I guess you could say that.
One thing for sure the Beatles are bigger than the 60's.
By October 1972, the Beatlesí worldwide sales total stood at 545 million units. To date The Beatles record sales are over 1 billion units worldwide.
I'm not a big Beatles guy, but you can't overrate them. It's impossible to downplay their significance, impossible to overstate their influence.
I'm more of a Stones fan, but the Beatles are simply the second biggest act in rock history.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
