: : The relationship between the Beatles and the Stones seems not to be as bad as it is often told to be...

: No, it's the relations between their FANS that is bad. And it wasn't that way in the 60's.

Or in the 70s, or in the 80s, either. I never even notice a problem till a few years ago when I came on-line for the first time at the old Stonesworld board. There I found Maxlugar, Josh showed up a little later and one or two others there that were not Beatle fans. From what I can tell there are about six or seven people here who do not like the Beatles and at least two of them keep posting things like "the Beatles suck" and makes it appear that Stones fans do not dig the Beatles. But its not really true. Most Stones fans are still Beatles fans even today. Yes there are a few who aren't and almost all of them are under forty. So they were not around when the Beatles broke down the door and made it possiable for bands like the Stones to become successful. If you were around in the sixties or understood what happened back then and are a Stones fan, then you are also a fan of the Beatles.
As far as the Beatkes and the Stones go, they have always been good friends. It was the Beatles who first helped the Stones and they have been friends ever since.
