I still believe the Beatles to be the greatest group of all time, but one should know when the time has come when you're no longer relevant.

And SNR, we baby boomers actually knew our parents generation of entertainers quite well; they ruled the TV set/radio and we didn't have all sorts of alternative media to flock to.

Paul is irrelevant in mainstream music. The only people who are buying his latest album are people who can't let go of the thought of a band from about 50 years ago.

My disdain for all things Beatles aside... Paul as a singer/musician is pretty much done.

1. 95% of popular music is crap. Also, 95% of popular music in the 60's and 70's was crap. I am relying on pure faith to hold true that forty years from now, people will forget all of the current crap and only remember the really good groundbreaking stuff - and, for that matter, that there is and groundbreaking stuff at all.

2. When you've never known anything but a world in which all of the Beatles' accomplishments have already taken hold, you will have a really hard time grasping the implications of just how game-changing they really were. The same holds true for a lot of other bands. If someone is aware of a monumentally influential band and chooses not to at least listen to them anyway, then I reserve the right to ignore their opinions.

3. Anyone reading this who has kids, or is a kid, who doesn't know of the Beatles, should educate themselves on them immediately - not for our benefit, or to prove us right or something, but for their own growth. I recommend Sergeant Pepper, Abbey Road, and the White Album. And while you're at it, after you're done with the Beatles, run out and get the Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, the Doors' self-titled album, Led Zeppelin IV, and the Police's Sychronicity.

While it's totally cool to like or dislike whatever you want, that's a terrible reason. I like/dislike bands entirely based on how much I like/dislike their music... I couldn't give two cups of piss if it's popular or obscure.

It wasn't other people's opinions... though that did not help matters. I honestly don't like their sound. Some songs are ok but overall there was no hatred in my heart for them until the anthology came out. Constantly on TV, my friends fawning over each "new" release. Then my eventual statement that I did not like them and the inevitable argument over how great the band was.

Didn't like them before the anthology... hated them after.

Wow, just wow. The history of the Beatles, always had a history of blues...Chuck Berry et al. And later developed their own sound. Most modern, not cotton candy bands, rock bands have studied the Beatles. They became the "gold standard" of rock sounds. If you listen to the wide varity of there songs, from "Rocky Raccon" to "Come together" their diversity was huge. Their talent from George Harrison- see "While my guitar gently weeps", to "Silly Love Songs" which was written by Paul in retort to John's comment after the break up bout Paul can't write anything but silly love songs:)

They re-wrote rock. Can't deny their genious. You can hear it in all serious rock bands (exclude cotton candy bands/hip hop/rap...and most the crap the kids listen to today:( )

And I'm not a big fan of the Beatles....I just appreciate their cutting edge at the time. Each of their albums had ?? 5 time told classics. What band can say that?

Some one check me on that.

Too say "Who's Paul " in music is like saying "who's Abe" to history.
But at that age, I thought Elton John was the bomb.
