* The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?

Recent e-mail from reader Jay Tepper.

Hey Jeff,

I just turned 70 my wife is 68. We moved to Tamarac from Princeton, New Jersey 7 months ago. So far so good, we really enjoy the south Florida easy going lifestyle.

We came across your site purely by accident. We had typed in Hungarian food in Tamarac on Google and your site popped up.

We really enjoy your site. I wanted to mention that we tried your Uncle Lui’s pick and it was fabulous. We also have been to Char Hut on your say so and that was another winner.

Just wanted to tell you to keep up the great work and and while I am here, which group was better the Stones or the Beatles?

Jay Tepper:

Glad that you and your wife found Jeff Eats and that you are enjoying what it has to say.

On The Rolling Stones v. The Beatles, that’s purely a subjective call. Personally, I’m thinking The Beatles… What I am sure of-is that The Beatles are far more famous.

Proof in the pudding.

Quickly tell me the names of The Beatles on “She Loves You”…now just as quickly, tell me the names of The Rolling Stones on “Satisfaction.”

oo

See what I mean?

Thanks for reading…

    Most people only know Jagger and Richards.
    Everybody knows John, Paul, George and Ringo.

  2. SidRidesABike says...

    There were originally 5 Rolling Stones. There are now only 4 Rolling Stones. Of that 4 only 3 are original Jagger, Watts, Richards. Most people have no idea as to who The Stones have done replacements with. On the other hand, The Beatles are the Beatles, John, Paul, George and Ringo.,

  3. Jon G says...

    Your forgetting Ronnie Wood. 1st played with the band in 1975.

    • SidRidesABike says...

      Wood was not an original member.

      Original 5, Jagger, Richards, Jones, Watts, Wyman.

      • Emerald Green says...

        The Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). Jones left the band less than a month prior to his death in 1969, having already been replaced by Mick Taylor, who left in 1975.

  4. JoyceEatsBagels says...

    All 4 Beatles after the breakup had successful solo careers.
    Without Jagger the remaining Stones are worthless.

  5. Anthony Franza says...

    The Beatles are so far superior that to even question where The Stones are in comparison is an absolute joke.

  6. I love The Beatles. The Stones meh.
