Not sure if there's already a thread like this. Sorry if there is.

So, what are your favorite Beatles interviews or interview excerpts?

Here's one of mine:

Q: "Which one are you?"

JOHN: "Eric."

Q: (gesturing to the TV camera) "Eric, here is the American public…"

JOHN: "I'm John."

Q: "You're John?"

JOHN: "Yeah, it was a joke."

:D

Here's another:

Q: "How do the other guys feel about Ringo being nominated for President?"

JOHN: "We think he should win, you know."

PAUL: "Yes, we think he should."

GEORGE: "Definitely in favor."

Q: "Ringo, would you nominate the others as part of your cabinet?"

RINGO: "Well, I'd have to… wouldn't I?"

GEORGE: "I could be the door."

:D

And another:

Q: "Some of your more lively fans outside say that they're going to switch to the Rolling Stones, because they say that the Beatles didn't wave from the window. I would like your comment."

JOHN: "Well, if they're gonna leave us just for that, they may as well go anyway, you know."

:)

Don't know if there's a thread like this already either, but I think it's a good idea! 

''Press: Does it bother you that you can't hear what you sing during concerts? 
John: No, we don't mind. We've got the records at home.''

''Press: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven? 
Ringo: I love him. Especially his poems.''

''Press: Do you like topless bathing suits? 
Ringo: We've been wearing them for years.''

''Press (to George): Hi, you're not married. 
George: No, I'm George.''

'' Press: Is your wife expensive? 

John: Quite, quite… 

Paul: How much did she cost when you bought her? 

John: Er, she was about fifty pounds in Nairobi. 
George: But she was second hand, wasn't she?

Press: Was she second hand?? 
John: How dare you!''

 

''Press: Why don't you smile, George? 
George: I'll hurt my lips.''

Haha, love that.  a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

I love this one from Dallas:

 

Q: (to John) "What kind of girls do you prefer?"

JOHN: "My wife."

Q: "Your wife? What kind of girl is she?"

JOHN: "She's a NICE girl."

Q: "Ringo, when you marry, what kind of girl are you gonna…"

RINGO: "Oh I dunno. I haven't sorted one out yet. I like 'em all."

Q: (to George) "What kind of girl do you like?

GEORGE: "Uhh… John's wife."

JOHN: (smacks George on shoulder, jokingly) "Nobody likes a smart aleck."

(laughter)

Don't know if it's from the same interview but I can't deny the George fans:

a-hard-days-night-george-10

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

Saw this on youtube and found it quite interesting especially the second question to Ringo.

"Well, probably we'll sell less records, less people'll go to see the film, we'll write less songs, and we'll all die of failure" (John Lennon 8/64)

I've never seen this interview before. It's quite good so thought I'd post.

''We're just knocked out. We heard about the sell out. You gotta get an album out, you owe it to the people. We're so happy we can hardly count.''

Cracking interview and the bonus of the Scottish location and interviewers (the accentheart).

Paul makes a joke and John just sits there looking at him, stone faced.

John teasing the lassie interviewer over her hand gestures (she promptly shoves her hands down by her sides).

George looking so young.

Ringo making the others laugh.

 

Love that. Thanks for posting, Emily.

No problem. It's not often I come across interviews I've never seen before :D

I love that interview. It's often posted under the title of Paul tries to hide… um… his excitement to put it in polite terms. :-D

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

^^ Oh okay, I didn't know. Yeah, I can see why they call it that. He does look very fidgety :)
