Re: 25 June is Global Beatles Day

Yes @Cleoriff

Back in the sixties it was uncool to like the Beatles if you were a rocker....yes I was but I liked both of the bands, so different but the Beatles started off with the slicked back hair and leather jackets. And both bands found their roots in  American Blues music. The Beatles also wrote I Wanna Be Your Man for the Stones.....or maybe they just asked if they could record it?

Re: 25 June is Global Beatles Day

The Beatles wrote I Wanna Be Your Man in 1963, gave it to the Stones who released it in November 63. The Beatles then recorded it themselves on an album.

According to Wiki John Lennon was quite dismissive of it back in the day saying 'it was a throwaway...the only two versions were by Ringo and the Stones...we weren't gonna give them anything good were we? joy

You can see why he said that ...on this version by the Beatles.

Yet it was such an iconic song for the Stones...suited their style much better

Re: 25 June is Global Beatles Day

I remember it well, I have the Stones version as both singles and album and Ringo's first solo as an album track on With The Beatles (i think?)

Re: 25 June is Global Beatles Day

I was never really into the Beatles  Smiley Indifferent

 

I always liked the Kinks, and some of their music still sounds just as fresh today. Ray Davies wrote a very successful musical (Sunny Afternoon), which was based on the band’s career, and it’s actually still relevant today in revealing how young bands have always been exploited by greedy executives in the music industry. 

 

According to this article there’s talk of them getting back together, and they may even play some live shows:
