Best Rock 'n' Roll band in the world?

Are the Beatles really the best Rock 'n' Roll band? Seriously? My answer is NO.

Don't get me wrong, I like the Beatles, they had some really good songs. I doubt I agree with many people about which Beatles songs are the best. My favorites?: Yesterday, Ticket to Ride, Don't Pass Me By, With a Little Help From My Friends, While My Guitar Gently Weeps. Well some of my favorites anyway.

Seriously though, what makes them the best? Honestly, I'm a bit tired of hearing 'because they're the Beatles'. That's not an answer.
While their songs are good and the vocals are great, they didn't play their instruments very well at the beginning. Yes, they got better, much better actually. But, in my opinion, I haven't found anything that would make them the best.

Garth Brooks

So, I went to the encore performance of Fathom Events' showing of Garth's Kansas City concert. I was reminded, once again, why Garth is my favorite country singer. His live shows are fantastic. Seriously, he is another one of those performers that, in order to experience his music at it's best, you have to see him live.

The best part....................
It official, he will be back. He will tour again, maybe not right away, but still. Of course we all kinda knew, he loves the stage too much to stay away forever, but it's still nice to hear him say it.
