It all stems down to the fact that four amazing musicians grew up within minutes and months of each other in a post-industrial city in postwar England. If Paul hadn't gone to see the Quarrymen that day, if he hadn't rode the bus to school with George, if they hadn't run into the best drummer in Liverpool while in Hamburg, how much of that music to come would we have been denied?

And if it hadn't been for all those overlooked old bluesmen in the US, too.

I know and if Dylan hadn't introduced The Beatles to dope in 1964 they'd have probably never done Rubber Soul or Revolver.

To be fair, the boys themselves were always really good at recognizing and highlighting the music that influenced them.

Yes, they and the Stones both credited their sources well.

Even Oasis weren't shy in admitting they ripped off The Beatles 30 years later

I could never see the point of Oasis. They just seemed like a Beatles cover band in spirit. I'd rather listen to the Beatles themselves.

I preferred to listen to The Beatles at the time too, and actually they came out right when I was beginning to get properly obsessed with The Beatles as well.

I can't explain why I like them so much but I still listen to their first two albums very regularly and at the time they were one of my favorite bands.

Maybe it's because I was a teenager when the whole Britpop thing really took off in earnest, and was in the middle of my own musical awakening. I also liked Blur almost as much. I am a total sucker for anything 90s too.

We get attached to the music of our adolescence, almost irrespective of quality. I still like some really silly stuff from mine.

Brilliant. Do you get to wear rebellious-looking clothing and annoy the adults?

I guess I could buy a Packers shirt and kill two birds with one stone.

It's odd, when I was thinking of growing up, it seemed that it was a bit 'tribal', that one was either a Beatles or Stones person ... at that point I was Beatles (I blame my mum for that).

If I remember correctly, there was a similar 'tribal' thing going on much later with Oasis and Blur?

Blur, me

I don't know if it was the same in the 60s (Beatles all the way ) but I liked both Oasis and Blur in the 90s and I think a lot of that 'rivalry' was made up or exaggerated. I still liked Oasis I little better because they had a heavier sound.

There was.

And Ocean Colour Scene slipped under the radar
