"I can remember the exact moment when I first heard The Beatles. I was 11 years old but I recognised immediately that their sound was something significant. The Beatles had a huge influence on my early life, and the fact that my musical heroes came from a similar background to my own gave me and an entire generation of musicians the confidence and permission to follow our dreams. From The Beatles to the jobbing musicians who play in the pubs and clubs up and down the country every week, Britain has a strong and vibrant musical heritage which is truly great." - Sting
