The Delmonico Hotel in New York. 28 August 1964. Retreating to the bathroom because of all the police outside, Bob Dylan hands a joint to Ringo – The Beatles taster, expecting he’d know the etiquette. Ringo smokes the whole thing. What a night! According to Paul, there were at least seven levels…

LongHairedLady,  LOVE that Back to the Future reference.

A ‘must’ movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it.

One of the (many) funny scenes in the movie was seeing a Florida baseball team in in the World Series. A Florida baseball team? What a crazy thought!

They were playing the Cubs – and alas, that’s still preposterous.

I would go to The Dakota on December 8, 1980 and save John, so he and Yoko could make more amazing songs like “Walking on Thin Ice.”

The movie that introduced lots of people to Johnny B. Goode, which I heard appears in the movie, because I haven’t watched the movie yet.

Oh, and by the way, that photo is wrong.  People have been photoshopping it and passing it around every so often.  The real date is October 21, 2015.

I would love to have been around during the filming of “Hard Days Night”.  They looked like they had so much fun filming that…and they were all so young and gorgeous…heart  Oh yeah!

We realized this last night during our Back to the Future marathon!  If all it did was get us to watch it again, it was totally worth the “prank”…  because those movies are so effing awesome.

I would want to see them in Hamburg, pre Ringo. 

Same here. I’d go on a different night and we could compare notes: how many guitar solos in Roll Over Beethoven ; how many fights there were; the many ways that the 5 (would need to see Stu playing) insulted the German audience. I’d need to go with either a couple of burly minders or in a impenetrable bubble to ensure i came out alive.

I’m sticking with these two. We will tell John, Paul, and/or George to look for the others of you who want to seem them at a later date.

If only one person can go to one event, then my second choice is to go to the recording sessions of “A Day In The Life ” to find out who sang the aaahhhs. I would do that for all of you.

If I had a time machine, I’d go back to December 8, 1980, to the Dakota Apartment building at approximately 10:30 p.m., find Mark David Chapman and inject him with a fatal overdose of heroin, check his pulse to make sure, then get back in my time machine and come home.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Good idea. You do that, and I’ll go into the future, get some sort of cancer-curing miracle medicine, go back to whenever George was diagnosed with cancer, cure him, and come back to the present.

Yes, I wouldn’t have wanted (what’s the proper grammatical tense for time-travel?) him to survive and likely try to kill some other time. 

On a general P.S. I think some people who seem rather strangely neutral about Chapman’s crime (or subsume it under some general abstract pacifist principle they think is honoring John or something) don’t factor in the fact that Chapman not only cut down Lennon and stopped him from possibly decades of life and artistic exploration, he also could have injured or killed passers-by.  But a stand on gun control and pacifism is more important, of course; we must have our priorities in life.

You could just chop his hands off, he doesn’t have to die. You would also be punishing him for something he never did. Why not just take his gun and scare him off?

The premise is having a time machine, which means the benefit of hindsight.  Knowing what we know in their future, we know that he would likely try to kill again if given a chance.  If not John, someone else would be his victim, perhaps multiple victims.  (And a person crazy enough can still kill without hands.)
