Before One Direction or N'Sync, superstars paved the way. The Beatles are the best-selling band in history and ruled the charts in the Sixties. Beatlemania was a phenomenon that spawned many a wannabe group. Fame's allure stoked something in folks who saw throngs of fans screaming with adulation for the world's OG boy band—a job that seemed more fun than being a solo artist like Elvis Presley. The English band from Liverpool comprised four members: John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, with Lennon and McCartney doing the bulk of the prolific songwriting. You may know all this already as an avid lover of music. But here's what you might not know—which of The Beatles you have the most in common with and are most alike. Give us a chance, and We Can Work It Out! The great John Lennon is the band's most familiar member due to his untimely death, but Paul McCartney is a genius in his own right, and we also shine a spotlight on the band's less-recognized duo instead. Sail across the Fab Four, or rather, the Fab Three's universe, on a yellow submarine, and do this Beatles personality quiz like Yesterday.

Fun facts about The Beatles

  • The Birth of a Name: The Beatles were inspired by Buddy Holly and The Crickets when choosing their name. Being fans of wordplay, they tweaked the spelling from "Beetles" to
  • Ringo Starr's Drumming Prowess: Ringo Starr is an exceptional drummer. His consistency and reliability in the studio were remarkable, contributing to very few blown takes during the Beatles' recording sessions.
  • The Beatles' Original Look: The Beatles' early look was much scruffier than the smart suits they became known for during Beatlemania. They used to dress in jeans, cowboy boots, and leather jackets and even ate on stage. Their manager, Brian Epstein, convinced them to clean up their act for a better shot at stardom.
  • Bob Dylan's Influence: It was Bob Dylan who introduced the Beatles to smoking pot during their 1964 tour of the United States. This new experience led to all four Beatles regularly smoking marijuana.
  • George Harrison's American Sojourn: Before the Beatles became famous, George Harrison lived briefly in the United States. His sister was married to an American, and they resided in Herrin, Illinois. During his visit, Harrison even played the guitar on stage with some local bands.
  • The Beatles and Imelda Marcos: During their tour of the Philippines, the Beatles unintentionally insulted the first lady, Imelda Marcos, by turning down an invitation to meet her. This was not intended as a snub, but Marcos took it as such.
  • Early Attitude: The early Beatles, that performed at various clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg, had an in-your-face rock and roll attitude. They were a lot scruffier and more casual than the polished image they later adopted.
  • The Beatles and Decca Records: The Beatles were once rejected by Decca Records, with the label stating that guitar groups were on the way out. Of course, history proved them wrong.
  • The Beatles and Elvis Presley: John Lennon idolized Elvis Presley and was a significant reason why Lennon pursued a career in show business. However, when Lennon finally met Elvis, he was disappointed as he found Elvis disinterested and not particularly engaging.
  • ' Carnegie Hall Performance: The Beatles were nervous about performing at Carnegie Hall, fearing an audience of stuffy older people. They were relieved when the audience turned out to be their usual ecstatic teenagers.
  • The Beatles' Producer, George Martin: George Martin, the Beatles' producer, wasn't really a rock and roller. He had a background in classical music and played a significant role in shaping the band's pop sound.

Charlie took to the written word like a fish takes to water. That is to say; they found themselves immersed in literature from before they were born. They've been known to tell their friends how they can still remember the passages their parents read to them when they were in utero - Emily Dickinson, Jane Austen, and a bit of Hunter S. Thompson thrown in to balance it out. Charlie keeps their feet wet, whether they're whipping up pithy one-liners to tease your brain or busy working on their second novel (the first one is available on Amazon under a pen name they refuse to disclose). You’re sure to get a kick out of giggle-worthy explanations and outrageous hints, and still come away feeling like you’ve just expanded your knowledge base.

Did you know?

What were the circumstances around John Lennon's death?

John Lennon was shot five times and killed on 8 December 1980 at the age of 40. Mark David Chapman murdered Lennon outside the musician's New York City apartment building, The Dakota. Why? A former fan of The Beatles, Lennon's irreligious lyrics, such as those in the songs "Imagine" and "God" and statements claiming The Beatles were more popular than Jesus, angered Chapman. He also resented Lennon for his supposed phoniness and for espousing anti-materialism ideals while enjoying the privilege of his wealth. At one point, Chapman suggested his motive was to promote J.D. Salinger's novel, "The Catcher in the Rye" and its protagonist, Holden Caulfield. He also had other potential targets who shared little in common besides being celebrities. Be that as it may, the culture lost a rebellious spirit and a true icon of the time, Yoko Ono lost her husband, and two boys lost their dad.
