A new infographic has just been released by Confused.com charting the chronology of The Beatles record sales, starting with Please Please Me and ending with Abbey Road.
The infographic makes it easy and entertaining to see just how incredibly huge The Beatles was as a band. Abbey Road alone went platinum 12 times. Some artists hardly manage to reach platinum status once, let alone a dozen times. In total, The Beatles have sold over 200 million records -- an astounding number for a single rock band.
Confused.com extends its Beatles infographic to include each member's post-Beatles career. This section reveals that Sir Paul McCartney has been the most successful, with five platinum, ten gold and two silver records in the United Kingdom alone.
The Beatles continues to hold the status of the most influential rock band of all time. This infographic makes it clear that the Beatles fandom will never die out, but continue to pass on through generations infected with Beatlemania.
