The Beatles
The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool In 1960. It is the best-selling band in history with estimated sales of 800 million records worldwide and it’s also widely considered the most popular and influential band in the history of popular music. The band was integral to pop music evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 60s. The Beatles received seven Grammy awards, an Academy award and fifteen Ivor Novello Awards.  Not only that, but the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988. The members of the band are John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They started by playing in clubs of Liverpool and Hamburg in 1960 and by early 1964 the Beatles became international stars. From 1965 onwards, they produced increasingly innovative recordings, including the albums Rubber Soul (1965), Revolver (1966), Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), The Beatles (also known as the "White Album", 1968) and Abbey Road (1969). The band disbanded in 1970 due to different artistic visions, death of their manager and the resignation from touring. After that each of the four members enjoyed success as solo artists.
The success of the band lays in it’s members.
John Lennon was a peace-activist who initially played in the band called the Quarrymen, which eventually became The Beatles after Paul McCartney joined him. His music was rebellious and his political views inspired many people, some of his songs were even adopted as anthems by the anti-war movement and the larger counterculture. After the break-up of the Beatles he continued working on his own songs which led to him being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice- as the Beatles member and as an individual singer-songwriter.

Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) – an American singer, musician and actor.
Elvis Presley became one of the most influential cultural icons of a generation. He is commonly referred to as the “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” and epitomises the post-war pop generation.
Elvis was born in Tupelo, Mississippi. When he was 13, his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. Elvis was relatively shy and as a youngster was not keen on performing in public. However, he received a guitar as a present and learnt to play and sing; he gained no formal musical training, but had an innate natural talent and could easily pick up music. As a teenager, he was uninterested in school – but become absorbed in music, listening to a huge range of contemporary American music. He also started to sport a distinctive look with sideburns and styled hair. This image would later become an ‘Elvis’ trademark.
In 1953, he went to Sun recording studio – to record a song for his mother, but also with the hope he may get noticed and offered a recording deal. However, it didn’t come to anything; he was also turned down for auditions to other groups. In April 1954, he took a job as a truck driver.
In January 1956, Presley was signed by RCA Records. His first single, “Heartbreak Hotel“, was released in January and became a best-selling hit – staying at number one for seven weeks, and selling over one million copies.
However, if Presley was considered a controversial and a rebellious figure, it just made him more popular with young listeners. His catapult to stardom was helped by a rivalry between TV presenters, such as Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan. Elvis proved a star attraction on tv talk shows, and the competition between presenters helped to make Elvis a national celebrity. It also helped bring rock ‘n’ roll into the mainstream. John Lennon, of the Beatles, described the effect that Elvis had on his musical development. ronically, Elvis was never keen to meet the Beatles and when they did meet on one occasion – 27 August 1965 – it was a mutual disappointment. But, Lennon always maintained without Elvis, there would have been no Beatles.

However, from 1973, Presley began to increasingly suffer health problems – related to his obesity and drug dependency. He continued to try and maintain a hectic touring schedule, but his performances were negatively affected by his obvious health problems. In 1976, aged only 42, he died from multiple causes; fourteen different drugs were found in his bloodstream.

His early death only cemented his legendary status, and Elvis Presley has become deeply ingrained in popular culture.

Presley’s home Graceland was opened to the public in the 1980s and attracts over half a million visitors annually. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2006.

Research on Elvis Presley

Elvis Aaron Presley was born on January 8, 1935, in a town called Tupelo, Mississippi. While growing up, he had a strong bond with both of his parents, but especially with his mother. Presely began school in September 1941. The teachers regarded him as average, but after impressing a schoolteacher with him singing "Old Shep" he was encouraged to go to a competition. But sadly he placed fifth. After the concert, he was given a guitar for his birthday, and he learned the basics from his uncles and from the new pastor. As Presley said "I took the guitar, and I watched people, and I learned to play a little bit. But I would never sing in public. I was very shy about it."

A monumental moment occured in 1953-1955, as it was time when Presley recorded his first recordings.

                                                                           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 regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history.[1] Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the group were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.[2] They often incorporated classical elements, older pop forms and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways, and later experimented with several musical styles ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock. As the members continued to draw influences from a variety of cultural sources, their musical and lyrical sophistication grew, and they were seen as an embodiment of the era's sociocultural movements.
