BERLIN (AP) - Forty-five years after the Beatles launched their international career in Hamburg, the music-loving German city is putting up a monument to the rock legends.

The radio station Oldie 95, the organizer, said that construction will begin this year of a steel monument representing the Fab Four _ Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr _ as well as Stuart Sutcliffe, an early Beatle who died in Hamburg in 1962.

The station says the €460,000 (US$625,000) monument will be built on a corner of the St. Pauli district near clubs where the boys from Liverpool launched an international name for themselves in 1962 with songs like "Love Me Do."
