Adding on to the one about George being sick, I read in either Fab: an intimate life of Paul McCartney or The Beatles: The Biography, that the others put their cigarette stubs in it and John and Paul hacked up the wall and left it for the next guestsa-hard-days-night-paul-6

I am very happy, and one reason is because I have The Beatles. Thank you!!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

I like the song "Believe". That song was my childhood weirdly enough. Never an actual big fan of Cher however.

 

6 Degrees from Cher to the Beatles:

  1. Cher is a singer.
  2. Cher was married to guitarist Duane Allman for like 10 days.
  3. Duane Allman played lead guitar alongside Eric on the song "Layla".
  4. Eric Clapton wrote the song "Layla" for Pattie Boyd.
  5. Pattie Boyd was married to George Harrison but divorced him after she cheated on him with Eric and thusly falling in love with Eric (as well as other matters leading to said divorce).
  6. I think George was in the Beatles. Maybe the quiet one. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Okay not really a weird fact, but I just thought I would add something somewhat relevant to this thread.

3 degrees from Cher to the Beatles: Duane Allman also played guitar on Wilson Pickett's "Hey Jude" cover! (As our man Zig could've no doubt told us.)

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

Forgot about this cover! It's so good! I guess three degrees is an easier approach though.a-hard-days-night-ringo-4

Would you believe ... 1 or 2 degrees of separation between Cher and the Beatles?

(Sonny and) Cher's #1 song "I Got You Babe" immediately followed "Help!" on the UK charts in the summer of '65.

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
