This article is about British rock bands

The history of british rock bands really begins with the Beatles. The group’s first incarnation was in 1957, when then sixteen year old John Lennon and some schoolboy pals decided to form a band. A month later Lennon met then fifteen year old Paul McCartney and invited him to join. Several months after that, McCartney invited fourteen year old George Harrison to join, and the genesis of the Beatles was complete.

They ended up writing songs and playing gigs under several different names, including some pretty awful ones like “John and the Moondogs.” Eventually Lennon’s schoolboy friends decided to leave the band for school, and Lennon, McCartney and Harrison were left as a trio who would play gigs whenever they could find a drummer.
