Hee, for whatever reason your style of putting forth your point amuses me. (In a good way!)

Anyway, giggles aside, I agree with you -- to a point. I prefer to listen to Classic Rock because, yes, I honestly believe modern music hasn't come close. That isn't to say I don't like me a little They Might Be Giants (don't laugh!) or emo rock (don't laugh again!) when the mood strikes. :)

But your point about the Beatles and timing interested me. Personally, I feel that while the boys were hugely talented and deserved to be discovered in such a way, I don't think that The Beatles as we know them today would ever have existed in another time. That sort of public adoration just isn't possible anymore. Not everyone tunes into one variety show program. The exposure wouldn't be the same. They would probably be popular, but the pressure cooker of creativity that they were forced to enter into due to the constant demand for new material would never have happened. I honestly feel like they would have fizzled out pretty quick.
