When I married a Peruvian and started come to Peru 20 years ago I was surprised to find that the Beatles were idolized even more over here than in the U.S. which I find entirely justified . There is even a giant statue of John Lennon in one the main parks in Lima. When I first got here half the bands were Beatle clone bands and some of them were so good the only thing that was different were the accents of the singers. There is still an 'hora de The Beatles' at noontime on one of the FM stations here everyday. I guess the funny thing is that the Brits years ago kept our American blues alive and fed it back for us and now we keep the Beatles alive, you will thank us for it someday as all those bands you mentioned would probably not exist if it weren't for the Beatles, and McCartney was the first 'lead' bass player before Entwistle, Jack Bruce (who I love) JPJ. Roger hardly even played on those albums you know. I saw him here 2 or 3 years ago and he only played a couple of songs had a bass player onstage the whole time playing most of the songs, was a great concert though.
