Because Georgia was very pretty and had a good wit!

 

What was Ringo's favourite joke?

She's the girl he sings to in Eight Days A Week : 'Love you every day, girl, always on my mind.' 

 

How many days a week are enough to show he cares?

I thought Von Bontee said 

Why did the Beatles say NO to drugs? 

So I answered

Because  NO backwards is ON, and they'd been turned ONa-hard-days-night-george-4

It was Paul's private barber Jim Shears Campbell. Mr Campbell had a beautiful, very talented son called William Shears Campbell who happened to look exactly like Paul, he has even been a friend of John's too. Unfortunately, little William had had a row with John and so John chose Paul to join the Beatles instead of William. Jim S.C., ambitious as he was, promised himself to get his son into the Beatles anyway. So he worked himself to the top until he became Paul's barber. Now there was only one more thing to do, he had to ''accidentally'' hurt Paul's face so that he wouldn't look as handsome as before anymore and William, with his Paulish face, would replace him. To ensure, William would look every inch like Paul, he took photographs of Paul whenever he shaved him and compared them to his son. To not act suspiciously he took a photograph of every customer and told Paul it was a habit of his. Then one night barber Jim executed his plan and 'UUps!' Paul had a cut on his upper lip. But as we all know Paul stayed in the Beatles regardless and so all poor Jim and William could do to make sure their dream will live on was starting a conspiracy...

What was the inspiration for the blue meanies?

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

An ordinary deck of cards! "Hearts" and "clubs" are mentioned in two titles, "diamonds" in another, and a spade is what you use to "fix a hole" by filling it in. 

Also, a lot of drugs. 

 

What instrument(s) do(es) each Beatle play on Abbey Road 's title cut?

Paul is giving them a demonstration of how to fix a hole.

Ah yes the Magical Mystery bus driver, he had a lot more to do with 1968 than you think. In February 1968, he successfully convinced Paul to release Lady Madonna and Hey Bulldog as a double A side, then when he noticed that Paul was more interested into his Hofner and Rickenbacker basses than him (this bus coach is gay), he decided to take him on a vacation to Rikikesh, where he was secretly planning on being romantic with him. Unfortunately, he asked the other Beatles if they wanted to join him, as well as Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, George Martin, Brian Wilson, and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and their families, who all said yes, except for Noel Redding, Bill Wyman, Charlie Watts, and Mick Jagger, it sure was a good thing that he still had his Magical Mystery Bus. On the last day, Paul told him that although he likes him as a friend and that he reminds him of Brian Epstein, he is straight and then proceeded to show him a talking black and white Super 8mm film he regularly carries with him on long trips of him having sex with Lizzie Bravo after she recorded her backing vocals for Across The Universe , he claims he did Gayleen Pease after that (the deal being that if they recorded the backing vocals, they would have sex with him), but the film ran out halfway through Lizzie. This pissed off the bus driver because this meant that Paul didn't want to be with him, so he got some passive aggressive revenge. First, he sanded off the finish off of John and George's Casinos, John's J-160E, and Paul's Rickenbacker (he tried to do this with George's Strat, but George beat him up before he could). Then, he broke Ringo's wrist on his way to the recording studio to record Back In The USSR , but since none of the other Beatles believed his story so he walked out until his wrist healed. After that, he stole both Paul's Rickenbacker and Hofner basses and hid them on the roof, inserting shock collars on them so that if Paul tries to take either of them off the roof, the pickups will explode and light both basses on fire, forcing Paul to use his original Hofner on the video for Revolution , as well as making him use his Jazz Bass for the rest of the songs on the album. He later did added internal shock collars to his other basses and electric guitars as well, forcing Paul to stick to piano and acoustic guitar during January 1969 until one day he found out about all of this and decided to play on the roof, recording Get Back , Don't Let Me Down , I Want You (She's So Heavy), Dig A Pony , I've Got A Feeling , One After 909 , and Get Back (Reprise) live on the roof on January 30th as a while band, this caused the shock collars to be disabled and the Magical Mystery bus driver decided to blow his brains out the following day.

Why did they have a bunch of mental hospital patients record backing vocals for I Am The Walrus instead of The Beatles themselves.

Trick question. The Beatles WERE mental hospital patients.

What specific mental disturbances did each Beatle suffer from?

The following people thank vonbontee for this post:

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 all had specific phobias. John had a fear of Paul being exposed as William Shears Campbell, Paul had a fear of being exposed as WSC, George had a fear of biscuit snatchers and Ringo had a fear of his nose shrinking. 

Where were The Beatles going when they were photographed crossing the road?

The others said that he lost his keys in the Royal Albert Hall. He searched each and every of the 4000 holes, only to find that Paul was hidden Ringo's keys in his pocket.

 

Haven't done this in a while:

Sgt Pepper had a day off, so he didn't teach any bands to play.

On the programme The Songs Of Lennon And McCartney, who were the guests and which Beatles songs did each perform?

George and Ringo were the guests, and they helped Lennon and McCartney play their latest single.

What was their latest single?

Because they didn't want us to see that they were in a car crash and they lost their teeth.
How did they get the sound at the beginning of "I feel fine"?
