Early images of the Beatles as the Fab FIVE brought to life in color

Daily Mail Logo Daily Mail | Slide 1 of 16: A series of black and white photos of The Beatles have been brought to life in color ahead of what would have been John Lennon's 80th birthday. Dating from 1960 to 1962, the enchanting images show the Fab Four when they were in fact a fivesome, performing at clubs in Hamburg and Taunton's Wyvern Social Club. They feature drummer Pete Best, who would later be replaced by Ringo Starr, as well as original bass guitarist Stuart Sutcliffe, who left the band to pursue his career as a painter, before his untimely death in 1962. Professionally colorized for the first time, thanks to 19-year-old artist Daffa Anargya Sandjono from South Tangerang, Indonesia, the pictures give a glimpse into the iconic band's early years.
