    I knew it was a mistake to join in this thread. It's getting ugly...:thumbsdown:

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    I'd argue John and Paul were better than Freddie. Ringo is often cited as the best rock drummer EVER - he's not showy, but he does the job rock-solid. And George is the lead. He's also not showy but more than competent. But a band isn't about individual musicianship - it's how the factors...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Obviously you're objective about this. :rolleyes All four Beatles had distinctive personalities well-known by the general public. All four Beatles had successful solo careers. And all four Beatles have quite a sense of humor. Ever see their movies? Lotsa comedy there. Who were Queen...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Some of it, sure. But much of the later-years Beatles sounds dated as well. I don't knock later-years Beatles, though I remain convinced Sgt. Pepper's is arguably the most overrated album ever (and I LIKE it). I just don't like the general dismissals of early-years Beatles, as I think much of...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    So those of us who prefer early Beatles to late are just buying into "hype"? :confused: If anything, we go AGAINST the grain - most people reflexively accept that 1967-1969 was the golden era. I'll still take A Hard Day's Night over any subsequent albums. And not a cover tune on it! :D
