Ummm... 910 also has 3 digits from 1980, @WeepingAtlasCedars!

On topic: George asked every single person he knew to contribute a part to it, and then got george-martin to put it all together.

When did George and Ringo have their famous quarrel, and over what?

Paul wanted to name his bass Rocky #2, but George was completely against it. There was only room for one Rocky in the band.

 

Where did George go when he left the band during the Let It Be sessions?

To his audition with the Kinks. They were short a member after the latest Davies brothers fight.

 

Who was suggested as George's replacement? Why?

Ringo was suggested, because GO forgot about him when answering the question! he already had experience!

 

What did Billy Preston think of this?

Billy didn't mind as long as it was SOMEBODY because he had both hands full and both feet busy

All the Beatles except Paul loved to watch American television while on tour. What was their favourite show, and why did Paul refuse to watch?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

It was the classic TV show Killing Animals, which ran an impressive 12 seasons from it's first episode in 1951 to it's last in 1967, here's a screenshot from the 1957 episode Behead A Pig Before He Beheads You.

Paul McCartney hates the show because he loves animals and the thought of killing and eating them makes him sick, this show is why he is a vegetarian.

Why did Paul McCartney stop having children after his wife Jane Asher gave birth to his only child, his son Paul "Ron Nasty" McCartney Jr. on January 8th, 1967.

Trick question. Paul McCartney never had any children, because he's a man.

 

Why does Paul McCartney always scratch his eye/nose with his middle finger?

Erm, George was so shocked with his discovery about 810/1980 that he jumped to conclusions and never took that into account. ahdn_paul_01

An answer to Necko's question:

The nail on that particular finger was the best for scratching.

'Oh Yoko', a lonely ballad imploring her not to steal his biscuits. It didn't work. John later borrowed the title for one of his own compositions.

Which Beatles song featured Jimi Hendrix as a guest guitarist?

To celebrate the anniversary of the filming of Help ! the Beatles thought about coming back together to produce the movie Just Help , For God 's Sake! A special guest had been Elmo who should play the role of the red-painted victim to save the money for paint. However, he behaved horribly disrespectfully during filming. Believe it or not, he was constantly high and giggled all the time! No wonder, the Beatles immediately fired him and also blew up the whole project. This is really a pity because rumours were that the title track of the movie was intended to be Carnival Of Light .

Why did Ringo consider himself a shocker?

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

He liked to wear shock thingies on his hand whenever he gave someone a handshake.

In the music video for Fixing A Hole , why does Joe throw potato salad directly into Ned Flanders eyes?

By Ned Flanders, I assume you mean John. It was in fact Joe who inspired John to later write the part about Sir Walter Raleigh in I'm So Tired by throwing potatoes in his eyes. Following the incident, John had a rather on and off aversion to potatoes, and wrote that Raleigh, who supposedly brought them back to England during Elizabeth I's reign was a 'stupid get' for doing so.

Had Sir Walter not brought back potatoes, what alternatively would Joe have thrown at John?

Cause he couldn't play the guitar just like a ringing a bell
