when people ask who i like better the beatles or the stones i scoff.
theres no competition.
theres only one band that matters out of that pairing and id argue that some of it has to do with showmanship, since rock n roll is part spectacle.
and sorry lads but playing on top of a building doesnt cut it.
even if it was a tie, the winner would go to the lead man, in which case you have to give it to the stones because seriously who’s a better front man than mick jagger?
hes right up there with elvis, james brown, michael jackson, and prince – even though he cant sing better or dance better than any of them.
in fact Because of that, id call him the greatest star in rock
next to jimi.
happy birthday anyway, old man.
