The Boys From Liverpool

In an old rusty bar in the streets of Liverpool, the Beatles were born. Four young men fueled the audience’s piercing screams and drove thousands into a state of Beatlemania. The Beatles music sensation swept the nation. Their different techniques were a refreshing twist from the old-school music of Elvis Presley and the Beach Boys. The lead singer Paul McCartney was born in 1942 and was the heart and soul of the Beatles. John Lennon, born in 1940 was a music master mind. Richard Starkey or known as Ringo Starr was born in 1940 and was the drummer of the band.

With numerous #1 hits such as, "Come Together" or "Help!" the boys from Liverpool gave a whole new feel to music. The Beatles are responsible for todays bad haircuts, bad personal hygiene and Rap, Rock, and Classic Rock. The Beatles themselves who were inspired by famous rockers had inspired other musicians who are some of the most famous people in the world. America's culture was switched in to backward mode thanks to the Beatles.

The boys from Liverpool had to overcome themselves. By coming out of bad neighborhoods and run down families the Beatles were still able to perform in modern day society.
