Without The Beatles, well I wouldn't have given my ears the chance to fully experience Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, AC/DC and many other classic rock bands! The Beatles is what got me away from most of the dreadful music that's played on some of the radio stations . My favourite album is Revolver, I believe that was the peak of their careers, using new studio techniques (mainly back-masking) and a album with themes not entirely themed towards love, as with Rubber Soul, which is possibly my 3rd favourite (Sgt. Peppers is 2nd). It also was the border between their psychedelic era and their mop-top suit era (if that's what you call it).
I also agree with George Harrison's opinion on the idea that Rubber Soul and Revolver were like volume 1 and 2, with the main idea that RS has more acoustic songs 'Norwegian Wood' and 'In My Life' are possible examples. Revolver was, for the majority, electric 'She Said, She Said' could be an example for this. On a final note, without The Beatles, I wouldn't be on this forum, writing about this. So, that could be a good thing (I hope).
