The Beatles

You might not think that music and pop figures would go together, but The Beatles are one of the most popular groups in music history. They have inspired many people to create pop figures in their likeness. Some of these figures are very realistic and even come with accessories. If you are a fan of The Beatles, then you might want to check out some of these pop figures.

John Lennon

John Lennon was an English singer, songwriter, musician and activist who co-founded the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He and fellow member Paul McCartney formed a much-celebrated songwriting partnership. Born and raised in Liverpool, Lennon became involved as a teenager in the skiffle craze; his first band, the Quarrymen, evolved into the Beatles in 1960. As the group’s frontman, he was the primary singer–songwriter and played rhythm guitar and piano. His songs for the group—including “Help!”, “Yesterday”, “A Day in the Life”—accounted for more than half of their catalog. After years of anti-establishment campaigning with songs such as “Give Peace a Chance” and “Imagine”, he incorporated explicitly political themes into works such as Some Time in New York City. Following his marriage to Yoko Ono in 1969 and inspired by the fervent activism of counterculture figures such as Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman, Lennon embraced left-wing politics. After his retrospective solo album John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band (1970), he recorded three albums with Ono: David Peel & John Lennon (1971), Some Time in New York City (1972) and Double Fantasy (1980).

Lennon’s 1970s albums were more personal; 1973’s Mind Games reflected his preoccupation with personal relationships, while 1974’s Walls and Bridges commemorated his separation from Ono. 1975 saw him delve into rockabilly with Rock ‘n’ Roll. In 1980, he released Double Fantasy to renewed commercial success; two weeks after its release he was murdered by Mark David Chapman in front of his apartment building in New York City.

Lennon exposed a generation to psychedelic drugs through both his words and actions; according to Peter Doggett, “[h]e not only wrote some of pop music’s most memorable lines about taking acid … [h]e also turned on countless young fans to marijuana.” Time magazine ranked him eighth on their 2010 list of “The All-TIME 100 Fashion Icons”. Musicians including Bob Dylan have acknowledged Lennon as an influence; Dylan told Rolling Stone that “[w]hen [the Beatles] came along … [i]t suddenly dawned on me that they had opened up a completely new way to write songs.” Tom Petty stated that “[t]he great thing about John is that he brought an earthiness back to rock & roll,” while Bob Geldof called him “[t]he only true original poet since Dylan.” In 2006, Rolling Stone placed Lennon at number 38 on their list of “The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is a former member of the Beatles who went on to have a very successful solo career. He was born in Liverpool, England, in 1942, and his first musical experience was playing the trumpet in his school orchestra. He soon switched to playing guitar and joined a band called the Quarrymen, which eventually became the Beatles.

After the Beatles broke up in 1970, McCartney pursued a solo career and released his first album, McCartney, in 1970. He has since released more than 20 solo albums and has sold more than 100 million records worldwide. He has also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, once as a member of the Beatles and once as a solo artist.

George Harrison

George Harrison was an English musician, singer-songwriter, and Producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles. Often referred to as “the quiet Beatle”, Harrison embraced Indian culture and helped broaden the scope of popular music through his incorporation of Oriental and Hindu-aligned motifs. His songs for the group—including “Taxman”, “Within You Without You”, and “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”—are acknowledged as among the finest by any band. Rolling Stone magazine ranked him number 11 in their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”. He is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee – as a member of the Beatles in 1988, and posthumously for his solo work in 2004.

Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr was born Richard Starkey on July 7, 1940, in Liverpool, England. He was the Beatles’ drummer and occasional singer, featured on such songs as “With a Little Help from My Friends” and “Yellow Submarine.” After the group disbanded in 1970, Starr pursued a successful solo career. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a Beatle in 1988.

David Bowie

Now, you can own a Pop figure inspired by the legendary musician. This figure features Bowie in his iconic Aladdin Sane outfit and is sure to be a hit with fans of all ages.
