The Beatles to this day are one of the most famous and popular rock ‘n roll

groups in the world. The Beatles include George Harrison, John

Lennon(1940-1980), Paul McCartney, and Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr).

All of the Beatles where born and raised in Liverpool, England. John Lennon

was considered the leader of the band. George Harrison was the lead

guitarist. John Lennon was a song writer, one of the two lead singers, and

rhythm guitarist. Paul McCartney was a song writer, one of the two lead

singers, and a bass player. Ringo Starr played the drums. John Lennon’s first

band was called the Quarrymen (named after his High School). None of the

three Beatles were in this band. Paul joined the group in 1957. George

Harrison joined the group in 1958. They played with bass player and guitarist

Sut Sutcliffe. Pete Best was their drummer. Sut Sutcliffe left in 1961 and

Ringo Starr joined the band. Pete Best was asked to leave the band on April

16, 1962. He was considered the Beatles undisputed sex symbol. The

Beatles were discovered on November 9, 1961 by Brian Epstein. He was a

manager of a record store in Liverpool and an x British Army soldier. The

Beatles first two songs were “Love Me Do” and “Please, Please Me.” The

Beatles starred in two movies, “A Hard Days Night,” and “Help.” They also

had their own full length movie called “Yellow Submarine.” This movie was

a cartoon that came out around 1965. The movie “A Hard Days Night”

earned 1.3 million dollars in its first week. The Beatles early music was

influenced by singers Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley. In November of 1963

the Beatles performed in front of the Queen of England. By the end of 1963,

the Beatles were the biggest music group in England. The Beatles came to

New York City for the first time in 1964. The Beatles were amazed when

over 10,000 people were waiting for them in America. They were an instant

success. A couple of weeks later after their New York appearance, the five

best selling records were released by the Beatles. They became world famous

by the end of 1964. Also in 1964 the song “I Want To Hold Your Hand”

marked the beginning of “BEATLEMANIA.” The Beatles were unusual

because most rock was strong beat with no melody. The Beatles added

melody to rock. The Beatles also added strong and meaningful lyrics. John

Lennon wrote a book called “In His Own Write.” The Beatles started a new

era of music. They wore their hair long and shaggy. This haircut was known

as the Beatles haircut. All across the world people started wearing their hair

like the Beatles. John Lennon described the Beatles like this “When you said

it, it was crawly things, when you read it, it was beat music.” The Beatles

made their last stage appearance together in 1966. In 1967 the Beatles put

together a master piece. The master piece was Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely

Heart Club Band. The Beatles never had a chance to perform Sergeant

Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band. Also in 1967 Brian Epstein, the manager

of the Beatles, died. Also in 1967 the Beatles directed a movie called the

Magical Mystery Tour. The movie was about themselves in which they

toured the English countryside in search of wonder, fun, and magic. In 1970

the world famous and world loved Beatles separated. Everybody was hoping

to see the Beatles come back together. That hope ended when the peace

loving John Lennon was killed outside his New York City apartment by 25

year old Mark David Chapman. Now, the remaining Beatles have released a

record containing a recollection of some of their greatest songs. The Beatles

were at once and still are an unbelievable music experience.
