It’s been nearly 60 years since The Beatles first set foot on Ed Sullivan’s show stage, the “four lads who shook the world” are still as popular today as they were that day in 1964 – perhaps even more so.
One of the band’s surviving members, drummer Ringo Starr that is, feels there are specific albums that its youngest new fans would do well to be exposed to first.
What are Ringo’s picks for the newest and youngest Beatles fans? No Meet The Beatles or A Hard Day’s Night here. Starr wants them started on the band’s later work.
“They should listen to Revolver and Abbey Road and if they really get to like us, they should listen to [the album known as] the White Album,” Ringo recommended.
Forbes reported in 2019 that of Spotify’s 1.7 billion Beatles songs streamed, 18- to 24-year-olds accounted for over 30% of Beatles listening that year.
