George Martin. He could also rub his belly and pat his head at the same time. He could do nearly everything. 

 

What was the one thing that George Martin couldn't do?

Playing at full speed would've required 30 seconds worth of recording tape, and there was only 15 seconds worth of blank tape available in the facility; all remaining 3500 hours worth of tape was filled with Ringo drum solos and Mal Evans practicing his organ part for "You Won't See Me ."

What are the lyrics to "Rocky Raccoon Roll Music"?

According to Geoff Emmerick's Here There And Everywhere , Ringo refused to have it in the movie because Quarryman threatened to sue Apple if they put it in there.

Why did Paul refuse to play bass on any tracks recorded indoors during January 1969 and what did he play instead.

Because Ringo was tired of playing drums and quit the band, so Pete Best (their former bassist) returned and Paul moved to tamborine. This is why there are no drums on any tracks from that month, just Paul in the corner hitting a tamborine.

 

Why did the other 3 allow Ringo's girlfriend Okoy to come on the Magical Mystery Tour ?

There were three possible endings filmed:

1. Everyone runs away stage left, out of frame, where they trip over the film's sprocket holes and fall off the film entirely, into the abyss, never to be seen again.

2. John says "Let's find out who Clang really is!" and rips off his mask, revealing the face of Allen Klein, who proclaims "Yes, it was me all along. And I would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for you meddling kids!"

3. The cameraman, drunk throughout the entire shoot, finally passes out, falling down and knocking the camera on its side with him, still rolling film. The rest of the cast and crew all shrug and walk off while the grips strike the set. All of this is filmed at a 90 - degree angle by the fallen camera and is included in the final cut. The film is acclaimed as an avant-garde masterpiece and wins the Palme D'Or at Cannes.

What sequence in "A Hard Day's Night " was filmed in colour?

The animated scene where they're at Mal Evans wake.

Why did they shoot the live action scenes in black and white despite it being released in 1994?

In Mal Evans basement on 24/12/1969, he encouraged the band to create Since I've Been Loving You.

Why did Paul agree to play bass on Marvin Gaye's Let's Get It On for free?

After having learnt the alphabet in all together now, they were so proud that they wanted to show their new gained knowledge to the public. Therefore, first the album starting with A and then the album starting with L.

How come the Beatles only learned the alphabet by the time they recorded All together now?

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

Coz Think For Yourself certainly didn't teach them the alphabet!

 

There was, however, a song off Rubber Soul that taught everyone a valuable life lesson. Which song, and what was the lesson?
