Re: The Beatles

Again, there's a major difference in perspective; whether you were part of the times AS The Beatles grew musically, or if you came later, having heard so much music post-Beatles first, and then hearing the Fab Four with a retro perspective and ear.

It's heartening to read so many "younger" (under 40) people posting favorable comments.

But there are those who can't separate the music since the Beatles from the contribution and evolution of mainstream rock that the Beatles were when they were first popular. Like saying silent films are crap because they're in black and white, the acting is over-exaggerated and there's no sound.

I've been in rock radio for 33 years and NO one group has made such an evolutionary contribution to mainstream rock as the Beatles. They evolved tremendously in their short career. Rubber Soul and Revolver are two of my all-time favorite albums.
