Frankie Avalon

The Beatles Would Be

Huge ... In Any Era!

1/30/2013 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Would The Beatles have been just as popular had they hit the charts today? You better believe it ... so says Hollywood legend Frankie Avalon.

Our cameraman posed the question to the '60s teen idol recently ... needless to say, Frankie's answer was a resounding YES ... telling TMZ, "I think if The Beatles debuted in ANY day, they'd be humongous. It was a great act, great songs, great music."

As to whether the band could've adapted to modern audiences, Frankie continued, "Look, great is great ... and they were great. I don't care what time, what year, whatever ... they were just wonderful."

And there you go ... great.

I agree with Frankie. When a great band or great songs comes out, you enjoy it. No matter how old the song or how long the group has been around, you still enjoy the group or song, or both. Groups, like Styx, are still working. Music doesn't go out of style.

I love Frankie Avalon's "Venus" and "why". I watch reruns of Frankie and Annette movies. As a matter of fact, I love old movies. They are great!

Just saw Frankie at my grocery store recently and he posed for a picture with my young son. Frankie is beyond a sweetheart. I just love that era of music and my neighborhood in Philly keeps it alive and well.

Beatles were a good band, Rollings Stones were better, for my taste, little more rock 'n roll with edge
