The Beatles were one of the most popular Rock & Roll music groups of all time. The band consisted of John Lennon on guitar, Paul McCartney on bass, George Harrison on additional guitar, and Ringo Starr on percussion. The band flourished in the early- to mid-1960s, growing a passionate following and fan base based upon a global phenomenon known as “Beatlemania.” However, the Beatles began to break-up during the late 1960s, dissolving the group by the end of the decade. The band’s break-up was a long and tumultuous process that developed over a number of years in the late 1960s. The sole cause of their break-up has continuously been debated by modern music critics and popular culture scholars. However, there wasn’t just one cause as to why the band eventually broke up. Rather, the band’s eventual break-up was a cumulative process created by a series of conflicts and setbacks.
