Whether you're new to the game or just a casual fan, here
are some brief basics concerning the greatest band ever (in my opinion)!
* * *
What comes to mind when people hear the words "The Beatles"? Probably something along
the lines of the following...
Distinct for the early years of Beatlemania.
Hysteria, screaming, crying, fainting when within the vicinity of the Beatles or their
likeness... fan madness, in other words.
The band's country of origin.
Birthplace of the Beatles (and a really fantastic place at that!).
A bow after each song
Brought to the band by manager Brian Epstein.
Viewed as scandalously long in the sixties, it's harmless by today's standards... nevertheless,
it's one of the instant identification factors of the band.
"Beatle boots", popular then and experiencing a fashion revival now.
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
An era-defining album that's still immensely praised.
The Beatles made Abbey Road world-famous - right by the studios in which they recorded
the majority of their music, Abbey Road and Grove End Road meet as a crosswalk. It served as the cover for their final album...
and even all these years later, hordes of tourists trudge around here each day.
