    Beside the stones I don’t think any of these really come close to the Beatles but that’s just my taste

    Of course it’s gonna vary person to person I was just curious who you had up there

    Added some more thoughts to my post. Like I said I got no problem with them being a 1. I like a good bit of their stuff. The early cheesy stuff is important, but not for me. Just think others did it better.

    For my money the song writing duo of Garcia/Hunter is the best. Certainly not for everyone though.

    Also a shame they broke up and John was killed later. Like Hendrix and many others that died young it would have been amazing to see where their music could have gone as sounds and styles and themes changed.

    Re: Grateful Dead -- isn't a lot of music pretty profound when you add psychedelic drugs?

    I was never particularly into that band or that scene, but Long Strange Trip the Amazon prime documentary mini-series about them them isis excellent. I had a new respect for those guys after seeing that.

    The parallels between that movement and modern day festival culture, Juggalos, etc. I also found interesting.

    I agree it doesn't sound like the rest of the record and could understand why someone wouldn't like it, but also don't think you can compare it to Wild Honey Pie.

    I was an homage to some of the music that inspired them the most and provided a window from which a casual listener not familiar with that stuff could view their inspirations.

    I also like the slide guitar on it which I don't think they had done frequently prior to that.

    I think Led Zeppelin is the best band but I don't have any issues with people saying the Beatles. Obviously they are a phenomenon and people who know more about music than I do tend to say they are the best. I have never really been able to get into them and I've never really been that interested in doing so.

    There was a really good interview with a Ken Mansfield on NPR today, who was one of the only people on the roof that day. He wrote a book about it.

    It’s easy to forget their lineup was only together for about 8 years. In that time, they produced like 30 No. 1s in a time where songs from albums weren’t released as singles, so a good chunk of their best work (Strawberry Fields Forever, Drive My Car, A Day in the Life, She’s Leaving Home, etc.) weren’t even counted.

    He was pretty amazing in his own right. In all the track sessions they ever did for albums (thousands of takes), there were only eight where he was the one who screwed up.

    Ringo was the last one to record as a Beatle, doing some overdub work with Phil Spector on one of the Let It Be songs.

    They were pioneers and legends. Artists today have 70 years of music to look at for inspiration. They created so many new musical concepts from scratch.

    The Rick Rubin and McCartney series on Hulu is phenomenal. Basically just focusing on the music and the songs that Paul sang.

    Rubin is one of the most prolific producers in music history and he just loses his mind at what the Beatles and George Martin were doing.

    The Peter Jackson doc about the Beatles that eventually will be on D+ will surely be outrageously good.

    The master cut of Maxwell’s Silver Hammer has an audible chuckle from Paul included (the part where he sings “writing 50 times”) from when John mooned him from the engineer’s studio.

    Watched all 6 eps of the Rick Rubin/Paul McCartney doc on Hulu yesterday. A lot of the info was a repeat from this book, so it's good to know Paul doesn't change his stories every time haha. Still was a good watch. Watching Paul demonstrate stuff on a guitar/piano is definitely better than reading in a book. Rubin comes off like a starry eyed fan, just says "wow, great" to everything.

    Also fun to see what Paul does/doesn't know about music theory. He's self taught but he knows plenty of obscure chord voicings and whatnot. At one point he's showing Rick Rubin a chord he used in Michelle. He calls it "F demented."

    1. There's no such thing as a demented chord, that would be "diminished" Sir Paul
    2. It was actually an E7#9

    The story about Jimi Hendrix covering the title track from Sgt. Pepper's three days after it came out was really good. I knew about the cover, but I didn't know the part where Eric Clapton was in the audience. Hendrix did the song to open the set, then his guitar was way out of tune from all the whammy barring he did. He starts trying to retune (apparently without a pedal) and is having a little trouble and looks out to the audience and says "Eric? Is Eric Clapton here?" And Clapton is covering his face trying not to be seen
