Complete the lyric: "Everybody's trying to be my..."

  

"comedian." (But I love it!)

Ed Sullivan was famously known as a "talker." What were his last words to the Beatles after their last performance on his program?

  

"Person, woman, man, camera, TV"

After successfully replacing Pete Best with Ringo, the boys briefly toyed with the idea of adding a fifth, female Beatle on vocals, saxophone & percussion for additional multigendered appeal, but ultimately decided against it. Why didn't they go through with it?

All of them!

Because John hadn't met Yoko yet... he was waiting for The One.

Which Beatle had a cameo in the Monty Python sketch "The Cheese Shop", and what part did he play?

Ringo Starr played the part of the undertaker who collects Michael Palin's body at the end of the sketch.  He was reprising his role as the undertaker in the symbolic and iconic march across Abbey Road on the Abbey Road album cover (John = priest, Ringo = undertaker, Paul = dead, George = gravedigger).  However, it was cut, as the Pythons usually never formally ended any of their sketches, but simply rolled into the next one.

 

During the White Album recording sessions, why was Ringo's drum kit covered in flowers one day?

It was one of Yoko's art exhibits titled Music Grows.

What songs do the Hendersons sing as Mr Kite flies through the ring?

They were singing the complete bawdy version of Maggie Mae , which nearly resulted in the closure of Pablo Fanques Fair.  This song often created a lot of confusion, because, of course, Henry the Horse could only dance a waltz and his timing was really off.

 

What did John claim he would have been if he hadn't become successful in music?

I noticed our double and nearly simultaneous answers to the question from @jamessick, so I edited mine to answer yours @Ahhh Girl.

John said he would've been an idiot; probably the one in the Village.

 

What was Paul implying when he said John hadn't been successful in music?

That John had been super succesful in music indeed.

Why did George refuse to feature in a Digestive's comercial?

Because the marketing agency wanted both George and Yoko in the commercial.

 

How many songs did Ringo write as a member of the Beatles?

Trick question: All of his Beatles songs were actually written by Ringo as an ex-member of Rory Storm & The Hurricanes.

How did the Beatles' promotional plan to include a free real apple with each Apple record release go disastrously wrong?

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

One bad apple spoiled the barrel. 

Who was Isaac Vapnick and what part did he play in the story of the Beatles?
