About The Beatles

The greatest and most influential act of the rock era, the Beatles were also the first British rock group to achieve worldwide prominence, launching the British Invasion. They grabbed the international mass consciousness in 1964 and never let go for the next six years, always staying ahead of the pack in terms of creativity but never losing their ability to communicate their increasingly sophisticated ideas to a mass audience. As composers, their craft and melodic inventiveness were key to the evolution of rock from its blues- and R&B-based forms into a style that was far more eclectic but equally visceral. Their supremacy as rock icons remains unchallenged to this day, decades after their breakup in 1970.
