 What about my favorites musicians?Well I have to said I have to speak better about my two favorite band through music´s history: the rolling stones and the Beatles. I have to said when I was a teenager I hate the music of beatles, I was, definitely enthusiastic fan of the stone . I disliked their pop music and I did hate their style. I prefer much more the sound of rock , but one day I was with a friend and we were listening to the radio when a batles sound startedt o sound and I rediscovered Beatlels music .and  even they become one of my favorites bands now. It show me many times you have to keep your mind open to the change¡

hi everybody! this's the best web-site for learning English!  

There is a musician I'd like to meet. He is dead, but he lives in his songs. His name is John Lenon. He's from Liverpool, one of the founding members of 'The Beatles'. He created amazing things, playing rock and popular music. He was born in October 9, in 1940. His first band was 'The Quarrymen', evolved into 'The Beatles' in 1960. Then John Lenon decided to start a solo career and produced his own albums: 'John Lenon/Plastic Ono Band' and 'Imagine'. I admire his music because it is fabulous and deep. it says whatever you do don't worry, let it be. I've got loads of questions to ask. I'd like to talk to him about his music and his life. May be he could give me a piece if advice how to avoid difficulties in this life.
