Just who is that sitting on Ringo's shoulders on the Ringo the 4th album cover and why are they there?

Originally, and similar to Paul's Ram images of two beetles (Beatles) doing the nasty on his album cover, Ringo was going to have the proverbial "monkey on his back." This was to represent the pressure he felt to reproduce the same critical and popular professional success that the other three had after the break-up.  However, the hairy monkey felt itchy on Ringo's neck, and it would not wear the shorts, so this model was found to replace the monkey.

When it was still only an instrumental and without lyrics, which Paul song was called by the band Scrambled Eggs ?

Scattered legs , it was meant to be their big hit single in '65. The chorus, the instrumentation, the lyrics, everything was perfect but something happened and it was never released.

What was it? Why it was never ever released?

To get the chorus, instrumentation, lyrics and everything perfect, it took a long time. But the tastes of the popular music buyer had changed by then.  And so, as George Martin put it, "That song was so yesterday."

Why were no songs from the album Revolver ever played at a live Beatles concert in 1966?

EMI and Capitol banned all promotion, mention or playing of the album until three days after the initial release date to increase sales. . It was a new attempt at marketing, bottle up the stream so it explodes when opened, and surprisingly it failed as no one had a clue the album existed - including the Beatles themselves. George returned to this approach with his 1982 album ‘Gone Troppo ’.

What was the original destination of the ‘Magical Mystery Tour ’ bus and why were they going there?

They were headed for Strawberry Fields via Penny Lane .  The group wanted to go to a marshmallow pie festival, but only rocking horse people were being admitted (unless, of course, you had kaleidoscope eyes). Since the Beatles were only rocking people, it was a no go.

The Plastic Oh No Band (the name was a subtle attack at the Bottles, because Pete assumed they were named after plastic bottles).

 

In which song / lyric did the Bottles, later known as Beatles, make a statement that they were no fans of plastic bottles themselves?

Green Bottle - a 1968 progressive folk ditty that proclaimed the betterment of glass bottles to cool your water when stored in a fridge It was the standout track on their second, third, four and fifth albums, 'Back To The Black' (it was the same album repackaged, the fans were too busy screaming when they played it at home to notice).

 

What was the resulting fallout when France sued the Beatles for using their national anthem at the beginning of 'All You Need Is Love ' (see here)?

Then The Beatles, at first known as The Bottles, sued France for using the beginning of 'All You Need Is Love ' as it's national anthem. This caused an infinite loop of suing each other that ended when George composed Old Brown Sue. This caused both France's heart and Eiffel tower to melt so France forgave  them and they forgave France and everybody was happy and everybody was laughing and then the sun king entered the room and they all suffered second-degree burns.

What famous Beatles myth started when a fan listened to "Please, please me" backwards?

Time got reversed at some point and Please Please Me is in fact their last album. This supposed 'myth' makes perfect sense: They had their first concert on some roof because nobody booked them yet, then they had to record several albums before they got to play real live concerts at all, and as their fame declined their success was more and more reduced to their home country, the UK, before Ringo eventually left the band and they ended as a washed-up has-been band past their prime, playing little clubs in Hamburg with Pete Best as their new drummer.

 

Which evildoer who shares his name with a song by the Bottles is connected to undisputed proof about this time-reversal-theory?

That would be "Anna", who specifically chose her palindromic name to hide any evidence of time-reversal.

Why was John unable to persuade the other Beatles to join him in adopting spectacles beginning in 1966?

Two (twins - a girl and boy). Dhanielle (18 minutes the older) is a reasonably successful musician known professionally as Dhani; her brother, Dhani ("She's always been eighteen minutes older than me. Even after all these years she's still eighteen minutes older than me."), is an air stewardess for Air India.

What did Paul and Pete do at the Bambi Kino, and with what?

Him and Maureen were figuring out their relationship, because it wasn't clear if Ringos affection for Peace & Love should be treated as infidelity or not. Paul replaced him on drums, with Faul already practicing on bass.

 

Which album cover was changed last minute and why?

I need to photoshop Dhani Harrison into an Air India Stewardess image now

The White Album . Originally it was supposed to be adorned with four photographs, one of each Beatle, on the front cover, but a careless staff member left the proof copy out in the sun and it got bleached into the familiar blank white with embossed "The Beatles" that it has remained to this day.

Which Beatle was the most accomplished violinist, and where/how did he acquire this skill?

It's not Paul... he never played the violin.

I don't think George either.

Maybe John... He might be the answer.ahdn_john_08_gif

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.
