How Paul and John beat the odds to become rock's most dynamic duo
The halls of rock and roll history are laden with larger-than-life individual rock stars and fabled bands. To me, what's interesting is when two artists share the spotlight and work as a team to craft some of the greatest songs we've ever heard. There's Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Elton John and Bernie Taupin, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, among many others. It's undeniable these pairings have given us some of the greatest songs ever written.

Within the Beatles catalog are mentions of places both real and fictional. Any Beatle fan planning a trip to England would be remiss to not spend a day in Liverpool and see the Beatles hometown for themselves.

Strip away all the late ‘60s idealism, the verses with lyrics that would perplex the advertiser’s coveted channel surfer (There's nothing you can do that can't be done? Huh?) and what do you have? A chorus with a generic message that can be applied to just about any product.
