The Beatles grew up in post-war Liverpool, a busy shipping port on the west coast of England. Because of the shipping, sailors (known locally as Cunard Yanks) were constantly coming and going with goods they had brought home from, amongst other places, the USA. These goods were frequently American recordings of blues, jazz and rock and roll artists that were not available in England at the time, England still being in the grip of post-war rationing.
The US rock and roll imports had a great impact on the soon to be Beatles and they were listening to Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Little Richard and others when the rest of the country was barely aware of their existence. Buddy Holly has also been cited as an early Beatles influence.
They found inspiration from their contemporaries as well. Bob Dylan heavily influenced Lennon during the 60's. Lennon often borrowed Dylan's songwriting formula, in which the songwriter writes very poetic, indirect lyrics, which leave the listener to interpret the true meaning of the song. Several Bob Dylan-influenced Beatles songs include "Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown)" and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away".
They were divinely inspired.
No, LMFAO are not influenced or inspired by the beatles, they are inspired by rappers and pop stars (they told the press this in 2009)
I would say it's safe to say nearly everyone. If a band you listen to didn't directly listen to the Beatles, they were inspired by someone who did listen to the Beatles.
The Beatles inspired him.
The Beatles was inspired a lot by Oasis.
The Beatles have inspired many people.John Lennon was protesting against war.
It is not known who influenced Ringo Starr, but since he was the last person to join the Beatles, it could have been the Beatles themselves who inspired Starr.
They are definitely inspired by The Beatles' sound on some pop tunes like "Beetlebum".

It is known that The Beatles were in friendly competition with The Beach Boys. The Beatles' 1966 album 'Revolver' inspired The Beach Boys' 'Pet Sounds' which in turn inspired The Beatles' 1967 album 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'.
