You can help with the recording of just one song. Which song do you choose, and how are you involved (i.e. what instrument you play, playing George Martin and helping to produce it, etc.)?

Ooh, "Helter Skelter"! I'd love to have been an extra guitarist on that one – it's one of the very few Beatles tracks I can play in its entirety, more or less. And if they didn't need another guitar, I could employ my (entirely self-taught) (and entirely incompetent) saxophone skills to contribute to the noise-freakouts…

 

Ugliest album cover?

The current CEO is Jeff Jones. But since he cant do anything major without permission from 2 beatles and 2 beatle estates (Yoko and Olivia) who the heck knows. I doubt they do at times.

 

You can change 1 album into a different running order, which one do you think you could improve (adding no new songs and taking none away)?

Only one album? :)  I've got a few minor tweaks I'd like to execute. On With The Beatles, I'd switch "All I've Got To Do" and "All My Loving" - two fast ones followed by a slow one, like the other early albums. Also, I'd prefer Rubber Soul to end with "Wait" instead of "Run For Your Life", so I'd do a bit of jumbling there. Finally, side 2 of the White Album has too much Paul, and side 4 too little, so I'd try to even that out, maybe move "I Will" to side 4.

 

OK, you have the ability to time-travel back to when John was still living. What piece of modern-day music (like, from 1990 or later) do you take with you to play for him and BLOW HIS MIND (whether in ecstasy or horror, doesn't matter) at how freaky and futuristic it is?

I just want to play. I’d like to think I could work opposite Sinatra, B.B. King, the Beatles, or a polka band... - Jazz musician Rahsaan Roland Kirk, 1967

I think Tomorrow Never Knows' question went unanswered,but i really have no idea. As for sun king's question, i suppose Abbey Road would have been better but then again it's merciful it wasn't because perhaps people were not quite as disappointed for beatles' breakup(if that really had any effect)

Do you think that the line"lift my head" in I'm Only Sleeping refers to john or whoever it is that is trying to wake him up?(im asking this because there was a really weird translation of that line in finnish edition of cant buy me love)

I think it's John lifting his head off his pillow. Although it's kind of funny imagining whoever's waking him up (I always think of Paul for some reason) forcibly pulling his head up.

Okay, another really weird question: In the event of a zombie apocalypse, which Beatle would be most likely to survive the zombie horde?

It would definitely be Paul.a-hard-days-night-paul-6a-hard-days-night-paul-2paul-mccartney He survived Heather Mills which I believe is worse than a Zombie Attack. He came out smiling and even got married AGAIN after that attack. He is indestructable!!

Well, Lucy in the sky and sweet Mary Jane were probably the biggest influences...

 

What are your favorite solo songs from each of the Beatles?

John- Instant Karma

Paul- Maybe I'm Amazed

George- Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp

Ringo- I'm The Greatest

 

If The Beatles were starting out today, would they be successful? Would they reach Lady Gaga status?

They would still be very successful but maybe to not such an insane level with the crowds. Good music and talent will prosper. But Lady Gaga status? Hmm... she does wear a telephone on her head.

 

Taking that theme if the beatles were to appear on the xfactor or any of these talent shows would they win?

Yes, by default. The actual question for me is would they be so loved now, or would they basically end up an indie band who makes it big, an Arcade Fire, if you will. But back to this;
New Question:
You could correct 1 production error of George Martin's, what would you change, how, and why? (for example {not true in the slightest for me} someone would say the solo in In My Life. George should have had a solo on guitar. It was a mistake because it dates the song. That's paraphrasing what a member said months ago - not honest to me in the slightest.)

The orchestration on Good Night. I know its meant to be that way but it is way too sweet, clingy and clawing. A very sickly arrangement that makes it very difficult to swallow and keep down. Oh and remove the orchestral work on WMGGW on Love and Grow Old On Me on the Lennon Anthology.

 

Should the Magical Mystery Tour lp be ripped up and Strawberry Fields and Penny Lane taken off and placed back on Pepper for itunes accouts, sorry future releases, to make everything nice and ordered, sorry period relative?

John – Bring It On Home To Me/Send Me Some Loving (Rock 'n' Roll)

Paul – Dont Let The Sun Catch You Crying (Tripping the Live Fantastic)

George – Roll Over Beethoven (Live in Japan) (edit: just remembered George's cover of The Everly Brothers Let It Be Me so i'll go for that instead)

Ringo – Whispering Grass (Don't Tell the Trees) (Sentimental Journey). I heard this on a bbc documentary broadcast to promote Let It Be's release in 1970 (via a mp3 download – im not that old) and quite liked it.

 

Of all the songs that the beatles covered either in concert or at the bbc but didnt include on their albums would you have liked to have been? (For example i'd have loved I'm Talking About You and/or Soldier Of Love.)

I was writing a long response why "I'll be on my way" should have been on their first album, but then I realized that technically it isn't a cover a-hard-days-night-george-1 So I'm gonna say "don't you ever change", I like the way George sings in this one. I sometimes feel he is lacking in feeling when he's doing cover versions, but in that he doesn't.

 

So...Do you think Paul should turn vegan?

No. He needs healthy protein-type nourishment. I freak out a little thinking about vegan people's health, veggie is far enough IMO.

If you could have been a backup singer, what song would you pick?

Definitely "You're Gonna Lose That Girl"

 

I once saw Ringo having dinner at a restaurant in Hollywood at which I was dining. Any other personal contacts with the boys?
