A question about the rules: Does everyone move at the same time, wait for the last person, and then everyone can answer again, or do we just take as many turns as we can? That seems maybe a touch unfair...

I guess you're right, we should wait until everybody has gone until you can your next turn. By the way, you have 300 points.

By the way @sir walter raleigh @Martha @Ron Nasty just so you know the game has started, so when you're ready, pick whether you want a 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, or 1,000 point question and i will ask each of you your question.

Okay, thanks, I'll take a 100 question, please,  let's see if I can answer it...

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Phew, I know that one! It was 1969.

Sorry, Yellow Submarine was released in 1968, 13 July 1968 to be precise. Since you don't have any points, i can't 50 points away from you, so you'll get nothing.

I thought to Martha's question "oh yeah it's '68" and then she answered "1969" and I thought I was wrong and it was a worrying few seconds in my life. 

 

Also, I can answer all of the questions so far (go Kodos). Now someone needs to do a 1000 pointer.

I will go for two guitar parts.

An acoustic guitar from George and a bass guitar from Paul.

When you say bass guitar do you mean a bassline played on a guitar or a part played on a bass guitar.

I don't get into make and model, that's between Paul and his confessor, I just know there's bass, it's Paul, it played on a guitar - whether a bass guitar or bass played on the bottom four strings of a six-string. He's not playing an upright.

But since Paul is said to have overdubbed bass guitar on 11 July, I'd lean toward bass guitar.

I don't know whether to say right or wrong to this one, let me explain:

There are 2 acoustic guitar parts in the song, one by George strumming chords and another by Paul, doubling the bassline on his Martin acoustic guitar. Paul has confirmed this himself and if you listen closely at the beginning of the song, the bassline starts an octave higher than usual, confirming this.

By the way, when i say guitar or guitar parts, i'm not talking about bass guitars, guitars and basses are 2 different things to me.

Here's the quote:

"And we all went, 'Fucking hell!'" recalls McCartney, laughing. "I thought we were gonna hit the roof- and that became the total vibe of [the song]. Then I put the bass on ... and double-tracked it with an acoustic guitar, which is a cool idea: an octave up from the bass, playing exactly the same on acoustic. We used to drive the meters right into the red - and in those days you could defeat machines. So [in that way] you could make acoustics sound like electrics by overdriving the machines. It toughened up the sound." 20

I'll give you half of your points, so you now have 200 points.

What source claims that Michelle was likely done entirely by Paul.

Who is the author who wrote the only officially released biography about The Beatles while they were still together and how old was this man when the book was released.  

Hunter Davies, and he was... erm, 26?
