Liverpool beat combo who enjoyed some success in the 1960s. This one got to No 2 in the UK charts. Formerly The Silver Beatles (and before that, The Silver Beetles or The Beatals). The name was suggested by Stuart Sutcliffe, their original bass guitarist, as a tribute to Buddy Holly’s backing group, The Crickets. They were known as The Rhythm Beatles in Hebrew, but this did not stop the Israeli government banning them.
