no need for the formal names ;)
i never said everyone in "sloannetia" has a copy of revolver, nor should 
they be expected to, but i'd certainly be surprised if anyone on this 
list could honestly *NOT* notice the beatles-sound on any recent sloan 
...and of course as other people have noted, there's obvious ccr, stones 
and even some t-rex, from what i hear in it!
nobody is completely original, and there's always an influence.

sure, or as a keith richards guitar lick....but in saying that, you're 
*obviously* saying that there *is* an undeniable beatles influence which 
you totally deounced before!

oh...and by the way...i'd hardly call myself the ultimate beatles fan.
my copy of revolver doesn't have "and your bird can sing". i can't call 
myself a beatles fan now ;)

yeah...i turned away a *lot* of kids who wanted to buy beatle albums when 
i worked at sam's. instead, i helped them out when they were short on 
cash buying alanis morrissette cds ;)
