The Beatles, Elvis Presley …
The most popular group of the 20th century is undoubtedly The Beatles. This music quartet started performing in Liverpool in 1958. They have novel singing style, long hair and unconventional dress and this made them favourites of teenagers around the world. The group included John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Lennon and McCartney wrote most of the Beatles’s songs including such hits as She loves you, I want to hold your hand, Yesterday, Yellow submarine etc. To their most popular albums belong: Help!, The Beatles, Yellow submarine, Let It Be, A Hard Day’s Night etc. They had very good manager. His name was Brian Epstein. Under command this men The Beatles record the best hits and albums. After his death were among the members conflicts and The Beatles felt apart and they had solo careers. There are also films about Beatles. It is A hard day’s night, Help, Yellow submarine, Let it be etc.
An American – originated singer and guitarist, whose style influenced the whole world, too, was Elvis Presley (1935-1977) with his eternal rock-and-roll.
I do not have my favourite kind of music. I can listen to every kind of music except country music and brass band. It is very hard for me to prefer some kind of music to another.
When you want to listen to more than one group live you should visit some music festival. There are two main kinds of festival, indoor and outdoor. I like more the outdoor ones. They are organized mainly in summer and they long more days and you can see many groups there. I was on one festival this summer. It was called Kraliky and it took place in one small town in the Czech republic. This festival has quite long tradition. It longs for three days and it has five music scenes where you can listen to all kinds of modern music. There is one big scene where the most interesting groups play. You can see concerts from morning until late at night sometimes even till the early morning. Except the music you can visit the film scene there. I liked this festival very much and I hope that I will be able to go there this year too.
