    Iron Butterfly and the Association

    US psychedelic and pop bands from the late 60's.

    What do you think would have happened to American Rock and Roll without the Beatles?

    Beach boys would have ruled. We'd all be surfing now, cause everyone's learning how, and we're all going on safari to stay.

    And GM and Ford would be making woodies.

    So did the Beatles. It was how bands got their foot in the door of the Big Mainstream Money Machine at the time. When it comes to truly long hair and flashy clothes and that sort of stuff, "The Sixties" didn't really start until 1967 or so. Right about the time "Sgt. Pepper's" came out. Don't believe me? Take a look at any photo or footage from a Beatles concert, up to and including their last gig at Candlestick Park, SF, 1966. Check out the fans. Other than slightly longer hair, the boys all look like they came straight out the Mickey Mouse Club. And the girls all look like their hair and glasses style advice came from the women in "The Far Side." The real style explosion was still a year or two away.

    As for The Association -- yeah, a bit namby-pamby for my taste. But "Requiem for the Masses" (the flip side of the "Never My Love" 45) was okay.

    I'm not so sure. The Beatles were the ice-breakers for all of the above. Thanks to the greatness of their music and marketing genius of Brian Epstein, they were cool enough for the young and juuuuuust safe enough for the parents to put up with (and sometimes even enjoy) them, thereby opeing the floodgates for what came after. It's very hard to picture any of the above - or the Who, or Cream, or anyone else - being able to walk that line first the way the Beatles did.

    I fear we would have been cursed with more Pat Boone and Neal Sedaka.

    I don't know what would have happened, but I don't care much. Few of the bands I like drew or draw strong influence from the Beatles.

    Johnny Burnette, live fast die young baby

    Although he'd already demonstrably fizzled by the time the Beatles made it to the US. But what about those Brit blues scholars, Yardbirds/Stones et al I'm thinking they were independent of the Beatles, although they also might not have made it to the US w/o the Beatles leading the way.

    Otherwise, Bobby Darin it is I guess.

    Wait gang....you had Motown. Elvis brought R&B to a wider audience. Beach music, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons were about. Remember it was the American Influences on the Brits that changed their music. That American Influenced Music came wafting back across the pond!

    We still had Pat Boone like ballads with Bobby Goldsboro......remember "Honey"?

    Music would have changed and progressed with or without the Beatles!

    Nothing is wrong with Pat Boone, if you want background music for a nap. The fact that he sold a lot of records proves nothing in terms of quality or lasting impact. Once upon a time, Alvin and the Chipmunks sold a lot of records, too.
