    I’m also a Stones fan. But no denying, the Beatles set the bar.

    From everything I've ever heard/read, it is true. I've heard/read more than once that John was pissed when Paul broke the news to the press before he did, because he was the one who said he was going to leave, then Paul kinda went behind his back and announced that they were breaking up before consulting John about it.

    LOL it was pretty much a death blow. "One band is still selling out stadiums, and one band doesn't exist." Me-ow!

    I guess if Paul and Ringo wanted to tour as the Beatles, they could find a bunch of non members as well. Kinda like the Stones and Journey….OUCH!!

    Since the stones are just a blues cover band I guess we have about 12 bars to choose from.

    Whereas since you are repping McC.. I'm guessing you want to fight at a ditty par..:D

    yeah..that all just seem kinda *****y really. But they were a couple.

    My take, based on how it played out at the time and afterwards was simply that it was more likely John just because he was the one that wanted to go off in a different direction, ie, Sleep-Ins, heavily political anti-war involvement, exploring more avant garde forms of expression.

    Paul was more into It's Just Another Day and Silly Little Love Songs.
    John was always the "edge".

    The whole was more than the sum of it's parts when it comes to those two. That's what made them special. The tension and balance.

    They both lost what the other brought to the table, and IMO neither ever really bested their combined talents.

    I agree. The stew was better than the individual ingredients.

    I do think George was the man. Yet he got no credit.

    The Beatles imploded in 1970. The Stones have continued to produce music for 50 years after that. Exactly what Beatles albums have they been copying all those years? They've had 15 albums since then (not including a dozen live albums, two dozen compilations, and another dozen bootlegs officially released).

    What exactly have the Stones been "copying" since the 70's?
