It would be interesting to see the average age of those that do not like the Beatles. If heard when released , sound was about as good as it got.Nothing against any of them or their fans (and some have made quite important contributions to music):
The Rolling Stones
I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting. I actually like some songs, here and there, from some of these bands.
I love a lot of Floyd guitar work but not so much the overall music.
With the Dead I've heard "you have to be there" live to really appreciate them. I might have to see for myself if this pandemic ever ends.
I like a lot of Beatles tunes quite a bit, I'm just not fond of the Beatles' own performances of their own music (something about their vocals and overall tone).
This is funny...3. Bruce Springsteen. Whenever he comes on the radio, I immediately switch to a different channel unless the song is "I'm on Fire." When that song shows up, I put the balance all the way to the left so that the only thing I can hear is the drums....
I’m with you on this, although it is a general disinterest instead of a strong feeling. I tried many times with Iron Maiden, but it always sounded like blues rock. Strangely enough I have come to enjoy Bruce’s solo albums though.So, for me, I can't stand Anthrax or Iron Madien. Every time I hear either band, I have to change it. There's other bands I don't really like either, but those two are the main two that stand out.
This. It's because of Little Wing that I am barely able to tolerate Clapton covering Hendrix. Besides maybe Red House, he never does Hendrix enough justice.Especially that Derrick and the Dominos live at the Fillmore LP where he just mutilates Little Wing and everyone gushed over how great it was.
