    Some people say that they were not as good as other bands at the time.

    What do you know about this??

    My own feeling is that they only played things that fit the song.

    Argh!! Not more!!

    The Beatles were competent at their instruments, from a technical point of view, but not virtuoso. But, they were nevertheless very innovative.

    Can any of these other bands claim to be as successful? Do any of those other bands have more recognizable tunes? Has any one of those other bands changed the world?

    They were absolute masters at writing songs on their instruments. Good enough for me . . .

    They wrote great songs, and they could sing! Even more than than their guitar playing.

    Now disappear.
