The Beatles

The Beatles were one of the most iconic and popular bands in the world. They were formed in 1960 and the principal members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

Before they settled on the name Beatles, they were also called the Quarrymen or the Silver Beatles.

They had some of the biggest hits in the world. Songs such as Yesterday are still very popular today.

John Lennon was killed by a deranged person near his apartment in New York.

The Museum in Liverpool is one of the best places to learn more about the Beatles. For a music fan, I would say it is a must visit.

Their studio on Abbey Road is also very popular. The zebra crossing is quite iconic seen on the album cover Abbey Road. Today you will find many tourists trying to recreate the album cover (sometimes to the annoyance of the traffic and the locals)
