“I’m always saying everything revolves around how good the song is”, Cooper said.
He continued, “You know, I don’t care how exciting you are up there. Spend your time listening to the Beatles. I tell young bands all the time: ‘I want you to listen to the Beatles, the Beach Boys and the Four Seasons. They wrote perfect songs, right? Their records were perfect”.
He feels that the Beach Boys and Beatles are the perfect bands to listen to regarding songwriting. More on this report here.
