Imma Let You Finish But Today's Music is The Best Of...

Posted by: Jason Tate (05/03/12)
According to Tony Blackburn, former Radio One DJ whose career started in 1967, Rihanna and other artists of today are better than The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. That musta been some good weed.
From the Qrticle"I actually think today’s artists are better than those of yesteryear", when asked if he thought the 1960s were a golden age in music, adding: “The Beatles and the Stones just stood there with guitars and sang."

Okay, I'm not the biggest Beatles fan, but this guy is a fucking moron to say that Rihanna is better than them or the Rolling Stones.

I think he meant strictly as performers, spectacle-wise.

Studio output-wise, Rihanna doesn't even stand a chance.

Before the stones reached living fossil status, they put on pretty big shows. i think he is wrong no matter how he puts it.

Not to mention the amount of pitch correction/playback that goes into these 'superstars' live shows. Nothing against it, but it's pretty obvious nobody can dance, twirl, jump, and run like that and not miss a note.
