I agree with the majority of your post. Two contentions though:
When it comes to best RnR group of all time I think Stones. But when it comes down to best overall musical group, I'd say probably Beatles. They just did such a variety of musical styles, with interesting lyrics, as well as being hugely influential for any artists then on.
I think Abbey Road was very near some of their best albums, although I'm sure you and a lot of people would argue it's a solo effort. It still sounds good, though, and says Beatles at the top.
