The Beatles

The Beatles The Beatles were an English soft music band that came together in Liverpool in the year 1960. They are one of the most successful bands in the history of music.


Since 1962 the band consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Staying with skiffle and the genre of 1950s rock and roll, they later worked in various genres from folk rock to psychedelic rock, often including classical and other elements in many innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first came out as the as the "Beatlemania", transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be seen as the impersonation of progressive ideals, seeing their influ ence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.

Starting with a five member band of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe (bass) and Pete Best (drums), They enhanced their reputation in Liverpool and Hamburg clubs over a three-year period from 1960. Sutcliffe departed the group in 1961, and Best was replaced by Starr the next year. They were made into a professional outfit by music store owner Brian Epstein after he gave the band an offer to act as the group's manager. With their musical talent and potential, enhanced by creativity of producer George Martin, the Beatles achieved mainstream success with their first single song, "Love Me Do". Gaining global popularity over the time of the next year, they went around extensively until 1966, and then retreated to the recording studio till they parted ways in 1970. Each one of them then found success through an independent career. Lennon was killed murdered near his residence in New York City in 1980 while Harrison died of cancer in 2001. McCartney and Starr remain active.

During their studio years, The Beatles are said to have produced what many consider some of their best material including the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), that is widely regarded as a masterpiece. Four decades after their break-up, their music continues to be widely popular.
