Help From My Friends

The Beatles, affectionately known as the “Fab Four,” were born in Liverpool, England between the years of 1940 and1943. However, it wasn't until about 20 years later that they would use their musical influence to take the world by storm, causing an entire generation to take notice, and changing the face of music forever.

Eleanor Rigby

On July 6, 1957, McCartney went to see a local band, The Quarrymen, perform at the village festival at St. Peter's Parish Church in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool. It was on that fateful day that he met front man, John Lennon.

Did You Know? The cemetery at St. Peter's Parish Church is the final resting place of Eleanor Rigby. Initially, the iconic song, “Eleanor Rigby,” was written about a Miss Daisy Hawkins but McCartney felt the song required a name fit for a spinster. He took the name “Eleanor” from the actress that worked in the film, “Help!,” and “Rigby” from the name of a shop in town. McCartney later said that he may have also been subconsciously influenced by the name on the gravestone.

Penny Lane

The song “Penny Lane” was written as part fact and part nostalgia about a bus roundabout in the Beatles’ hometown of Liverpool.

Did You Know? There is still a bank, a barber shop and a "shelter in the middle of a roundabout."

I've Got a Feeling

Before replacing Pete Best for Ringo Starr in Aug. 1962, the Beatles began to make a name for themselves in Hamburg, Germany.

Did You Know? It's been said that the Gretel & Alfons Cafe, located a few doors from the Star Club, was the Beatles' favorite late night hangout spot in Germany.

Here, There, Everywhere

The Plaza Hotel, located at 5th Avenue on Central Park South, was a popular, upscale hotel in NYC where the band would stay while in the states. Upon their arrival to the hotel, to the dismay of the hotel staff, the band was always greeted by screaming teenagers that could be heard from all over the city.

Strawberry Fields

Located on Beaconsfield Road, a short distance from Lennon’s childhood home, Strawberry Field was a Salvation Army children’s home where Lennon would attend summer garden parties and would play in the heavily-wooded grounds with his friends.

Did You Know? At the end of the record you can faintly hear Lennon saying words that sound similar to "I buried Paul." As later explained by the band, the words were actually "cranberry sauce," however, during the "Paul is Dead" hoax, fans felt that this was Lennon's way of saying he buried his friend.

A Day in the Life

Between Feb. 1961 and Aug. 1963, the Beatles brought rock ‘n' roll in England to new heights, playing nearly 300 shows at the Cavern Club, a tiny cellar club on Mathew Street in downtown Liverpool. After performing at the Cavern Club, the boys would head over to the Jacaranda Club on Slater Street for a nightcap. The club was owned by the Beatles first manager, Allan Williams.

Did You Know? The Cavern Club still operates 7 days a week, and hosts an array of live performances. It also is the final destination on London's Magical Mystery Tour.

All My Loving

Women of all ages -- pre-teens to the elderly -- were wild for the Beatles. Everyone loved them, and they loved everyone. However, in 1966, that love started to fade. The band began to receive death threats, fans were getting injured, and the crowds became so loud that their songs couldn’t be heard. On Aug. 29, 1966, the Beatles gave their final "official" live performance as a band at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.

Did You Know? The concert was captured in color by a 15-year-old boy named Barry Hood. Most of Hood’s original footage still remains unseen by the public nearly 50 years later.

Abbey Road

Between the years of 1962 and 1970, the Beatles recorded nearly all of their music at EMI Studios, located at 3 Abbey Rd in the St. John’s Wood district of northwest London. After the release of their iconic album, which features cover art of the Fab Four crossing an intersection of Abbey Road, the studio was renamed to honor the international fame and success of the Beatles.

Did You Know? Only 2 or 3 Beatles members were present at the time of recording Abbey Road. This was partially due to Lennon's auto accident and because of creative differences between Lennon and McCartney.

A Hard Day's Night

“A Hard Day's Night” was the first film starring the Beatles during the height of Beatlemania. Considered to be one of the most influential musical films of all time, the black and white comedy film portrays several days in the lives of rock ‘n' roll's original boy band. The Marylebone Train Station (pictured above) was the setting for the memorable opening scenes of the film.

Did You Know? The Beatles may be the most iconic musicians of all time, but they also earned their stripes as funny, witty and charismatic actors who starred in many films.

Ballad of John & Yoko
