"Surely the Beatles has to be up there with the best
Oh! You mean the first Boy Band? Possibly the single biggest marketing ploy in the history of the world, and yes, for a couple of months, Love Me Do and Please Please Me, I was suckered in. Then The Rolling Stones came into view, and that was it .... love 'em to bits, even now. However, my favourite band of all time, if I had to choose just one, would be Cream. Ginger Baker, universally recognised as a fabulous drummer, Jack Bruce, power bassist and singer/writer of much good stuff, and of course, Clapton ...... before he got pretentious and carried away with his own hype ....
Actually, the Rolling Stones were a much bigger marketing ploy than the Beatles ever were. They were presented as anti- establishment bad boys, whereas they were actually quite posh. Jagger being the biggest social climbing snob in rock history. They did some decent stuff in the sixties, once the Beatles had given them a helping hand, but were never leaders, just followers of previous styles or whatever was popular at the time. Can't stand Jagger now as he mingles with the elite and tries to pretend he is cultured.
