I was thinking about the Beatles greatness when I was listening to journey (the band, steve perry sings). I was thinking about how good of a singer Steve Perry is despite the band being shit. I then thought about what makes the band shit, it's definitely not proficiency because they're all proficient on their instruments and it hit me. It's the music, the arrangement of it, the creativity. I thopught about the Beatles who are ranked 1st to me and concluded that although they're not the most proficient at their individual instruments they are the best band because of the amazing melodies, chord progression and grasp of creativity and what makes great music. Even though Queen had all of that to a degree, the Beatles just got it (or understood) all of that better than Queen. An argument can be made for Queen being the best because they are extremely proficient in their instruments and as a band and because of the level of music they made/ Hell, as far as musicians theres not another supergroup that can match Queen piece for piece in my opinion. but is quueb better musicians than the beatles? yeah, by a mile too but so are a lot of other bands.

This is a Queen forum, so it's unlikely to annoy too many people.

Because NO ONE could/can write songs like John & Paul.

Note these JOURNEY studio releases:

Journey (1975)
Look Into The Future (1976)
Next (1977)
Infinity (1978)
Evolution (1979)
Departure (1980)
Dream After Dream (1980)
Escape (1981)
Captured (1982) 1 studio song
Frontiers (1983)
Raised on Radio (1987)
Greatest Hits (1989) 2 studio songs
Trial By Fire (1996)
Arrival (2000) (US: 2001)
Red (2002)
Generations (2005)

Steve Perry sings on 9 of the 16 Journey albums. What a great vocalist. But the band sucks? That's why Steve put out one good solo album (Street Talk), one solo album with 1 good song (For The Love Of Strange Medicine), one solo album that the record company rejected and never released, and a Greatest Hits album.

Steve Perry fired Steve Smith. Yes, Vital Information Steve Smith.

Steve Perry fired Ross Valory and hired American Idol Randy Jackson to play bass. That was Steve's last tour with Journey.

And nobody is knocking his door down currently.

and the rest of the Suck Band?

NEAL SCHON played GUITAR for CARLOS SANTANA. If you play Guitar for Santana, you don't need to defend your ability to play guitar.

JONATHAN CAIN brought "Open Arms" to Journey. Once Steve recorded it with Journey, Columbia demanded "more songs like that". It made Journey a Rock Ballad machine. It wasn't just Steve.

GREG ROLIE played organ for CARLOS SANTANA. If you play Organ for Santana, you don't need to defend your ability to play Organ.

ANSLEY DUNSBAR play drums for about a dozen bands and made a whole lot of money being in Whitesnake during their heyday.

Why were the Beatles the greatest?
George Martin? Just a thought.

Nothing wrong thinking Queen were the greatest or any other band. You're entitled to your opinion.

It's impossible to answer that question. Every single person has a different view and opinion of the "Best Band". Beatles are great, in my opinion. :-P

You forgot the Velvet Underground mate.Other then that, agreed. Beatles changed mainstream music forever, Velvets changed the underground scene greatly too. A lot of artists(Little Richard etc) changed music greatly too

And don't forget that RTB produced the first three Steve Perry/Journey albums, with Mike Stone doing the Escape album. That's quite a strong Queen connection there.

Fuck the Beatles they can't hold a candle to Queen. They just was around and had the spotlight on them when times was changing. Live Queen kicks their ass.....Vocals, Freddie kicks their ass.....Guitar arrangements Brian kicks their ass....Enough Said

As Fred said in 1984, "nobody can be bigger than The Beatles".

Although I disagree: Beatles are reachable, but George Martin definitely not.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.
