    The Beatles were important because they were responsible for the mid 1960s musical British invasion to the USA. Initially their music was based on 1950s rock. …The Beatles were also important because they not only defined the music of the but they also had a big influence on popular culture in general.

    On Liverpool’s Waterfront, there’s a statue called ‘The Beatles Statue’ and it’s a statue of The Beatles walking. The figures are larger than life size and weigh 1.2 tonnes in total. They were made by Andrew Edwards who also created the ‘All Together Now Christmas Truce WWI statue’.The statues arrived in December 2015 and the placement of the statue coincides with the 50 year anniversary of the band’s last gig played in Liverpool, at the Liverpool Empire Theatre.

  • Aaminah says:

    Facts about The Beatles:
    Paul and Ringo were both left handed.
    None of the Beatles could read music. They could play the guitar, piano, and drums and write lyrics, but they never learned to read music.
    John received his first guitar from his Aunt Mimi who encouraged him to learn and play the guitar as a hobby. She said that it was a bad idea to pursue a career in music and that it would never earn him any money.
