It was too good. It reached #0 on the pop charts, leaving all others in the dust.

Name an aspect of Beatles music that inspired one or more other musicians.

The name John. Many musicians are named John.

Because she told me to look around, round, round, round, round, round, round, round, round, round...

Who was taller, Ringo Starr or Mal Evans?

Mal. In fact, the full title to Ringo's first self penned song was Don't Pass Me By (I'm Down Here).a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Why has John got his hands in his pockets on the Abbey Road album cover?

Because PAUL IS DEAD. And, um, he put his hands in his pockets as a signal to the fans that PAUL WAS DEAD. And to symbolize, erm, the circle of life.  Yeah. Something like that.

What color was Paul's carnation?

Hazel, to match his eyes.

By now we all know that George's friends didn't get lost in a fog in L.A.. That was just a cover story that George made up. What was the real reason his friends didn't make it to the house on Blue Jay Way ?

They were snatched up by Charlie Manson and his lot. blue-meanie George mounted a Daring Rescue, got them out, brought them back to the house on Blue Jay Way , and finished the song -- then went to bed. As should I. ahdn_george_05

Who ate Ringo's whole and why?

Paul. He was green beacuse Ringo got all the attention as the worst drummer in the world. And being Paul so competitive he also wanted to be the worst in everything. So he ate poor old Ringo and donated it to the Natinoal Trust.

What did the National Trust do with poor old Ringo ate and donated by Paul?

Made a soap impression of him in remembrance. Of course, it dissolved in the moisture from the air before too long, so it wasn't a terribly lasting memorial, but at least they tried.

Did the soap impression need a fix 'cause it was going down? If so, when, how, where, and when?

The soap impression indeed went down, down, down the drain, sucked by the collective water pressure of millions of Americans flushing at 9:01pm EST on Feb. 9, 1964.

They sure as heck did't pass the Decca audition, because 4 piece guitar bands were going out of style. 

What didn't go out of style?

Hiding her from paparazzi. Obviously it didn't work, because one Linda Eastman inveigled her way in, then went back in time to inveigled her way into Paul's past and became his wife + mother of his child. Or was it the other way round?

Giles Martin, in his first professional work. As he walked up the control room steps, his father was heard to proudly announce, "Here comes the son!", inspiring George to reject his original title, "Here Comes The Fudge". 

 

Why did Ringo insist that "Yesterday " be credited Lennon/McCartney/Starkey?

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions, Marvin Gaye. PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

Ringo put the dream into Paul's head.

What Beatles song was inspired partly by a cornflakes jingle?

'Everybody's Got A Bowl Of Cornflakes Except Me And My Monkey'

Which two seasonings inspired Paul to think of the ficticious name Sgt. Pepper ?
