will there ever be another Leonardo da Vinci - we're talking about artistic/innovators/pioneers/inventors.

The Bealtes (when you consider their pioneering impact on music, fashion, recording, recording engineering, the business of music, film/video, entertainment marketing etc), this will not happen again.

Just like the above innovators (especially da Vinci) it doesn't happen but once.

They weren't just band - they invented an industry which has yet to even mature.

I never really thought they ''invented'' it, more that they..mastered it.

The media tries to convince us or rather general public that some new band is the new Beatles; however, I believe SH & Emily hit the nail on the head perfectly. It was the perfect storm as SH put it.

Was listening to A Beatles/Bob Dylan podcast (Fab Fourum) and they mentioned this fab quote from Bob

We were driving through Colorado, we had the radio on, and eight of the Top 10 songs were Beatles songs…’I Wanna Hold Your Hand,’ all those early ones. They were doing things nobody was doing. Their chords were outrageous, just outrageous, and their harmonies made it all valid…I knew they were pointing the direction of where music had to go.”

The end sentence "I knew they were pointing the direction of where music had to go" is so on the money.

Considering the Beatles were just one of the bands doing something new for the time, whatever new bands come around now have to do something else completely new to have such a large effect.

I think another big part of the Beatles was that no member left not-to-return until John left after Abbey Road came out. I feel like a consistent lineup is just one of those things that makes a difference, but not many bands still do this.

For the next "Baker's Dozen":  Popular bands still in existence retaining their original lineups.

U2

Anybody else...?  I always say the Canadian band "Sloan"...

Green Day *edit* Their original drummer left; however, they have had the same people for about 20 years (the line up they are mainly known for).

Can we count "Crazy Horse" - Pancho has been there for around 40 years after Danny Whitten died young?

Ringo gave us part of the answer to this question many years ago in the song "Never Without You."

"Times were right, overnight
We were headline news"

Just like we were saying, the timing was so important in the rise of the Beatles.

I love that song :) Eye To Eye is also  another good one off Ringorama

 

Now to stay-on-topic:

No, internet has ruined the chance of there ever being another Beatles. People would have heard of this 'band getting big in Liverpool', there'd have been live broadcasts from The Cavern and all that jazz. Plus it was post-Kennedy assignation, people were looking for something new, happy and The Beatles were just that. And finally- drugs, acid is nothing new now a-hard-days-night-paul-7
