There have been many great artists and bands before and after The Beatles, but why do you think The Beatles were and are still so popular?
The Beatles 1 was released in 2000 and has sold over 31 million worldwide. Their 2009 box set of remasters has sold over 30 million units worldwide.
The biggest artists of today such as Adele, Eminem and Lady Gaga dont sell that many. Certainly popularity alone isnt always a sign of quality, but consistantly high sales and popularity for 40 to 50 years, and still running, has to have some significance in relation to quality. Millions of people worldwide think their music has quality.
Who are your favorites? How do The Beatles compare to other great artists who came before and after, and to those who influenced and were influenced by them. How does their solo work compare to their work as a band. Are there any artists who have not been influenced by The Beatles?
