Were you wondering why there are some random smileys that aren't The Beatles? mal-evansneil-aspinall 

It crossed my mind; but I just assumed they must have been Klein/Martin types associated somehow with the Beatles, but that side of the Beatles rarely interests me.  The one exception is when I read things like that George Martin helped score the classical strings in Eleanor Rigby and played the harpsichord for "In My Life" -- which I just now, I learned to my fascination was really a piano played low on the keyboard then sped up to sound like a harpsichord!

Here's another embarrassing indication of my Beatles-ignorance:  I didn't know who "Maureen" was until last month!

P.S.:  I just learned while reading the history on Eleanor Rigby up top that John referred to Mal as a "telephone installer"...

kneeler said Their has been so much written about the Beatles that I could not add anything new to their story, I have thought about it but I don't think a publisher would be that interested in my tale. Hope the answers are any use. 

Kevin's humility is nice; however, often people don't realize many ordinary events they experience, particularly if in contact with famous and talented people, may actually be quite extraordinary -- or at least certainly of interest.

The English writer H.E. Bates during World War 2 was paid by the R.A.F. to write fiction stories about the pilots, sort of to inspire morale amongst the British people.  To illustrate the principle of my first paragraph above, he recounted how one morning he was sitting in the mess hall and a pilot came in from his runs and sat down.  Bates asked him if anything unusual had happened.  The pilot said "No, nothing out of the ordinary; saw two sunrises as I was coming down."  Bates wrote that he almost spat out his coffee.  What seemed like a boring banal experience to the pilot was, to Bates the writer, solid gold.  It seems that if you bring a plane down for a landing just when it's dawning, you see one sunrise when you're up high, then a second one after you dip down fast.  Bates couldn't wait to go back to his typewriter and create a story around that little anecdote.
