The correct answer would be: ‘I Buried Paul’. 

Which song did Paul play to the Quarry Men that got him into the band?

Uncle Albert /Admiral Halsey . Paul traveled back in time to prevent Pete Best from joining the band.

 

Which Beatle allegedly was killed in an auto accident in 1966 or 1967?

The answer would be of course, John Lennon . This is well-documented with the fact that John Lennon was all ‘peace’ this and ‘love’ that after the incident.

Which is the only post-Beatles album to include all four former-Beatles members playing on the album, albeit not together?

At Pattie Boyd’s wedding to Eric Clapton, all four Beatles were spotted using the cover of Ringo’s album Sentimental Journey as a stand on which to balance their game of Connect Four. George won the tournament.

Which Beatles album did they then use to play checkers?

A simple black ink marker quickly turned the White Album into a fully functional checkerboard, until John stomped on it in a tantrum after losing three consecutive games to George. With that board destroyed, the boys opted for a simplified 20-square version, using the AHDN cover instead.

How did the boys spend their down time during the filming of the AHDN field scene?

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 PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

They spent their time singing and dancing, to a song that was a hit before. And though many people wouldn’t know, their mothers should know.

Why was Pete Best often spotted in a Ringo costume?

At the height of Beatlemania, you couldn’t moved for Beatle-related paraphernalia, of which a Beatles Costume was a popular choice. Pete wanted a John costume, but he couldn’t afford one so he ended up with a Ringo one instead. During the period of Ringo’s tonsillitis in 1964, he donned his costume for the auditions to replace Ringo but was rejected for not being Ringoesque. Ringo’s place was eventually taken by Ringo himself in a Jimmy Nichol costume.

 

What are the fifteen things John Lennon doesn’t believe in, according to his song God ?

He believed in himself and in Crystal Light drink mix.  It is a little-known fact that he wrote the jingle used in their early 1980’s commercials: “I believe in Crystal Light / ‘Cause I believe in Me.”

 

What is the actual name given to The White Album ?

What is the actual name given to The White Album ?

  

The correct answer, obviously, is “The Rolling Bones”. After the smash success that was “Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band”, the Fab Four decided to pretend to be another band once more, this time pretending to be the Rolling Stones. Mick Jagger, however, wasn’t amused, because the Beatles were so good at their pretending that they (as well as their legion of fans) thought of themselves as the Rolling Stones. To emulate their success, the Rolling Stones released an album in 1969 entitled: “Let It Beatles”, where they pretended and eventually thought of themselves as the Beatles. In the end, the Rolling Stones became the Beatles doppelgangers.

 

What instrument did John originally learned guitar chords from?

Why was Paul McCartney accused of encouraging fans to try LSD, and what actually happened?

George ‘s homage to John and Yoko’s second Zapple release Life With The Lions . It’s a little known fact that he was actually a big fan of this album and wanted to recreate it in it’s avant garde entirety using only the sounds of breaking digestives, dunking them in tea and eating them. Yoko particularly enjoyed the final product so much, she went out of her way to “borrow” the very same “instruments” for non-recording purposes…

So what happened to Ognir Rrats after the Ringo TV special back in 1978?

When Ringo unexpectably died in a car crash soon, Ognir Rrats soon took over Ringo’s position and became what is now infamously known as Fingo.

What happened to Desmond and Molly?

Desmond Jones had a barrow in the market place. Molly was the singer in a band. Desmond had come to the UK in the early 50s, along with his parents. He married Molly Mildew in 1964. They had two children, Mickey and Milly. Sadly, Molly passed away suddenly when the ‘home sweet home’ fell on top of her in a freak accident.

Desmond remarried in later years, to a girl called Loretta Martin. They are both retired and live near Tenby, Wales.

The correct answer would be “Carnival Of Light “, where the light emitted for the carnival is Paul’s bright teeth. You see, the track was actually made for a toothpaste commercial at the time. The first two minutes was Paul brushing his teeth while humming a tune for what would eventually be “Your Mother Should Know “.

Is Paul secretly Stuart Sutcliffe in a Paul McCartney costume?

It was John. All he ever wrote were Silly Love Songs, causing Paul to eventually break up the band in his anger. The estimated total number of John’s Silly Love Songs is too long to fit in this post, because a vast number of them were outtakes due to the fact that Paul hated Silly Love Songs and “Granny Music.” One of his most famous outtakes is called “I’m So In Love With You That I’m Going To Shove Five Lemons Into My Ears (And Aren’t You So Happy About That).”

How many different types of fruit (and in what amounts) did John attempt to shove into his ears before settling on lemons?
