Is an explanation really needed here?

What was the sweet stuff that Paul's little lady left behind?

I'm not sure but i think it has something to do with certain California grass, and a few dovetail joints and such...
In 1968 The Beatles lived a strange adventure aboard a weird vehicle. What was that adventure about, and why did they use that vehicle?

The adventure was looking for Martha, because she had run off. The vehicle was John's psychedelic Rolls Royce, which was used because John wanted to show it off to all the sheepdogs in town. 

Where did they eventually find Martha?

The George penned "Yoko Claus" about George accidentally leaving his digestive out on Christmas eve...

However, what gifts did Yoko Claus leave George behind in the song that cheered him up (or should I say cheered him down a-hard-days-night-george-10)?

A box of Kleenex for his gently weeping guitar. George was greatly touched by this display of consideration for his beloved Lucy.

Why didn't the Beatles record the last Christmas Record all together?

They had previously recorded All Together Now and thought it was rubbish.

True or false: John Lennon and Paul McCartney were friends throughout much of their lives.

Original plan was that The Beatles, along with Yoko, Linda (with little Heather in tow,) Allen Klein, John Eastman, and their secretaries would just record a day-long business meeting and earmark the funnier bits to edit together, then add a generic greeting message on top. But the plan fell apart when George and Yoko separately vanished during a tea break; ultimately,  the meeting broke up early. The morning did produce a nice impromptu version of the old Elvis standard "Blue Christmas" (with all present, including George Martin, contributing vocals, but sadly, copyright clearance wasn't granted.

What was John's kick against modern jazz?

False. On every third Thursday of the month, John and Paul would become mortal enemies and have a grand, terrifying, death-defying song-write-off. Many were the hotel rooms, back gardens, booths at Abbey Road , etc. left forever changed by witnessing these events.

The rest of the time, though, they were the best of friends, they were the worst of friends...!

Which Beatle was the most academically inclined?

There's technically no wrong answer to that, but my honest opinion is below.

Oh... gosh. 1970 was a bad year for Beatle 'dos. Ummm... I'd say Paul, though, he was transitioning into full-on woeful 70s mullet by that point.

Carry on...

Which Beatle had the worst hair in 1970?

One of Ringo's hairs was a violent criminal who committed armed bank robbery in 1970, so Ringo. Metropolitan Office of the London Police, not willing to cause The Beatles and Apple any embarrassment, sat on their evidence until Ringo had the offending hair removed by Bioletti, the barber, after which it was quietly swept up and placed under arrest. 

Why did George not record "My Sweet Lord " with the Beatles?

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

The reason is explained in this short conversation -

George: Hey, guys. 

*ignored*

George: hELLO!?!  

They weren't talking to him that day.

Why wasn't the rest of the band talking to George?

I'm afraid they'd lost the touch that seemed to mean so much, and there was nothing that could be done about it. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Let's turn to happier subjects: According to George, what was the right amount of birthday cake to be eaten in one sitting?

On any other day, how much cake is all too much?

Please excuse this interruption. I have an important announcement:

There is no such thing as too much cake. NO SUCH THING I TELL YOU.

That would be "Take a piece but not too much," the lyric being written earlier that day when Yoko hesitantly reached for a packet of George's biscuits.

Aside from easy ones like "Quarrymen" and "Beatals", what are some other early bandnames?
