A rock band is a group composed of several members who perform pop, rock music, and other related musical genres. The band can be composed of three or more members. The Black Keys, Steely Dan, and others had been famously known to be composed of two members only. However, having a two-member band is quite rare as there are musical elements to produce the pop or rock sounds. The popular ensemble is a four-member band as this is the best ensemble to bring out pop and rock music.
There may be a hundred or thousands of bands all over the world, but there is this one band that started it all. The Beatles are the main reason for many people to love rock music even more.
The Best Rock Band of All Time
The Beatles is hailed as the best rock band of all time. Formed in 1960 in Liverpool, United Kingdom, it was composed originally with Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Stuart Sutcliffe. When Sutcliffe died, Pete Best also joined the group but, it was only for a brief time until finally, Gringo Starr was invited to become the group’s official drummer in 1962.
In the same year, the group had acquired their first hit with their song “Love Me Do.” The same as what their manager Brian Epstein had described their music, The Beatles’ honest, fresh and star quality presence had paved the way for them to be known and gained worldwide popularity. With their popularity, they had even spread the “Beatlemania” fever.
Their most popular album of all time is their self-titled album “The Beatles” that had earned record-breaking US album sales of 178 million dollars. Their separation after their final album release “Let It Be” in the 1970s may have left the world with the sadness. Although after the separation, some of the members had started their solo career, some things would never be the same, but the rock band legacy still lives on.
