Reminds me of a debate at the Oxford Union in the late '90s on who was the greatest - Oasis or the Beatles. Absurd comparison really, though Oasis were very big at that time. After several hours of debate with the great and good from the music sphere all over the world, the vote was UNANIMOUS that the Beatles were totally peerless. Most of those who voted were born after the band broke up, with very few aged over 30.

Never heard of Oasis. British band?

I hope that someday we can put aside our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.

Oasis = The Gallagher Brothers, Noel and Liam, sort of a 90s Genesis or Yes

Hard to describe "Beatlemania" to someone who wasn't around for it.

I saw them live 3 times, and grew up with the phenomina: smoked my first joint to the Sgt Peppers and took my first hit of Acid to the White Album.

Post pill, pre aids and before needles became common:England in the late 60s was a great place to be for music, and the 70s were just as good.

So many stories, and yes (Sir) Paul is as nice a guy as he always seems on TV: to work with (for!) him was a high spot of my showbiz career smile

It's rarely rocket science, it's usually just math: then again if you can't do the math.......

although Oasis was pretty good, and i have a bunch of their stuff downloaded, they were never in catagory with the Beatles (other than some tunes having similar sound). and must agree with pug (did i say that?): blotter and the white album were just meant to be ingested together. JMHO.
