The Beatles, considered one of the greatest bands in history, consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Formed in Liverpool in 1960, they incorporated a wide variety of musical traditions in their work, including American rock ‘n’ roll and Indian classical music. Apart from their enduring popularity (their fans, which come from every generation, are called Beatlemaniacs) they are also the best-selling music act ever with sales estimates hovering around 600 million units.
Despite their fame, the band operated as a single unit only for a decade until 1970, though they continued to collaborate with each other from time to time. They enjoyed considerable success as individual artistes ‘Let It Be’ was the band’s final album release, but it was recorded before ‘Abbey Road’.
Only Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr survive. John Lennon died at just 40 in 1980 and George Harrison passed away in 2001.
