on me, i have heard some of the beatles' music, but i have to say, (with the exception of "hey jude") it hasnt excited me that
are over-rated, whatever anyone says, they
are certainly not the best band ever. as for influential, i'd say bob dylan, led zepplin, van halen and iron maiden are more influential. i think the reason they were
so popular in the 60's was that they were
something new that
no-one had really seen before
. i do like
"hey jude" though.
