Transcript of The Beatles

The Beatles The Beatles started off... Come Together It Won't be long The Word The beatles started off as a small group of friends who formed a band, their very first performances being at the Cavern Club between the lunchtime and the evening slots for performing. They made their debut performing "Some Other Guy" and "Love Me Do", However "Love Me Do" only reached number 17 in the U.K. October 17. 1962 October 13, 1963

Only a year after their debut and the Beatles are running away from fans after a show on the Sunday Night at the London Palladium in which they had an audience of fifteen million, This time they performed "From Me To You. "I'll Get You", "She Loves You", and "Twist and Shout" By the end of 1963 the Beatles had four hit singles which is incredible taking into consideration that neither John nor Paul had any real knowledge of music theory and were writing this songs with pure instinct. 1960-1963 1964 The Beatles performed 20 shows in 18 days at the Paris Olympia near the beginning of 1964. They recorded "She Loves You" and "I Want Yo Hold Your Hand" while they were there in German in a hope to increase sales, it was the only time they ever recorded in a foreign language and not only that, but it was completely unnecessary Suprisingly there weren't that many extreme fans in Paris and the group recieved somewhat of a lukewarm reception, however this was soon forgotten from recieving the news that "I Want To Hold Your Hand" had just topped the charts in America, lifting their spirits somewhat George George was the lead guitarist for the group and his mother bought him his first guitar for just over 3 pounds, whereas his father was hoping he would become an electrician. John Paul Ringo Time Warp February 9, 1964 Ed Sullivan Show This is the Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, they performed "All My Loving", "Till There Was You", and "She Loves You" and finished with their popular number one, "I want To Hold Your Hand." The Beatles performed twice live and appeared a third time for 10,000$. Paris Love Me Do The Group performed their debut concert in Washington at the Washington Coliseumon February 11. They played a twelve song set including all of their previous smash hits. "Love Me Do", reached the top of the charts in the U.S. whereas it only ever made it to number twenty in the U.K. John was one of the main singers for the Beatles and with the help of Paul wrote most of the songs. He was Born in Liverpool and was part of a band called the Quarrymen before that evolved into what we know as the Beatles. The Beatles drummer, Ringo's real name is Richard Starkey. Like John, Ringo was part of another band before he joined the Beatles, called Rory Storm and The Hurricanes. He was also lead vocals on a few of their songs such as "With A Little Help From My Friends", and "Yellow Submarine" one of the Beatles most famed songs today. He also wrote "Don't Pass Me By", and "Octopus's Garden." McCartney was the primary song writer for the Beatles alongside John and has been dubbed the most commercially successful songwriter in history.
