Good afternoon.

Thanks for reading this post.

Had a "discussion" with a friend about how many Beatle songs there are without Guitar.

I came up with 3. Elanor Rigby, She's Leaving Home and Goodnight.

We originally thought Within You Without You but did discover that George did double some of the sitar parts on guitar.

Are there any more?

Thanks!

For No One , Good Day Sunshine , Blue Jay Way , Only A Northern Song , Don't Pass Me By , The Inner Light , Golden Slumbers also don't have guitar in them although all of them that i mentioned except for The Inner Light have bass guitar in them.

I AM HAVING AN EMERGENCY! paul-mccartney

 

What were the names of the spiders George and Paul killed? The video is blocked on my school computer and I may never know.

What spiders? What video??...
Anyway, i was wondering about that scene in Backbeat where John and Stu get into a fight with a couple (maybe more) of sailors and they beat Stu's head... did that ever happen? If so, what pub was it? Is that pub still alive?

Maybe some variation from the actual circumstances?  According to Colin Unwin, there was a fight after the Beatles had played at the Litherland Town Hall, Seaforth; Stu was attacked by a "gang of teddyboys", then John Lennon and Pete Best jumped in to help Stu:

Jimmy and Jemima were the two spiders encountered during Paul and George's hitchhiking trip to Harlech in north Wales.

Was reading Joe's transcript of the Daily Mirror article from when John beat up Bob Wooler at Paul's 21st. Does anyone know where to see the actual article?

The Stones wasn't until 11 December 1968, so it couldn't be that, @Shamrock Womlbs. It's probably from the Revolution  promo film shoot.

It's great to see that video again. Yeah, it seems very likely that the picture from the collage comes from that video shoot since the mic seen in the picture is the same as the ones they are using in the Revolution video. The thing misleading me was the psychedelic blue light ... Maybe they did different takes with different lightings? Or is it just a filter applied to the picture?...

There was more than one "performance" of that day, and there is more than one promo film. It should also be noted that there was more than one stills photographer present to capture the events of the day, who could have used filters, and if you look behind Ringo on John's side of the stage, there is a "blue" light panel:

Isn't that seen at the end of the 'Anthology' edit of the 'Revolution ' clip where they no doubt used previously unseen moments?

Apologies if these questions have been answered before or are common Beatles knowledge. Anyway, I've decided to write a fictionalised account of Beatlemania (covering Summer 1962 - February 1964) which will probably never see the light of day. Incidentally, it's based on a novel by a man named Lear.

 

1. When did Pete Best find out his mum was having an affair with Neil, and what was his reaction?

2. I've read that Cynthia found out she was pregnant on the same day she received some exam results. When would this have been, and how long did it give them to arrange a wedding?

3. When was Mal employed as part of the Beatles?

1. He wasn't bothered by it. In fact, when Neil first heard that Pete was sacked, he was also going to quit but Pete talked him out of it.

2. Less than a month.

3. 1962.

@Tony Japanese

For the Cynthia question: https://www.beatlesbible.com/people/cynthia-lennon/

For the Mal Evans question: https://www.beatlesbible.com/people/mal-evans/ (he joined them full-time in 1963; some sites date his start date full-time with the Beatles as 11 August 1963)
