Because they wanted it to be very basic , but basic didn't appear untill the 80's

 

Why did Ringo refuse to sing in Paul's song "Your drummer should know"?

Because he thought that it would put all drummers on the pedestal, and as we all know the humble Ringo does not want to be in the forefront of the band but rather be a less stand-out yet essential part of it. This philosophy applies to all drummers in all bands as well.

What was the inspiration for John posing nude whilst hugging Yoko Ono for a cover of Rolling Stone magazine before being shot hours later?

Moments before the photo shoot, John was mobbed by a hysterical group of 30-year old Beatlemaniacs beatlemaniacs_02_gif, who removed all of his clothing. Rather than walk an extra several hundred yards to his wardrobe, the breathless John simply clung to Yoko for warmth. two-virgins

 

What are the lyrics to the Lennon-McCartney composition "I Wanna Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!"

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

The lyrics for I Wanna Yeah Yeah Yeah are:

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something;

you think you lost your love.

When I say that something,

it's you she's thinking of

 

But I wanna, yeah yeah yeah

I wanna, yeah yeah yeah

 

She said you hurt her so

you'll let me be your man.

But now she says she knows

you'll let me hold your hand

 

I wanna, yeah yeah yeah

I wanna, yeah yeah yeah

 

She says she loves you,

and you know that can't be bad,

It's such a feeling that my love,

I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't ooooooooooooooooooh

 

Yeah you've got that something,

I think it's only fair.

When I say that something,

apologise to her.

 

It was deemed too similar to their previous hit, Please Please Love Me To You.

They were consumed in a tragic accident involving several gardening tools and a dish towel. Revolutions 1 and 9 were only included on the White Album in order to memorialize them. 

How did the hole (that Paul eventually fixed) form in the first place?

Perhaps because he watched to much of 'Jojo's Bizzare Adventure', a popular anime/manga at the time (and still is to this day). Because of his constant need to make Jojo-jokes (or 'Jo-jokes' if you will), he became a lover of the series itself. Part of the reason of his love is his similarity of naming with the main protaganist.

How and why did John, Paul and George become the biggest Teddy Boys in all of Greater Liverpool?

"Teddy Boys " were a youth subculture dedicated to collecting stuffed teddy bears, and JPG collectively owned more than 75 between them - the largest collection in Liverpool. In the Quarrymen's early days, the boys used to arrange them all in rows and perform music for the bears, as an exercise in overcoming their stage fright before attempting to play for live audiences.

Why did Ringo shave off his beard after joining the Beatles?

Before he joined the Beatles, he was a only a small boy and had no need to shave.

The banker was a huge fan of Elvis, so naturally he went for that.

The producers who assembled it foolishly assumed it was nothing when it was, in fact, Something . Big boo-boo as the song is almost* unanimously beloved by fans.

What day is tomorrow, and why is it significant in the Beatleian Calendar?

It’s International Sudoku Day! One of John’s most famed quotes, “Come on boys let’s get crackin’,” originated on this day.
