Beatles Trivia


The Beatles got their name from a line in the movie "The Wild Ones". Lee Marvin's character had a line in the movie where he referred to the women in the gang as "beetles." The Beatles changed the 'ee' to 'ea' so it was like the musical term 'beat'.

The BEATLES won a GRAMMY in 1964 for "BEST NEW ARTIST".

The BEATLES's movie HELP was originally titled "Eight arms to hold you".

The BEATLES played Shea Stadium in New York City on August 15, 1965 playing for 35 minutes and sang 12 songs in front of 56,000 fans. They were paid $160,000.

The BEATLES movie "A Hard Day's Night" won TWO Academy Awards.

The BEATLES gave The ROLLING STONES their first hit single "I WANNA BE YOUR MAN".

Before he was a BEATLE, JOHN LENNON was the leader of the group called THE QUARRYMEN, named after The QUARRY BANK GRAMMAR SCHOOL located in Woolton, England.
