I’m going to talk about The Beatles, beacuse I love them very much. Well, The beatles was an english rock band and was recognized as the most succesful group by critics acclaimed in the music history. Since 1962 the band was formed in Liverpool in and their members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Richard Starkey ( Ringo Starr). They worked with different kinds of music, from pop to psicodelic rock.
The Beatles started when John Lennon, singer and guitarrist created a band of Skiffe in Liverpool called ‘The Qwarrimen’ with some classmates in 1957. When he was sixteen. Shortly after, Paul McCartney, who was fifteen, met Lennon in a party and joined the band as a guitarrist. And Lennon invited George Harrison too. Later Lennon’s classmates left the band. In 1960 Stuart Sutcliffe joined the band and the band’s name was changed to ‘The Beatles’ and they hire Pete Best.In 1961 Stuart Sutcliffe left the band. The 10th pf april od 1962 ‘the Beatles’ received the tragic news that Sutcliffe had died. The band did its first recording in 1962 with four tracks: ‘Besame Mucho’, ‘Love me do’, ‘P,S.I love you’ and ‘Ask me why’. The three last were written by Lennon- McCartney.
Best was replaced by Ringo Starr. However White plays the drums in ‘Love me do’ and ‘P.S.I love you’
Although ‘Let it be’ was the last album that was on sale, the song was recorded before ‘Abbey Road’. First ‘Let it be’ was called Get Back, It was an idea of McCartney. If The Beatles hadn’t had an argument Harrison wouldn’t have left the rehearsal for a week.
The recording of ‘Abbey road’ started at the end of february of 1969. Lennon wanted that his own songs and McCartney’s songs were in different parts of album.
The 20th of august was the last time that the beatles were together in a studio. Lennon left the band the 20th of september, 1969. ‘Abbey road’ was number one in the charts for about eleven weeks.
Finally, McCartney announced the split-up of the band the 10th of april of 1970, that year ‘Let it be’ was launched.
After they split two album that contained the greatest hits of the beatles called ‘Red album’ and ‘Blue album’ were launched to the market .
John Lennon was murdered the 8th of december of 1980 at eleven to eleven at night. He recieved 5 shots by Mark David Chapman.
The Beatles were inclued in Hall of fame of rock and roll in 1988. And Harrison died of cancer in 2001.
I think that ‘The Beatles’ revolutionized both english rock and music in general. The beatles’ music lasts until our tume. Maybe most of young people don’t appreciate this music, but i think they deserve a recognition. If this four boys had not appeared, music wouldn’t be the same.
Now my two favourite songs:
