The Beatles consisted of four talented men: Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Richard Starkey. They had met at all different times and had one thing in common. They all loved music.

The story of the most legendary group in the history of popular music began in 1960, in Liverpool, England. The Beatles, were an English rock band, whose most well-known lineup, consisting of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, is considered by many as the most innovative, emulated, and successful music group of the twentieth century. John Lennon was largely responsible for the development of the band, since he, together with Paul McCartney, wrote most of the music for the Beatles. Lennon is largely responsible for the Beatles being considered the first rock performers who were truly considered groundbreaking artists in their own time, and years after the band broke up, with his lyrics, “Beatlemania”, and the controversy that he caused the band.

In response to these accusations, John Lennon wrote, “We didn’t sing our own songs in the early days – they weren’t good enough; the one thing we always did was to make it known that there were black originals, we loved the music and wanted to spread it in any way we could.”
The start of The Beatles began first with the formation of The Quarrymen, which assembled in early1957 in Liverpool with John Lennon being its founder (The Quarrymen). On July 6, 1957, Paul McCartney viewed The Quarrymen performing in a church fete for the very first time (John Lennon Meets Paul McCartney). The encounter between the two led to the beginning of The Beatles, who would create music that would change the world. Paul McCartney then introduced George Harrison, his younger but very musically talented friend into the band (Beatles Biographies). When Paul McCartney and George Harrison joined The Quarrymen the other members slowly drifted away (The Quarrymen). Stuart Sutcliffe soon came along as well, and was one of the original members of The Beatles, however he left the band before the group got its fame.
The 1960s was one of the most progressive eras for music and at the forefront of this movement was the Beatles. However, it can be argued that they may not have achieved such prominence if it weren’t for Bob Dylan. He is possibly the most influential person in the Beatles existence and although the group as a whole only had few encounters with each other, his effect on the Beatles would change their course from a teen pop group to arguably the greatest band of all time. The Beatles first heard Bob Dylan through his album The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan while they were touring France in 1964 (Beauchamp & Shepard). The album was significant right off the bat. It was the first time they were introduced to America’s leading folk musician who they took
