1 + 1 + 1 = John + Paul + George. Or Jo Page as they were collectively known before they met Stu (after which they adopted Jo Pagestu) and Pete (Jo Pagestupe). The lads were keenly aware of the lack of opportunities in Rock 'N' Roll for white males at the time (the scene being dominated by females: Billie Haley, Carly Perkins, Holly Buddy et al) so they chose a pseudonym to better their chances of success.

Brian Epstein was fooled into thinking he was signing the next Marvelettes when he signed the band. The Cavern was so dark at the time that he couldn't actually see who was on the stage. By the time they broke through in 1963, the band had finalised on the name Jo Pageri - Len McCaHarristarr being deemed to masculine/uncommercial.

 

Who came in through Paul's bathroom window?

I don't know, but I'm jealous.

Why did Paul feel the need to wait until it was dark to tow Rita's heart away?

Because it's illegal to steal a tow truck. Why else?

And expecting a similar answer, how do you beat the Beatles?

Don't tell them they're married. It's a secret.

The last Beatle to get married was John. In fact, he was never married. He tried to marry Cynthia Powell, but their vows were drowned out by the sound of construction workers outside. The registrar actually asked John if he'd agree to dedicate 'Not A Second Time ' to him, once he got round to writing it; and he asked Cynthia if she really did have 'teeth like a horse'.

His 'wedding' to Yoko was a publicity stunt. Nothing more, nothing less.

The very obvious answer would, of course, be Stuart Sutcliffe. It is well known that Paul wrote the song in remembrance of Stuart, and that Stuart himself rose from the grave personally rose from the grave to perform the song. In fact, the original working title for the song was "Stuart's Death", which Stuart thought was rather insensitive of Paul, but let it slide because it was a result from a dream.

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

It was John, of course. John would later model the song lyrics into "Glass Onion ".

That would be Ringo's mother, Elsie. She was an insatiable collector of records, everything from 1920s Dixieland through 40s swing through the latest rock hits, and it was through raiding her voluminous stacks that the boys ultimately expanded their repertoire and became the hottest band in Liverpool and Hamburg. 

Why was "Good Day Sunshine " banned from the BBC's airwaves?

Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds , of course. It's clearly about LSD.

A Taste Of Honey - hence John’s title ‘A Waste Of Money.’ He felt anything without Yoko wasn’t worth being produced.

Did Paul ever finish fixing the hole?

Not quite. It was revealed by John in "Glass Onion " that Paul moved on to Fixing A Hole in the ocean.

She was seventeen, and what did Paul mean by that?

That she had celebrated seventeen birthdays at the time the song was written. As the first lines originally went:

Well she was just seventeen,

having had that many birthdays between the day she was born and now.

The story goes that John asked Paul to change the second line because a) it didn't scan b) it didn't rhyme and c) her age didn't need explaining anyway.

As to why the girl hasn't aged since 1962 is a different matter entirely.

 

What was it that George wanted to tell somebody in 1966?
