Go ahead and ask one, you're good at this! apple01

(My "trousers" answer was an unofficial one, hence the spoiler; I generally prefer to allow at least two contributions between my own replies)

OK, what was George doing while the rest of the band (+ Mal Evans) were laying down the final E-major chord for A Day In The Life ?

He was sent on a Starbucks run.  Those boys need their coffee.

This is wrong of course but it's also worth nothing that Starbucks didn't exist until 1971

Why did John write Don't Let Me Down ?

He had a dream that Yoko was dangling him over a pit of lava filled with alligators and ex-wives.

Who did George write Something for?

We all know the answer is Pete Best

But, in all seriousness, the answer is in the question listed.

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

@CakeMaestor there is no seriousness in this thread. a-hard-days-night-john-6 This game involves us asking easy and/or facetious questions and giving them wrong and/or facetious answers. Would you like to ask a question?

If you look at the Lennon family tree you can find it to be Zac Starkey.

Which Beatle starred in the 1920 film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde?

George. As the youngest Beatle, he was the only one alive at the time.

What is the name of George’s sister?

George's sister is called Maggie Mae . She had a somewhat dubious reputation in her youth, but the full facts have (fortunately for her) been lost to history.

 

What were the first two lines to 'I Saw Her Standing There ' as written by Paul, before John made him change them?

The correct answer to that question is: I Saw Her Standing There , Making Love With A Bear 

In all seriousness, the correct answer is (Well she was just seventeen, and she was a beauty queen), but not that it matters.

What song is Sir Paul McCartney referencing when he sings the verse "And Ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-ge-georgia's on my mind" in the song "Back In The USSR "

Paul is referencing this 1926 Louis Armstrong Hot Five number, which Jim Mac's jazz band used to perform (with Aunt Gin taking the vocal:)

Aside from Armstrong, who had the biggest influence on Beatles music?

As far as the Fab Four are concerned, more than Bob Dylan, Bing Crosby and Buddy Holly, their biggest influence (far outshining the figures mentioned earlier) is of course Oasis.

We even have an interview with John Lennon in 1981 stating: ...Oasis are great, screw Dylan."

What’s new with Mary Jane? She’s become a mother and taken up a career as a motivational speaker. She also bought a pair of new shoes.

What is Rita’s last name?
