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

Trick queation: it wasn't George, it was the big star who played a mean guitar, Eric Clapton. His guitar said something mean to George's and made it gently weep. Eric apologised on behalf of his instrument, but it was many years before George's guitar forgave Eric's and would play with it again. And

 Answer Zig's question

Where did Ed Sullivan first witness Beatlemania first hand?

On "The Ed Sullivan Show". He was taking a two-week vacation to Vegas when they were booked, having asked his staff to give a slot to "that Buddy Holly kid" before he departed, knowing only that this rock-n-roll stuff was popular with the young kids and unaware that Holly had died in a plane crash years earlier. He arrived back at the studio in February 1964, moments before airtime, was given a clipboard with the name of the replacement band, and the rest is history!

Why were "Beatle boots" named as such?

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.

They originally had hidden tape players under the soles, which played Beatles songs when you walked in them. However, later productions removed this feature, after they caused a ruckus at libraries, funerals and public lavatories.

Why are Laurel and Hardy on the Sgt Pepper 's cover?

Mr. Procrastinator, who showed up with a blank piece of paper with "THE BEATLES" hastily written on it that morning. That was all the work he had done, having put it off for 3 weeks.

What other Beatles-related items did Mr. Procrastinator design?

It was an illegitimate joke of a reserved unasked tho answered query.  

 

From the beginning of 1957 thru to 1970 how many fingers did George Harrison have to play guitars solos with?

The music was soothing and they all started grooving. Then, the man in the back said everyone attack and it turned into a ballroom blitz.

How did the Blue Meanie react to this?

He ran for cover, tripped over George's Old Brown Shoe , fell into conveniently-placed Hole planted by Jeremy, came out in the Sea Of Time , and the clocks went back so far he ceased to exist. Good way to get rid of some blue-meanieblue-meanieblue-meanies. 

 

Which Beatle is mentioned in 'Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast'? What did he eat in the song?
