The Beatles Biography

The Beatles are considered to be the “Ultimate” rock band and have enjoyed pole position, in terms of popularity, since their emergence onto the international music scene in the early sixties.

Hailing from Liverpool, the band was first formed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, from a previous skiffle band called, The Quarrymen.

Originally called the Silver Beatles, before shortening the name to just, The Beatles, in 1960, the band played in and around Liverpool.  Alan Williams, the first manager, took an opportunity for the band to play in the German seaport of Hamburg. It was while in Hamburg that The Beatles’ strengths as a live unit were honed, whilst John Lennon and Paul McCartney improved their song writing skills. After numerous trips to Hamburg, the band was discovered by Brian Epstein, who became the manger.  In early 1962, the band signed to the small Parlophone label and were produced by George Martin.  Shortly after signing the deal, Pete Best was replaced by Ringo Starr and it was this line up which went on to conquer the world

The Beatles were soon a success in the U.K. and this success soon transferred to America followed by the  rest of the world. Seen as trendsetters and leaders of musical innovation, the band recorded many groundbreaking albums and toured regularly until 1966, when they retired from live performance. The band also made two films at the height of what was known as “Beatlemania”.   These films were ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ in 1964 and ‘Help’ in 1965. There was also the animated feature film, ‘Yellow Submarine’, in 1968, although The Beatles only appeared towards the end of the film. ‘Let It Be’ was the final film, released after the band had officially split in 1970.

The members of the band all enjoyed success as solo artists and this continued throughout the seventies with rumours of a Beatles reunion at various points during the decade. In 1980 John Lennon was assassinated in New York by a deranged fan and George Harrison succumbed to cancer in 2001. In the 21st Century however, The Beatles are still considered to be the biggest and most famous rock band of all time.
