Re: Were the Beatles just a boy band in the beginning?

Nope...not by what we classify boy bands today.
Indeed...they stopped touring because they didn't like the fact that they were seen as a boy band by those at the concerts who were reacting in a way they didn't like.
All bands with men then become boy bands in the early days... ....Dave Clark 5, Zombies. The Who, Kinks, Stones, etc.

Well if fans reacted to them as if they were a boy band, would that not in and of itself make them a boy band?
