They needed more animal sounds while recording Good Morning Good Morning .

Which Beatles song has a lot in common with a well-known nursery rhyme? What is the connection?

Tie Your Mother Down because it has Billy Preston, Zac De La Rocha, and George Michael playing a harmonica solo on the same harmonica, all 3 of these people have cameos in the special edition of Return Of The Jedi as drug dealers, Kirk Hammett, the man who made the movie, was born in Mexico, the same place the classic fairy tale The Three Little People that beat the living shit out of that goddamn purple tree was made, which is funny because the 2 lead guitarists, Ringo Starr and Fred Durst, were both addicted to the poison berries that came out of said purple tree and John Lennon 's pet squirrel Bartholomew was born in a purple tree.

Which Beatle was allergic to broccoli.

Maybe you should try posting more.

John. He tried smoking it, snorting it, and even eating it, but he still never could get high so he claimed he was allergic when it was passed around at the hippest establishments of the day. And thus was the saga of John Lennon and broccoli.

Which Beatle?

Frank worst. He played the drums briefly right after Pete Best was fired and before Ringo joined.

What was the dream where Paul dreamt the song Yesterday about?

That's easy, they recreated the scene for Magical Mystery Tour when the fat girl's eating spaghetti from a shovel.

Why was Jimmy Nicol temporarily replaced with Ringo Starr in 1964?

Jimmy was the Nicol, but Ringo was a Starr. 

. . . 

Which of Pink Floyd's albums was recorded right next door to Sgt Pepper ? Did the Floyd steal any ideas from the Beatles? If so, what?

Ummagumma. Pink Floyd took inspiration from Sgt. Pepper . They stole the idea to make an album that's a fucking masterpiece. 

 

Why was there only one album released in 1966?

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Because every artist agreed the Beatles deserved to realease the one and only album for the year. 

Who inspired George Martin?

She Said She Said . This was the last song to be completed for Revolver , and between this date, and the beginning of recording of When I'm Sixty-Four , Paul died, as has been already documented.

 

Why did Ringo dislike the album With The Beatles ?

Because it was released in it's entirety in Canada and since Ringo hates Canadians, he hates the album.

What Beatle supposedly slept with Elvis?

All of them. All ten Beatles slept with Elvis that night. 

What was Elvis doing when he met the Beatles?

He went to the theatre to see the new Tom And Jerry back in 1945, and he saw 4 toddlers and a teenage James Brown.

Who played guitar on And Your Bird Can Sing ?

It was a little known session guitarist named Andrew Burtkinseng. The Beatles were so impressed by his skills, they rewrote the original song and renamed it after him. 

What was the original name of the building that is now known as Abbey Road Studios?

Geldoffein Scramden Recorderiehaus... not very catchy, I'm sure you'll agree. 

Why was the name changed?

Because when The Beatles recorded their second album (their first one was called The Beatles), they thought that Geldoffein Scramden Recorderiehaus sounded to much like Guys holding hands in recording house, and they didn't want people think that The Beatles were gay because back in the 60's, as Queen Elizabeth II took 75% of all royalties from homosexuals (this was reduced to 50% in 1970 and completely outlawed in 1975). So they threatened to blow up the studio if George Martin didn't change it's name, so he agreed to let them think of ideas, John thought Hell Valley, Paul thought EMI Studios, George thought Northern Studios, and Ringo thought I Want To Sing More Studios. George hated all of these ideas, so he invited Pete Best to a fake dinner party where he and John kidnapped him, beat him, drugged him, stripped him down to nothing (covering only his genitals with EMItape with everything else exposed) and threatened to gouge out "his motherf***ing viewing lenses" if he didn't come up with a good idea, so he said that they should name it after the street it's on, which he claimed was 64 Abbey Road , so they called it Abbey Road , although it was actually on 420 Trident Road (Pete said his Uncle Joe's address by mistake, mainly due to the fact that he was in the dark windowless basement at the time). And on that day, Abbey Road was born.

Why didn't The Beatles just ask Pete Best politely?

Because Pete had just recently said publicly that he didn't like Christmas Time (Is Here Again), thus the Beatles wanted revenge.

 

Why didn't Pete like Christmas Time (Is Here Again)?

Because despite the lyric: "Ain't been 'round since you know when", Pete did not know when.

 

What happened in Hamburg that made it such an important part of Beatles history?
