Transcript of The Beattles
The impact the Beatles band had on the world of music and the world in general cannot be exaggerated. All who listened to their music were touched. Even adults who saw their children’s music as worthless admitted to the deep meaning and impact of the Beatles music.
The history of the Beatles starts before they were actually the Beatles. In 1957, at the age of 17, John Lennon formed his first band. The band was called the Quarry Men, as all the members had been classmates at Quarry Bank Grammar School in Liverpool England. Fifteen-year-old Paul McCartney was introduced to John Lennon in the summer of 1957 by a mutual friend and Quarry Men band member. After an audition at the Woolton Parish Church, McCartney was invited to join the band.
The Beatles were an English rock band that formed in Liverpool, in 1960. With John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the greatest and most influential act of the rock era.
"Words of Love" is a song written by Buddy Holly and recorded by him on April 8, 1957.The song was also covered by The Beatles on the album Beatles for Sale. In the United States, it was on the album Beatles VI. It was also on Beatles for Sale No. 2, a 7" extended play released in 1965 on Parlophone/EMI. The Beatles' version was recorded on October 18, 1964.
Starting in 1960, the Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over a three-year period. Manager Brian Epstein moulded them into a professional act and producer George Martin enhanced their musical potential. They gained popularity in the United Kingdom after their first hit, "Love Me Do", in late 1962. They acquired the nickname the "Fab Four" as Beatlemania grew in Britain over the following year, and by early 1964 they had become international stars, leading the "British Invasion" of the United States pop market.
