It is well known that the people of Britain, especially Liverpudlians, idolized American music. American music inspired Liverpudilians, even the Beatles themselves, to new genres and styles of music. Given all this, it is understandable that the “success in America would solidify the position of the Beatles as Britain’s greatest exponents of pop music” (Michael Frontani, 20). However, even with the recognized achievement of optimal success in Britain, once success in America was reached, the Beatles still had their apprehensions to ‘cross seas’ and essentially give America something they already had. Nonetheless, with or without their own apprehension, the US had their own hesitations themselves upon their acceptance of the Beatles in America

I feel that John Lennon has been most influential on the genre of music I enjoy and play, which is rock and roll. John Lennon's choppy rhythmic up strumming accented Ringo's drum patterns which provided accurate timing, giving the Beatles music a strong spiritual feel. In my opinion, the Beatles wouldn't have had a heart beat without John navigating the rhythm section on guitar. I think what made him inspirational to many is the fact that he turned his negative experiences in early life into a positive unique style and sound. Before I learned to fluently hold the major open chords properly on guitar, I remember listening closely to rhythm guitar progressions being played on FM radio while tapping my foot to rhythm for the duration of a rock song.

The Beatles Introduction The United States wouldn’t be the same after the British Invasion. The Beatles made a statement in US that young and old could relate to. They had a leading edge on the British invasion which they earned many awards, won 25 grammy’s, and even earned a place in the Rock & Roll hall of fame, making the Beatles one of the best Rock & Roll bands in the 20th century. Ringo Starr’s love for music started in the hospital. When Ringo Starr was young he became very sick with peritonitis.
When anyone says, British Invasion, the mind instantly jumps to music. And more often than not, one band in particular pops into mind. Maybe The Who, singing My Generation pops into mind. However, more often than not, it is The Beatles that come to mind. (too many come to mind?)
