There are two types of people in this world and there’s only one question that distinguishes them.
Beatles or Rolling Stones?
So tell me, which side are you on?
Contrary to your assumption, your answer has nothing to do with sugary pop or guitar rock. You think that’s what it’s about, but you’re wrong.
In reality, your preference between the Beatles and the Stones is a representation of how you live your life. And if there were any simpler test of your leadership style, I don’t know what it is.
Let me explain.
The Rolling Stoner
The Rolling Stones’ music is rooted in blues and rock n roll. It’s hard-driving music with catchy guitar riffs and the sexually-tinged British drawl of Sir Mick Big Mouth.
It took a few albums for the Rolling Stones to hit big yet even before stardom shone down on them, they had solidified their style. Their first album was released in the mid-1960s and they have stayed amazingly consistent for 6 decades and counting.
It is not a big stretch to go from 1965s “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” to 1981s “Start Me Up”. Slightly different guitar riff, slightly different melody, but undeniably iconic Stones, even though they were written nearly two decades apart.
You can always pick one of their songs out of a lineup, even with one ear tied behind your back
Rarely does a band excel for so long with such remarkable consistency (the only other examples that come to mind are Springsteen and U2).
