'Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles' comes to Sacramento

At the beginning and at the end, the Beatles were a rock 'n' roll band – not just any band of course, but arguably the greatest, most enduring, most influential and certainly one of the most successful. They've sold more albums in the United States than any other artists and had more No. 1 albums on the British charts while holding on to No. 1 longer than any other musical act. Due to that popularity, their lasting cultural impact is undeniable.Still they were a band, starting out playing Elvis Presley covers in dark little clubs before finding massive fame and fortune, then ultimately breaking up as most bands do. The individual talents, though considerable, never quite matched the sum of the collective parts, but having gone their separate ways, fate intervened so there never could be a reunion. The band's music has lived on, inspiring generations of musicians to imitate the sounds and styles. It also still engages fans, from those who remember tearing the plastic sleeves off new copies of the "Abbey Road" LP to those not yet born when John Lennon was killed.

Life is what happens when your busy making other plans. John Lennon
