Thanks to Jessica for the invite and all my friends at Nucleus Gallery!
Fifty years ago, Richard Starkey, a Liverpool drummer that we now know as Ringo Starr, joined what would become the single most influential rock band in history. John, Paul, George and Ringo, The Beatles as billions have come to know and adore, was born in August of 1962 and quickly took the world by storm. To say that no musical act has as heavily impacted modern music and popular culture as much as The Beatles would be an understatement. Their songs, which consistently preach the message of love and togetherness, have left a legacy that has long outlived the band's ten year run. Their undeniably fresh and experimental sound sparked a musical revolution: a turning point that would set the bar for every artist that would later follow. Though The Beatles have sold upwards of an estimated billion albums worldwide, secured their place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and still hold the record for the most number one singles in the United States, their genius extends far beyond said achievements as they continue to influence a new generation of fans half a century after their humble beginnings.
