Can we attribute the Beatle mop top to Moe from the Three Stooges? I just found this interview with him where tells how he got his haircut and then mentions he did it long before the Beatles.  🙂  From about 2 mins

No, we can't.

Long story, shortly told:

Popular cut among the Exis, both Jurgen and Klaus have one, Astrid persuades Stu, boys laugh, John and Paul follow suit in Paris, George joins them, they sack Pete, get Ringo in, Ringo gets moptop.

All German students. Also known as the Hamlet cut.

No Stooges involved.

Were the Beatles truly the first to intentionally use feedback on a record? 

The reason that I ask is because many things that have been claimed as Beatle firsts over the years were not actually done for the first time by the Beatles. It wouldn't surprise me if this one weren't true, but I can't think of anything earlier.   

Old post, but I think it's less that The Beatles did it first, more that they did it almost first and with a global audience bigger than anyone else's, including those who would go on to be the stars of the 70s and beyond.

Perhaps I worded it wrong but I didn't mean The Beatles were influenced by The Three Stooges just that Moe got there first with the mop top. Ok I'm being tongue in cheek as I'm sure it was probably a popular hair style in the middle ages and perhaps elsewhere but lets give Moe some credit.

Here's another question. Anyone know which other guitars went missing along with Paul's "Hamburg" bass in 1969? I wasn't aware any others went missing but just read this article https://reverb.com/news/still-at-large-6-famous-stolen-guitars-that-have-yet-to-be-recovered

I was reading up on Paul and George and thought,

Which two Beatles had the most stable/consistent relationship across the years?

There's little doubt in my mind that it would have to be George and Ringo, despite George's fling with Maureen playing a large part in the ending of her and Ringo's marriage.

Paul has a few messy relationships, however his marriage with Linda was long and stable.

However, Linda wasn't a Beatle, and the question was about which two Beatles...

The best three inter-Beatles relationships all involved Ringo, with his relationship with John coming second, and Paul third.

The relationships between John, Paul and George all experienced difficulties over the years, with Paul and George's appearing the most difficult, while John and Paul's wasn't much better.

For all the talk of how John and Paul had settled their differences by the time of John's death, ignored is the fact that an ongoing case against Capitol would have caused probably the biggest rift between the two since the battle for Northern Songs in 1969.
