No John, no Beatles.
No Paul, no Beatles.
Am watching a Queen special. What a front man was Freddie. They were a brilliant band.
Stones, with another great front man, Mick Jagger. Even if they will always be known as the little brother to the Beatles. And deservedly so. They should be happy to be runners-up in that battle. A great honour.
INXS... Michael Hutchence.
The Doors... Jim Morrison.
Another reason why the Beatles were so unique. They had two front men. And a brilliant third player that provided one of Sinatra's favourites.
Difference being those two front men - equal on every level - also played instruments. In the studio and live. Never had the liberty - and thank God - to pick up a mic in their hands and sing. Never have had to see them with a headset mic, thank Christ, doing their jiggle. Always with a guitar in their hand.
Another reason why the Beatles are quite simply the greatest band - and enigma - that every graced the musical landscape.
