The famous four who recorded that song were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, who became the most successful pop group the world has ever known. The Beatles began a series of lunchtime concerts at Liverpools Cavern Club. They were a great success. The road outside the club was always crowded with girls who worked in nearby shops and offices. They came to see the Beatles during their lunchbreak. During the 1960s the Beatles were always in the news headlines; films, world tours and sometimes scandal.
