Crazy Facts You Didn’t Know About The Beatles
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Pete Best formed The Beatles in Liverpool, England in 1960. In 1962, Pete Best was replaced by Ringo Starr and soon afterward, the guys became the biggest band in the world, a distinction they still hold today.
What many fans of the group’s music might not realize is that not everything the guys did was as celebrated as their music. Fueled by alcohol and drugs, the bandmates had affairs with their fellow musicians’ spouses, beat their wives, and indulged in some other crazy antics that are still unacceptable even by today’s standards. The Beatles ended their collaboration in 1975 but were incredibly prolific from 1960 to 1974. 600 million album sales later, the legacy of The Beatles continues.
