Just to note that it tomorrow it will be 50 years since the Beatles Single 'Love me do' was released. It only reached No 17 in the UK charts, it was later to reach No 1 in the USA. However, it marked the start of Rock Music, a British genre of music developed from Rock and Roll but also influenced by other genres including as Rhythm and Blues and Jazz. It also marked the start of the remarkable career of the Beatles. Like them or not, no group has ever had such an impact in Britain, USA and worldwide. They still have more No 1 album hits in the USA than any other artist and came top, by a long way, in the Rolling Stone magazines top 500 tracks and top 500.
