Still The Greatest Band Of All TimeLots of people say "they were the best." I say they ARE the best. Until you can show me somebody better, I will continue to say so. They did so much in such a short time and the music is still popular and sounds so fresh. It must have been so cool to be around during their time. A lot of people my age bounce from one "popular" act to another. Who's famous today is forgotten about tomorrow.
As I stated in another story somewhere, I learned of them because of my father. He's a good musician, song writer and singer. He is always playing The Beatles. We were recently listening to "I Saw Her Standing There" when my younger sister came in with one of her friends. Her friend said "who is this? It sounds so lively." Imagine her shock to find out the song was probably older than her parents. They always looked so cool too. The Beatles rocked and sang ballads. They had such great melodies and their voices blended so remarkably well that they must have been sent from heaven.
Today's generation can have their flashes in the pan. The Beatles music will never grow old or be forgotten.
