Magical Mystery Tour

I took the tour!  My visit to Liverpool was inspired by 50 years of Beatles music that never gets old.   Being a huge Beatles fan, having the chance to see where they were born and lived kinda completes the story.  I didn't expect to find the friendliest UK city I've visited so far and would love to live here. The Beatles, all from Liverpool became the most successful band in pop music.  Brian Epstein, also from Liverpool managed the group for 25 % of all earnings and made the Fab 4 famous. Epstein died of a drug overdose in 1967 at the age of 32.  This was believed to be the beginning of the end, of the Beatles as a group.  The songwriting talents of McCartney and Lennon topped the US and UK charts with sales records that might not ever be broken.  John Lennon said that the influence of Elvis Presley's bad boy rock n roll opened the door for their massive success.  This was a really interesting tour,,,ya gotta do it...
