John had Indian food alongside his tea, notably vegetarian curry.

John himself claimed it tastes, in his words: not lousy

She's so dizzy, she can put on her vinyl copy of "Revolver " and not notice it revolving.

How dirty was Maggie May?

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

Quite the dirty person, indeed. It is well-known by Beatles fans that the song "Sexy Sadie " is written about him. In fact, George convinced John to change the name to Sadie because in his words: ...I told John to change his name from Mustard to Sadie because it's not insulting enough. Mustard is always mad that people compare him to a lady.

Who's wife did George Harrison had an affair with?

Yoko Ono. He messed up the guitar on While My Guitar Gently Weeps because he was so distracted by her presence in the studio.

 

Who ate the flaming pie after the man appeared on it, giving the band their name? And what did it taste like?

George rook an exploratory bite or three, but was unimpressed, feeling that the flaming pie didn't taste sufficiently biscuit-like.

Why did Paul rule out a George Harrison guitar solo to climax "Hey Jude "?

The guitar solo would have contradicted the piano E-Major chord at the end of the song.

The obvious answer is of course, Stuart Sutcliffe.

The correct answer would be the life insurance fee of Dan that he stole from Nancy a week after killing Dan in a showdown.

George, because he ran out of biscuits.

Which Beatle was known to have a fondness for baked beans?

Ringo, of course. He famously took a suitcase full of them to Rishikesh, much to Maureen's annoyance, who had to wear the same clothes for two weeks (it was her suitcase he put them in) and Mal Evans decorated his drum-kit with baked beans to welcome him back to the band after he'd left during sessions for The White Album .

 

What did Ringo learn to do whilst Sgt. Pepper was being recorded?

Gardening with all eight arms (his four natural arms and four made out of drum sticks). It inspired him to write a song about it later.

This is because, the band decided that Paul's idea of documenting a performance by them to a crowd of dogs was a much better idea than performing on the rooftop, which will never becoming iconic, somehow. The Queen of England herself was so impressed by the idea that she herself requested that half the canine audience be off the corgi breed, because corgis are adorable. In fact, the Led Zeppelin song "Black Dog" was inspired by the performance, after a Labrador got off his seat and sang lead alongside John and Paul during the sequence of "I've Got A Feeling ". 

Which guitar did George Harrison used in his 1971 concert for Bangladesh?

For a giggle, George and Ravi Shankar decided to swap instruments before the show. Ravi's borrowed Stratocaster (and wahwah pedal) fuelled a feedback-drenched electric raga that brought the crowd to an ecstatic ovation; George, meanwhile, couldn't get the unwieldy sitar to weep gently - or at all - and consequently flopped. For the remainder of his days, George would blame Paul for his embarrassment. 

What was the title of the song Martha wrote about Paul? Was it ever recorded?

It was called Paulie My Dear and goes a little something like this

Paulie, my dear

Though I spend my days barking at trees

I am hungry

Paulie, my love

Ple-ease feed me

Paulie, my dear

Fill my dish up, you silly man

I want a bone.

Also after that take me for a walk

But be creative, not down Penny Lane again

Silly man

Actually it was never recorded, but it is believed Martha did a live performance of the song in 1968 when she was spotted barking for two and a half minutes straight.

His favourite song was the one you hear between The End and Her Majesty , for obvious reasons. He was not a fan of Mean Mr Mustard , because it's about him.

 

What exactly did Paul mean when he sang about a girl who was 'just seventeen'?
