    Pictures of very young female fans screaming at The Rolling Stones as well as The Beatles in 1964 and at other music acts over the years.

    Here are pictures of the very early Rolling Stones in 1963 wearing matching suits and ties just like The early Beatles did with their fake cleaned up image their manager created for them in their early days and before The Rolling Stones manager created their fake exzaggerated ''bad boy'' image.

    Here are pictures of the very early Beatles wearing tight leather jackets and pants,when they played for 8 hours a night for two years from 1960–1962 in the thesleazy strip clubs in Hamburg Germany having to take speed pills to stay awake to do it

    The Beatles Tune In: Mark Lewisohn’s definitive account of ...



    For days after Christmas I didn't leave the sofa, enthralled by The Beatles Tune In, the first of three volumes in which Mark Lewisohn intends to tell the definitive story of the Beatles.

    In 1964 The Rolling Stones wrote and recorded a Rice Krispies TV commercial jingle not something cool like a cigarette ad and they also had teen girls screaming at their early concerts.I'm pretty certain The Beatles never wrote and recorded a jingle for a cereal TV commercial.But it's obvious that The Rolling Stones did this for the same reasons The Beatles went along with the fake cleaned up image their manager Brian Epstein created,to get their foot in the door after working their a*ses off playing for years.

    Here are The Rolling Stones live in 1963 and 1964 they don't sound better or even as good as The Beatles live then! They aren't even rocking.And on the Rolling Stones fan site,IORR a fan even said that up until 1966 The Beatles were the better live band and he said The Rolling Stones didn't become a great live band until 1969 and he linked to a 1967 Rolling Stones concert performance and said it's awful.















    Here is The Rolling Stones in 1963 performing the cover Roll Over Beethoven.








    Here are The Beatles also performing Roll Over Beethoven in 1964,and clearly their version is more rocking and better.










    The Beatles - Roll Over Beethoven (with Jimmy Nicol) - YouTube




    The Rolling Stones also wrote quite a few soft sentimental pop kind of songs,Lady Jane,As Tears Go By,Ruby Tuesday,Angie,Wild Horses,Waiting On A Friend,Happy etc and the 2 dreadful disco imitations,Miss You and Emotional Rescue. At least when Paul McCartney did a disco like song,Good Night tonight it was good interesting sounding music.




    I do really like some Rolling Stones songs though,but the songs i like the radio rarely ever play,like street Fighting Man,Monkey Man,Can't You Hear Me Knocking,Heart of Stone which I think is one of their best early songs,Let It Bleed and Happy which is a good but not great pop rock song.

    I'm going to make this short, but sweet, the Beatles weren't just popular, they were an extremely important part of the evolution of Rock as we know it. The two most important things that shaped rock as we know it were the Beatles and Blues.

    Not only this, but they are also probably the single most significant cultural band in history (culture/pop culture). Solo artist would have to be Elvis. So, their significance and popularity goes beyond just the music.

    The Beatles, who I dig a lot by the way, were only the first WELL-PACKAGED boy band. The Rolling Stones were not. Period.

    They had a lot of appeal to a mass audience came at a point in music history people were starved for new artist..but i did like the early stones too,
