They have Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. What more would they need to know.

Not today - of any era. When I was a teen, I had no idea who Louis Jordan was, if I can draw a comparison. Didn't care then, don't care now.

Why would a young kid care about him now? Especially after seeing him dressed like a waiter at the Grammys. And let's not forget, before their artistic statements, the Beatles were the Bieber of the day.

errr.. not quite there Aar. The one thing i will say is that a group like the beatles have had such a strong influence on so much musically and otherwise that i would think a simple recognition of existance isn't that far fetched. Even if you don't know the songs or anything, the name at least should ring a bell. Although i don't disagree entirely with what you're saying.

It also doesn't help that Paul McCartney has completely blown since the better part of forever. Man that valentine song was so crappy.

How can anyone not care about Louis Jordan? It's one thing not to know about him, but to know about him and still not care? That's like saying you don't really care about music.

It's just not my thing. It's allowed.

As far as my comment about the Beatles being the Bieber of their era, I'm of course only talking about their first couple years when their fans consisted mainly of teenaged girls screaming loudly and their music was, let's face it, for the most part shallow and bubblegum. It was directed at the people who go on and on about how kids these days have Justin Bieber, but kids in the 60's had the Beatles. Take away how the Beatles (thankfully) progressed, and it was the same malarkey. I'm sure older folks in 1964 were yim yammering about how THEY had Louis Jordan and "who the HELL are these Beatle gays???" all the whippersnappers are listening to.

The Beatles were nothing like Justin Beiber or other manufactured pop acts of today. They were a fairly simple band. 2 guitars, bass and drums. They would play a mix of music. Some pop lovey songs, rock and roll songs and some soul, r&b and country covers. They were already very successful song writers in their early days and played all the music on all of those recordings. Their fans ranged from from teenage girls to teenage boys to Bob Dylan which is pretty well documented.

Once the marketing kicked in after was signed, Bieber became a part of the machine, but dude was discovered through his videos on YouTube, so he wasn't plucked out of thin air and 'created'. The Beatles were also marketed. And he plays instruments. I don't know what that has to do in either case, but whatever.

And Bob Dylan was a fan of Jesus for a while.

Usher is a fan of the Biebs.

That cancels out Dylan

Usher no longer has a career, so who cares. That guy lasted what 8-9 years?

Well it would mean is you is or is you ain't my baby could be answered with a resounding no. Hard to see where the Beatles would be without him.

Hmmm, cool. It didn't seem to me he had much success the last 5 years or so. Don't remember much of him having hit songs during that time. As for him being around since 94, sure but he didn't really start hitting big until 97-98. Funny, i saw him as an opening act in 98 and thought he sucked. lol I like some of his music though
