John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison first played together in Liverpool in 1960, and went on to become the most successful recording group of all time. 

They became the subject of 'Beatlemania', and led the so called British Invasion in America in the mid 1960's.  They released hugely successful and influential albums including Rubber Soul, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Revolver, Abbey Road, and The Beatles before splitting up in 1970.

John Lennon was murdered in New York in 1980, and George Harrison died of cancer in 2001.  Both Paul and Ringo continue to record and perform live, and The Beatles' music continues to be bought and downloaded to this day.
