He tried a shoving total of 4,000 apples, oranges, quinces, grapes, durians, mangoes, and even Brian Epstein into his ears, over a period of weeks, before settling on lemons because he liked the Lennon/Lemon pun.

What did he do with all the discarded fruit?

He turned the strawberries into a song, the grapefruits into a book, the apples into a record label, and the cranberries into sauce...

...in which he buried Paul.

What sugestion did George Martin make regarding the Beatles' initial attempt at "Please Please Me "?

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

He tried to persuade them to make a pornography movie that goes along with the song title, but John and the rest objected, because they did not want to soil their philosophy of sex after marriage. In fact, it is very well known that the Beatles are (deep-down) actually a christian band, and John infamously said: "The Beatles are lesser than Jesus", which prompted many angry fans to burn bibles and gospel records.

Admiral Halsey put in a good word for him. It's not what you know, but who you know. a-hard-days-night-george-10

What year did John Lennon first play Glastonbury? What songs did he sing?

Does anyone else feel like bawling their eyes out knowing that John will never have the chance to play at Glasto? We can have a crying jag over the Beatles Bible House.

The line 'pouring rain' is a reference to the song "Rain " that the Beatles released earlier, and 'rain' is a street word for LSD, there for the fireman is a schizophrenic disorder of everyone in Penny Lane 's imagination from consuming LSD for breakfast, brunch and supper.

What did Paul had a feeling of?

Martha My Dear . It's obvious from his Paul is Live album that he always wanted Martha in the band and the rest out. Also if you play Oh! Darling backwards underwater on a Thursday, you'll here Paul mention that Martha was the fifth Beatle.

Where are we all together now?

After hearing himself immortalized on record, he rethought his outlook and transformed himself into a "Somewhere Man".

How did "Penni-Man", Paul's original rocking tribute to Little Richard, come to be rewritten as the pleasant "Penny Lane " instead?

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 due to the fact that Sgt. Pepper himself payed Paul a visit, and wanted a trip around Penny Lane . Pepper was so unsatisfied with Penny Lane that it drew a little ire from Paul, so much so that Paul decided that poking fun at his former sergeant was more important than expressing his love for Richard.

What did John and Paul had a feeling off?

I think I'll leave that answer to the McLennon shippers... ahdn_paul_02

It's a well known fact The Beatles: Rockband was originally proposed by the members themselves with the help of Magic Alex in an Apple board meeting in 1969, but why did the game fail to take off then?
