    The above was originally posted by Ferrari_UK in this thread... i figured it's worthy of a poll; what say you? Are the Stones better than the Beatles or is it the other way around...?

    Stones all the way...our family friend used to work for Virgin Records America and worked with them quite often. They autographed a guitar for him-saw it and it is one of the coolest things I have seen-huge fan!

    i think the Beatles are far a better band look how much they have influenced the music world. Have the Stones done half what the Beatles have?

    Stones for me. IMO they have more range in their songs. Beatles never stirred any musical emotions in me.

    Wow, this is closer than i thought it would be... i thought the Beatles would pull through, hands down... i agree with Pat, the Beatles have had so much influence on music... Just as much - maybe even more - than Elvis... The Beatles bloody rock...! They were way ahead of their time and still managed to always be at the top... Always on the cutting edge of what people wanted to hear next...

    Well, the Stones are a band that has keep it together plus how many great songs can you name.

    Jagger is one of my fav singers.

    The Beatle, IMHO are technically better musicians also with a great many good songs. I prefer Brown Sugar over Hey Jude personally. But both are great.

    McCartney is one of the world's best bass guitar players IMHO.

    So I vote Led Zep.

    "Beatles never stirred any musical emotions in me." -rob

    OMG, well I think that they are the best rock band period! Including back to Strauss (not quite rock, but you get my drift) to modern day. They have stirred more musical emotion for me, and millions others, with their early stuff and it just kept getting better and better! From about '67 on the Beatles could be considered the gods of music, IMO.

    Especially when Ringo was singing. That stirred up emtions in me. I wanted to strangle him.

    I don't see Led Zeppelin on that list, so I'll vote Beatles. I tire of the Stones quickly, but I almost always have a Beatles CD in the changer.

    Losito, it's not a "best band" poll, rather a question as to who everyone thinks is a better band; The Beatles or The Stones... Best Band was a different thread, started by Bruce, about a month ago...

    Well, the Zep comment was a sort of a tongue in cheek type thing, I didn't really expect you to have 'em on the list. Kenny94945 agreed with me!

    I would categorize the Beatles closer to "easy listening" and a pop band as opposed to Stones who because of the rawness are more strictly a rock 'n roll band . And because of the edginess, the Stones will become tiring to listen to sooner than the Beatles . Writing styles were also very different - Lennon/McCartney/Harrison were a dominating song factory for a long time. The Glimmer Twins were almost in a completely different musical genre(sp) . As musicans, toss up..McCartney one of best in several aspects, Ringo vs Charlie Watts ,,,Watts...Stones music seemed to be more complex ...to my untrained ear. If I was on a desert island I would want the "White" album along with "Beggars Banquet" , "Let It Bleed" , "Exile on Main ST" and "Goats Head Soup".

    PS. Just follow up opinions , I didn't cast another vote.
