oh, i def do and i def agree. i'm not saying that the beatles weren't geniuses or important. i'm simply saying that i'm starting to think that the rolling stones have turned out to be more important and influential than the beatles were. they were the original rock n roll bad boys. they were fucking exiled out of their own country when they made one of the top 3 rock albums of all time. they worked with musicians across the spectrum. they played a hge part in bringing reggae to the mainstream. they even penned what is probably the best 'comeback' album of all time when ppl thought they were washed. they made themselves relevant in the disco/new wave era for fucks sake! their ethos and ourve (look it up, balls) become influential to everyone from billy idol to NWA. that is why i think that, over time, they have slowly become more influential than the beatles.
Pretty Bacon thing to do to both use and misspell oeuvre.
