While he was in The Beatles, someone fed him a Chicken sandwich tainted with rat poison and he almost died and is therefore afraid of eating meat

Why did Ringo Starr have no pants on in the I Am The Walrus video

Someone accidentally swapped his and George's trousers, and while George could fit into Ringo's trousers without much trouble (apart from the slight aid of a belt), George's trousers were much too narrow for Ringo to even get his feet into, so at the last minute he just went without. He figured no one would take it much amiss in the midst of all the other psychedelic nonsense that was going on. ahdn_paul_01

 

Which Beatle played what on Pink Floyd's first album (which was recorded alongside Sgt Pepper )?

John Lennon played the harmonica solo on Brain Damage, while Ringo played the electric harpsichord on Hey You, and during the outro of Shine On You Crazy Diamond, there's the backwards audio of Paul shooting George with a paintball gun, to which George screams "you fuck*** shitty ass god damn filthy stupid motherf***ing wanker", with fuck censored both times on the single version (although for the first one, they censor the ing by mistake). Also, John's the one singing the Ahh's in The Great Gig In The Sky while Billy Preston does the spoken dialogue in the intro and Pete Best plays the sitar and Ringo's the guy playing Wolfenstein 3D while snorting what looks like a line of cocaine, but is actually table salt on the album cover.

What instrument does Ringo Starr play on Queen's 1974 hit Killer Queen

According to the 3rd line in the 2nd verse of the song Getting Better , what type of deli meat did Pete Best have on his sandwich before Ringo "Maxwell Anderson" Starr killed him with his silver hammer?

They are second cousins.

Who told John that the guitar was alright as a hobby but he'd never make a living at it?

George Martin. He was wrong about many things, including George Harrison 's songwriting ability, but not this.

EMI. They produced more than enough copies to fill the Albert Hall. 

 

Which Beatle made the album 34 and 1/2? What does the number refer to?

Brian loved cheese; cheese on toast, macaroni cheese, cheese omelette, cheese straws, cheese pie. One of the big connections between Brian, George Martin and the Beatles was their love of cheese. There was a nod to their near-obsession in the 1966 christmas record when Brian got a rare speaking part and said

Meanwhile, high in the Swiss Alps two elderly Scotsmen munch on a rare cheese.

Ringo. Its the age Pete reached before he found out what the on-beat was, sadly he hasn't yet learnt how to play it.

 

Before Mal Evans was hired who provided the tea and sympathy to the Beatles?

Paul. It referred to his hat size during one of his more egomaniacal phases.

Which begs the question: which Beatle had the biggest hat size during non-egomaniacal phases?

Joseph "Junior" Tetley, son of one of the founders of Tetley Tea. mmm is such a fan of Tetley tea that when he learned that The Beatles drank it, he decided to check them out. He decided they were really great band.

What exactly was the job held by the man in the motor trade in the song She's Leaving Home ?

P.S. Our new players are doing a good job with the questions and answers. Thanks for playing.

Paul was the best and Faul was the worst. They were/are not the same person because...

Nope, not going there. Not without a map showing me how to get back home. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

Which unofficially released and now bootlegged Beatles song featured Billy Preston's cousin playing the zither?

At the Arthur Treacher's Fish 'N' Chips near the McDonalds.  They promised the Beatles that they would honor their expired Buy 1 Get 1 Free coupon if they belted out a couple of tunes.

Why didn't Ringo choose Shelly Long instead of Barbara Bach as his character did in Caveman?

Because Barbara Bach went to The Beatles 1965 Shea Stadium concert. Shelley Long did not.

What is "brummer striving"? Is is something John wanted to do or wanted to avoid?
