The Beatles were an English rock band from Liverpool, England formed in 1960. From 1962 until their break up in 1970 the group members were: John Lennon with the rhythm guitar, Paul McCartney playing the bass guitar, George Harrison lead guitar, and Ringo Starr on the drums.

Here is a quote written by John Lennon

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”


The Beatles were a big impact on the music scene and still are to this day if you haven’t listened to their music yet today is a good day to start! Long live The Beatles peace and love everyone ❤️✌️
