The Ballad Of John And Yoko 's Best Friends, nhoJ And okoY, written by nonneL nhoJ and YentraCcM luaP (commonly misattributed to John Lennon and Paul McCartney , who were friends with nhoJ and luaP whenever they looked in the mirror.) The song did not come to light because there was too much of a hassle of trying to find a mirror for them. 

Which Beatle was the first to get rid of his Sgt Pepper era moustache?

Faul. When he ditched his mustache, the rest of his face went with it, and he ended up with a split lip. To cover it, he grew a full beard. 

Ringo commemorated his accident in Don't Pass Me By : 'You were in a car crash, and you lost your hair.' 

 

Which Beatle was the first to get a Fender Stratocaster, and how did a/he acquire it?

He was the photographer for the famous Abbey Road album cover photograph - the one with Iaint Maximillions dressed in white parked on the side of the road, holding the sign reading "Paul would've been 28 IF he'd lived, but really he'd only be 27, but some Hindus add a year to their age to allow for time spent in utero, but they don't really, and anyways this sign actually says 281 F, so never mind."

Time out.

vonbontee said

Klauset Vürrminn

Literally laughed out loud.

Time in.

What was Klauset Vürrminn's idea for the cover of the Revlover album?  

Klauset was given the album title with the same misspelling. Most unfortunately, he designed a cover that told a story about a guy who loved muscle cars so much, he...well...let's just say that a certain violation of a tailpipe inevitably led to a trip to the burn ward. It remains Klauset's most awkward memory. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

Brian Upstream became the Beatles manager from 1961 until he dyed in 1967. He also managed other Mersey Feet acts such as Ceiling Back, Cherry and the Case Bakers, and Milly K. Claimer and The Fat Oak Cars. 

Why did Paul receive a knighthood?

Just because they won't be watching, doesn't mean they can't hear... ahdn_paul_01

It's the full term for being part of the Sexi Exis.  The Beatles wanted to be Sexi Exis too, so that @WeepingAtlasCedars could make a thread on them years later, but then they realised they were not directly German, and that the entire forum would be dedicated to them anyways. 

What was John doing on David Bowie's song Fame, which he co-wrote ?

Some digestive biscuits. If Yoko tried to steal them, he would be able to defend himself with biting.

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's
