Appearance of rock’n’roll In the post-war years in Britain, many teenagers of the 1950s were influenced by events taking place across the Atlantic, in America. Film stars and fashions were copied and the youngsters wanted something different from their parents, they sought out their own kinds of music and style – they discovered rock’n’roll! In 1955, the emergence of a young truck driver named Elvis Presely had its effect here in England with release of his record “Heartbreak hotel”. All four Beatles were born during the 1940s and grew up in the seaport of Liverpool, the British city on the banks of the River Mersey.
How “The Beatles” became top band “NEMS” was one of the busiest record shops in the centre of Liverpool, and was owned by Brian Epstein. A very successful businessman, Brian always liked to please his customers and, because of numerous requests about “The Beatles”, decided to find out for himself more about the band. Brian visited the Cavern one lunch-time when the Beatles were playing. Although he was only 27 years old he felt very out of place in his smart suit, shirt and tie. However, he was struck by the charisma and music of the “Beatles” and asked them to visit him in his office. Brian told the group he would like to become their manager, but he did point out that some things would have to change, especially their scruffy image. They have changed their image, but saved the style of music.
Beatlemania “The Beatles” began playing together in 1959 appearing in German and English clubs until a string of hits in 1962/63 made them Britain’s top new band. The music scene of the early 1960s was very different from the present day. With the music charts being dominated on both sides of Atlantic mainly by American artists, it was quite unusual for a British star to enter the charts. But things were soon to change, word was spreading about four young men from Liverpool, who were taking England by storm. What followed is usually called “Beatlemania”. The group couldn’t appear in public without police protection. They had conquered the world but not seen it, prisoners in their own hotel rooms wherever they visited. One of their records had been promoted in the USA and the American DJs had been plugging this “New British sound”, so when the Beatles arrived at Kennedy Airport USA for the first time in February 1964 the welcome was beyond their wildest dreams; 5,000 screaming fans were heard above the screeching of jet engines. They appeared on the Ed Sullivan show in front of 75,000,000 people, coast to coast. One of the songs they sang was “I want to Hold Your Hand”; this was their first American No.1 hit.
Beatlemania John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star became more than just pop stars – they became the voice of a new generation. Managed by Brian Epstein and produced by George Martin, they had hit after hit on both sides of the Atlantic, albums such as “Please Please Me”, “With The Beatles”, “Revolver”, “Let it Be”, “Abbey Road”. They made interesting ahd original clips, too – for example: “Help!”, “Yellow Submarine” and “A Hard Day’s Night”. In April 1968 they formed “The Apple Corporation”. They opened new offices in Savile Row the following June. Apple was going to have many divisions – films, music, electronics and even the clothes boutique. It was the dream of “The Beatles” to give others opportunities they themselves had been denied when starting in business in the very beginning. By 1970 though, mixture of drugs, arguments and money problems brought the band’s career – and the “swinging sixties” – to an end.
Why I decided to do this project Beatles’s career finished more than 30 years ago. But many people are still impressed and influenced by their music and life. For example, in 2003 Paul McCartney arrived in our country and gave a concert in Red Square which was visited by many fans. For me “The Beatles” are forever! To my mind they unite the people of different generations and different ages, because their music is wonderful, kind and exciting.
Yesterday Yesterday, All my troubles seemed so far away, Now it tooks as though they’re here to stay, Oh, I believe in yesterday. Suddenly, I’m not half the man I used to be, There’s shadow hanging over me, Oh, yesterday came suddenly. Why she had to go I don’t know, she wouldn’t say, I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday. Yesterday, Love was such an easy game to play, Now I need a place to hide away, Oh, I believe in yesterday.
