I'm more of a Stones fan, but the Beatles are simply the second biggest act in rock history.
Second? I'm more of the mind that they're the undisputed number 1.
I tend to agree though, I'm not as big of a fan as others are of The Beatles. I do think their music is good. It's not hard to understand why they were big; they were the first to do what they did. But their musical style has been copied wholesale an infinite number of times by now, so it's kind of hard for the magic of that sound to *not* be diluted to younger generations.
