Two rock bands emerged from the 1960s; each changed the world in their own right. The Beatles formed the culture for the Baby Boom, the largest number of births in history (somewhere like 1946 to 1957).
The Who defined rock in the mid-‘60s, spawning what would become punk rock. Each band has lost two members. Ironically, The Who lost its bass and drummer, while the surviving Beatles are the bass and drummer.
History will record that in the second half of the first decade of the 21st Century – in 2005, the remaining members of each group joined forces to form the super group – Who Are The Beatles. That’s exactly what the children of the Baby Boomers, the Britney generation, were asking when they formed. This Web site will follow the adventures of this new super group as it tries to forge a new history in music. Check back often to follow the story as it unfolds.
