When most people hear the word the Beatles, they automatically think of the bug, but what about the best boy band the Beatles? The Beatles is composed of four men: Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Star, and George Harrison. It is said that they were best boy band of the sixties, but their influence goes beyond the sixties and still continues in today’s society. The four men weren’t just a band; they became a family. They started working together as teens, and worked together until a band member died or was replaced. Fans of the Beatles weren’t just teenage girls. They were people of all ages and gender. Without a doubt, the Beatles were the best boy band ever.
That is not to say that The Beatles were not artists. They were incredible musicians. However, what was even more incredible was how perfectly timed The Beatles’ outbreak was.

The Beatles weren’t originally the Beatles and didn’t originally consist of Ringo, John, Paul, and George. This famous British band began on July 16, 1957, on a makeshift stage at St Peter’s Church village in Woolton. John Lennon was preforming here with his band called the Quarrymen. At this time the sixteen year old Liverpudlian had met a young boy called Paul McCartney which resulted in John recruiting Paul into the band. In February of the following year, Paul introduced John to a very young boy called George Harrison. After Paul’s pleads, George began to play the song “Raunchy” for John while they were all on the top of a double decker bus in Liverpool. Because of George’s fantastic performance, he was recruited into the Quarrymen with John and Paul. The Quarrymen began their first transformation as a band at a coffee dance club called the Casbah. Here was where the Quarrymen changed their name to become the Beatles and where their reputation in Liverpool began to enlarge. The next year, in August, the now Beatles moved to Hamburg for a gig at The Indra and on February 9th of 1961 the Beatles preformed at the very popular club called The Cavern. The Beatles quickly were titled as the most exciting group in Liverpool and ended up playing over thirty gigs a month. From 1961 to 1962 the Beatles gained a loyal following of local fans. At one of their performances, the Beatles catch the attention of a man by the name of Brian Epstein. Brian was so amazed by the band that, on February 24, 1962, he had them sign to a five-year contract with him. August 18, 1962, is when the Beatles gain the one and only Ringo Starr after losing Stuart Sutcliffe to a brain hemorrhage and firing their past drummer, Pete Best. The four boys begin the l...

When historians look back at the Beatles, I think that they will say the Beatles are legends as well. I don’t think any other band could match up to what happened at the Kennedy Airport when the Beatles came to America. The Beatles were so successful that half of America dressed like them and wanted to be just like them. The Beatles had changed the way we think about celebrities.
The Beatles Influence
Culturally, I was taught that bands like the Beatles stole songs and style from African American artists of their time. 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 Beatles were an english rock band who were formed in the 1960s, based in Liverpool. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr were the members of the beatles. They became the most influential act of the rock era. To be called the most influential act of the rock era to me, it would have me crying and feeling accomplished. That I could influence people just because of something I love to do is amazing. That would be amazing and I would never stop doing what I love until I physically can not do it any more.
