Yeah, and Pet Sounds is Paul mc Cartney´s favorite album and he also was in tears when he heard God Only Knows. So what?<quoted text>
That's right let's forget that Rubber Soul was an influence on Brian Wilson and that Brian Wilson was in tears when he heard "Strawberry Fields Forever". The Beatles were much more diverse than The Beach Boys. The Beatles were building upon many varied traditions, evoking the British Musical Hall and vaudeville, nineteenth-century parlor songs, 1960s rock, East Indian classical music, electronically produced sound collage, selective orchestration, aleatory (or chance) procedures, and musique concrète.
Zappa Art-Rock-Pop more like derivative of Varese.
The Beatles maybe are diverse on The White Album. But you know The Beach Boys discography? From Pet Sounds onwards they are pretty diverse and interesting. Wild Honey, Sunflower, Surf´s up.
Yeah, It´s well known that Zappa was influenced by Varese, Boullez, Bartok, Stockhausen and avant-garde composers like that.
But I was talking about rock music here. Art-ROCK.
The Beatles didn´t pioneer anything in rock, they took things from underground rock artists and made them popular.
