He was cooking "Scrambled Eggs" over a cooking fire that used instruments from a string quartet as fuel.  And that's how Yesterday  was born (but only if you were born Yesterday ) ahdn_paul_02

 

What does "There's one for you, nineteen for me" mean in George Harrison 's Taxman ?

That's George's cryptic reference to the whole "jelly babies" thing. Onstage, while facing a constant shower of confections, George's would regularly snatch a fallen candy or two from the stage floor to fling back into the crowd. But he was usually too busy playing guitar, and therefore only managed to return-fire a single jellybaby for every nineteen that hit him.

Quote the verse in "With a Little Help ..." that mentions the "Bad Finger Boogie".

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.

This is a trick question. The 'Bad finger boogie' line is actually from Happiness Is A Warm Gun

And I feel my bad finger on your boogie, I know nobody can do me no harm.

 

Who joined the Beatles before John?

It was dedicated to Martha and her friends, who were having to defend their chocolate covered dog biscuits from hungry hungry Apple scruffs.

Well, whatever the amount, it surely would be nothing to sneeze at!

What motion picture star, when talking to John, inspired the lyrics to She Said She Said  by saying "I know what it's like to be dead."

Finders keepers. It's Rocky's now.

To the top of the pops.

Faster than a roller coaster.

Anytime (at all).

George was the first Beatle who said he didn't want to be a Beatle anymore. What did he want to be instead?

The unedited version of the Nutopian National Anthem is four seconds long. By removing the last few seconds from the album's previous track (i.e. Bring on the Lucie (Freda Peeple) John and Yoko created another sound collage inspired by their favourite bits on Paul McCartney 's latest LP. 

The final second was later cut, because it didn't fit, and added to the end of the tape. It became a hidden track at the end of the album.

 

What was Ringo asked to do upon joining the band?

He had to show why Pete wasn't Best,

and that he was better than all the rest.

 

What did George do after he got a black eye?
