Probably the most popular influential and enduring rock group of all time the Beatles almost single-handedly reshaped rock n roll from a genre of throwaway singles by faceless stars to an artistic medium with memorable images and idols The Beatles placed the emphasis on a group rather than a single individual like Frank Sinatra or Elvis They also set an example for all rock n roll bands to follow with their strong sense of self-determination going against their record company and management on many issues even refusing to tour at the height of their popularity Of course their countless hit singles have become modern-day folk songs covered by hundreds of individuals and groups and inspiring countless more and have sold more copies than those of any other The roots of the Beatles date back to Liverpool England in the late 1950s Inspired by the growing skiffle craze John Lennon bought a guitar in March 1957 and formed a skiffle group called the Quarrymen named after his high school Quarry Bank The lineup changed frequently but by October 1959 it consisted of Lennon his younger classmate Paul McCartney George Harrison and drummer Colin Hanton By March of 1960 Lennons art school classmate Stuart Sutcliffe joined the band on bass and suggested the name the Beetles a play on Buddy Hollys group the Crickets By that summer they were the Silver Beatles settling on the Beatles in August That month the Beatles left for Hamburg West Germany with their new drummer Pete Best to try to establish themselves in Europe The band became a popular local act performing at various clubs until they were expelled from the country in November because George Harrison was underage The Beatles returned to Germany in early 1961 to record as a backup band for singer Tony Sheridan these sessions were later released during the mid-60s as new Beatles material taking advantage of unsuspecting fans Meanwhile Sutcliffe had left the band
