There truly has never been a band like The Beatles in Liverpool. Try out as you may to search for someone else, there just has not been a band which has revolutionised music in the same manner as the Fab Four. Oasis, the Verve, ELO, the Bee Gees, Nirvana, Coldplay, the Jam, Happy Mondays, Arctic Monkeys and also the Stone Roses almost all owe the career of theirs to that band. Therefore, it appears to be appropriate to write a note to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the morning Ringo Starr joined the band.

Even though John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison was performing together in various capacities after 1957, it is often acknowledged the very first physical Beatles line up was established in 1960. Comprising some of those 3 participants along with Stuart Sutcliffe on bass as well as Pete Best on drums. Sutcliffe left the band just before the passing of his in 1961. From then on the band performed as a 4 piece, while McCartney got on the role of bassist. Becoming very popular in Liverpool (their hometown), greatness was only a grasp away.
