Well it's easy once you've found the correct page. (Care to guess what book I found it in?)

Here's one of my own: What was Paul McCartney's nom de plume?


Do you mean on their Scottish tour with Johnny Gentle? That'll be Paul Ramon. Or later on, The Fireman? Or in the 70s, Percy Thrillington? Or as a 60s songwriter, Bernard Webb? I'm sure there's a full list out there somewhere.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Norman's bio? I think that's where I first saw it. (But I'm sure it was quite easily googled!) a-hard-days-night-john-5

I want to know if my answers were right re: George's guitars on The White Album! (Only partially-googled...)

Okay, I'll answer some of paulsbass's questions (the two I can answer without googling, anyway...):

1.) Which famous French folk song is used for backing vocals in which song?

Frere Jacques in Paperback Writer

2.) Which member of the Rolling Stones is actually playing an instrument on an official Beatles record?

Brian Jones played the saxophone on You Know My Name

5.) Which song has a sung bass-line?

 

Paul "scats" the bass line in "I Will," if that's what you meant.

 

6.) Which song has guitars, drums, but no bass at all?

 

Tim Riley claimed in his book that "Two of Us" had no bass in it, but I think that's rather suspect.

 

7.) Who is the artist with the most covers by the Beatles?

 

This is a total crap-shoot, but ... Little Richard?

Not a bit like Cagney.

5) "I will" is correct. On the stereo-version there is only Paul singing, no real bass.

 

6) I was thinking of another one. "Two of us" is hard to tell, if the bass line is played on a guitar. I think so, so you're answer might count as well!

In fact, "For You Blue" doesn't have bass either, I just realized. I'm still thinking of another one.

 

7) Nope, not Little Richard. I'm counting the "Live At The BBC" album too, btw!

Were you thinking of "Mother Nature's Son"?  I don't think that has a bass in it ...

Nope. I see I should have done better research. Too many possible answers are not good. It's a pre-Sgt. Pepper's song.

Haha, it's figures that he would have more than one. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

I'm thinking of the one he used when he donated money to The International Times and gave to friends so their letters would stand out from the fan mail.
