They most definitely cast a giant shadow. The Stones were in that shadow for some time, worked their way out of it and then gradually pulled shoulder to shoulder with them. Finally, after 51 years the Stones did the seemingly impossible and surged ahead of them with their historic '50 and Counting tour (the pinnacle and defining moment of that tour taking place at Glastonbury this past summer). Of course it won't become "official" for at least another ten years.

Surged ahead of the Beatles? Err, no. The Glastonbury performance is already forgotten by everyone except die-hard bleeding-heart obsessives and those who happened to catch them at the festival. The Beatles will continue to be the most important and most influential pop phenomenon of our lifetime and beyond.

The legend of the '50 and Counting tour (the pinnacle and defining moment being Glastonbury) is still in it's infancy and will continue to grow as the years roll by, especially after the Stones are finally done. In about ten years or so a panel of rock historians and experts will be assembled to determine who actually was the greatest rock 'n roll band of all time. It is my belief that the Stones will emerge victorious. Granted, if you assembled that panel today the Beatles would probably come out on top, but once the Stones have finished, and with a significant passage of time, the Stones achievements will be viewed in their proper light. The Stones achieving 50 years was crucial and to perform at such a high level at 70 years of age was absolutely remarkable. It may appear that the Beatles have the edge, but that is just an illusion. Time will take care of that, of that I am certain.

you take best drugs on anyone on the forum

It will all make more sense to you as the years roll by. Probably the best thing the Stones could do to speed up the process is to retire, effective immediately. Once they are done, (especially if one or more should happen to die) they will become like gods. They are practically living gods as it is. Can you imagine what they will become when they are no longer with us? No, I am not on drugs. I see the future clearly.

I agree. To hold the #1 position for 51 years (before being overtaken by The Stones at Glastonbury) is truly amazing. They will always have my love and respect. They are truly the 2nd greatest rock 'n roll band of all time!
I'm just curious. How is it that the Stones' appearance at a festival that didn't even exist during The Beatles' time was the catalyst for them overtaking The Beatles? Is it because of their age? If that's the case, why didn't they overtake them during this last tour? Or the previous tour? Or the tour before that? Or the one before that? How come their appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival in 2007 didn't push them past The Beatles?

This has all been explained over and over and over and over and over and over......

Amazing. Simply amazing.


BRAVO! BRAVOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thank you Gumboot. Breaking on through to the other side, like a few others aroudn here, as usual.

No, it hasn't. I don't recall you ever mentioning the Isle of Wight Festival. That's why I asked. How come their appearance at that festival, a festival that many of their contemporaries have performed at, wasn't the one that pushed them past The Beatles? Unlike Glastonbury, this festival actually dates back to the late 60s. But it wasn't until 2007 that The Stones performed there. Wasn't that a historic gig? If it was, why wasn't it so historic that it pushed them past The Beatles? I'm curious as to what your thoughts are on that.

Or did you have to wait until Mick turned 70 before you could declare them the greatest? Why that number? Why not 60? or 50?

Based on everything I have written on this subject what is your best guess as to why you think I didn't "crown" them (in my own mind) six years ago in 2007? If your guess is incorrect then I will provide you with the correct one.

Gumboot, I'm unhappy to inform you - or perhaps happy to inform you, ha ha! - that whatever you say won't be "right"!

HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHAH AHAAAAAAAAAAAA!

What helps the Beatles legacy is that they never had a proper reunion, so we're just left to speculate as to how great it would've been (maybe it would've sucked who knows)

John died young. George passed when he should've had so much life to go...with them gone it sort of elevated the Beatles legend even higher. Plus you don't speak ill of the dead.

What if all 4 were still around, nearing elderly age and still sniping each other in the press...maybe we'd look at the Beatles and say "man they're pathetic, still can't get it together"

Seriously, if the Stones don't remove that overdub to the intro to SMU at Hyde Park (on the soon to be released DVD) I will be moving on. I have let them know how I feel about it, so lets hope they "do the right thing" and restore the original.

I suggest you begin watching episodes of the 50's television series the Lone Ranger. I am recommending the box set with all 221 episodes. It might teach you a thing or two about respecting those that are much older and wiser than you.
