@vanessa I would argue that ‘if you were there’ chances are that you couldn’t hear anything!

To me I would have the Beatles over the Stones any day – but still not a band I go back to a lot … as I think I said … they are all just there in me

But there are few bands in the history of music that I think shaped what was going on and are remembered that way … eg – something like sgt peppers today still holds as music – but at the time was so revolutionary that it stood out in other ways, so the context makes it even more important. Just check out billboard and / or NME for what other albums and musicians were doing at exactly the same time … and it all falls into place.
