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

Martin makes a good point....it was talent and timing. Im sure tons of people wrote the band off as the "Newest thing" and the "latest fad" initially only to be stunned as each album seemingly got better and better. Usually the quality starts to fade after each release but with the Beatles it was the exact opposite.

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

Sometime in the next 100 years a musical group will hit the scene and take the world by storm. People will hail their music as phenomenal...people will declare them geniuses...but people will be wrong, because people in the future will have terrible taste. Their brains will have shrunk. Witness the current state of popular entertainment. Our brains are shrinking as I speak.

You're right. The music industry especially didn't think the Beatles would last. Richard Lester talks about the pressure he was under to get "A Hard Days Night" shot and edited and in the theatres quickly before the Beatles popularity died away.

It all depends on whether music as a whole has a future.
