    The Beatles

    if you were born in 60's you must know about the Beatles,  The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960 the group's best-known lineup consisted of John lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). 

    On July 6, 1957, John Lennon was the leader of a band called the Quarry Men. He was introduced to Paul McCartney through a mutual friend at Woolton Parish Church, where the Quarry Men were arranged to perform. Captivated by McCartney's ability to play and tune a guitar, Lennon asked McCartney to join the Quarry Men. McCartney accepted. After McCartney joined the group, they make an audition to complete the member of the band. On February 6, 1958 he auditioned George Harrison. John Lennon’s closest friend Stuart Sutcliffe, on bass guitar and Pete Best the drummer, also constituted the band.
    On April 10, 1962, Stuart Sutcliffe passed away in Hamburg of a brain haemorrhage. After several failed attempts at different recording studios, the Beatles were able to land a recording session with Parlophone, but Pete Best, the drummer, had to go. The Beatles asked Ringo Starr who’s by that time; he was the drummer for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes to join the group. Unaccustomed with this new drummer, Beatles producer George Martin refused to allow Ringo to drum and Andy White played for the group. Andy's career with the Beatles was short lived as the group insisted on Ringo for all recording and performances in the future. With Ringo at their side, the Beatles went on to conquer the world. Releasing album after album and motion pictures, The Beatles were certainly on top of the world. But in August 1969 Lennon announced that he wanted to split from the group, however, the break up remains quiet. It was kept hidden until April 10, 1970 when McCartney decided to formally end the group. By that time many people blamed the break up of the Beatles on Yoko Ono (John lennon’s wife) and Linda McCartney. Others felt that the Beatles had run their course, and it was just their time. Whatever was the cause of their break up, it ended an era but left behind a bequest that will never be disregarded.
