No. The Beatles were more than a band, they were a phenomenon, like Elvis and Dylan, they are one of a kind never to be repeated.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

no. I Think music is has much more variety now with many genres that would keep that from happening. lotsa people and lotsa different tastes.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

sadly No....but, some people might think so...

and actually believe it, too...

heck, I'd settle for a new rock group half as good nowadays...

but, that just me, and my old time rock and roll mentality...

because it's a good mentality to have.




(((please don't comment on my comment,

because it's just my comment)))



man, I need to put that on my signature

Not in our lifetimes...I doubt it. The Beatles were the right chemistry at the right time.
Plus an unGodly amount of talent...especially with that one boy who left us WAY too soon back in 1980.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

Never again....there will probably never be another Lennon or McCartney caliber songwriter alone let alone working together.

Case in Point-anyone remember how back in the 80's the two guys from Squueze were often compared to Lennon and McCartney?

Another case in point-Towards the end of the Beatles George Harrison was cranking out #1s. This would be like Timothy B Schmidt of the Eagles all of a sudden cranking out #1s.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

I'm the only yes vote, so allow me to explain. I feel that sometime in the future (probably not near) there will be another band that becomes a phenomenom like The Beatles. I doubt they will exist in my lifetime, but the future goes on a long way. Like, forever. I'm assuming that in the next few billion years a band will come into existance that has similar effects like the Beatles.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

It hasn't happened yet, but I predict they'll be music for at least another thousand years. Some band or bands are bound to come up with a stunning innovative sound that will take the world by storm during this time period. However, they will be hard pressed to even come close to the impact the Fab 4 had on the music world back in 1964.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

Equal in what way? I figure that there will be musical acts that will sell more record, or make more money on the sales of a particular album or something. But I can't imagine a band with the same innovative talent that with produce the same quality music that has the staying power of the Beatles.
People will probably try - and that will defeat them. The Beatles didn't seem to be trying to do anything special. It just happened. It poured right out. Pure Magic.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

The reason I voted no is bands these days are disposable,here today,gone later today. Record comapnies are not interestested in the next Beatles or even the next Stones,Who,Floyd,Sabbath for that matter.

The record companies are just interested in the next Jessica Simpson.

Of course there will be.

There are so many years and phenomenon to come it is out of this world.

Greatness comes in waves, there will be others.

No I don't think so, at least in my lifetime. Undoubtably, there will be some unique music coming around sometime in the future. What it will be and when who knows.

Re: Will there ever be another band to equal The Beatles?

One of my best friends once made the argument that we will never see what he calls "another uber-band"...certainly not within the pop/rock realm. After thinking about it for a long while, I think he may be right.

The Beatles had the perfect blend of pop hooks, cheekiness, sunny dispositions (at least in the early days) and raw talent and came at just the right time in history when world politics (particularly in the US) were being thrown into chaos and many folks were looking for relief.

Plus, you know, once a band like the Beatles comes along, the novelty wears off. There will never be a "new Beatles" because we've already seen that one before.

If a band or musical artist were ever to equal that level of success, it'd probably be in a different genre--perhaps one that hasn't even been invented yet.
