In the late fifties, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Richard Starkey were just four Liverpudlian teenagers who picked up guitars (or drumsticks) and decided to play music. With no formal training and no ability to read or write music, they tried to emulate their American rock heroes. Within a few years, they would change music history (and the world) forever.
