No police force, however strong they are armed, can cope with this:

So they all pretend Paul is still alive to justify their inactivity. Tsk, Tsk, poor Paul.

What famous play can be heard at the end of I Am The Walrus ?

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

Trick question: he didn't murder Paul. He just gave Paul a haircut.

Why did Billy Shears become a barber?

He just couldn't cut the mustard anywhere else.  He found his calling when Mean Mr. Mustard needed an urgent shave in the daytime.

Nobody answered Martha's question.  I don't know answer to this one.  I suggest visiting your local hospital and ask a pretty nurse who may have felt she was in it.  If you survive encounter, please let us know results.

 

Where did the Beatles get their fish and chips during the alternate I Feel Fine promo clip?

It was actually vegetarian fish and chips, which they bought for £15 at a specialty vegetarian restaurant called Don't Kill Me.

Why did Ringo eat an 8 track copy of The Beatles 1942 album Straight Outta Liverpool.

Silly Girl did, she said that the name of the play heard at the end of I Am The Walrus is:

You should really watch it, it's a great play about Paul Newman and Paul McCartney , PM thinks PN is going to murder him but at the end, he just gives him a haircut.

It gave him bad childhood memories. It includes audio of two year old Ringo and one year old Pete fighting over a toy drumkit.

What did two year old John and Paul (who was a few months old) contribute to the album?

Because a mean school-aged bully named Dicky Rowe took their toy guitars away and wouldn't give them back.

What us the title of the 1968 collaborative LP by Stuart Sutcliffe and Pete Best?

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

They named it this because if you replace ? with 0, ? with 1, and ? with  , you now have binary code that translates to whybeatleswhy which is in reference to them not knowing why they got fired from The Beatles in 1967.

Why did they get fired from The Beatles in 1967?

During the Sgt Pepper photoshoot, Stu sent a cardboard cutout in his place, and Pete didn't bother to turn up. 

When not producing, Sir George Martin was the frontman of his own rock band. What were they called and who were the other members?

It was called George and it had George Martin on piano, George Harrison on guitar and George Formby on banjo.

Why didn't they include George Michael?

They asked him, but he'd already joined a band with Michael McGear, Michael Nesmith, Michael Jackson and Mike Love. The band's name was Todd.

While they were on tour in the USSR, they left Ringo there for 2 weeks.

Why did they do this?

To have him search for Jeremy Hillary Boob, Ph.D, who had become lost while vacationing in Russia.

Once ejected from the Yellow Submarine after pushing the panic button, how was Ringo able to breathe underwater without the use of SCUBA gear?

Easy, contrary to popular belief, people can breathe underwater just fine.

Why does The Beatles 1968 album The Beatles and with Hey Jude instead of Good Night , which was scrapped from the album at the last minute.
