The Stones are probably the closest comparison to the Beatles in term of their popularity and lasting effect on music, as well as pop culture. However, the Beatles REALLY revolutionalized sound. The Stones were seen as public rebels, but the Beatles took things to a higher level in their music, which is what everyone remembers at the end of the day.
Nevertheless, and I guess I probably don't know enough about each individual Rolling Stone to judge their character... but they also do seem to have great personality! Especially on stage. It's amazing they've stayed together through the years, especially with the stress of being rock stars.
