    Why I never read the thing.

    Why that name???

    No Beatles - no Stones.

    They both took their name from the Muddy Waters song.

    Just listened to - not a bad tune - doesn't cause me to hit replay like "I'm Looking Through You" by the Fab 4.

    The Beatles Apple was embroiled in a lawsuit with Steve Jobs Apple for decades over the copyright of the name.

    Finaly got settled.
