In a way I understand though. I mean, If I was his commanding officer, I wouldn't want to be the one known for the death of Elvis.

Yeah, those lowly drill sergeants get way too much flak from the media and anger from the public as it is. :wink:

Commercial Impact: Is this merely who had more commercial hits? Both Dylan and The Stones had a TON. How is this determined?


Hits and how big they were, total sales, and to some extent live success as well. Dylan never had all that many hit singles as an artist (remember, he doesn't get credit here for other artists' versions of his songs) so the Stones clearly win here.

Influence: If it's just influence within the 1960's, I'd say Dylan.


It's the influence of the recordings they made in the 1960s. Clearly Dylan.

Negative Creep wrote:
Musical Impact: Acclaim from other musicians, right? Both are huge here. Tie.


I'd give Dylan a substantial edge here, too.

Negative Creep wrote:
Cultural Impact: Dylan by far.


Yup.

The Stones in many ways hit their peak in the 70s, so overall, it's an interesting debate. But for the 60s only, Dylan is a very clear winner.

It made me sick when he got so much attention for getting drafted in the war, everyone calling him a war hero. He didn't do shit over sea's.

Dylan had twelve Top Forty singles in the USA. Not too shabby. But the Rolling Stones have more Top Forty singles in the USA than there are places on the Top Forty chart.

Brett is really one of my favorite posters here.
I love how the guy always has detailed arguments to back him up.

And no, that's not sarcasm.

:tiphat:

I hope that none of my posts in the Elvis/Beatles debate have come off as anything less than respectful. I enjoy your posts and appreciate your passion even if I sometimes find your arguments unpersuasive. I enjoy a good debate and I certainly don't take it personally.

My arguments are never unpersuasive. :razz:

Other than that, believe me I dont take anything personally here. It also helps when there are intelligent, courteous posters.

Sampson,
If you're still around, I was wondering your personal opinion on Tim Buckley, if you've ever heard him.

I would love to hear your reaction to this moody, melodic masterpiece...



Gives me chills like no other singer I've heard.
