TRIVIA NOTES

One of the biggest musical acts in history, The Beatles were John Lennon (guitar), George Harrison (guitar), Paul McCartney (bass) and Ringo Starr (drums).

Lennon and McCartney began playing together in a group known as “The Quarrymen” in 1957; Harrison joined later that year.

Before they became “The Beatles”, they were also “Johnny and the Moondogs” and “The Silver Beatles.”

In those early years, Lennon and McCartney were joined at times by other bandmates including bassist Stuart Sutcliffe and drummer Pete Best. Sutcliffe left to join another group, and Best was replaced by Ringo to form the final foursome.

The early Beatles performed shows in Hamburg, Germany and Liverpool, England, playing covers of early American rock and roll plus original songs by Lennon and McCartney.

With hits like Love Me Do, She Loves You and movies A Hard Day`s Night (1964) and `Help!`(1965) Beatlemania was boosted with worldwide celebrity status.

In December of 1970, McCartney brought a lawsuit to dissolve The Beatles as a legal entity, and the group broke up.

Their hits are too numerous to mention, and their impact on pop music can’t be overstated. I miss them.
