I've always thought it was pretty universal knowledge that The Beatles are head & shoulders above all other musical groups with their tremendous catalog of MUSIC, which after all should be the #1 measure of a musician....not dance moves or technological advancements. There has never been a band with all members contributing in both writing and vocals just incredible music. They had a lot of charisma, especially before the beards and hair of their more psychedelic years. I like a lot of bands and would like to someday see another Beatles, but they have set a very high bar.

just pulling this up I see there's a new Beatles related movie (with a twist) coming at the end of the month - Yesterday
