2 How did the Beatles change music?
How did The Beatles change music? The Beatles developed a new style of music that was a mix of rock and roll and pop with a smidgen of historic rhythm 'n' blues. In many ways, The Beatles success in America, which happened almost overnight, could be said to have brought Britain and the US closer in terms of pop culture and collective values. Before The Beatles, no British group had been successful in America.

6 How did the beatles got together
In 1957, John Lennon formed a group called "The Quarrymen". Soon after, Paul McCartney, joined. Afterwards, George Harrison, who rode on the bus to the Liverpool Institute with Paul McCartney was invited to watch the band play. Harrison would later on become The Quarrymen's lead guitar player. Eventually, after several lineup changes, The Quarrymen would mold into "The Beatles". When The Beatles were initially signed to EMI, George Martin suggested that they used a session drummer for recordings as he was unhappy with the timing of Pete Best. The remaining Beatles had some misgivings about Best and prompted by Martin's musical reservations, asked their manager to sack Best and they recruited Ringo (whom they'd known from Hamburg) to replace him.

7 Background of the Beatles
British rock group that came to personify the counterculture of the 1960s. Its principal members, all born in Liverpool, Eng., were Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. The group began with the pairing of McCartney and Lennon in 1956; Harrison joined in 1957, and Stu Sutcliffe and Pete Best later. In 1960 they adopted the name the Beatles. In 1962 they signed a recording contract and replaced Best with Starr (Sutcliffe had left the group in 1961). The release in 1962 – 63 of such songs as "Please Please Me" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand" made them England's most popular rock group, and in 1964 "Beatlemania" struck the U.S. Originally inspired by Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, and Buddy Holly, among others, their direct, energetic songs kept them at the top of the pop charts.
