Мы любим Битлз



A student at Quarry Bank School in Liverpool named John Lennon decided to form a group in 1957 which laid the foundation of the most famous rock band of all time. John used the name of his school to name the group. He became a fan of American rock 'n' roll music that time and performed such music in the repertoire. On July 6, 1957, the boy from the group invited Paul McCartney to see their gig. The fifteen-year-old McCartney and sixteen-year-old Lennon began a unique song writing partnership. There were some changes in the membership of the group, but finally settled "The Beatles" went to their first trip to Hamburg in August, 1960. At that time The Beatles weren't considered to be the leading group in Liverpool. By this time, they had hired Brian Epstein as their manager and he signed them up for an audition with Decca Records. Their first single "Love Me Do" was issued on October 5, 1962, and became a hit. 1963 and 1964 proved to be the most important years.
In 1963 the "Beatlemania" craze started in Britain. The group were starring in the Royal Variety Show and the highest rating TV show "Sunday Night At The London Palladium". Their biggest year was 1964 when they conquered the biggest record market in the world - America. The group gave their last public appearance on top of the Apple building on January 30, 1969. The Beatles decided to get together to make a final album "Abbey Road". It was mainly Paul who kept the group together, encouraging them in 1967 after Brian's death and trying to get them all excited about recording and performing. But they didn't perform any more. Their "studio years" began, when they rarely got together except to record. The Let It Be album was finally released on May 8, 1970 less than a month after Paul publicly announced he was no longer a member of the group. In the end, The Beatles became true legends. They wanted more than just to be The Beatles, they wanted happiness. Lennon found happiness with his true love Yoko. Paul found his one with his wife and children. George found happiness with his solo career, his wife and a son. Ringo found happiness with his solo career, acting carrer, a wife and his sons. The Beatles will always be the greatest rock 'n' roll band in history.
