Transcript of Prezi Design Tips: How to make an awesome Prezi on The Beatles
TOTAL ALBUM SALES
FORMED IN 1956 THE BEATLES BEGAN THEIR CAREERS UNDER THE NAME
SKIFFLE IS A TYPE OF POPULAR MUSIC WITH JAZZ, BLUES, FOLK AND ROOTS INFLUENCES, USUALLY USING HOMEMADE OR IMPROVISED INSTRUMENTS.
GAINED THE HIGHEST STATUS REACHING
IN THE US.
THE BEATLES (AKA. THE WHITE ALBUM)
Upon their return to the UK from Sweden on the 31 December, "several hundred screaming fans" greeted them in heavy rain at Heathrow Airport wrote Lewisohn. Around fifty to a hundred journalists and photographers as well as representatives from the BBC also joined the airport reception, the first of more than one hundred such events. In mid-November, as Beatlemania intensified, police resorted to using high-pressure water hoses to control the crowd before a concert in Plymouth.
TENSIONS WERE FURTHER AGGRAVATED BY LENNON'S ROMANTIC PREOCCUPATION WITH AVANT GUARDE ARTIST YOKO ONO, WHOM HE INSISTED ON BRINGING TO SESSIONS DESPITE THE GROUPS WELL-ESTABLISHED UNDERSTANDING THAT GIRLFRIENDS WERE NOT ALLOWED IN THE STUDIO.
THE TENSIONS BETWEEN
MCCARTNEY AND LENNON BECAME
EVEN MORE APPARENT WHEN
RECORDING ABBEY ROAD.
LENNON DEMANDED THAT A SIDE
BE GIVEN TO EACH COMPOSER SEPARATELY.
A COMPROMISE WAS REACHED
WHEN MCCARTNEY SUGGESTED INSTEAD A MEDELY
TO TAKE UP THE WHOLE SECOND SIDE.
THE OFFICIAL SPLIT OF THE BAND CAME AFTER THE RELEASE OF "LET IT BE", AN ALBUM THEY HAD PREVIOUSLY RECORDED BUT HAD NOT RELEASED. WHEN PRODUCER PHIL SPEKTOR WAS BROUGHT IN TO ARRANGE IT.
McCartney was unhappy with the producer's approach and particularly dissatisfied with the lavish orchestration on "The Long and Winding Road", which involved a fourteen-voice choir and thirty-six-piece instrumental ensemble. McCartney's demands that the alterations to the song be reverted were ignored, and he publicly announced his departure from the band on 10 April 1970
THEIR FINAL LIVE PERFORMANCE WAS ON TOP OF THE APPLE BUILDING IN SAVILLE ROW, LONDON. AN IMPROMPTU PERFORMANCE THE SONGS CONSISTED OF:
I WANT YOU (SHE'S SO HEAVY)
DON'T LET ME DOWN
I'VE GOT A FEELING
ONE AFTER 909
DIG A PONY
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN
A PRETTY GIRL IS LIKE A MELODY
AFTER THE SPLIT PAUL CONTINUED HIS MUSIC CAREER FIRST BY RELEASING HIS FIRST SOLO HIT MCCARTNEY WHICH BECAME A US NO.1 AND THEN A FOLLOW UP RAM WHICH GAINED UK NO.1 STATUS AND A US TOP FIVE.
HE THEN FORMED WINGS, A BAND WITH MEMBER FROM THE MOODY BLUES. TO DATE HE HAS RELEASED A TOTAL OF 22 ALBUMS OUTSIDE OF THE BEATLES AND IS STILL PRODUCING.
AFTER SOME INTIAL THERAPY UPON LEAVING THE BAND, JOHN PRODUCED HIS FIRST SOLO ALBUM WITH YOKO ONO.
JOHN LENNON/PLASTIC OKO BAND
THE ALBUM WAS RECEIVED WITH HIGH PRAISE AND HE WENT ON TO PRODUCE 7 MORE INCLUDING THE HIGHLY REGARDED ALBUM IMAGINE.
ON THE 8TH OF DECEMBER 1980, LENNON WAS SHOT FOUR TIMES IN THE BACK AT THE ENTRANCE TO HIS HOME IN NEW YORK. HE DIED AT 11:07 PM THAT NIGHT.
AFTER THE SPLIT OF THE BEATLES GEORGE BEGUN WORK ON HIS OWN SOLO WORK WITH THE RELEASE OF TWO INSTRUMENTAL ALBUMS AND A COMPILATION OF ALL HIS SONGS FROM WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE BEATLES.
HE ALSO TOOK UP CHARITY WORK ORGANISING
THE CONCERT FOR BANGLADESH, A STAR STUFFED PERFORMANCE TO AID THE STARVING POPULATION.
GEORGE HOWEVER IS BEST KNOWN OUTSIDE OF THE BEATLES FOR HIS WORK IN THE SUPERGROUP THE TRAVELLING WILLBURYS WITH JEFF LYNNE, ROY ORBISON, BOB DYLAN AND TOM PETTY.
GEORGE HARRISON DIED OF LUNG CANCER ON THE 29TH NOVEMBER 2001, AGED 58
RINGO HAS UNDERTAKEN MANY PROJECTS SINCE THE BREAK UP OF THE BEATLES. FROM OPENING HIS OWN RECORD COMPANY TO FORMING A NEW BAND RINGO AND HIS ALL STARR BAND.
HE HAS RELEASED 16 ALBUMS AND HAS RECORDED VARIOUS SONGS WITH OTHER ARTISTS INCLUDING FORMER BEATLES.
(AND THE SELLING OF IT)
A SKIFFLE BAND FROM LIVERPOOL.
UK & USA
WHO WROTE WHAT?
THEY CHANGED THEIR NAMES
TO THE BEATLES IN 1960 WHEN THEY
BECAME A 5 PIECE.
HOWEVER IT WASN'T UNTIL 2 YEARS LATER
THAT THE BAND CONSISTED OF THE MEMBERS
WE KNOW TODAY.
WHEN DRUMER PETE BEST LEFT THE BAND THEY BROUGHT IN RINGO STARR AS A SESSION DRUMMER. HE BECAME THE LAST MEMBER TO JOIN THE BAND.
THE END OF THE BEATLES
ALL OF THEIR ALBUMS REACHING GOLD OR PLATNUM STATUS IN EITHER THE UK, US OR CANADA AND IN SOME CASES ALL THREE.
SGT PEPPERS LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND
ONE OF THE BEST SELLING ALBUMS OF ALL TIME
AND IS WIDELY REGARDED AS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL AND FAMOUS ROCK AND ROLL ALBUMS EVER.
"Every track is an individual track; there isn't any Beatle music on it. It's John and the band, Paul and the band, George and the band."
IT WAS DURING THE RECORDING OF "THE BEATLES (WHITE ALBUM)" THAT THE BAND BEGAN TO DIVERGE, THE SONGS BECAME LESS COLLABORATIVE.
