The Beatles were not that skilled as musicians.

I think I'm sort of on a different page to everyone else in this thread.
I have a truly eclectic taste in music and current favourites tend to change with moods and times.
But some remain constant;
1. The Clash.
2. John Lydon. (Combined PiL and The Sex Pistols).
3. The Who.
4. The Levellers.
5. The Doors.
Motorhead are contenders as are Oasis.
The Stone Roses haven't the volume of work to be considered.
As stated previously I love The Rolling Stones but most of the stuff since Exile on Main Street has been embarrassingly crap.
Stiff Little Fingers are a lifetime favourite of mine but I could hardly categorise as one the best 5 in the world.
Lots of other bands I could mention.....Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd et al would never get a mention.

it is still far beyond what most people are capable of composing and and further beyond what most people can play
Are you surprised?
Frank Zappa recorded for 27 years ( 1966 - 1993 )
The Beatles recoded for only 7 years ( 1962- 69 )
