There is no doubt that any act since the Beatles do not meet Beatles standards, however, there are few acts that meet the standards of the stones either. For most, comparing the Beatles to the Stones, is to compare apples with oranges, as they have different styles, the Beatles are more influenced by rock ‘n’ roll, while the stones were not only influenced by rock ‘n ‘Roll, but also by American blues.

As noted earlier, the stones and their British contemporaries were influenced by early American rock ‘n’ roll artists such as Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly the Everly Brothers and Jerry Lee Lewis and therefore have a foundation deeply rooted in the Rock ‘n’ roll.

Gradually, as the years went by, the Stones added and incorporated more classes in their blues and rock and roll as country, people, baroque pop, psychedelia, contemporary adult, reggae, dub, new wave, punk and a little disco music. It is this characteristic of the band that made them very successful in recent years, their ability to integrate these other genres into their repertoire has allowed them to build in their original foundation and therefore build a very successful career. Artists who have influenced the stones to incorporate current genres into their sound as George Jones, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, The Flying Burrito Brothers and Otis Redding. Hits and popular songs in recent years, such as “Carnival Tuesday”, “Angie”, “Wild Horses”, “Tumbling Dice”, “Miss You”, “Paint It Black”, “Sympathy For The Devil” Start Me Up “Angie” is a contemporary 70s adult ballad, “Miss You” is a disco-rock fusion, “Wild Horses” and “Honky Tonk Women” have a strong influence in the country, “Tumbling Dice” is infused with gospel And soul, “Paint It Black” is psychedelia-oriental tinted, “Sympathy for the Devil” has a rock ‘n’ tribal gathering. While “Start Me Up”, although resembling a single rocker, is actually A track on the basis of reggae.Even his greatest success, “(I Can not Get No) Satisfaction”, is an example of the construction of Stones Its foundation because it has a much harder advantage than its first songs of the cover.

The sound of the stones would help lay the foundation for a wide range of rock artists who followed them, such as Aerosmith, Guns N ‘Roses, The Doors, The Stooges, Thin Lizzy, Oasis, Blur, The Stone Roses, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the brothers Allan, Kiss, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, T. Rex, The Ramones, AC / DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, New York Dolls, Def Leppard, Foreigner, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Earle , Neil Young, Elton John, the Sex Pistols, Bon Jovi and Pearl Jam – and that’s just the first generation. To take into account the number of artists that the artists influenced by the stones influenced themselves. The only thing that is as durable as the Rolling Stones themselves, no doubt, is the legacy they have left and will continue even after leaving the group calls one day. When that day comes, it will be long after most of his British Invasion contemporaries have hung, most of them retiring in the 60s and 70s. As rock music changes and even hesitated over the years, Rolling Stones are one of the few constants as a great source of entertainment.
