: 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.
I find the second side of Abbey Road with exception of Here Comes the Sun, almost deplorable. It, too me, is the Beatles IORR. Great first side, bad second side.
Also, I have to say that far and away the most influencial of all of these groups artists, was Dylan. Everyone wanted to be Dylan. The least influencial and least influenced I would say is Hendrix. Although he too was guilty of wanting to be Dylan, but he did Dylan his way
