The idea came from Lord Krishna Himself, the deity, who visited the boys while they were experiencing a mutual "trip" on LSD-impregnated apple biscuits. Krishna later sued George over "My Sweet Lord ", ostensibly for copyright infringement; but actually because He considered it an invasion of privacy. 

Wedding bells for Paul and Jane Asher??

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

You ain't nothing but a hound dog

According to the song Fixing A Hole , Paul stated that he was painting his room in a colorful way. In a 1982 interview, how many colors did Paul say he used when he was painting that room? Name the colors. Who conducted that interview?

Paul said "I used 8 colors, enough to fill the full ROYGBIV," according to his interview with Weird Al Yankovic.

In a similar vein, what "weight" did Paul have to carry a long time?

Why yes that is a picture of Paul dabbing. Deal with it.

Paul had to carry the oh-so-heavy Yoko, which was dreadful. Not to mention that Yoko insisted on staying in a paper bag. "That's Bagism," she said.

Who did Paul meet in the USSR?

Why did John acquiesce to allowing George to handle the guitar solos?

Ragdolls to repair. You see, the premise of the song was Paul using his sewing machine to make new outfits for or repair ragdolls, a very well known pastime of his when he wasn't recording or touring with the lads. Of course, this drove Frankie Valli Ragdoll Repairs out of buisness, who in revenge, instigated:

Inspired by Sentimental Journey and Beaucoups of Blues, Pete Best decided to record an album of his own dedicated to genre standards in 1971. What was the name of this album and what genre was it?

Il meglio dell'ovest, or The Best of the West, which encompassed his own unique renditions of all of the most epic spaghetti-Western songs ever. Of course, in 1971 the genre was a fairly recent development, hardly seen as the classic one it is today, and his record saw pitiful sales. pete-best

Why did he choose that genre?

It didn't have anything to do with Ringo's fondness for the cowboy Ringo, did it?

The idea was an Apple Music marketing scheme: They'd planned to advertise Pete's album, in conjunction with George's latest Eastern-Western musical collaboration, using the tagline, "COWBOYS AND INDIANS!!" 

Why did GM not string-arrange "She's Leaving Home "?

Because he was the "appointment she made", he was the man in the motortrade. When he found out paul was writing a song about a girl who was going to leave her parents, he immediately got going and as he knew where she was going to go, he went to wait for her to return her home. Ah, good ol' George! george-martinheart

What was John's famous contribution to Paul's "Getting butter" ?
