Liverpool, England (1960 – 1970)

The Beatles were an iconic rock group from Liverpool, England. They are frequently cited as the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed band in modern history, with innovative music, a cultural impact that helped define the 1960s and an enormous influence on music that is still felt today. Currently, The Beatles are one of the two musical acts to sell more than 1 billion records, with only Elvis Presley having been able to achieve the same feat.

After conquering Europe, with successful tours to Germany and Sweden, the Beatles led the mid-1960s musical ‘British Invasion’ into the United States. Although their initial musical style was rooted in 1950s rock and roll and homegrown skiffle, the group explored a great variety of musical styles including Psychedelic Rock, Experimental, Ballads, Western and Indian Classical among others. Their clothes, hairstyles, and statements made them trend-setters, while their growing social awareness saw their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.

Early on, the band consisted of George Harrison, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Pete Best. The band got its first major break playing in Hamburg, Germany, at some rather seedy nightclubs, beginning in 1960. While in Germany, they also met Klaus Voormann, who would later design the cover of the group’s 1966 album Revolver. Sutcliffe remained in Germany when the others returned to England and became engaged to fellow artist Astrid Kirchherr, only to die a few years later of a brain hemorrhage.

    " Beat The Meatles 2 " -- Unfinished album found recently in The Apple Vaults recorded by The Boys circa 1962-63 or so. Lots of new / still unfinished songs akin to like-minded "Basement Tapes" by others you see around on here and elsewhere. It is to be available on I-Tones soon for downloading , etc in whatever mode you are in. Hurry up & "get 'er done" as Larry The Cable Guy would say. I heard Yoko Ono might nix it. Are you buying any of this? Nah? I'm just kidding. Y'all been punked !!! Seriously, all this arguing about a band that broke up 45 years ago. Sheesh !!! Why can't we all just get along, musically? Still, tell me this wouldn't have made a great April Fool's Day prank last month? If not, go pluck yourself on guitar. Once again, I'm kidding. ( ; Nah, I'm just kidding. I just wanted to
