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:

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

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

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

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

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

Here's a nice interview.

https://youtu.be/GgGJci4bbl4

Rare footage of When The Beatles came to Dublin in 1963 (VIDEO)

The video show John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr disembarking from a plane at Dublin Airport on November 7, 1963. They then sit down with on the noisy runway tarmac to talk to RTE’s Frank Hall.

During the interview, which aired on Radio Telefis Eireann later that evening, the band members talk about their hair, their music and their Irish heritage.

The Beatles came to Dublin to play two shows at the Adelphi Cinema that night. It was the

only time they appeared in concert in the Republic of Ireland.

You are right, @AppleScruffJunior. Paul and Ringo need to do some concerts in Ireland!

Last time Ringo did a concert here was in '98, Paul in 2011. 

 

Another great interview from that day is 

 

Where George tries to push John in front of a car at the beginning 😛
