BTW I will no longer take part in here. Mdoc7 , 21 October UTC. Is the name correct? Should it be "The Beatles" or plain right "Beatles"? My suspicion is Apple Records holds a trademark right over "Beatles" not "The Beatles" suggesting the former to be the correct name. As it is Rolling Stones and not The Rolling Stones - the former definitely incorrect redirects to the last one it should be the other way round imho. Hi, there's been a discussion recently on the musical artist infobox talk page about the use of logos in the infobox. The discussion is ranging from whether support for logos in the infobox can be enhanced to whether this sort of thing even qualifies under WP's Fair Use policy at all.
Since this is one of the most prominent articles using a logo in the infobox, and since it has its own well-established WikiProject, I'd like to invite interested parties to join the discussion. I'm not really happy with how The Beatles Anthology is presented in this article.
The moment the various elements "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love", the albums, the documentary series are mixed up in various sections in the article. The two singles - probably the most notable element of the project - are given least prominence. I'm going to try and fix this by moving some of the info from the Anthology documentary section within "On film" into the "history" section. I'm just giving some indictation of my intentions, so I don't end up getting reverted just for making major edits to a popular article.
I just stumbled onto this pic, and think maybe it should be slotted into the History section somewhere? Our work on Paul McCartney has lead me to think again about the History of the Beatles article, a fork which clearly hasn't worked and which has dogged this project since inception. Macca's article is 90k too long really but doesn't look bad. The KLF got Featured at over 70k. The Beatles is currently 66k but I'm sure contains some cruft which could go. The history section is 30k, and the history article is only 47k. The time had come to take action, and I've taken it. History of The Beatles now redirects here.
The last substantial edit was this revision and the article text follows. Please recycle anything pertinent into this article. We can revisit the issue of forking when we get this article closer to a new FAC; for now we have to accept that the last forking failed. This article covers The Beatles' extensive history from their earliest beginnings in the s until their breakup and beyond.
Lennon met McCartney on July 6 , at the annual St. Lennon was in a skiffle group called The Quarry Men who were performing at the event. Lennon was impressed by McCartney as he knew the words to several rock 'n' roll songs Lennon would just make his own words up , and because he taught him some guitar chords Lennon only knew the banjo chords taught to him by his mother Julia. McCartney subsequently joined the band, and brought Harrison along soon after, on February 6, The name was a tribute to Buddy Holly 's band, The Crickets , combined with beat music , a common British term for rock and roll at the time.
In another tribute, they had sometimes called themselves the Foreverly Brothers. Allan Williams served as their first manager. They were offered a gig in Hamburg , West Germany , but they had no drummer. Four days later, the group with new member Pete Best left for Hamburg. Hamburg was a wild place for the young men. They were featured at the Indra, a small club where they were playing to Germans who often did not understand English. They were uninhibited on stage, drinking alcohol, sometimes goading the crowd and acting unruly, but such was the club's atmosphere. The Beatles playing together in Hamburg had the group becoming more tight-knit, better musicians and better showmen.
When The Beatles were just about to switch to a bigger, more popular club, The Top Ten Club, Harrison was deported for being underage and they returned to Liverpool. In March , The Beatles played their first gig at Liverpool's ' Cavern Club ' before returning to the lucrative Hamburg scene with a now legal Harrison.
During their stay in Germany they were hired by Bert Kaempfert to record backing for the singer Tony Sheridan. It was The Beatles' first commercial release. In the Spring of , while still in Hamburg, Sutcliffe decided to leave the band in order to concentrate on his art studies. While Sutcliffe had had little musical impact on the group, he had influenced their appearance and sense of style.
McCartney, who had been playing guitar, replaced him on bass. The Beatles, as individuals and as a group, soaked up influences from performers enjoying popularity in the s and early s. Still later, American mainstream amplified-guitar blues had an influence on The Beatles, but probably more by way of Eric Clapton and Cream , and other British bands that had been steeped in that influence for years, by this point.
On December 10 , , Brian Epstein agreed to become the band's full-time manager, after receiving requests for the band's music two months earlier in his record store "My Bonnie by The Beatles" — Epstein couldn't find it and watching them perform at the Cavern Club on November 9, Decca, in one of the most embarrassing business decisions in music history, rejected the band, on the grounds that guitar music was "on the way out".
The Decca audition has subsequently accumulated significant legend. George Martin , who was at first unimpressed by the band's demos, liked them as people when he met them, and they were signed. Not only did he feel that they had musical talent, but he also felt that their wit and humor made them extremely "likeable.
Martin informed The Beatles that he was signing them in late July. Martin did have a problem with Best however, whom he criticised for not being able to keep time. For this and other reasons, The Beatles let Best go on August 16 , , although it was left to Brian Epstein to tell him. They immediately asked Starr, whom they had met and even performed with previously, to join the band permanently.
Starr had been the drummer for Rory Storm and The Hurricanes, at a time when they had been one of the top Merseybeat groups, a bigger group than The Beatles were. Martin, unaware of this personnel change, hired session drummer Andy White to play drums on The Beatles' first studio session on September 4 , Andy would be the session drummer during their 3rd EMI session on September 11, The Beatles recorded their first full length album, often "live" in the studio, on February 11 , in one 12 hour session; it was released as Please, Please Me in March. Beatlemania as a chaotic cultural phenomenon began in Britain on October 13 , with a televised appearance at the London Palladium.
Upon arriving at JFK airport , The Beatles noticed thousands of kids screaming and awaiting the plane's arrival. They assumed that there must have been someone important on the plane with them and were a bit shocked to learn that the crowds were actually there for them. Their appearance made their popularity explode across the country. To this day it remains one of the highest rated television programs of all time, with 73 million people tuning in.
The Beatles made four more live appearances on the show in months to come. On April 4 , , The Beatles set a record that has yet to be broken when they occupied all five top positions on Billboard's Hot they first appeared on Billboard on January 18th that year. Their single "Can't Buy Me Love" was at number one.
They started filming their second film, Help! From mid all the band members became habitual smokers of marijuana after reportedly being introduced to it when they met Bob Dylan for the first time in New York. In mid , according to Lennon and Harrison, they were unwillingly 'dosed' with LSD at a party by their dentist.
The dentist, however, never admitted that he had put anything unusual in Lennon's or Harrison's tea. Nevertheless, in the ensuing years, The Beatles met with psychedelic counterculture icon Timothy Leary , and began experimenting with the psychedelic drug. Two albums released during this period, Revolver and Sgt. Around this same time, Geoff Emerick took over as the new recording engineer at the beginning of the Revolver sessions.
With Emerick's help, the group incorporated a new sound into these two groundbreaking albums, one which represented a radical alteration compared to their previous studio work. A key innovation in their recording was the use of automatic double tracking , invented by Abbey Road staff engineer Ken Townshend , which allowed the group to automatically 'double' their vocals in recordings.
Townshend reportedly came up with the technique because of Lennon's well-known dislike of tracking sessions. In McCartney worked with George Martin on the film score for the Boulting Brothers ' film The Family Way that allowed him to use orchestration, another element that featured in the following albums, and he subsequently won an Ivor Novello award for the score. This honour is bestowed by the monarch under advisement by the Prime Minister for important services rendered to the nation. Many opposed the decision, and some recipients of the Order returned their own honours in protest, claiming that the title had been "devalued.
Lennon would return his own in with the note:. On August 15 , , The Beatles started their second North American tour at Shea Stadium , which was the first rock concert to be held in a venue of that size.
The concert also set two new world records, one for attendance 55, The statement was part of a two page interview and went virtually unnoticed in Britain. In July of that year, Lennon's words were reprinted in the United States fan magazine Datebook , leading to a backlash by conservative religious groups mainly in the rural South and Midwestern states. Radio stations banned the group's recordings, and their albums and other products were burned and destroyed. On August 11 , Lennon held a press conference in Chicago in order to address the growing furor.
He told reporters:. The performance ignited a lot of protest from local citizens who felt that it was inappropriate for a rock-and-roll band to play at Budokan. By the end of July, the band headed to the Philippines for a series of shows. The Beatles, while relaxing in their hotel room, read in the newspaper that they would visit the Malacanang Palace of President Ferdinand Marcos.
This came as news to The Beatles, who were tired from the tour and otherwise had a strict policy of keeping their rare days off to themselves so as to be consistent about their obligations. They spent a relaxing evening in the hotel, and awoke the next morning to death threats and newspaper headlines like "Imelda stood up! Epstein attempted to make a televised apology for the incident, but none of the local stations would air it. The following day, armed guards attempted to keep the band from leaving the country until they paid a fee of some kind. The Beatles, who hadn't been paid for their shows in the country, paid out of their own pockets.
The Beatles literally had to fight their way to the airplane.
Decades later with the fall of the Marcos regime and the full exposure of its abuses, the members of the band took some pride that they stood up to the Marcos' in some small way. Events like those in the Philippines, in addition to the fact that the fans screamed so loud at their concerts that they couldn't even hear themselves perform, led to the band deciding to quit touring altogether. The band performed their last concert at least on a large scale at San Francisco 's Candlestick Park on August 29 , With the distractions of touring behind them, The Beatles began recording Sgt.
The album took so much time to record for a Beatles record anyway that the press started to suggest that The Beatles had "lost it" and had run out of creativity. Pepper as it was not then customary to include singles releases on albums. Some were saved for later albums: the latter song becoming part of the Yellow Submarine film, but George Martin still refers to the omission of "Penny Lane" and "Strawberry Fields Forever" from Sgt.
Pepper as the greatest regret of his career. It was kept from the top spot by Engelbert Humperdinck 's "Release Me". Nonetheless, Sgt. Pepper's release on June 1 , , was a high point both for the band and for all of rock music, for it was the first-ever widely-popular concept album built around a particular theme and helped to launch what we know today as the "Classic Rock" format.
It was the first television special to air worldwide. The death was officially ruled accidental, although it has often been speculated that it was a suicide. Epstein had managed every aspect of The Beatles' career, and his absence was immediately noticeable. The Beatles' business affairs began to unravel. In January , The Beatles launched Apple Corps , a disastrously mismanaged entertainment company that included a recording studio, a record label Apple Records , a film division and clothing store.
Towards the end of the s , members of the band began to pursue their own musical interests and were writing together less and less. The Beatles was largely written during the band's visit to India , where they stayed at the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 's retreat. With the exception of Harrison, The Beatles eventually rejected the Maharishi, particularly after he was publicly disgraced. Lennon, disillusioned, wrote the song "Sexy Sadie" originally titled "Maharishi" about their former teacher. A number of unreleased songs from the Let It Be sessions also make reference to the Maharishi.
The double album has often been criticised for its varying quality and including too many tracks on what should have been a single LP release. The Beatles released two albums in order to be free of their EMI contract which stipulated a total number of recorded songs. It was during sessions for The Beatles that the band recorded " Hey Jude ", a seven-minute magnum opus which turned out to be the biggest-selling single of the group's entire career. In January , The Beatles began rehearsals for a new album project at the time entitled Get Back. The rehearsals at Twickenham Film Studios made it the first album the group had made away from Abbey Road and without the guidance of George Martin.
The recording sessions at Apple Studios were filmed for what would eventually become the Let It Be movie. Many ideas had been thrown around for the Get Back album, including the idea of recording it live during a surprise concert performance on top of a submarine, in an amphitheatre, or in a dance hall. None of these happened, but they did end the project with a live performance on the rooftop of the Apple Corps building in Savile Row , London , which was cut short when a local bank manager called the police to complain about the noise.
This impromptu concert, held on January 30 , , was to be The Beatles' last public performance. An edited version of the performance can be seen in the documentary film Let It Be. Eventually the band gave up on the project. Spector's signature "Wall of Sound" production was in direct opposition to the original intent of the record, which had been to bring the band full circle, and record a stripped-down live studio performance just as their first album had been.
McCartney in particular was critical of the results, particularly on tracks like " The Long and Winding Road ". It proved to be a relatively smooth and peaceful production and a highly acclaimed album. Lennon announced to the other Beatles that he was leaving the band just before that album's release but was persuaded to remain quiet in public.
Other DJs, television news reporters, newspapers and magazines picked up on the story and began to look for clues. This snowballed into what is commonly referred to today as the Paul Is Dead hoax. People that believed the rumors, claimed that McCartney had died in a car accident and was replaced by a look-alike named William Campbell.
Numerous clues were supposedly hidden in album artwork, lyrics, and recordings themselves fans even went so far as to play Beatles records backwards, for instance the words "number nine, number nine" on the song "Revolution 9" on The Beatles also known as "The White Album" became "turn me on, dead man, turn me on, dead man" when played counterclockwise. Another key clue apparently was the cover of the album Abbey Road in which Paul held a cigarette with his right hand, indicating his becoming reduced to ashes. Paul is left-handed.
The legendary hoax has been the subject of several books. The band officially broke up in The last Beatles studio session that included all four band members took place on August 20 , Ironically, one of the last songs they had completed as a complete group was titled "The End", although the last song that was finalized and approved by all four Beatles was " I Want You She's So Heavy ". EMI released Let It Be , the result of the Spector rework of the Get Back sessions, in May , and the film of the same name shortly after for the main purpose of fulfilling the group's contract with United Artists.
On April 10 , , McCartney announced that the band had officially broken up. The cause of the breakup has been debated by fans and historians ever since that day, and ultimately they came up with several factors that could have easily contributed to the breakup. It is likely that the world will never know what caused the break-up, following are some theories. It was the concluding concert in a series of short tours in the summer of that had several unhappy incidents. Viewed in hindsight, the occurrences were perhaps not as grave as they seemed at the time, but for a band that had toured almost without negative incident throughout and although FBI files reveal an extortion threat in Denver , Colorado on August 26,  , the existence of troubles during their tours was a straw that broke the camel's back.
Performing live was becoming a stressful chore rather than the satisfying experience it had been in their earlier days. The problems started during their tour of Japan , where they were scheduled to play at the famous Budokan Hall , despite the large protests against it. The performance was in front of a very quiet audience. This was a change from the band's usual, in front of fans that couldn't hear the music over their own screaming.
Due to the sudden ability to hear the band, it seemed that their ability to perform had degraded; a majority of the fans who have the bootleg of the show agree with this. Problems started with the band being denied permission to leave the hotel by the police. Then, shortly after their concert, the First Lady Imelda Marcos 'invited' them to a social event for her family and friends; however, neither the band nor manager Brian Epstein had been informed of this invitation in advance, and Epstein sent away the guards sent to escort the band to the First Lady.
This was perceived as a snub by Marcos. The next morning the local newspaper headlines proclaimed that The Beatles had stood up the First Lady. Angry riots broke out as the band tried to escape the country, and drummer Ringo Starr received rib injuries trying to reach their airplane. Numerous other Beatles touring crew members were also injured. Their instruments were lost, they were 'taxed' all the money they were due to have received from their concert, and several members of the touring party were left behind in the airport scuffles.
After the band's summer tour of the US ended, George Harrison by some accounts informed Epstein that he was quitting the band. If this conversation did occur, his decision was obviously rescinded. The thought behind it may be attributed to the growing discontent arising from the conflict between the desire to create music and the technical limitations of playing music live in the mids owing to the primitive amplification equipment of the era.
The Beatles decided to make a wholesale change in their lives. Instead of continuing the standard pattern of an endless succession of recording and touring, they decided to give up live performance in favor of focusing on recording and other projects. Given the growing sophistication in their composing and recording, as evidenced by the albums Rubber Soul and Revolver , they regarded this as a step forwards — an opportunity to devote whatever time was needed to creating music in the studio, without the usual pressures to record swiftly in order to meet commercial deadlines, or to have 'product' ready to promote on tour.
Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The new music resulting from this commitment to spend unlimited time on creating music in the studio was both critically acclaimed and commercially successful. The decision to give up live performance was quite a revolutionary step for successful musical performers in the s, and was probably alarming to those who had a traditional view of how entertainers should conduct their careers.
However The Beatles were clearly forging a new path as creative artists in which fulfilling their artistic urges was more important than toiling unhappily just because it was expected of them, or simply to make money. This approach was followed by many musical artists in the late s and thereafter. Eventually, the lack of live performance did lead to strains within the band. Paul McCartney in particular started to miss the positive aspects of playing live.
This led to conflicts, especially with George Harrison, who came to believe that The Beatles iconic status with pop fans was incompatible with the band being able to play live as serious musicians in the same way as some of the newer progressive rock bands. Harrison wanted The Beatles to be appreciated for their newer music. He felt that live performances would be marred by fans screaming for their 'moptop' era pop songs.
McCartney, however, felt that the essence of the band lay in live performance. Lennon and Starr vacillated between support of McCartney's and Harrison's viewpoints. After the issue of a possible return to live performance first surfaced, in late , there was never a time that all four Beatles were in agreement on the topic. This factor probably contributed to their eventual break-up. The Annual Fund donor honor roll has been published online at our website www.

After reading an article on the need for strategic chapter planning, Hamilton contacted Phi Kappa Theta to offer a complimentary subscription to PlanBase Hoshin, a Web-based application that optimizes organizational resources involved in deploying strategies, initiatives and projects globally. Hoshin Planning, also known as Hoshin Kanri, enables an organization to focus on shared goals, to communicate goals amongst company leadership, to involve all company leaders in planning how to accomplish these goals and to hold all leaders responsible for their components of the strategic plan.
Hoshin Plans cascade down an organization involving everyone from management to individual contributors. The PlanBase Hoshin solution is used by small, mid-size and large organizations alike to deploy and achieve the goals of their strategic planning initiatives. Users benefit from spending less time updating and tracking plans in MS Word or Excel, with more time for making progress towards their objectives.
These corporate experiences led to the idea of developing a software application that would make it easier to implement Hoshin Planning within an organization. Managing plans that include goals, strategies and tactics and involve thousands of employees had become an administrative burden for the organizations. Like many managers, he found the people were spending more time updating and reporting on past. He ventured into the world of software which ultimately led to the development of PlanBase Hoshin solution. The PlanBase company was launched soon after with the dual objectives of minimizing the burden of deploying and tracking strategic planning initiatives and increasing the success rate of organizations reaching their short-term and long-term goals.
PlanBase, Inc. PlanBase solutions are implemented on a Sold as a Service delivery model for rapid deployment and simplified management that results in a lower cost of ownership.

When Walker returned to the United States, he once again took up residence in his hometown of Jersey City, and began to pursue a career on Wall Street.
Inspired by his grandfather who had established the Lafayette Neighborhood Foundation many years earlier, and the values instilled in him during high school and college, Walker gave up his career on Wall Street, pooled his savings, and with the help of his brother, established Team Walker. Academically, Team Walker offers a variety of after school programs to assist students with homework, tutoring, etiquette, job interview skills and resume writing. Athletically, Team Walker offers opportunities in basketball, track, field, football, cheerleading and fencing.

Perhaps what truly motivated him to be active on campus and what has played a significant role in his career today was his experience as a member of Phi Kappa Theta at Washington State.
One of the values that Phi Kappa Theta instills in members at Washington State is a sense of involvement in activities beyond the confines of the chapter house. Given this mission, Wymer decided to try his luck running for president of the Student Government Association. Traditionally, student government presidents on campuses are juniors or seniors.
Through his efforts, he was instrumental in the construction of a new recreation center on campus. In fact, the students were so pleased with his leadership, they re-elected him for two more consecutive terms, something essentially unheard of in student government.
