He listens to it every day at noon, so earlier today at noon.

Why is Paul playing his 61' Hofner in the music video for Revolution instead of his Rickenbacker or his normal Hofner?

He never sausage behavior and refused to take parts in the photo shoot. It was rare for him to act that way, but he had a bone to pick with the Beatles, thinking it was a missteak to waste all of his hard work. The band hit a tender spot with him and did not spare ribbing him unmercifully. He did not like getting his chops grilled, so he left to meat with friends who helped him through the wurst day he'd had in years. 

 

While The Beatles crossed Abbey Road , where was Pete Best?

The Beatles actually asked if he would like to be on the cover and Pete graciously agreed. Unfortunately, they cut him out of the famous photo at the last second. The poor man just can't seem to catch a break.

They remembered they left the iron on and a pie in the oven.

What was Sinatra's reaction to the Beatles writing a song about his sister-in-law?

He was fine with it but his sister in law Moon Unit Zappa, who's BCFU Frank was secretly married to Frank Sinatra was not so happy about the 1968 song, which is called My mother is my grandma and my sister and my aunt/My father is my brother and my cousin and my uncle, a 28 minute jazz fusion influenced freestyle instrumental with no bass part and this instrumentation:

Paul McCartney : Lead Vocals (the only two articulate vocal parts are "my mother is my grandma and my sister and my aunt", said at the beginning and "my father is my brother and my cousin and my uncle", said towards the end, right before he passes out on the floor), Hammond Organ, Sound Effects (drinking 13 40 oz through a sports drinking hat, belching, flatulence, throwing up, pissing his pants, yelling, kicking and screaming, falling on the floor, having a seizure)

John Lennon : Acoustic Guitar (walks out after 15 minutes, stomping loudly and punching the wall on his way out)

George Harrison : Lead Guitar (1961 Fender Stratocaster), sleeping sound effects (actually him sleeping), eating popcorn and laughing during Paul's seizure

Ringo Starr : Drums (stopped once Paul started having a seizure)

Pete Best: Tambourine

Unknown group of 7 people from local gay bar: Jumping up and down

The reason she hated the song was because it was too long, as well as the fact that it fully displayed Frank Zappa's incestuous desires. Also, the song was performed in one take and the song stopped after Paul became unconscious and he had to go to the hospital where he spent 4 days in a coma.

What brand of popcorn did George eat while laughing at Paul's seizure?

George financed the film The Life Of Brian by robbing a bank.

How did they get John Deacon to play bass on Beatles With Wings: The Musical?

For this I'm gonna answer @Dark Overlord's 4 questions.

1. Pressure and drugs.

2. They were being played when this one disk jockey slipped on the floor and miraculously slipped the two tapes in the tape player. The DJ then passed out after getting hit in the head after slipping, so there was no one to censor it. Meanwhile, nationwide the greatly uncensored songs Say Yes To Drug Dealers (Take Anything You Get From A Stranger) and All You Will Hear On The Radio Is Beeps (F*** S*** A** C*** N***** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F***) sweeps the US and U.K. and the population of each country is trying desperately hard to escape the 17-minute, swear-filled, uncensored songs. Even Paul himself was shocked upon hearing this, so he grabbed a ton of pot, called his wife, and went to Japan, where he eventually got arrested for "attempted drug smuggling", but they soon let him go upon realizing the one DJ's mistake.

3. It was a double-album, or maybe 2 of each track are actually just 1 track, making the 14 tracks 7.

4. See number 1.

Why did they even write the songs Say Yes To Drug Dealers (Take Anything You Get From A Stranger) and All You Will Hear On The Radio Is Beeps (F*** S*** A** C*** N***** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F*** F***)?!?

They didn't write those songs actually. They just recorded them fom scratch, on the fly.

In the song "She loves you" who is She and who is You?

The she is actually a he, Brian Epstien, who was in love with Ringo Starr but Ringo was afraid to confess his love back to Brian because back in those days, something as simple as kissing another man could get you locked up in a mental institution, so he asked John and Timothy Leary to write a song about this, so The Beatles came up with a 12 bar blues based 17 minute disco song with a reversed guitar solo played by Fred Durst who was the guitarist in the racist Elvis parody band, White Biscuit, an Elvis tribute band who sings such songs as, such as Slavery Hotel, C**n Dog, Melonhouse Rock, All Beat Up, and of course the fan favorite Don't Be Black.

Why did they let such a racist guitarist play on the song?

A question, @Dark Overlord?

Edit: never mind. It's already been edited. 

 

Because even if you're racist, you can still likely play music very well. 

 

Did Ringo ever take a holiday to Latvia? If so, why?

He did it back in 1968 so he didn't have to play drums on Back In The USSR .

In the 1977 animated TV special Beatles With Wings: The Musical, who is the drug dealer who is singing Say Yes To Drug Dealers (Take Anything You Get From A Stranger) and what is the instrumentation of that song, a sample instrumentation will be provided in the spoilers so you know the format.

Paul McCartney : Lead Vocals, Piano

John Lennon : Acoustic Guitar

George Harrison : Bass Guitar

Ringo Starr : Drums, Tambourine

The singer was Pete Best and the instrumentation was like this:
Paul McCartney : Electro-Acoustic tambourine
John Lennon : Vocal Guitar
George Harrison : Bass piano detuned two and a half step down
Ringo Starr : EVP's tape loops all played backwards and in G flat minor

How long took them to record Sgt. Peppers lonely hearts club band, and why?

An unprecedented twenty-three minutes -- a length of time they had not ever taken to record an album before as their first album took five minutes to record, and the second one took even less.

Why was Paul so fond of scrambled eggs when everyone else was sick of them?
