Over the years, I've heard that The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Who are all rivals of each other, that each one has done something similar to the other. I personally like all 3 of these bands. IDK why they have to be "rivals".
So let me set the record straight on if they're "similar" or "different"
The Rolling Stones
-Lineup: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Brian Jones, Bill Wyman, Ian Stewart
-Recent lineup: Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood
-Formed in: London 1962
-Another one of the best known rock bands in the known world
-Trademark: energetic stage shows, R&B, jazz-style music, suggestive stage props(i.e. a giant inflatable penis on stage), their sometimes sexually explicit and vulgar song lyrics.
-Mick Jagger met Keith Richards while waiting for the train to go to school at the London SChool of Economics and Keith was attending Sidcup Art College
-Their manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, decided to make them nasty opposites to the family-approved Beatles.
-Their official logo came about in 1971, from artist John Pasche
-When the Stones played at the Super Bowl XL Halftime Show in 2006, they played the songs Start Me Up, Rough Justice and (I Can't Get No)Satisfaction. During the songs Rough Justice and Start Me Up, Mick Jagger's microphone was turned down during some of the more sexually explicit lyrics of the songs.
-Mick Jagger is considered to be one of the most successful college drop-outs
-Lineup: John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, George Harrison
-One of the best known bands in popular music history
-Formed in: 1960
-Known as the best selling band in music history
-The only suriving members are Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr
-On Feb. 9, 1964, they played on the Ed Sullivan Show, with probably half a million girls screaming bloody murder watching it. When they arrived and after they played on the Ed Sullivan Show, more British bands started coming to the Us, during a time coined the "British Invasion"
-After the Beatles broke up in the 1970s, most of them went solo, such as Paul McCartney with his band Wings.
-Lineup: Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, Pete Townshend
-Formed in: 1964
-Lost a member? Keith Moon died at 32 as a result of a drug overdose; John Entwistle died of a heart attack as a result of cocaine
-Is said, along with the Beatles and The Stones, to complete the so-called "Holy Trinity of British Rock"
-In 1968, they worked with The Rolling Stones on The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. They played such an electric show that Mick Jagger thanked them personally for playing, because the Stones were completely wiped out from touring so much
-The Who has been given the credit for creating the "rock opera". And they can also be credited for the use of the "Union Jack" for clothing; the only other instances of using the Union Jack for clothing is a cape Mick Jagger wore during the Stones 1981 North American tour had both the American and British flag on it, and Gerri Halliwell's Union Jack cocktail dress from her days as a Spice Girl
