Many great musicians around the world, such as Radiohead, Oasis and more, considered the Beatles their mentors. Mayday, a popular Taiwanese band that claims to have been influenced by the British group, also said, “there wouldn’t be Mayday without the Beatles”.

In “The Beatles, Tomorrow” stage and behind-the-scene exhibition held in Taipei last year, Mr. Shihfang Ma, a music commentator dubbed “the walking Beatles encyclopedia”, and Matthew Tsai from Mayday joined to share their enthusiasm.

“If there were no Beatles, rock music might not have been the way as we knew it,” said Mr. Ma. “They were forerunners of ‘bands of original creations,’ and they experimented different styles to expand and explore new possibilities of pop music, while making rock a new form of artistic expressions.”
