I guess so. No history of any other artist has fascinated me as much as The Beatles whom I already had been fascinated by through most of my life without really knowing why.

That. Exactly that. They may not always be my favourite band but their story is certainly the most rewarding.

Such stats can be misleading. I will always have a special place in my heart for the Beatles, even though I’ve been listening mostly to David Bowie as of late.

Fair enough.  In my case it is a pretty good predictor.

Yeah, it depends on your listening/loving habits. Some people only like stuff when they’re actively listening to it, but I have a sentimental journey loyalty to artists.

More like I’ve listened to the Beatles so much because they’re my favorite.  I try to listen to other things too, but it is very difficult.

I used to be there, too. My obsessions ebb and flow, though, but I will always love the lads from Liverpool. heart

ZZ Top was great in the 70’s and bad in the 80’s. If you compare songs like Just Got Paid, La Grange, and Tush to Sharp Dressed Man, Legs, and Gimme All Your Loving, the first 3 are like SRV but heavier whereas the latter are just generic 80’s pop music (albeit with some okay guitar).

I wish they never grew out their beards. Not just did it destroy the quality of their music, but they also look much better without those Duck Dynasty beards:

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Although they continued to play kickass live shows through the 80s 90s and 2000s. I’ve never seen them before I’m sure they still rip.
