The Beatles created seismic waves while on their world tours. No other group has wielded as much influence in music as these 4 individuals from Liverpool, England. George Harrison’s guitar and Ringo Starr’s drums could fetch millions of dollars on Amazon. John Lennon’s lyrics actually hypnotize you. And Sir Paul McCartney’s Grammys were designed to serve a purpose.
Fans went wild during the Beatles performances. Laryngitis was a common ailment at concerts since girls literally screamed at the top of their lungs. Plus security was super tight because the Beatles maintained a high profile.
Moreover, the Fab Four’s effect on entertainment is still felt. The rock stars rocked the industry- taking all its marbles. Do you know how extremely difficult it would be to duplicate their success right now?
There are more than just a few chapters dedicated to the Beatles in the book of pop culture. Paul McCartney and John Lennon have a couple chapters written exclusively for them. You see music has always been and will forever be a major component of world history. From Mozart and Beethoven to the Beatles and beyond, organized sounds intrigue us.
Jimi Hendrix loved the Beatles. He covered Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band soon after the album debuted. All the legends recognized the English band’s greatness and fandom.
The band of brothers have sold over 65 million albums. It seems every song they created was a hit. My favorite ones are Hey Jude, All You Need Is Love, Revolution, Let It Be, and Come Together. Astonishingly, we can connect through their music. Tell me your favorites.
