Keith Richards has a deeper understanding of rock and roll, though.

What about Pinball Wizard as a classic? Surely, you think it's better than Who Are You---lol. The rest are cool. I don't know about those Townshend songs, though. Face The Face is piece of Eighties keyboard dopeyness.

Yeah, I see I forgot a few songs ... but, I was giving an example
over why I picked The Who instead of The Rolling Stones ...

The Who ...

The Rolling Stones ...

I think this thread should have had a poll to see how many here
at Interference chose between these 2 bands ... and which band
was the overall WINNER !!

I agree. I'm just so fucking sick of the Stones by now. They are long past due to retire. They haven't had a decent album in 30 years. The same could be said for the Who about retiring, but the difference between these two bands in that respect is...

The Who still ROCK! The two new songs they recorded for their latest compilation album were actually pretty damn good, and their live shows are still awesome.

Pete Townshend's White City Fighting album is CLASSIC !!
IMO, Face The Face is an EXCELLENT SONG along with Give Blood ...
2 of Townshend's BEST off this album ...
and there's NO dopeyness about it !!

Yea but one of the Stones latest songs from their 40 Licks album "Don't Stop" is a classic. Also, "Stealing My Heart," also from 2002 is awesome. They still make good songs. Songs from the 90's such as: Love is Strong, Sparks will Fly, You've Got me Rocking, Sweethearts Together, Blinded by Rainbows, I go Wild, Anybody Seen My Baby, Saint of Me, Out of Control.

Although these songs are not as good as their 60's and 70's classics, they are still better then alot of the crap out there nowadays.

Yea I agree, the Stones should retire, but overall, they have many more great songs then the Who.

As far as the better live band of the 2, it's a toss up.

The Stones for their albums and The Who for their live performance. Obviously, I can't choose.

The new Stones song, "Oh No Not You Again" rocks so hard and I didn't hear the studio version yet.
