1. Introduction

The Beatles were an extremely popular and influential group in Rock n' Roll. My question is, 'Why?' What drew thousands upon thousands of screaming fans to these four British musicians? Was it something in the sound of the instruments? Could it have been the bass beat, or maybe the guitar playing? What about their lyrics? They had a certain personality, too. Was that it? In this paper I tried to answer some of these questions. The Beatles were listened to when I was young and they have influenced me, being an important part of my adolescence.

 It all started in Liverpool, England, with four lads by the names of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Stuart Sutcliffe, and Pete Best. (George Harrison and Ringo Starr would eventually replace Sutcliffe and Best) The 'Beatles' started as just another teenage British rock group, but they slowly worked their way up to become one of the most influential groups in Rock history.

The first big gig for the Beatles was in Hamburg, Germany, which lasted about two years. Then, Brian Epstein, a record store manager, discovered them. At this time the members were not the ones who later became the most famous rock musicians in the world. The drummer was Pete Best, and the bass player, a friend of Johns, was named Stuart Sutcliffe. Stuart later left the band for love, and then died of a brain hemorrhage, and Ringo Starr replaced Pete Best as drummer. The group felt that they needed a new drummer because Bestís skills were not up to par with the rest of the groupís talents.

After many tryouts, and searches for a deal, the Beatles finally landed a record spot with EMI records under the watchful eye of producer George Martin, and the management of Brian Epstein. Then, they took England by storm.
        When the music of the Beatles first was released in the United States, it didnít catch on at first. In fact, they did not become popular until their second American released single came out, which was 'I Wannaí Hold Your Hand.' With this song they landed a spot on the Ed Sullivan Show, which triggered the onset of 'American Beatlemania' in 1964.

After the exposure of the Beatleís TV appearance, the groupís popularity rose enormously everywhere in the world. Once they became famous they wanted to help other young artists and performers, so they created their own record company called Apple Records. But like every band, they had many problems. After a long successful six years, things just seemed to start falling apart, and the Beatles finally broke up. This caused great heartache for their fans. John was the first Beatle to leave the band, and was followed shortly by Paul. All four of the mop-top group created their own records and sold many solo albums, but none ever recapureed their original popularity.


The Beatles had a major impact on the world, and how it is today. They brought the love of British rock and roll to the American public and after them many other British groups became famous in the United States. It is sometimes called 'The British Invasion.' at a hard time. The Beatles were famous during the time of the Vietnam War, and they used their lyrics to express their political, social, and spiritual beliefs.

This music brought an entire generation together. They changed the way people dressed, the way people looked, and the way people felt about one another. And in the end, that is what music is all about.

  The members of the Beatles continue to influence the world today. For example, the tragic death of John Lennon taught people how truly important life is, and how people think differently. The remaining three Beatles still write and perform their music, and are among the most respected artist in music. Just listen to, and you can still hear their influence today.
