Yes on both counts, but I'm biased, so don't take my word for it. Besides, I hate both Elvis AND the Beatles. shrug

Elvis is the only MOFO that comes close to Prince's
charisma...musicianship, on the other hand,...please.

The Beatles had more HITS, but, was the music really
better? Hell NO.
Much like MJ, they struck a chord with mainstream America and rode it to its fullest.

Prince is one BAD MF...untouchable! nod
Thanks for the laughs, arguments and overall enjoyment for the last umpteen years. It's time for me to retire from Prince.org and engage in the real world...lol. Above all, I appreciated the talent Prince. You were one of a kind.

Better than Elvis? Of course!

Better than The Beatles? Of course course course!

Imagine this situation:Prince and the NPG on stage - just jammin` , Elvis comes along too on stage and what could he do?? Absolutely nothing.
The same with The Beatles.
U see what i mean... they can´t jam with the master of jamming and HEY! the mainthing:
They are NOT funky !!

I personally prefer Prince's music to either - but both Elvis and the Beatles had more of an impact on culture - and I do think they are both more important in that sense.

But as I say, to me personally, I prefer Prince's music.

You're right. The Beatles are among my top 20 most hated artists. I can't stand a single song I've ever heard of theirs. barf However, I can't deny that they've been influential, I suppose. shrug What I also hate is that it is almost expected of anyone who listens to music that they like the Beatles- it's almost a given. I expect somebody will give me hell for the blasphemy of not rating them the best. yawn

This discussion is stupid. I was a Prince fan before I became an Elvis fan, but I think they both are great artists. I don't like The Beatles, but it doesn't mean they're bad artists. Beside, They're different artists, and if you like one of them, you don't have to hate the others.

i love Elvis
the beatles have never gripped me.

it can b said tho,if it weren't 4 Elvis breaking sexual boundaries in the 50s with his music,then we may not have have the overtly sexual side of Prince.

but that's up 4 debate as 2 whether we would eventually end up where we are 2day.
