Victor Spaguetti was the name of George's psychedelic-y painted Fender Stratocaster after he got tired of calling it Rocky.

He was quite fond of the nursery song B-I-N-G-O, and wanted to pay tribute to it. 

Which song did the Beatles dislike performing live, and why?

(ps: sorry for my 3 month hiatus, school really got to me paul-mccartney)

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction. They hated performing it, as it was not a Beatles song. However, when you're playing a private corporate gig, you do what the client wants.

 

Are the rumors true that Paul is considering running for political office? What position is he running for and what is his platform?

He is running for Minister of Shiny Objects and his main platform is launching a lawsuit against the sun for failing to properly adjust to man-made climate change. 

 

To where did the Beatles travel in '68 in order to study with the Maharishi?

It's not a power or attorney, but it can rock as good as Gibraltar. Other names include: rocking chair in Hawaii, Arthur. 

Name Wings' first album.

Their hair smelled like rotten eggs.

 

Why did the Beatles' hair smell like rotten eggs?

George mentioned that he liked rotten eggs in an early interview, and all the fans began to throw them in appreciation at their concerts. 

 

What was the original title of Wings' Back To The Rotten Egg LP?

The Egg Got Away.

 

There hasn't been a new Beatles album in more than forty-six years. Why is that?

Thays a trick question, there have been new Beatles albums in the last 46 years, such as AnthologyLive At The BBC , and Live at the Hollywood Bowl(as opposed to the 1977 The Beatles at the Hollywood Bowl)

 

How has there still been Beatles albums released, after the band broke up 46 years ago?

The same songs are resold with different titles. The fans are so stupid they've yet to release.

 

Which Beatles album was boycotted by the Beatles before they recorded it in the studio?
