It was easier to spell than Eponymous.

But you'll notice that your spell checker will approve Eponymous, whereas it'll loudly protest Stig O'Hara. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Did Ringo ever fulfill his life long dream of becoming not one, but two hairdressers?  

No, he's too one-of-a-kind. 

 

Which Beatle broke the Internet, and how?

It was John. He said some people might think that penguins might be cuter than kittens and the meltdown on Twitter was enough to send a cascade through forums, IRC, and news site comments that the internet actually broke. Hence his famous statement "And now it's all hiss".

How did Paul describe the issue of his drug-taking being reported?

Depends on what you mean by describe. He spent the whole interview giggling, marveling at the microphone and all the wires, and asking for food as he was starving.

Jesus said he was bigger than the Beatles. 

 

Why didn't the Beatles go with the original plan to name their last album Everest?

They planned to climb it as part of a week long real-time TV spectacular but John and Yoko decided they wanted to be filmed imagining climbing it instead and that was that.

 

What did George play on top of a bus as his "audition" to be a member of the The Quarrymen?

He was sick of Ringo trying to play his guitar when he wasn't looking.

McLennon. Sparking many a story, rumour, speculation and fan story over why Paul's Mc was first ahead of John with Le. Google McLennon and see for yourself.

 

Why did George get a black eye in the Cavern club during Ringo's debut gig there as a fully licensed Beatle?

His eyes were quite dark brown already, and they had the lights down so that the fans wouldn't notice that they had switched drummers in the night. 

 

How much French does Paul speak?

The man on the flaming pie. 

 

Who taught Paul French? (Hint: It definitely wasn't @AppleScruffJunior -- if it had been, he'd have retained some vocabulary.)

Larry, Moe, and Curly. What an amazing side career job they had. Very successful.

What did The Beatles call the uppers they took when they were performing in Hamburg?
