Firstly, I don't like to compare musicians, so you'll never hear me say "They're not like The Beatles" or well, that would be the OBVIOUS thing 'cause no one is like anybody else and it happens with bands and musicians too, is like the people that compares Oasis with The Beatles, that totally annoys me, not because I think The Beatles are better or whatever, but because I hate when people compares bands, that's something I can't stand.

And I do listen to all kind of music, sure, I rather listening to Elvis than Justin Timberlake, but not because of that Justin doesn't make good music, maybe he's good in the kind of music he does, or maybe he's just a good product of marketing, we'll never know, maybe the Beatles were another good product in the right place in the right moment, but being the fact that they were the FIRSTS, the never seen before, that's why they're gonna always be in the top of the tops, and yes, maybe there are better bands nowadays, but they weren't the firsts.... c'mon, The Beatles ARE bigger than Elvis *lol*.

What I'm trying to say, is that I don't think ol' music is better, I just say that they did it first. (If that makes sense to you as it makes sense to me xD hahaha) I can explain it in Spanish, but I think I'm not making any sense in English xD haha.

Oh and for the record, I appreciate all kind of music, in English, in Spanish, old, new, in between.... I'm addicted to MUSIC ^^

I agree with all that except for the Oasis thing. Oasis clearly go out of their way to bite off of the Beatles so I can see comparing them or at least saying that they are trying to rip off the Beatles. They are essentially the modern day version of what ELO was in the 70's and 80's.
