  3. A quote from the bio of an old friend of mine making folk records now:


    "...The Beatles are also high on my list. But then again, whose list AREN'T they on. I mean, come on they're the Beatles. Anyone that dislikes the Beatles is clearly stupid and should be mocked thoroughly..."

    :D

    I don't know exactly, I think it's a little band from ol'england. But they play quite bad, don't think they will be successfully anytimes.

    Actually I just thought this is a nice picture to show us all.

    Weren't they England's version of the Monkees....or something like that? :D
     
  6. The Fab Four have had a profound effect on pop music.McCartney is more than just a "frustrated guitarist", he is a unique bassist and an all around musician. However,there are many bands that have left their mark in music history.It would take a long time to answer your question in full length.

    True; they were actually The Beatless(a typo gave us the name we all know)...
    Too, The Beatles were the Fab Four & The Monkees were the Pre-Fab Four; so, I guess it was The Monkees(being "pre") that influenced/inspired The Beatles, huh?

    At Ft Chaffee Arkansas in December of 1981 I was interviewing Marielistos who were variously incarcerated or interned there and of course John Lennon was killed. The Spanish language camp paper had an Abbey Road photo of John and the headline, "Se Muerto John Lennon". One of the cubanos saw my copy of the paper on my desk and said, En la habana siempre oimos por el radio a los [phonetically] bay ah tlays. Later I tried to explain to another interviewer who had spent the late 60s and 70s in Paris the impact of the Beatles. They transformed popular music, I said. No they didn't, he said. I've never heard of them.

    Aren't they that Oasis rip-off band?
     
  15. I know it isn't possible to like every band under the sun,but,I know I could learn something from anyone.I particularly don't like the Greatful Dead;however,I read an interview with Bob Weir in an old issue of Guitar Player and he mentioned the use of partial chords in his band because of the necessity for clarity and not wanting to clutter the sound.Believe it or not,I've used that advice as a bassist and it has helped to give me my "sound".

    No Beatles fan here either.

    However, I will give credit where credit is due. They have influenced us all, who play rock, in an INDIRECT way.
     
  17. That's cool.I saw King's X in
    Virginia.They pay tribute to the Beatles.Listen to the vocal harmonies.During a guitar solo,Ty Tabor played a few notes from "Norwegian Wood."It was beautiful.

    Since someone who has influenced me...was perhaps himself, influenced by the Beatles....I will have to agree with Doug. But ONLY...indirectly. :D

    Thus you don't make music? ;)
    But, really, it is impossible that anyone was not influenced.

    That's it.
