The Beatles Beginning

findthemselvesfigureheads.jpg The Beatles were a pop rock British band from Liverpool. July 6, 1957, John Lennon, the leader of a band called the Quarry Men, was introduced to Paul McCartney, through a mutual friend, Ivan Vaughan, at Woolton Parish Church, where the Quarry Men were scheduled to perform. Impressed by McCartney's ability to play and tune a guitar, Lennon soon asked McCartney to join the Quarry Men. McCartney accepted. George

George herd about the audition. So George tried to auditioned, but, John refused to even audition his friend because he was only 14. However Lohn finally relented, and on February 6, 1958 he auditioned George Harrison. After playing Raunchy Harrison became the newest member of the group.

The Beatles Names

The group went through several names. The band tried Johnny and the Moondogs, that didn't work. The Beatals was the next one, and like the first one it didn't work. Then The Silver Beatles. Then eventually, The Beatles.

The Trip to Germany

The Beatles went to Hamburg, Germany to play. They thought they would get a lot of glory and money, but they only found bad clubs, and had to work a lot of work. They played through the night, and slept behind a movie screen in a theatre. During their stay in Germany they learned a lot about performing but that is all they gained. They never saw the money they were promised. Their stay in Germany ended abruptly when George (then 17) was deported for being under age.Toward the end of 1961, Brian Epstein, began to hear about the Beatles and their record My Bonnie, on which they performed as the backup group for another English performer Tony Sheridan. Brian checked into the record, and ordered some to sell. To Brian's surprise, the records sold as fast as he could put them on the shelves.

More Bad News

On April 10, 1962, more bad news was coming when the group heard that Stuart Sutcliffe had died in Hamburg of a brain haemorrhage. The following day, the Beatles flew to Germany and opened a seven-week engagement at Hamburg's Star Club. After many failed attempts at different recording studios, the band was able to land a recording session with Parlophone. There was only one problem, the group drummer, Pete Best had to go. Not wanting the task of firing a friend the group asked their manager Brian to perform the task. Many have called them cowards, others thought they were jealous of his good looks, in truth,he didn't have the talent required of the group.

Asking Ringo The Beatles asked Ringo Starr, drummer for Rory Storm and the Hurricanes to join the group. Unfamiliar with this new drummer, Beatles producer George Martin refused to allow Ringo to drum and a session drummer named Andy White played for the group. Andy's career with the Beatles was short lived as the group insisted on Ringo for all future recording and performances. With Ringo at their side the Beatles went on to conquer Great Britain. The craze that they caused was nothing Britain had ever experienced.
