It was just one concert but with a longer interval.


Why did Paul sing “bald headed Sally” instead of ‘Long Tall Sally ‘ when The Beatles would play it live?

After receiving increased criticism for John’s occasional “crip” acts, the remorseful Beatles became more respectful of the disabled community, and “Bald Headed Sally!” was an affectionate shout-out to the unfortunate teenage victims of alopecia amongst the adoring crowd; and when Paul sang that verse, the afflicted girls in the audience would momentarily remove their Beatle wigs and shake them vigorously, proudly displaying their scalp. 

What’s so funny about “…your funny papers”?

The following people thank vonbontee for this post:

Ahhh Girl

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 PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.

How did America react when John proclaimed, “We’re more populous than Jesus now; there are four of us”?

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.

At first they were afraid, they were petrified.
Kept thinking they could never live without them by their side.


What was John doing on the roof of EMI studio on March 23 1967?

"I Need You by George Harrison"
