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. Lastly George Harrison born in 1943 was the youngest of them all he was the lead guitarist and was also known as a film producer. All four Beatles came from Liverpool England. There living conditions were not the nicest of places like the way they live today. Brian Epstein was the one who discovered the musical geniuses. But when he found them he saw them playing at a little bar in a town know-one had ever heard of. The Beatles only in their early 20's were just playing another gig when Epstein walked in and heard the powerful voice and the rhythm of the music. Epstein felt goose-bumps as the powerful guitar shook his body. That day the Beatles became stars.

The Beatles were known to be quick on their feet were always ready to say something clever back. They almost always finished each-others sentences and were funny and charming. But one of the most famous things about the Beatles were their hair. The Beatles hair was long and shaggy, nothing like the average american haircut. People thought of it to be wild and crazy but the trend swept through the nation. The Beatles seemed to rebel against the American way. Their teeth were yellow there hair was long but had a charming and attractive attitude which know-one could withstand. Beatlemania had America in a choke-hold.

Beatles gave the world music. Elvis and the previous rockers created it, but the Beatles gave classic rock its name. 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. Although they weren't honor students but they weren't flunkers either. I think that their rough childhood inspired them in some of their songs. It was a miracle that the Beatles were even discovered. What are the odds that a music producer walks into that bar in Liverpool England? It must be very slim. Then when the Beatles had become huge in England after many attempts of releasing albums, they had to tackle the millions of American hearts. On their first quest to America they released, "My Bonnie." At first it didn't make it but on a trip to Paris they found out that "My Bonnie" was racing up the charts. It was smooth sailing for the band until 1969 which is when the Beatles broke up.

The Beatles became famous around the early 1960's when they released there first hit and the Beatles from that point on dazzled America and the world with (in my opinion) the best music ever heard. When the Beatles found out they were famous they were in Paris. Then when they returned to the US they were greeted by thousands of screaming fans. In the 60's the beatles couldn't even walk outside without the thousands of fans who camped outside their hotels just to get a look at the Beatles. All of the living members of the band are still viewed as icons all across the country. But the country was struck with grief in 1980 which was way after the Beatles broke up, John Lennon was assassinated on December 10th. After so many years of no Beatles, the world gathered together once again to mourn John Lennon's death. This was the last moment of Beatlemania.

I found this book to be very interesting. I think one of the main reason's I thought it was so good was because I myself am a musician and love the Beatles. The Boys From Liverpool was a great review of the Beatles career. I didn't know that much about the Beatles until I read this book. It gave a good description of the band. As a reader I felt like I really knew the Beatles. I would recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of the Beatles or even just music. It's a great inspirational story that has inspired many famous musicians.
