In this 2008 interview asking Keith Richards who the five greatest bands ever are besides The Rolling Stones,and he said obviously he puts The Beatles in there.This was of course 6 years before he ridiculously criticized The Beatles brilliant Sgt.Pepper album that The Rolling Stones tried but failed to copy and equal.

Keith says in this interview,but he's not going to say The Who or Led Zeppelin because he'd be lying because they are not his favorites.

In this August 1971 interview in Rolling Stone Magazine that I posted on here a few days ago, Keith says that The Rolling Stones in their early days experienced hysteria like Beatlemania from female fans,and screaming where they couldn't be heard while playing live and that there were no monitors in those days.

He also says that The Beatles are so f***ing good at what they did it's a shame they broke up in such a tatty way.

The Beatles wrote and played 50 years worth of mostly great ( and what wasn't great was still good) popular,critically acclaimed,diverse music in only an amazing 8 year recording career and no other band or solo artist has ever done this before,during or since.And they wrote countless great rock n roll,rock and even some hard rock,but they didn't just write rock music because they were so creative and diverse,they wrote all types of great music even though they were primarily a great *rock band*.

Their music is also the most covered of all time by every type of music artists,Motown,jazz,classical,pop,rock,and even heavy metal with the 2006 heavy metal Beatles tribute album,Butchering The Beatles:A Headbashing Tribute produced by grammy award winning producer guitarist and guitar player in the group kiss,Bob Kulick featuring many hard rock and heavy metal musicians including big Beatles fan Lemmy from Motorhead etc

Ozzy Osbourne has been a big Beatles fan since he was an early teenager,and he picked She Loves You as one of his favorite songs for Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest songs and Sgt.Pepper is one of his favorite albums. He says that not loving The Beatles is like not loving oxygen and he called The Beatles the greatest band to ever walk the earth. Ozzy Osbourne said in a youtube video that for some reason was removed, that he doesn't think anyone will ever be as great as The Beatles and he said they were all great,even George Harrison and Ringo Starr were great.

There is a youtube video of Ozzy Osbourne meeting Paul McCartney for the first time and they hug each other

Ozzy Osbourne says how hearing She Loves You at age 15 inspired him to go into music

In a youtube video both Ozzy Osbourne and Tom Petty praise The Beatles,the early Beatles in this clip but The Beatles in general.

In 2016 Ozzy Osbourne and his son went to Cuba and visited a John Lennon statue there,and his son asked Ozzy if he is team John Lennon or Paul McCartney,and Ozzy said both and that for him Lennon and McCartney are the best thing that ever happened.

As The All Music Guide says in their extensive excellent Beatles biography written by Richie Unterberger "That it's difficult to summarize their career without restating cliches that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans, to start with the obvious,they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century."

"Moreover they were among the few artists of *any* discipline that were simultaneously the best at what they did *and* the most popular at what they did." They also say as singers John Lennon and Paul McCartney were among the best and most expressive in rock.

Also on Music Radar Tom Petty,Joe Perry and Richie Sambora in What The Beatles Mean To Me all say how great they thought The Beatles were when they first saw them on The Ed Sullivan Show in February 1964 when they were just teen boys,Richie was only 5.Tom Petty said he thought they were really really great.And Alan White from the group Yes is also interviewed.

Robin Zander of Cheap Trick said he's probably one of the biggest Beatles fans on the planet. Brad Whitford of Aerosmith said that a lot of that Beatles influence comes from Steven Tyler's collaboration with Mark Hudson both whom are absolute Beatles freaks and he said I guess the goal is to try and emulate probably some of the best music of the last 50 years which has to be The Beatles.

Here are many great reviews of The early Beatles albums by Brian Passey for USA Today's The Spectrum music page and here is his review of Please Please Me The Beatles Debut Album Was Just The Beginning he says the album was the beginning of something special, and says actually it wasn't just special it was monumental, it was the biggest thing to happen to rock n roll since it's invention a few years earlier. He then says, it was the beginning of the greatest band in history of not just rock n roll but of popular music.

Here in this 1977 interview with Eric Clapton he says that there was always this game( meaning guitar) between John and George and he said partly because John was a pretty good guitar player himself.

A guy Ken who runs cool very good The Rolling Stones, John Lennon and Keno's Classic Rock n Roll sites says in his great 2017 review of The Beatles first album Please Please Me, that they were different from any other bands and music artists before them because they wrote, sang and played their own songs and before them music groups had professional song writers writing songs for them, he said John and Paul not only wrote great songs on Please Please Me, but that John and Paul were both great lead singers who couldn't be beat at the time, and that they were on their way to becoming the greatest rock and roll band ever.

He also said that the album had rock and pop songs and that it starts with Paul's I Saw Her Standing There which he calls pure rock and roll, and he said John's vocal on Twist And Shout,(which John sang so great with a bad sore throat from a bad cold) was hard rock before any hard rock was being done.

One of the greatest songwriters of all-time also helped write the book on rock and roll bass guitar.

This great article from classic rock radio station Q104.3 very accurately says in the description of The Beatles 1963 live performance of Paul's great rocking song I Saw Her Standing There,that Paul was already a killer bassist by the time the band broke through in America,his line from I Saw Her Standing There positively cooks with rock n roll walking bass excitement!

In this PDF file of several chapters from the book The Beatles And Their Revolutionary Bass Player by bass player Dennis Alstrand,he explains that Paul' McCartney's bass playing was already first rate in 1961 only months after he learned to play it which he got stuck with because John and George didn't want to play it, and he was not a bad bass player by 1963 and you can hear on The Beatles 1963 and 1964 recordings and live playing that he was already very good even on such primitive,limited sound systems with no feedback monitors so they couldn't even hear themselves singing and playing yet they still sang and played great and in sync with each other

And very limited,primitive recording technology recording technology and many people said this about his bass playing too in reviews of the remastered The Beatles Live At The Hollywood Bowl album and I could hear this too just from 3 minutes of samples on amazon.com.

Many people also said you can hear George Harrison's great guitar playing,Ringo's great underrated drumming,and John Lennon's underrated great rhythm guitar playing, and Paul became a great bass player starting on The Beatles late 1965 Rubber Soul album.

35 Year old Beatles and music scholar Arron Krerowicz plays many instruments & writes his own music too

FAQ

You claim to be a “professional Beatles scholar”. What exactly does that mean? It means that I have no professional responsibilities other than analyzing, writing, and speaking about The Beatles....

Here Aaron is interviewed recently on the youtube channel Musical U for Beatles month about how even the early Beatles were inventive in the chords they wrote and played.
