AT FIRST Hello, my name is Meritxell Collelldevall and today I’ll talk about the famous group The Beatles. First, I’ll explain a little their history and a short biography of John Lennon. Then we’ll watch an interview and, finally, my opinion. I choose this topic because my favourite band is the Beatles and I think that they’re very interesting.
INTRODUCTION The Beatles were a British band of the 1960s, this group revolutionised the music of rock and pop. His compositions were the most important in this style. This group was composed of four young people from Liverpool: John Lennon to play guitar and vocals, Ringo Starr was playing drums and vocals, Paul McCartney who was the bassist and vocals and the George Harrison was play lead guitar.
HISTORY The Beatles were created in 1950 by Lennon, then with Paul McCartney, and a month later, George Harrison. The battery wasn’t good enough, so he was replaced by Ringo Starr. In Liverpool were many groups of rock and roll, but the Beatles were the best at that time. The songs of Beatles, were inspired by stars like Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry... But their career only just starting, Beatles started to go to play in clubs. But finally they recorded their first disc called Please Please Me . Until in 1963 the Beatles were known all over the world, and in 1964 made their first tour in United States. In 1969 they returned to the studio for what would be their last recording, Abbey Road, which for most of his fans was the best work.
