Previous band names include, but are not limited to; Alf's Kid and Friends, The Lennon Aides and The Pete Best Experience.

Who did Paul replace to become the bass player for The Beatles?

Everybody thinks that Paul was the one that died in 1966 and was replaced by Billy, but really Billy Shears was the original Beatle, and was just nicknamed Paul after John thought he looked an awful lot like his friend Paul McCartney .  In 1966 Billy died in a car crash and John had the idea to replace him with his friend Paul.

 

What was the real reason that George didn't want "Carnival Of Light " on Anthology?

Paul just made up that "George hated it" nonsense. What really happened was that Martha buried it in the yard in 1969. Paul doesn't own a metal detector. 

 

What does Paul know about Ringo that noone else does?

Shortly after the Beatles' breakup, Ringo founded and headed up the Palestinian Liberation Organization. 

 

Will Linda McCartney's name ever be memorialized in the National Museum of the Mullet Coiffure?

Mal won most of the matches by default. This is because Ringo employed the French military battleground tactic of surrender.

Who decided to hire Mal in the first place and what prompted this decision?

Brian's fourth secretary. She thought Mal was HOT! Brian was desperate to keep her happy because he was tired of training a new secretary every few months.

Who drove the van on that trip when it was freezing and The Beatles were in the back making "Beatle sandwiches"?

That would be former British restaurant critic and TV cook, Fanny Cradock. She heard of The Beatles Sandwich and set out to review it. She had a lot of explaining to do to her editor the next morning.

 

Realizing they had outgrown Liverpool, to which city did The Beatles move?

She was Paul's mistress. 'The sky' was code for bed, and John liked her too, so he tried to win her with copious amounts of diamonds. 

 

When did the Beatles break up?

Adding piano bits to the angels' harmonies.

Why was George so deeply into conspiracy theories?

I was going to ask, 'Which George?

The real one or the one they replaced him with after he died?' a-hard-days-night-paul-4 

but then I saw the pic. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Because he was fascinated by the press, who spread and usually created such rumours. He even wrote songs in their honour, such as 'Devil's Radio'. 

 

Which Beatle George died first?

This is slightly off topic but I can't find a better place.

There is an android app called quizup that has several excellent beatles & music related topics. It's a trivia game app that matches you with a random opponent somewhere in the world. I've been playing it for several months and have learned a lot (like where Apollo C. Vermouth comes from - but thanks to the BB I knew the answer anyway, it asked who was credited as ACV on some song). 

There are lots of other interesting topics if you're into trivia too. I highly recommend it.

Half of what I say is meaningless...

I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day

He sang "rice" instead of "night."

 

As the years rolled on, the role of Paul's sheepdog "Martha" had to be played by several canines.

How many dogs in total appeared as "Martha" on the popular television series, "Lassie?"
