After so many years of The Beatles’ rule atop the ladder of popular music, it can be difficult to conceive that they were giants standing on the shoulders of others. Their main influences were rooted in the earliest form of blues-based rock ‘n’ roll in the 1950s. The Beatles took a great deal of inspiration from American greats like Elvis Presley, Little Richard and Buddy Holly. It was these musicians that they would cover in their early shows before they had a healthy back-catalogue in the Lennon-McCartney locker.

The earliest incarnation of The Beatles was originally assembled in 1956 by John Lennon. His band was named The Blackjacks for a short while before they decided to change it to The Quarrymen, named after his school, Quarry Bank High. In 1957, Lennon met 15-year-old Paul McCartney at St Peter’s Church Hall fete in Woolton. The pair got on like a house on fire, and it wasn’t long before McCartney joined The Quarrymen, initially as a rhythm guitarist.
