The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band of the 20th century. The group’s best-known lineup was their final one, consisting of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical elements in innovative ways during the development of their recordings. In 1963 their enormous popularity first emerged as “Beatlemania”; as the group’s music grew in sophistication led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, they came to be perceived by many fans as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era’s youthful counterculture.

The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over a three-year period from 1960 onwards. They acquired the nickname “the Fab Four” as Beatlemania grew in Britain faster than anywhere else. By early 1964 they had become international stars due to the unprecedented success of their first single, “Love Me Do”, released in October 1962 in both the United Kingdom and the United States. With a sound rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, they became regarded for their ability to fuse elements of pop, rock and classical into innovative new styles leading them to be appointed Members of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II in 1965 and embrace flower power as a fashion style during 1967’s “Summer of Love”. As psychedelia began to enter British popular culture both musically – particularly with 1967’s Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – and visually – with Yellow Submarine (1968) – public awareness of LSD use among celebrities such as The Beatles further encouraged its uptake; indeed Lennon would state that Sgt Pepper was “Psychedelic music with a sitar on it”.

With their commercial success waning after 1968’s double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album”), members Harrison and McCartney experimented with Hinduism while Lennon embraced countries such as Japan; all four members used drugs such as cannabis while recording 1969’s Abbey Road which would become one of their most critically acclaimed works. After recording a final albumlet entitled Let It Be in early 1969 – originally intended as a way to reunite while attending Starr’s wedding – relations within the band had again deteriorated; during what were supposed to be “get-togethers” at Lennon’s home supervised by producer Phil Spector (who had been brought in without input from either band management or Apple Records), arguments between McCartney and him occurred which led to Spector remixing much of what had been recorded without either his or Starr’s approval or presence; this version would eventually see release on 8 May 1970 almost two months after Lennon had announced his departure from The Beatles following disagreements over business decisions with them (notably regarding manager Allen Klein) during late 1969 which culminated in his leaving for an extended holiday to America with wife Yoko Ono where he would meet avant-garde musician John Cage whose work 4’33″” – which is 4 minutes 33 seconds long consisting only of silence – significantly influenced his own future pieces such as 1970 single “Instant Karma!”

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd was an English rock band formed in London in 1965. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. Pink Floyd were one of the first British psychedelic groups to gain mainstream popularity, and are credited as one of the leaders of the genre.

The band’s classic lineup consisted of Syd Barrett (vocals, guitar), Nick Mason (drums), Roger Waters (bass, vocals), and Richard Wright (keyboards, vocals). Barrett left the band in 1968 due to mental health problems, and was replaced by David Gilmour. Waters eventually left the band in 1985, and Wright left in 2008. Pink Floyd have sold over 200 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists of all time.

The Doors

The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. They were among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly due to Morrison’s lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s sudden death in 1971 at age 27, the remaining members continued as a trio until finally disbanding in 1973. Signing with Elektra Records in 1966, The Doors released eight studio albums between 1967 and 1971. All of the band’s songs were credited to the collective collaboration of Morrison, Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore, regardless of who actually wrote the material.

In 1992, Densmore and Krieger started performing together again as The Doors of the 21st Century or D21C. Although Manzarek initially resisted joining them (opting instead to form his own group called Nite City), he eventually came on board as well. The reunited band released two albums: Other Voices (2001) and Full Circle (2002). In 2003, Manzarek and Krieger also performed with Ian Astbury of The Cult on vocals under the name The Doors of the 21st Century or D21C.

The Doors were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Rolling Stone ranked them 41st on their “100 Greatest Artists of All Time” list – a ranking that was later reconsidered by critics after Morrison’s death was taken into account. In 2002 they were ranked number 12 on VH1’s “100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock” list.

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was an American guitarist and singer who is widely considered to be one of the greatest and most influential musicians of all time. He was born in Seattle, Washington, on November 27th, 1942. Hendrix began playing guitar at the age of 15 and rose to prominence in the mid-1960s with his band, The Jimi Hendrix Experience. His innovative style of playing merged blues and rock into a unique sound that has since influenced countless other musicians. Hendrix died at the age of 27 from asphyxiation after inhaling his own vomit following a drug overdose.


Cream was a British rock band formed in 1966. The group consisted of Jack Bruce (bass, vocals), Ginger Baker (drums, percussion), and Eric Clapton (guitar, vocals). They were noted for their musical style, which fused blues rock with psychedelic rock and acid rock, and their experimental approach to composition and improvisation.

The band’s third album, Wheels of Fire (1968), is the world’s first platinum-selling double album. Cream were also the first group to be billed as a “supergroup”. They were one of the most commercially successful groups of their era, playing to packed arenas and stadiums throughout 1968. In their active career from 1966 to 1968, they sold over 15 million records worldwide.

The band’s 1974 reunion concert at the Royal Albert Hall was filmed for television and released as a live album entitled Goodbye. On 10 November 2005, they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Baker declined to attend the ceremony, while Bruce and Clapton did attend
