How The Beatles Changed Rock Music
Rock music consists of many individual styles. Even though there is a
common spirit among all music groups, all music made by them are very different.
Rock music evolved in the 1950s and the early 1960s. At that time that Beatles
entered the world of music from Liverpool. Rock music was a large piece of the
centerpiece of a largely rebellious group of young people. Before the era of
the Beatles, Elvis Presley first took Rock ‘n\' Roll to the public. Elvis
blended the black and white music influence to create this style of Rock ‘n\'
Roll. He commanded a large group of faithful fans. Elvis was the only singer
who was able to rival the Beatles. Even so, the Beatles admired his music and
were greatly influenced by him. The Beatles were pace setters. Their ensemble
were supplemented with solo guitar, rhythm guitar, bass guitar, drums, sitar,
and violins. They took advantage of the creative possibilities afforded by the
multiple track tape recording. They made rock music into music that were
produceable in studios but were not possible to produce in live performances.
They were the "Greatest show on Earth." They were the biggest concert
draws on Earth. Their music and lyrics changed the lives of a generation and
the generation that followed. Rock ‘n\' roll was a mixture of blues and country.
Its rhythm seemed to have an amazing power over young people that couldn\'t be
understood by anyone born before 1940. John Lennon joined Paul McCartney, Pete
Best, and George Harrison to form the hottest group that was around at that time.
Their first hit music was the very well known song My Bonnie.
In 1962, Ringo Starr replaced Pete Best as the drummer and joined the
group on continuing their wonderful future. The sum of four talents had come
together and critical mass has been achieved when the Epstein published their
Their second single received much more attention from the public and
they were given an invitation to appear live on BBC. The Beatles moved quickly
to expand their national exposure in Britain with a pair of back to back
nationwide tours. By mid 1963, the Beatles had reached nationwide stardom in
England. Even the hairstyle of them became major trends at that time. They
held large concerts and performed at clubs. They became the hottest things on
the pop music scene in England.
They began as a modestly successful musician group and ended the year as
show business legends. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were named composers of
the year. They decided on a tour to United States in 1964 without knowing how
the Americans would react to the new type of music. Beatlemania hit New York on
February 7, 1964. Hundreds of people jammed at the airport. They performed
their first concert in America at CBS television\'s 53rd street studio. The
concert was broadcast live and attracted the largest one night audience in the
history of television up to that time. The Beatles were described as a British
invasion by local and nationwide newspaper at that time. Their conquest of
America was still remembered as a major turning point in the history of rock ‘n\'
roll. Thanks to the Beatles, a large amount of opportunities were opened up to
new faces on the market. Many rock bands were able to follow in the footsteps
of the Beatles.
Once the Beatles opened up the market in the United States, this led to
further "invasions" of other British rock groups such as the Kinks and the
Rolling Stones. The 1960s rock scene has begun in February of 1964 when Bob
Dylan first met the Beatles. After that day, nothing in the music world would
ever be the same.

The Deadhead PhenomenonThe Deadhead Phenomenon “If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” - Henry David Thoreau In 1967, Timothy Leary persuaded America’s youth to “tune in, turn on, and drop out.” Thousands of young adults literally heard the “far away music” and, to the dismay of their parents, marched away. America’s children grew their hair, burned their bras and draft cards and perma
