In 1967, for a brief period, George had to play on the streets (see picture below) to earn some extra money… What took him to that situation?

George had sunk 750,000 pounds into an ill-fated creative business venture, partnering with Magic Alex to create a 72-string, eight-channel amplified sitar, with built in tape-looping delay system, fully adjustable rhythm generator, various triggerable distorting effects, and a multitude of built-in Mellotron-style timbres that could simulate all manner of other instruments, as well as a large number of bird calls and animal noises. The instrument was to have been self-powered by a revolutionary onboard system Alex had conceived, whereby ambient human negativity would be transformed into natural electricity. Unfortunately, however, 1967’s universal good-vibes mood among the general public couldn’t generate enough of the necessary negative energy for the prototype instrument to ever function properly.

Why did Ringo refuse to contribute harmonies to “Because “?

He felt Harmony should do it herself as he could lie in bed and discuss philosophy with Yoko.


Who was Sexy Sadie and why was a song written, recorded and released by The Beatles on their self-titled 1968 album ‘The White Album ‘?

This guitar, of course

After George brought in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps “, John was also inspired to write a song about a guitar, but instead of the sadness of George’s theme, he chose an ode to the delicious beauty of the Fender Stratocaster.

“I’ll Sit Right Down And Cry All Over My Own Damn Face”, an informal name the boys gave for the extended – often to 10 minutes – instrumental workout based on the chord pattern to their 1962 showstopping Elvis cover

Hamburg/Liverpool audiences were allegedly in awe of this occasional set closer, sadly never recorded because the tape ran out, for a drink.


How, exactly were Martins George, and Sweet Loretta, related?

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney
