I used to think this contest was close, but the more 60s music I listen to, the more I realise that the Beatles had far superior competitors than the Stones.

I don't think that the "rivalry" was so much about their music as it was about both bands' popularity at the time...  When it came to who was "the biggest", the Stones were really the only other who came remotely close...:-)

I heard a radio programme recently on the topic of which is "the last great Rolling Stones album". The discussion seemed to come down to their 1970s or early 1980s albums. I'm not sure; I would be interested in others' opinions on this subject.

I'd say Some Girls ('78). The last album that I consider to be 'great'. But me being the way I am, i'll worship anything they put out.

Yes, I find it tricky to decide but I think Some Girls would also get my vote.

I'm pleased they are still performing and releasing new material. Long may it continue!

Never got into the Stones. 

Ending the Beatles in the 60s was the best thing that happened. By ending at a peak they were preserved forever, frozen in time like a myth. The Stones are still going, which John had zero interest in doing. I can see why.
