The one thing that the Stones have is amazing longevity, something that Radiohead are yet to achieve. They may well do so, but until they have had a 40 year career they aren't ahead of the Stones, IMO.It's called an opinion mate. You know, people have them. IMO, Radiohead >>>>>The coconut tree Keith Richards fell out of>>>>> The Rolling Stones. And 40 hit songs or whatever in an era dominated by rock and roll is impressive, but you can't seriously compare it with what Radiohead have done in this generation. Bit like comparing Andrew Johns to Leigh Matthews.
I don't like Radiohead, but i appreciate how good they are to some people, i just think people are getting a bit carried away comparing them to the Beatles, Stones etc.
