Okay, so there's a reason I did this. One of my friends is a HUGE Beatles fan, but she absolutely hates One Direction. She says 1D is trying to copy the Beatles, and no matter how many times I tell her they aren't, she never listens. I'm hoping this little list I made will prove her wrong.

 

If you see any mistakes, please let me know. I want to be as accurate as possible.

·         Band History (Quoted from www.contactmusic.com/info/beatles): “John Lennon met Paul McCartney in 1957 when he was playing in a skiffle group named The Quarrymen. He invited McCartney to join the group and later, George Harrison also joined. Stuart Sutcliffe then joined on bass.

 

The band had a number of gigs lined up in Germany, but had no drummer. Eventually, Pete Best was invited to drum for the band.

 

Upon their return to Liverpool in 1961, Brian Epstein saw the band for the first time, at the now-infamous Cavern Club in Liverpool. The band auditioned for Decca (The Rolling Stones' label) but failed the audition. Epstein took it upon himself to fire Pete Best from the band and they hired Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr).”

The band, whose name ‘One Direction’ was created by Harry, went through the judges house, singing a cover of Natalie Imbruglia’s ‘Torn’, and each of the weeks of the X-Factor. The band reached the finals, but failed when Rebecca Ferguson and Matt Cardle beat them out. Simon decided to give the band a second chance and signed them to his label.

Yeah, the bowl haircuts i think it was called? 
I love some songs of the Beatles, but they're nothing like One Direction ! :D


;)  :P Crazy, Random Asian Girl  :rolleyes:

:lol: Hoping to be able to meet the boys one day :lol:

 I love food and taking photographs of random things ;)

-_- Have a love & hate relationship for the weather <_< 

Being able to see the boys perform with my bestie Lynndra would be the best thing ever! And also one less thing to check off on my bucket list. Yes, I have a bucket list. Do you?  ;) 

 

I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE BOYS IN SINGAPORE ON 11/03/2015
