I guess you could say that.
One thing for sure the Beatles are bigger than the 60's.
By October 1972, the Beatles’ worldwide sales total stood at 545 million units. To date The Beatles record sales are over 1 billion units worldwide.
I am not saying they weren't important. Plenty of my favorite bands cite them as influences. I am saying that I simply don't get it. Compared to what I have been listening to my entire life, with my musical tastes, I would rather just turn them off and put something else on.
