The Beatles.  I really dig Pink Floyd but their early Syd stuff was weak sauce in that they sound like a punk band, loud and obnoxious before they evolved into their more cerebral approach and styles of music/expression.  The Beatles were an orbital or two above(or below depending on your atomic perspective) the Floyd.  Its like comparing minor league vs. major league, the best analogy.
Nothing wrong with loud and obnoxious, being an asshole punk has made me into the upstanding citizen I am today. That being said I'm leaning towards Beatles, but I'm gonna have to let this fester a bit.

My "touring" days are over.  I've only been to one Phish show since fall 2000.  But if I were to hop back on terr, you're damn right I'd be kickin' it in my suite post-show!

a lot of people prefer college ball over the pros.
end sports analogies/

i think the early syd stuff is is just as ground breaking as the beatles jump into psychedelia or what have you, if not more.
i just hope this doesnt dissolve into people calling each other idiots if they happen to disagree....

Not even a question in my mind, Beatles all the way.
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

Sounding like a punk band in 1967 is pretty cool in my book, but on the other hand the Syd stuff clearly grew out of what the Beatles were doing in 65-67 and Waters himself even gives the Beatles props on the opening cut of Saucerful of Secrets.

That said I think Pink Floyd's music means more to me personally, their shit really opened up my mind to psychedelic "out there" music when I was a teenager.

In conclusion, I have no idea how I'm going to vote. . .

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

its def floyd for me

i know all about the beatles, and theyre great and all that

but when i listen to their music i dont sit back and revel at all that has been because of the beatles and think about how great they were

they (and everyone else i/you like) influenced a bunch of shit too, so great

but as far as what has meant more to my own personal musical timeline, floyd is more prevalent and was more important.  even if they were influenced by the beatles.  the beatles had their influences too, ya know?
