no question in my mind that the stones and the beatles were the foremost bands of the british invasion. i wasn't crazy about most of their music, then, but each had some good songs.
i went crazy when i heard ' satisfaction". it was the coolest song i ever heard.many years have passed and it is time to really listen to the great musicianship these bands and others contributed to the world of music.i never listened to words, i was a 'beat" guy. if it rocked, was good enough for me. now, i am listening and it is good!
the stones' staying power is incredible. most marriages don't last as long as these boys have been able to do.
