    John Lennon has to be the most famous musician of all time. He was in the Beatles for christ sakes! Everyone knows the Beatles and it seems that the Beatles have more fans and are the most famous musicians that come way before Michael Jackson or Elvis does. I'm 14 right now, and i seem to know that everyone i know including my friends and family that all know about John Lennon.

    C'mon. This one is easy. If you consider "famous" to mean the most people (or even percentage of people) on earth at one time knowing who someone is, what they do, and appreciating their work then this is a no brainer - Michael Jackson. The Beatles and Elvis were big, but Michael Jackson was a global phenomenon. You can go to remote country fields in China and the people there have heard of Michael Jackson. If you were listening to music in the 80's, you know what I mean. He truly "thrilled" us all.

    Lifewater commercial....as if that's somehow impressive. MJ, Elvis & Sinatra may have sold close to or even slightly more than the Beatles, but the Beatles are easily the most influential group of all time. They have been covered hundreds if not thousands of times, in every language, their songs are part of the collective unconscious, hell even their song titles are used as cultural references and as movie titles all the time. MJ may have been a great singer and dancer, but that is a far cry from being a great songwriter. Paul McCartney and John Lennon each wrote more hits on their own than MJ ever could with a legion of professional ghost writers. The only real musicians who come close to Lennon/McCartney with sheer numbers of popular tunes and staying power are the immortals- Bach, Mozart and Beethoven. Jay-Z wore a John Lennon t-shirt at the Grammys. A-list movie stars get all giddy and nervous when they meet Paul. I know MJ meant a lot to folks (including me), but please, don't get carried away. He will always be second banana to the Beatles, and he knew it. Which is why he was obsessed with owning their catalog.

    I think Michael had a lot more fans than the above!!
    It's really not fair to seperate Lennon and McCartney since they came from the same muisic genre.

    I don't think so. The Beatles are regarded as the most famous band of all time

    Have the started a whole new style of music, dance, and fashion? Are artists copying them? Who made up a dance they use in the life water commercial?
  • Pika All-Ame... 2009/07/09 13:58:56
    Pika
    Yes actually

    The Beatles started a new era of Rock 'n Roll, and just about everyone loved them and loved what they did. That's why we have musicians like Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones and Elton John

    Elton John is pretty fast paced and usually has a colorful appearance
