Faul and Pete Best. The band nearly broke up over John’s desire to reveal Paul’s evil twin, and no one wanted to remember Pete existed.

To a Gambling club called the lion’s den in Jersey City to find out more about what exactly went on with Tweeter, the Undercover Cop, Jan and the Monkey Man.

 

What did they find out when they got here?

When did Paul become a veterinarian and what did he say was the reason?

Way too few people play BTEE 🙁

 

Paul became a vet in 1971 when the last surviving Ram of High Park Farm was suffering from a dangerous illness. So he quickly became a farm doc and nursed the animal back to health in time for the cover shooting. Linda was glad, because if the Ram died she would have been the one to throw on the Ram costume and pose on the cover. Quote Paul: “An album called Ramwithout a Ram ain’t fab enough, period!”

 

What game were Ringo and George playing while Paul and John recorded She’s Leaving Home and who won?

They were playing ‘Find The Tea Bag’. Ringo won as George was so stoned on LSD he didn’t realise Ringo had made him coffee and spent the entire session looking in his cup.

Why was John looking at the camera whilst the other three were looking away on the cover of ‘Rubber Soul ‘? What were Paul, Ringo and George looking at?

One of the few scheduling blunders made by Brian Epstein during their heyday, the photographer they hired to shoot the album cover was unavailable, and Medusa filled in. The band was told not to look at the photographer, and so the other three looked away, while John looked directly into the lens, to avoid becoming permanently stoned. As it turned out they were all so stoned already Medusa had no effect on them.

Which other mythological figure did The Beatles encounter in Swinging London?

What were the Four consuming on the film set of Help ! that John later confessed that they were having it for breakfast?

Leftover pizza from the previous night’s dinner, which is, as everyone knows, one of the finest breakfast foods known to man, and inspired Paul to write the song “The Night Before ” about the previous night’s meal after being treated to dinner at a particularly fine pizzeria (“Treat me like you did the night before”).

What are some other songs from the album that were inspired by this phenomenon?

Help ! – Lennon needs help to eat the pizza with some dignity, because it got all squishy and plashy in the fridge over night. “When I was younger […] I never needed anybodys help in any way” – because he didn’t have follow table manners strictly as a little kid.

I Need You – Georgie was longing for those leftovers, his favourite food since biscuits. He was usually the first to wake up in the morning and quietly sang this song while had to wait for the others to get up before he could have breakfast.

It’s Only Love – Johns love letter to the pizzeria. “Why should I feel the way I do?” – he was still confused that a restaurant could induce such strong feelings in him.

Tell Me What You See – As mentioned, the pizza leftovers didn’t look that great anymore after a night in the refrigerator. So during breakfast, the Beatles had to play ‘Tell Me What You See ‘ to figure out what’s on the pizza (They couldn’t remember because they were stoned on weed).

Yesterday – Paul reminiscing about how the pizza looked and tasted better the previous night before getting scruffy overnight. This was intended to be a breakfast song from the beginning, first Scrambled Eggs, the Paul changed it to his experience with the pizza.

 

What was the only food they could get during their rehearsals at Twickenham?

John and Yoko ate chocolate cake. They had that strange habit of doing it in a bag…two-virgins

Paul was more than happy eating his California grass.paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

George…well you all know what was George’s only food when rehearsing a-hard-days-night-george-10

None of the songs were waltzes, so naturally Henry wasn’t going to dance.  A pony, a road hog, and a moon dog replaced him, and John really “dug” that, especially the Pony.

 

What song could George play really well that convinced John to make him a member of the Quarrymen?

C’mon, I know the thread is called “Beatles trivia – even easier”, but everybody knows how George auditioned to John for the Quarrymen on the upper deck of a Liverpool bus that night, and also that he played Within You Without You , bringing with him an orchestra of indian musicians. In fact, here’s a colourised picture of the audition, taken that night by Pete Shotton.

Image Enlarger

Lennon called the audition “impressive, although slightly exaggerated” and told Harrison that “Skiffle will do for the moment”, whereby accepting Georgie into the group.

 

Next question: Where was the music video for Something shot?

In the back. This really disappointed the promo video and it refused to work again with the Beatles which is why ‘Something ‘ was their last filmed promo as a group.

 

What was John’s controversial response when he was asked in an interview “‘I Am The Walrus ‘ – What the hell is that about?”

John replied “It put the mystery in ‘Magical Mystery Tour .’ Goo-goo g’-joob!”

 

What reasons did the Artists and Repertoire man from Decca give for turning down the Beatles after their audition on New Years’ Day 1962?

He said that even though they could sing and play pretty well Decca was looking for another profile. The kind of group that couldn’t play or sing or make their own songs. In short he said they were waiting for The Rolling Stones to come.

What was The Bottles first triple A side single?

Legendary samurai Hattori Hanzo, who forged samurai swords in his cell, made of iron he telepathically ripped from the bars in a state of battle meditation. As soon as every inmate was armed with such a sword they all staged a glorious escape with Paul singing his 2001 hit Freedom as their battle song and war cry. Japanese authorities yielded quickly and gave Paul all his pot back.

Why was the planned collaboration between Wings and the Plastic Ono Band eventually abandoned?

Being all for the environment Linda and Paul took offence at the use of the word ‘plastic’ and demanded it be changed to ‘100% Sustainable Recyclable Ono Band’. Negotiations broke down after John and Yoko insisted the discussions be imagined instead of actually having them. Unsurprisingly no compromise could be reached and ultimately nothing happened.

 

What ritual did the Beatles carry out before their 1966 US tour?

They burned their Beatle paraphernalia, which the American public picked right up on this time around.

 

Who delivered the news to Pete Best that he was out of the band?

The unfortunate news was delivered to Pete, in sign language, first by his own left hand; and confirmed shortly thereafter by the right. They couldn’t coordinate their message, unfortunately, since neither hand ever knew what the other was doing.

What’s the only Beatlesong containing the word “crabalocker”? Please quote the full line!

It is a line from Ringo’s 1968 unreleased ‘Yellow Submarine ‘ track, ‘Seafood Delight’;

“The hidden delight came from the Sardinian docker.

Squid, shrimp, prawns, crab, a locker.”

 

This was the original submission from Ringo’s trip to Sardinia after he quit the band. Upon hearing the song the rest of the band quit with Paul faking his death. This was also the song which forced John and Yoko into the world of Unreleased Music and primal therapy.

 

What was the name of the song Mick Jagger and Keith Richards offered to the Beatles as a thank you for being given ‘I Wanna Be Your Man ‘? What was the reason for the song being rejected?
