    Transformed culture - let along music - during their brief hiatis from 1964 to 1970.

    Were the first to popularize longish hair in males.

    By the early 70s - everybody was wearing long hair including THE KING

    There were four of them after all. But they were all kind of skinny. If Elvis had lived longer and eaten more peanut butter and banana sandwiches, he might have got a bit bigger than the four of them. But not by much.

    The was never a possibility of a "Beatles Reunion" even before John was murdered.

    They didn't want to taint the legacy.

    Lots of offers to the Beatles for reunions during the 1970s.

    Glad they declined

    May not have gotten along - but respected thebig picture.

    Transformed the1960s

    Didnt want to ruin the legacy with some crappola reunion bs

    Elvis created very little.

    The Beatles created a body of work that is still admired by people of all ages.

    How many 19 year olds do you see listening to elvis?

    Every 19 year old I know loves the Beatles.
