Noel Gallagher Explains Why The Beatles Were More Important Than The Rolling Stones
The former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher isn’t the only one who is enamored by the legacy that the Rolling Stones and the Beatles have left for the generations to come. In a recent interview with NME, Gallagher shared his thoughts about the impact the Beatles had culturally and musically on the rock scene compared to the Rolling Stones.
The Beatles’ ‘Revolver,’ initially released in August 1966, has been re-released as a remixed and expanded deluxe box set. Noel Gallagher was quick to give his two cents about the album, as he believes it gave the band created culturally significant works years ago and is still influential today.
“Ray Davies, Mick Jagger, and Keith Richards, and all the ones that we love, we’ve all written culturally significant songs in youth culture anthems. But the thing is, if people say, so what is it about the Beatles? It’s just, like, they’ve done it more. Their songs are more culturally significant, and they did more of them, and they’re, yeah, a level above.”
Although the Beatles and the Rolling Stones have both become household names that are credited as bands that changed the course of the industry, Gallagher made a point to focus on the cultural impact that the Beatles had that set them apart from others.
The ‘Revolver’ special edition is available in three formats, Super Deluxe, Deluxe, and Standard. It has also been available on vinyl, CD, and digitally since October 28 for fans to enjoy one of the Beatles albums that have definitely shaped the rock scene.
