Apple haven't gotten around to DVD's yet, they are waiting for them to really take off before gambling on such a format. Plus Yoko thinks we should imagine watching the film as it will be more beautiful a memory but Apple want to charge each person £15.99 every time they do it and so have asked their lawyers how to go about it.

He was crying for joy over Ringo's fills on the A-side, Hello Goodbye

 

Where did Paul get the drill bit to fix the hole in Fixing A Hole ?

He would've liked to, but he simply didn't have enough pens.

 

When was the last time that Paul teased us about releasing Carnival Of Light ? Why was this especially insulting to the fans?

Sing A Song Of Sixpence.  He was inspired by both Paul's singing and the Hostess Fruit Pie he was eating.

What were the Beatles and Brian Epstein going to do if they failed the EMI audition too?

Try again, until one label or the other got so sick of their persistence that they signed them just to get the lads out of their hair.

 

What was the A-side of 'The Inner Light '?

Probably the most significant song the Beatles ever made: "Hello, All You Need Is Eleanor, The Yellow Strawberry Lady On Walrus Lane", released at teatime on  the 32nd of Notrealmonthember 1858 in the West Indies.

Which famous sitarist did George become close friends with?

He has 4 fathers and mothers, those 4 mothers are named Nature, Mary, Madonna, and Mumia.

What Beatle played Organ on James Brown's song Get Up (I Feel Like Being A) Sex Machine? (if you want a hint, Paul plays bass (Rickenbacker) and harmonica, Ringo plays drums, Keith Richards plays the first guitar solo (Telecaster), Eric Clapton plays the second (Blackie strat), and George plays the third (Rocky strat), while Herbie Hancock plays piano, Mark Hamill plays the trumpet, and Freddie Mercury, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, and Leonard Nimoy all sing backing vocals)

George Martin. He was far too polite to ask how on earth he ended up there so played a funky solo before politely leaving saying he was going for a cup of tea and a scone.

Which concept was originally planned for what became the 'Rubber Soul ' album?

Originally, five copies of Rubber Soul were to contain a special "golden ticket", recipients of which would win a guided tour of the EMI Studios and Vinyl Factory to watch the Beatles record. The plan was ultimately decided against, due to fears that Decca Records executives would try to bribe the winners into revealing the Beatles recording secrets to the Rolling Stones; and also because John refused to don overalls and dye his hair green and paint his skin orange. 

Who wasn't a Beatle?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Soul music played with rubber band instruments, which they decided not to do this after seeing this sign, as they noticed that it showed John's J-160E and George's Hootenanny, both made of cardboard with rubber strings, that they took in their backyard to promote their newest album, but Elvis Presley decided that the idea was evil because it was encouraging children to make and play their own instruments, whereas in reality it is illegal to play any electric guitar (cardboard and rubber band or not) without an electric guitar license, which side B's opening track F*** Em (Day Stripper) used, so he took the title of that track, tweaked it, and made this sign to piss on the album, although both John and George had the license (although due to listening to music with electric guitar in it while driving (Green Onions), George was banned from using Gibson Les Pauls and Fender Telecasters until August 1st, 1968).

Which Beatle's quarter brother (quarter brother means your stepparent's previous spouse's children that he/she had without your stepparent) made it illegal to drive while listening to electric guitar music and why.

That was Geoff Horacedaughter.  The electric guitar was playing havoc with Birmingham's traffic system periodically changing some lights to blue.  Or was that a dime brother?
