    Having been involved in several debates over the years… who was better, the Beatles or Led Zeppelin, I always have to vote for the Beatles. Their creative diversity, range of acoustic methodology and presentation are not equaled by any other group in our (my) generation. It still amazes me what they created in such a relatively short period of time.
