Description

This is a sophisticated study that reassembles the pieces of an extraordinary mosaic: the life of a band that at an international level influenced generations of artists. No rock n roll group has ever had more influence on an entire generation than The Beatles. They single handedly changed the period known as the Sixties and their influence is still being felt today. Music, culture, lifestyles, hairstyles, clothing styles and attitudes all changed because of this remarkable band that emerged out of Liverpool England. Its not hard to understand why so many people love collecting Beatles memorabilia.When the Beatles first arrived on the musical scene in 1962, they were an instant pop sensation, the likes of which the world had never seen. Not since the days of Elvis Presley had anyone seen music have such a profound effect on so many people. Even more than 30 years after they recorded their last song together, John, Paul, George and Ringo are still as beloved as they were when they made their first appearance. And The Beatles fans still have an unquenchable thirst for everything tells Beatles: music, books, film, posters everything.A unique tribute, this publication offers a vast survey of this band, and its many facets, which caused such a sensation across the world, and brings the reader closer than ever before to them.
