The Beatles

Beatles Group History:

This music group is formed in England; this group becomes well known because of their new characteristic that is favored by young people and has a profound influence on the course of popular music. These groups were formed on about 1959 and start their show in Liverpool England.

The guitarists John Winston Lennon, was born October 9, 1940; Paul James Mc Cartney, born June 18, 1942; and George Harrison, born on Feb. 25, 1943; and the drummer Ringo Starr, born in Richard Starkey, July 7, 1940. They all was born and raised in Liverpool. Lennon and McCartney formed the Silver Beatles with Harrison in 1959, and Star joined them in 1962. As the Beatle, they hit the top of the British charts with their first recording, "Love Me Do" (1962) and "Please Please Me" (1963). Their early music infused by the styles of Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley with fresh, cheeky wit, "I Want to Hold Your Hand" (1964) set of mass adulation called "Beatlemania" in the United States.

Lennon and McCartney mostly who wrote of the songs of this group, their song set a precedent for other rock groups to perform their own music. The product of constant experimenting with form and instrumentation, Beatles songs dealt with subjects ranging from children's fantasies ("Yellow Submarine") to social commentary ("Eleanor Rigby") to mysticism ("Within You without You"). Because of its poetic and musical unity, unprecedented in a rock album, Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967) is generally considered their finest work; Rubber Soul (1965) and Revolver (1966) can also be considered song cycles.

The group disbanded in 1970, pursuing individual careers thereafter. On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was fatally shot outside his Manhattan apartment by Mark Chapman, a 25-years-old former mental patient.
