Artistic differences and opinions could easily break and cause a band to divide. The Beatles have four talented musicians trying to come up with their own material. The nature of their song and style is very different to the remaining Beatles. Still, as a musician one would want to share his work to the world.

Never in the history of American music were silly songs--the weird, the inane, the pointless, the down-right stupid--more in vogue and more an interregnal part of the American music scene than in the 1960s when Rock was setting the tone of the nation. In 1960, Brian Hyland’s “Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini” was a monstrous hit, as was Hollywood Argyles’ homage to the popular comic strip character, “Alley-Oop.” This was just the first of many novelty entr...

The Beatles as musicians have tried almost any genre to incorporate to popular music, they have succeeding in integrating new elementals to popular music which originated from other genres. This became a standard of Pop Music thanks to the Beatles; Pop music became a combination of all genres making it confusing to what genre it really is.

The Beatles, being a rock band by heart recorded a lesser percentage of rock songs compared the pop songs they have composed probably to attract a majority of the population. The Beatles were a Rock Band while performing at the Cavern Club; they only performed rock songs and occasionally perform mainstream music.

The Beatles are natural musicians, they are not limited to the original instruments they started with like guitars and drums. They can play other instruments as well. They can substitute for a band member if they are for a leave or temporarily not available. The guitar became a secondary instrument after the later years of the Beatles. They began using writing songs mainly for a different instrument.

By 1970, Rock was no longer in its developmental stages. It had become the dominant musical force that would come to define all forms of popular American music--from Contemporary (Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck) to Country & Western (Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings), Blues (Leppelin and Black Sabbath) to Pop (Partridge Family and Carley Simon.) And from its Black roots sprouted Southern Rock, Soft rock, Acid Rock, Country Rock, Funk Rock, Christian Rock, and a dozen other genres over the ...

While it’s often thought by many that without Bob Dylan, Joan Baez may have never found her way to public prominence and fame, in reality, it may well have been just the opposite.

Behind the scenes, the two had already became romantically involved and Joan had...
