Here is my essay on the worlds four greatest musicians ever (or at least so far)! I got top grade on it so it´s really worth reading. (at least I hope it is...) I´m sort of new with this homepage thing so if you have any comments please e-mail me. (hopefully my e-mail address will be at the bottom of this page!) //Karna
I´ve decided to write about the Beatles. Why? Because I want to know what made these four men so successful and their music so celebrated. Even though I wasn´t born when they were together, when they broke up or even when John was killed, I feel a great interest in what being a Beatle really meant. It must have been such a great honour and achievement, not just anyone was. The task of being a Beatle, belongs only to John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, with the exception of Pete Best, a few session drummers and the musicians of John´s "Quarry Men" group. And to be honest no one will ever come near what these four men from Liverpool once did. They sent Rock ´n´ Roll in all new directions, and then, at the height of their creativity, they broke up, leaving everyone hoping for a reunion that would never come. But their music will live forever. Just listen all around you and you´ll hear their songs everywhere. You just won´t know that they wrote them. And all of this was done in the eight short years they were together. And you tell me who could overcelebrate them, the ´60s pop phenomena? The Beatles were then and still remain the worlds most astonishing rock ´n´ Roll band ever.
