What Beatle invented the craze of putting hot sauce on chicken salad.

Pete Best. It was the real reason he was sacked.

Which fruit, often mistaken as a vegetable, is mentioned more than once on the album Sgt Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

No offense, but I think that's a bit dark for a question. Perhaps something else?

Dark Overlord said

Why did Pete Best marry John Lennon .  

John had written a song called "The Ballad of John & Pete", intending it to be the next Beatles single, and decided he needed his life to conform with his art, so a marriage to a "Pete" was necessary. But Pete Shotton turned him down, so he tried asking Peter Blake. Blake also said no, as did Peter Asher, Peter Tork of the Monkees, and Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits. John was considering asking Peter O'Toole, then found out that Pete Best wasn't busy, so John swallowed his pride and approached Best. To his surprise, Best had no hard feelings about the past, and agreed to the marriage in exchange for half of "...Ballad"'s songwriting royalties. The single eventually appeared on the charts for two weeks, peaking at #129 and earned Pete enough money for a deluxe hamburger at Wimpy's and a new pair of drumsticks. The marriage, however, wasn't to last - in a way, the '60s died the day their divorce was finalized, on 31 December, 1969. 

How did Jerusalem react when Jesus proclaimed "I'm more popular than the Beatles now"?

They were going to burn his records, but then they realised he didn't have any records.

On which Beatles song does Hank Marvin play lead guitar?

Ron Nasty said "I only said we were bigger than Tea-sus, and now it's all this." There was religious backlash from the Church of Tea-sus, which led to tea being legalized. 

 

Who is Julian Lennon's godfather and why was he chosen?

He thought the chorus of Please Please Me said "Please beat Pete up man or I'll beat you". 5 seconds later, The Beatles explained that it was "Please Please Me oh yeah like I please you" and he then re-friended them.

For the music video to The Beatles 1966 hit song You Gotta Love For Your Right To Sing, why did they use whipped cream found in a dumpster to make the pies that they threw at each other's faces.

Because the invitation specified it was BYOB ("Bring your own brown acid")

However, one Beatle did surreptitiously attend the concert in disguise as a performer. What Beatle? and who was the performer?

Isn't it obvious? Ringo went as his alter ego, Joe Cocker and sang With A Little Help From My Friends .

How was he found out?

Because George had written it

 

Ringo was famous for carving his own drumsticks. What common wooden household item did he use for raw material?

To start, here's the cover:

9e81747057a1b892c2ba8e41aeb16b3b.jpgImage Enlarger

Side A:

1. Autotune Is For Losers 4:37

John Lennon : Lead and Backing Vocals, Rhythm Guitar (1964 Gibson J-160E)

Eric Clapton: Lead Guitar (1956 Fender Stratocaster), Backing Vocals

Ringo Starr : Drums, Tambourine, Backing Vocals

Billy Preston: Piano

2. (I Can't Believe) Donald Trump Is Our President 3:22

John Lennon : Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar (1965 Epiphone ES-230TD Casino)

Eric Clapton: Lead Guitar (1956 Fender Stratocaster)

Klaus Voormann: Bass Guitar (1960 Fender Jazz Bass)

Side B:

1. F*** You Billy For Killing Paul 3:48

Eric Clapton: Lead Guitar (1956 Fender Stratocaster), Backing Vocals

Klaus Voormann: Bass Guitar (1960 Fender Jazz Bass), Backing Vocals

4. Just Like Good Old Times 12:42

Eric Clapton: Lead Guitar (1957 Gibson Les Paul Standard)

Klaus Voormann: Bass Guitar (1964 Rickenbacker 4001S)

Ringo Starr : Drums

Billy Preston: Fender Rhodes

The album expresses many of John's dislikes with the modern world, such as how people use autotune instead of actually sing, Donald Trump being president, and how he thinks it was wrong for us to react to 9/11 with violence and war instead of peace and love.

Why was Billy Shears never charged with murdering Paul McCartney ?
