The Beatles were a popular music band in the 1960s. The members of the band were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Star, and the band started in Liverpool in England.

The band became very popular all over the world, and they are one of the most influential bands in the history of music.

They released 13 albums and they made a number of films.

They stopped playing together in 1970 because the stress and the fame became too much for the band. Every member then started a solo-career.
