Alan Williams kidnapped them and forced them to work long hours peddling mighty rock to the peasants so that they wouldn't fritter away all their time in the red-light district... Ahem. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

 

If Not For You ... what?

If not for Bob Dylan, George Harrison wouldn't have covered his song.

 

What did John Lennon leave Allan Williams in his will?

His 10% commission for the 1961 Top Ten Club residency.

Why did John punch Bob Wooler at Paul's 21st birthday party?

He sang out of tune. Turns out John didn’t walk out on him.

 

Paul recently added his name to a petition for what?

Changing Beatles songwriting credits to McCartney / Lennon.

No one, he barged in to the Apple headquarters with a gun and demanded to play piano for the group.

What type of gun did he use?

Maybe you should try posting more.

That is a trick question; he used a block of wood he had carved into the shape of a gun.

 

What was the reason he used a wooden 'gun' instead of a real gun?

He misheard the lyric in 'The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill ' and thought it said "He went out tiger hunting with his elephant hand gun". The wooden gun was in the shape of an elephant.

 

What did John during the recording sessions of 'Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da' to create such a memorable opening?

You've jumbled your facts. It was a Bruvver who joined a Werble to form the run-of-the-mill group Stationary Boysenberries. 

What inspired the name of The Quarry Men?

A gigantic hole in the earth.

 

Why did Paul get Barry Miles to write the authorized biography Many Years From Now rather than writing an autobiography by himself?

Barry didn't write it either. It came to Paul in a dream and he just forwarded it to the first writer in his contact list that happened to be Barry.

What was their reaction to the MBE announcement?
