were the BEATLES over rated as a band an as musicians?
Don`t get me wrong the era of revolver on to abby road at the end are SOME of my favorite music,i did not care as much for the early can`t buy me love era songs,but time an music has moved on, an a lot of garbge sterile junk is out there but over the last 40 years since the beatles there have been SOME amazeing talents ,an after the beatles broke up not much of any of them was up to par as they were as a group,the first few McCartney albums were very good ,an some of the songs on lennons were great to, mostly the mind games era, wonder wall by Harrison was real good but that was about it tell cloud 9 an some wilberrys ,ringo well a couple songs were not bad but that's about it,lennon an McCartney were great melody man an oustanding writers an were great ,but did they deserve this almost demonic spell there music has had over the mass`s of the world as the greatest band of all time?there are many,many great bands out there but none seem to have grabbed the minds of the planet at that level,maybe led zeppelin,rolling stones or pink Floyd came kinda close but not really,SO whats up with that?bonghit

Music is subjective. Over rated is in the ear of the beholder. The beatles were no one-hit-wonder. That may be the only measure we can make.

Re: were the BEATLES over rated as a band an as musicians?
The Beatles were a band where the sum was far greater than its parts. That is such a rarity that it creates magic when it happens. While none of them were great musicians individually, what they lacked in skill they more than made up for in creativity and chemistry.

Ringo, technically was a pretty average drummer, but if you look beyond that and critique his creativity in how he approached and played the song, it was genius. The music is timeless and classic because of it.

That's flat-out absurd.

While nobody in the Beatles was a virtuoso, or a 'musical genius', they were not at all similar to the casting call assemblies like N Sync.

I think the Beatles' later work, the drug-addled 'artist' era, was extremely overrated however. Of course, it's what gets all the critical acclaim by 'rock journalists', but those people know as much about music as Barack Obama knows about successfully running an economy.

Re: were the BEATLES over rated as a band an as musicians?
This makes me sad. The Beatles crafted songs like no one before them. Not just interpreting music, like Elvis(the man that made the Beatles possible) but with pen, paper, and instrument. They opened the doors,that have since been closed, to every song you loved. How dare you

Re: were the BEATLES over rated as a band an as musicians?
The evolution of this band was startling when you look at what they did from beginning to end - in just 7 short years they went from Please Please Me to Let it Be.

They were way ahead of their time and everyone tried to copy what they were doing along the way.

Their legacy is unrivaled today and will remain so forever. They were simply at the right place at the right time and not only defined a generation, they defined an era.
