ALL ABOUT THE BEATLES
The Beatles are a British rock music group, which revolutionized popular music around the world in the 1960s by leading a movement in rock music known as the British Invasion. From 1964 through 1969, the Beatles achieved unprecedented popularity with 30 songs reaching the Billboard magazine top-ten popular music charts.
Formed in 1959, the Beatles were composed of four musicians born in Liverpool, England: guitarist George Harrison, guitarist John Lennon, bassist Paul McCartney, and drummer Peter Best. In 1962 drummer Ringo Starr (born Richard Starkey) replaced Best. Influenced by American rock-and-roll artists of the late 1950s, such as Little Richard and Buddy Holly, the Beatles styled their songs in the sophisticated manner of Tin Pan Alley, an American tradition of popular-music song writing that peaked in the 1920s and 1930s. From the simple, fresh style of their early songs, such as “I Want to Hold Your Hand” (1963) and “A Hard Day's Night” (1964), the Beatles progressed to innovative, experimental works—culminating in the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967). Considered the first concept album (songs unified by a common theme), Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was also admired for its haunting harmony and lyrics, unconventional musical phrases and rhythms, and the integrated use of electronic music and the Indian sitar. Other Beatles' albums include With the Beatles (1963), Beatles for Sale (1964), Abbey Road (1969), and Let it Be (1970).
James Paul McCartney was born into a working-class family in Liverpool, England. Influenced by the music of his father’s jazz band as a child, the young McCartney began to play guitar in 1956. . He and Lennon performed together in several groups before forming the Beatles in 1959. The rock group would revolutionize popular music.
John Lennon was born into a working-class family in Liverpool, England. His parents separated while he was young, and he was raised by an aunt. In 1955, while in high school, he joined his first rock-music group. In 1956 he met bassist Paul McCartney. , Lennon helped to bring together rock culture and high culture by publishing two collections of poetry, prose, and drawings, A Spaniard in the Works (1964) and In His Own Write (1965). . In the mid-1960s, at the height of the Beatles’ fame.
George Harrison was the youngest of the “Fab Four” and was known as the “quiet Beatle,” and though he had wanted to be successful, he never became comfortable with fame. He met fellow Beatle Paul McCartney when the two were grammar-school students at the Liverpool Institute. Although Lennon and McCartney wrote most of the songs the Beatles performed, Harrison contributed some of their finest ones, including “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Here Comes the Sun,” and “Something”—the latter eventually recorded by some 150 other artists, second only to “Yesterday” among Beatles tunes covered.
