    • Why are you writing about Cliff Richard on this post Myra? This is about the Beatles and they were game changers in music. Just the best. Wrote their own music which has been covered by many other artists. And the top 5 on the Billboard charts! Way to go Beatles. True music legends.

  2. Saw them, front row!!! But on reflection, I loved the Stones much more than the Beatles, they were bland.

  3. The Beatles were fantastic as they did more for music, at the time, than any other group or singer.

  4. All of them they were and still are the greatest music “revolution ” we had of our generation can’t match their impact on the Australian and world stage they made at that time don’t think One Direction even come close
