It was the theme song to a daytime soap opera so the song was about keeping viewers wondering who would sleep with who, who would get a job, who would get fired, who would get an inheritance from a long lost relative, etc.

Who was the ghost writer for the George Harrison column in the Express? How did the first story go over with George?

Derek Taylor. George appreciated Derek's assistance, but he later admitted that 'The nicest thing is to open the newspapers and not find yourself in them.' 

 

What colour was George's first Fender Stratocaster?

The colour of George's first (and last) stratocaster rollercoaster was yellow and greenish.

After Michael Jackson bought the Lennon/McCartney catalogue, George thought he would seek revenge on their behalf several years later by stealing his turtle train rollercoaster thingy from his Neverland Ranch and have it placed in Friar Park.

How did Michael Jackson get the turtle train rollercoaster back from George?

Michael just asked it to make its own decision whether it would rather live with Michael at the Ranch, or with George at Friar Park. The rollercoaster answered "I want to go back to the ranch with you, Michael" and George simply nodded, and accepted the coaster's decision, wiping away a single tear as he made his way back to England. 

 

Why were many thousands of copies of "Yesterday And Today" returned from record retailers to the manufacturers at Capitol Records?

Yesterday was misprinted as "Yeasterday." The guy who was in charge of the American Hard Day's Night got his ass handed to him when he misprinted I'll Cry Instead as "I Cry Instead" and he tried recalling all the Yeasterday copies before his boss noticed and he got fired. 

 

What edited-down song on the Anthology albums was controversial for it's editing-down? In what way was it altered and why was this controversial?

Dig It was edited down even further than the version on Let It Be . They edited it down from 50 seconds to .5 seconds. It was so short that they didn't even give it its own track, they just tacked it to the end of Get Back . This upset Beatles fans, because they were hoping for an extended version of Dig It on Anthology.

Who's idea was it to edit down Dig It even more?

I wasn't an intentional idea. It was an unfortunate accident involving newly hired tape operator Wilfred "Shaky" Donaldson and a pair of dull splicing shears.

Where was the worst touring experience The Beatles went through and what was the reason for it being so bad?

In Tokyo, Japan, 1966: nobody cheered or screamed. Not a one. The Beatles, for the first time since 1963, could actually hear themselves,

and they sounded like crapa-hard-days-night-ringo-13

 

 

Why didn't George want to be bothered?

He wanted to cry over the turtle train rollercoaster he had to give back in private.

Why were George and Ringo not present at the recording of The Ballad Of John And Yoko ?

As a child, John was kidnapped by a Cranberry Meanie and taken to a remote island. The Cranberry Meanie left him there...wait for it...

Who was the only Beatle who wanted to tour again after 1966 and why?

Yes, Billy Preston and the Fifth Beatles toured Siberia... they never made it back, though. 🙁 

 

Which Beatle called Muse's Chris Wolstenholme one of the best bassists? Hint

Some guy named "Page"

Who is "Page" and what was/is his claim to being a Beatle, or at least a Fifth Beatle?

Ahh, Page, you mean Slowhand Keith "Page" Richards, who played lead guitar on You Never Give Me Your Money and While My Guitar Gently Weeps (as well as sitar on Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown), despite many believing it was either Ringo Starr or William Shatner) while naked with a book covering his special areas.

Which 1957 Elvis Presley half studio/half live album did George Harrison use Buddy Holly's stolen 1956 tobacco sunburst Fender Stratocaster on.

Hint: it contains the songs Hound Dog, Viva Las Vegas, Suspicious Minds, Everyday, Rock Around The Clock, Walk Don't Run, Nowhere Man , and All Things Must Pass , as well as 17 live tracks, including a live rendition of Wipeout and a 25 minute live version of Jailhouse Rock with a 19 minute long instrumental section starting after the 3rd verse

 That would be Elvis Ain't No Communist, Daddy-O!  Elvis used Bo Diddley's backing musicians on the studio tracks, but due to the strict Jim Crow laws existing in the South at the time, Bo's piano player Otis Spann wasn't permitted to touch the white keys on the studio piano; Elvis wound up handling those himself. 

 

What horrible thing did George do to his guitar to make it gently weep?
