Which Band Do You Prefer – The Beatles or the Rolling Stones? [POLL]

On Saturday June 8th Sir Paul McCartney, who turned 71 on Tuesday, performed at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn. Tuesday night the Rolling Stones who are also in their seventies, performed their 50th anniversary tour at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia where they will again perform Friday night. Since both are circling New Jersey, this brings up a question that’s been argued for the last fifty years. Who’s better? The Beatles or the Stones?

Both are immortal. The Beatles broke up in 1970 with a body of work that lasted little more than 7 years. The Rolling Stones, though still together, really haven’t had a major hit since 1981’s “Start Me Up”

The two bands have always been close. The Stones first hit was a Beatles song called “I Wanna Be Your Man” It was George Harrison who recommended that Decca sign the Stones after the record company passed on the fabs. ( I wonder how long that guy kept his job.) Mick Jagger was in the audience when the Beatles recorded “All You Need Is Love”

An angry John Lennon in 1970 once said “I think Mick’s a joke and got jealous.” “ I’d like to just list what we did and what the stones did 2 months after on every @#$$ album, and everything we did and Mick does the same he imitates us.”
