This amazing vintage tee commemorates the 10th anniversary of the legendary rock 'n roll band, the Beatles. Beatles members Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr founded the band in 1960 and began playing in club's in Hamburg, Germany. There, the Beatles were able to put hundreds of hours into perfecting their sound and they became an unstoppable force in rock 'n roll. By 1963, they released their debut album, Please Please Me, and "Beatlemania" officially took over. After some trouble getting the rights to the band's songs in the US, the Beatles made their American debut in early 1964 and the British Invasion hit full force. This period is often referred to as the Beatles "touring years" as they released albums in quick succession and toured in promotion of them. The Beatles ended their touring years with a concert at San Francisco's Candlestick Park where fans were reportedly so loud the band couldn't hear themselves play.

The time known as their "Studio Years" was between 1966 and 1970. The Beatles were focused on their experimental recording work. In that time the British band produced the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, Magical Mystery Tour, The White Album, Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road, and Let It Be. The Beatles became emblematic of youth culture at the time and their work from this period is still studied for its influence on 60s counterculture.

The band would break up in 1970 due to strains in their professional and personal relationships. At one point, Lennon even wanted his and McCartney's compositions to be on opposite sides of the Abbey Road album. All four members would go on to release solo work, to varying degrees of success. Around the time of the Beatles 10-year anniversary, the band's record label, Apple Records, released compilation albums such as the Red Album and the Blue Album which have both gone multi-platinum in the US.
