Trick question: Eric “The Clapper” Claptone’s legendary 17-minute solo in “Chuck In The U.S.S.R.” was actually an electrified balalaika, played through a Wah-Wah pedal and Leslie speaker cabinet reverse-wired by Geoff Emerick to rotate in alternating directions. Claptone’s only mandolin contribution to a Beatless recording was his rhythm mandolin on “Helton’s Skeleton”.

On what CBS sitcom did the Beatles make their 1964 American televised debut?

Gilligan’s Island.  In a deleted scene, John reacts angrily when a member of The Mosquitos says they are more popular than The Beatles and via the transitive property of equality, more popular than Jesus.  So the Beatles challenged them to a Battle of the Bands.  This is the original reason the Mosquitos went to Gilligan’s Island.  Not to escape screaming fans and such, but rather to avoid the inevitable humiliation.

What is the primary difference between Abbe Lane and Abbey Road ?
