“And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make…”
— Lennon-McCartney (1969)
Music lovers worldwide come together to celebrate Global Beatles Day on June 25. The occasion pays tribute to the Beatles and the impact they had on both music history and pop culture. Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison first recorded together as a foursome in 1962 — after producer George Martin fired original drummer Pete Best. The band’s work throughout the decade remains unparalleled in pop music.
