    I love the Beatles too...Revolver is their best album, Sgt. Pepper is a close second. Some of the Stones songs are great, like Paint it Black and Gimme Shelter.

    I think Sgt. Pepper is the greatest album of all time but just imagined if it featured Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane. It would've been untouchable!

    I know...I thought for the longest time I was the only one in the world who loved Sgt. Pepper. I think I played that album to death. Great forum debate!

    I'm with the Beatles as well. They have more layers to their sound and even though they didn't last as long, I think they have the deeper impact in pop culture.

    Sgt Peppers is a great album, but I listen to the Rolling Stones more often than the Beatles. Charlie Watts is a wonderful drummer, for starters. Many of the best rock bands have drummers that started in jazz bands: Charlie Watts, Ginger Baker, and I believe Mitch Mitchell as well. Cheers.

    Glad you mentioned Ginger Baker because he happens to be one of my favorite drummers! As far as greatest groups, Cream would get plenty of nods if they'd stayed together longer!

      Agreed, Cream shined very brightly, but for only a couple of years. Jimi Hendrix could have developed into an interesting player if he had a chance to mature, not that he wasn't  interesting already! But with maturity he might have gone to some places we wouldn't expect.
