Grant and I are sitting in the Cohn Zohn — at the dining room table of our media empire in the East Bay — and we’re waiting on NFL free agency, less than an hour away. While we wait we are listening to the Beach Boys Greatest Hits II. We both agree that the Beach Boys are better than the Beatles. The Beatles vs. The Stones? No contest. The Stones by a mile. I don’t feel the Beatles have aged well.

Be Sociable, Share!

    I feel really bad for anyone who thinks the “beach boys always sounded the same”- anyone who thinks that is NOT a real music zealot and is beyond ignorant about what great music is and what makes it. The beatles started out with one solid album (meet the beatles), then 2 soundtrack albums (hard days night & help) and then another solid album (rubber soul); after one more solid album (revolver) they were no longer a band, they were a studio outfit that made 3 more albums (sgt pepper, white album and abbey rd) which were great for what they were but at that time the landscape of rockNroll was repaved into a drug-induced excessive mess to say the least. The beach boys made solid albums from the beginning or at least with surfin usa and every album got better with pet sounds being their apex, after that they made several other phenomenal albums (wild honey, sunflower and holland being the best post-pet sounds in my opinion). So “joshb” if I were you I’d take a better listen to the beach boys output and make a new judgement call.

    The Beach Boys rule! The vocals are so much greater than the Beatles.
