World's best band. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Richard Starkey, aka Ringo Starr-the quartet who through their music changed the world! John founded the first line up in 1957; Ringo joined in August of 1962 and the band broke up in 1970. They had many hits; several movies (A Hard Day's Night, 1964, Help! 1965, Yellow Submarine, 1968 and Let it Be 1970). Each Beatle has had a successful solo career. John Lennon was shot to death on December 8, 1980. George Harrison died from cancer on November 29, 2001.
The Beatles rule and will continue to influence all phases of culture and all artistic expressions. The Beatles rule!Ain't NOBODY could touch them! Only a fool would think anybody could EVER top the Beatles!

A rock and roll band started in early 1960's Liverpool, England. Originally comprised of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Stu Sutcliffe (who died in Hanburg, Germany in the early 1960s), and Pete Best (who was ousted from the band); gained fame as John, Paul, George, and Ringo Starr. Appeared in America in February, 1964 on the Ed Sullivan Show as the beginning of the British Invasion. Initially managed by Brian Epstein, who died in the late 1960s. Broke up in 1970 but during their tenure as an act released some 150 songs in multiple languages and has since been considered the greatest and most influential rock band in the history of the world.
The Beatles are the greatest band in the history of mankind, and if you don't agree you are either: (1) deaf; or (2) an idiot.
