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?
