Beatles have tremendous contribution towards the musical world. They were the first one to give credit to their inspirations i.e. Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochrane, etc. apart from that they were the first one to use the trio of guitars that is the rhythm, lead and bass guitars along side with the drums. They also incorporated the wooden instruments into their music like violins and symphony etc. they also used the exotic instruments like sitar into their recordings (Miles, 2002). Before the Beatles there was the concept of a lead singer but they break the custom of having just one lead singer and in Beatles they allowed each of their members to sing on lead at any given song.
According to Chris Ingham, author of The Rough Guide to Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday and Metallica – Hit the Lights, in his 2003 book, The Rough Guide to the Beatles, “The Beatles were fresh local produce who ushered in a new status quo, and drew up new templates they bequeathed to the groups that followed them. Their TV performances were polite, well-groomed, unthreatening affairs, but The Beatles were a Trojan horse concealing the future” (Ingham, 2003).
