A Quick Tip by EcoMama

  • Jul 14, 2010
I grew up with the Beatles because of the simple fact that they were (and probably still are) my dad's favorite band. My father had his own band, and the Beatles were his inspiration, he even looked like them! If you saw a picture of my dad when he was 20, you would mistake him for Paul McCartney! I am not a huge fan, but to say that their songs make me nostalgic is an understatement.

John. Paul. George. Ringo. No last names are necessary here. Four musicians of breathtaking originality, talent, and ambition. Born in the unlikely city of Liverpool, England, and the changers and modern musical conquerers of the civilized world.     At least that's how the story is most often told. I have to be honest here: Whenever I think of The Beatles, I think of a quote I once read about their Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. I don't remember exactly how it …

The fab four. Perhaps the biggest name in music ever. They made a lot of albums, a lot of great or at least classic songs, they are awesome.

For me they are the best!!! I still listen to them on a weekly basis. I got both my daughters to appreciate them at an early age. My 29 yr. olds favorite is Rocky Racoon off the White album.

About this band


The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960, and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. From 1962 the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the group later worked in many genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first emerged as the "Beatlemania" fad, transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.
With an early five-piece line-up of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison, Stuart Sutcliffe (bass) and Pete Best (drums), The Beatles built their reputation in Liverpool and Hamburg clubs over a three-year period from 1960. Sutcliffe left the group in 1961, and Best was replaced by Starr the following year. Moulded into a professional outfit by music store owner Brian Epstein after he offered to act as the group's manager, and with their musical potential enhanced by the hands-on creativity of producer George Martin, The Beatles achieved mainstream success in the United Kingdom in late 1962 with their first single, "Love ...
