If the beatles had recorded all their music with modern production techniques would your view be different.
Not at all - I really like the early Stones and Who recordings, they are recorded with the same technology and part of what I like about them are the raw passion and energy, things I personally believe are lacking in most Beatles recordings.
For me the Beatles importance lies with them being at the very forefront of a whole change in attitudes not just within the music industry but society in general.

Okay, if you watch the video through to the song, all those images will make you want to sob. I am sad to be human when I see those images, and know that all that horror has happened, continues to happen - to what end? This planet, our human race, so very violent and cruel
I did like Lennon, despite his flaws, btw.
I personally think the Quality of the rolling stones song writing did a noticeable down track in late 60s when Brian died in the swimming pool incident.
