He named it Rocky after Rocket J. Squirrel. 

And now for something completely different.Image Enlarger

 

The Beatles very nearly started a music festival. Why did these plans fall through?

Because after performing Run For Your Life live at Yankee Stadium, Beatles fans began being scared of John. Worse feedback than his "more popular than Buddha" comment, which he claimed was fake news.

What was the inspiration behind the Beatles' first original composition and #1 hit, Revolution 9

They were inspired by Rev. O'Lucian: The Reverend Thomas O'Lucian, an influential radical clergyman who was calling for all hippies, hepcats, freaks, hipsters, beatniks, beatcats, freakniks, hepsters, beatfreaks, freakcats, hipniks and beatsters to put aside their differences and occupy fish and chip shops until they could think of some demands and demand that these demands be met. Also, a large bottle of Gilbey's gin.

Who exactly was the "Chairman Meow" referenced in the song?

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

This gets confusing. I thought you and vonbontee were brothers, with you being the younger one and the lowercased lettered vb being the older brother, I didn't think that vonbontee and Von Bontee were the same person.

Better answer Ahhh Girl's question:

Paul was laughing because he was listening to his bass part to the song Bicycle Race, which he recorded the bass to while intoxicated.

What 3 Queen songs did Paul play bass on instead of John Deacon?

It was in Queen's Ep "Paul shave the Queens" . It was a 4 songs Ep though. 4th track being Paul instructing Queen's members on how should they play their own arrangements.

What color was the White Album cover?

Album. (though it had a tint of coffee stain...)

 

Was there a reason for Good Day Sunshine coming after She Said She Said ?

Because they had written I Want You (She's So Heavy) and Here Comes The Sun that they wanted to release a few years down the lin, and they wanted people to be prepared for that "heavy" sound to be followed by a sunny, happy, light song.

Who was the last Beatles manager? What is one famous legend that is still told about that manager?

Sammy Davis Jr. was the last Beatles manager. The story is often told of how his fake eyeball popped out and ended up in John's martini.

When Elvis met The Beatles, fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches were offered to each Beatle. Which one refused, and why?

All of them, because they thought it was 'banal' (but it grows on you a-hard-days-night-george-10)

During the 1970s, George was the star of a short lived buddy cop show which starred him and Ravi Shankar. What was the show called, and what was the plot of the first episode?

It was called 30 and 53, their ages at the time the show first aired and the first episode was called Donuts, it was about the 2 cops having a donut eating contest.

What was the 6th and final episode about?

The show was called Scouser Saint and the Bengali Bad Boy . It was a good cop, bad cop show. The first episode was about a woman who claimed her wedding ring was stolen but it had fallen in her rice pudding and she ate it. 

Ringo has claimed that he eats goat cheese because it has smaller molecules. What are some other tiny molecule foods that Ringo enjoys?

The 'nice and friendly traffic warden' kind of girl because, although they might have muscles like a military man, carrying you around on their back all day gets a bit exhausting at times, so every excuse to take a break and place you on the ground again is welcome!

When did Paul meet the mysterious man who witnessed the recording session of Fixing A Hole again and what did they do together?

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 met him on Tuesday, and the two of them shared a joint and perused the "Beatles Trivia - Even Easier!" thread, laughing with delight at the merriment therein.

 

Why did the "Eleanor Rigby "/"Yellow Submarine " single only sell 91 copies?

A better question is how did it sell 91 copies, Eleanor Rigby is the best selling single of all time, selling a massive 91 copies despite their only being 78 people on planet earth.

Who are The Beatles?
