Three from John, the most quotable man of the 20th century:

 

"I'd like to say thank you on behalf of the group and ourselves and I hope we passed the audition."

"The people in the cheaper seats clap your hands. And the rest of you,
just rattle your jewelry."

Many people ask what are Beatles? Why Beatles? Ugh, Beatles, how did
the name arrive? So we will tell you. It came in a vision--a man
appeared in a flaming pie and said unto them "From this day on you are
Beatles with an A." "Thank you, Mister Man," they said, thanking him.

I forgot about the last one there, what a fail on my part, well thanks for mentioning it. 🙂

When I Twish And Shout, it makes the Girl say "What Goes On?", and than I say, "I do this Here, There and Everywhere", and than she finishes by saying "Honey Don't".

The song "Imagine" has amazing lyrics. Even thought I'm a complete christian, I could feel a little sympathy for the first part of the song.


 

Same here....I'm a Christian, but I think organized religion is stupid, sometimes.

Rap music is just computerised crap. I listen to Top of the Pops
and after three songs I feel like killing someone. a-hard-days-night-george-9

 

I go to restaurants and the groups always play Yesterday. I even signed a guy's violin
in Spain after he played us Yesterday. He couldn't understand that I
didn't write the song. But I guess he couldn't have gone from table to
table playing I Am The Walrus. a-hard-days-night-john-6

 

What a fucking great band we were. a-hard-days-night-paul-8

 

The song ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’ was written speci?cally
for me, but they had one line that I wouldn’t sing. It was ‘What would
you do if I sang out of tune? Would you stand up and throw tomatoes at
me?’ I said, ‘There’s not a chance in hell am I going to sing this
line,’ because we still had lots of really deep memories of the kids
throwing jelly beans and toys on stage; and I thought that that if we
ever did get out there again, I was not going to be bombarded with
tomatoes. a-hard-days-night-ringo-13

 

 

Some of the ones you mentioned are my favorites too.

OKay, so, I really love it when they act borderline gay with each other.  Just because it makes me smile that they were so close that they could do that and be totally straight… so, here's my contribution xD

 

"We were each other's intimates." – Paul

"Paul and I know each other on a lot of different levels that very few people know about." – John

 

Q: "If John Lennon could come back for a day, how would you spend it with him?"

Paul: "In bed."

"I have had two companions in my life. Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono. That's not bad" – John

 

Q: "Yeah, your friends…"

John: "Yes, all your best friends let you know what's going on. I was trying to put it 'round that I was gay, you know– I thought that would throw them off… dancing at all the gay clubs in Los Angeles, flirting with the boys… but it never got Off The Ground."

Q: "I think I've only heard that lately about Paul."

John: "Oh, I've had him, he's no good."

 

PLAYBOY: "Do you stick pretty much together off-stage?"

JOHN: "Well, yes and no. Groups like this are normally not friends, you know. They're just four people out there thrown together to make an act. There may be two of them who sort of go off and are friends, you know, but…"

GEORGE: "Just what do you mean by that?"

JOHN: "Strictly platonic, of course. But we're all rather good friends, as it happens."

PLAYBOY: "Then do you see a good deal of one another when you're not working?"

PAUL: "Well, you know, it depends. We needn't always go to the same places together. In earlier

days, of course, when we didn't know London, and we didn't know anybody in London, then we really did stick together, and it would really be just like four fellows down from the north for a coach trip. But

nowadays, you know, we've got our own girlfriends… they're in London… so that we each normally go out with our girlfriends on our days off. Except for John, of course, who's married."

PLAYBOY: "Do any of the rest of you have any plans to settle down?"

PAUL: "I haven't got any."

GEORGE: "Ringo and I are getting married."

PLAYBOY: "Oh? To whom?"

GEORGE: "To each other. But that's a thing you'd better keep a secret."

RINGO: "You better not tell anybody."

GEORGE: "I mean, if we said something like that, people'd probably think we're

queers. After all, that's not the sort of thing you can put in a reputable magazine like PLAYBOY. And anyway, we don't want to start the rumor going."

PLAYBOY: "To bring up another topic that's shocking to some, how do you feel about the homosexual problem?"

GEORGE: "Oh yeah, well, we're all homosexuals, too."

RINGO: "Yeah, we're all queer."

PAUL: "But don't tell anyone."

PLAYBOY: "Seriously, is there more homosexuality in England than elsewhere?"

JOHN: "Are you saying there's more over here than in America?"

PLAYBOY: "We're just asking."

GEORGE: "It's just that they've got crewcuts in America. You can't spot 'em."

PAUL: "There's probably a million more queers in America than in England. England may have it's scandals… like Profumo

and all… but at least they're heterosexual."

JOHN: "Still, we do have more than our share of queers, don't you think?"

PAUL: "It just seems that way because there's more printed about them over here."

RINGO: "If they find out somebody is a bit bent, the press will always splash

it about."

 

"At the meeting Paul just kept mithering on about what we were going to do, so in the end I just said, 'I think you're daft. I want a divorce.'" – John Lennon

 

And then there's my FAVOURITE interview in the world…

 

 

George Harrison & Ringo Starr on "Aspel & Company"

George: "He's got the bluest eyes in the world!"

Ringo: "I hate gardening…I love him, but I hate gardening."

Ringo: "…So in the end I said 'Sue me if you want, but I'll always love you.'"

 

Paul: "Well it's a bit mad, you know, buying each other presents."

John: "We've got each other, haven't we?"

Paul: "Oooo."

 

"It's handy to fuck your best friend." – John Lennon

 

PAUL: "Yeah. We just write the songs first, and then just shove 'em in anywhere, as

George said. Especially in the sunset scene at the very end of the

picture, where the two lovers– that's George and Ringo– are coming

towards each other on the beach!"

"I'd like to end up sort of unforgettable."

 Here is John's quote from Anthology...

"When The Beatles were depressed, thinking, the group is going nowhere, and this is a shitty deal, and we're in a shitty dressing room...I'd say, 'Where are we going, fellas?' They'd go, 'To the top, Johnny!' And I'd say, 'Where's that, fellas?' and they'd say, 'To the toppermost of the poppermost!' and I'd say, 'Right!' Then we'd all cheer up."

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

That interview in general was adorable.  Although, Ringo seems a litle tipsy the entire time, but he's hillarious...

 

Q: Where would you be without the Beatles? What would you be doing?

Ringo:  I'd be... a drummer.

 

George: No, I had a wonderful time with Yoko in New York.

Ringo: (under his breath) You're not the only one...

 

George: Someone broke into my house and knicked a pair of silk pyjamas.

Ringo:  That was me.

I've got a good one, "I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak. So I've been freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know. I'm one of those people. - John Lennon

"My earliest recollection is of sitting on a pot of the top of the stairs, having a poop--shouting, 'Finished!'"

~George

 

"I'd seen lasers in James Bond films, where they could cut people in half. I first saw one in a rock concert when I went to see Led Zeppelin at Earls Court in London, and I remember thinking, 'How brave is that Robert Plant? He's standing right in front of this thing and it could cut him clean in half." Paul McCartney

 

"The trouble with keeping both feet firmly on the ground, is that you can never take your pants off" -- Ringo Starr

 

"In the Anthology book, you talk about the unwound G string. What is that?"

George Harrison: "It's one of those little things that goes up your butt so that people can't see your pantylines... No, It's actually a 3rd string that doesn't have a winding around it."

 

George: "What's Eminem? Aren't they chocolates or something?"

 

"As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot."

-John Lennon

 

Question: Do you date much?

Ringo: What are you doing tonight?

 

And of course my signature

And if they played a Beatles song, everyone had to
stop. You had to stop. And then he would get up close to the radio and
then he would narrate the song for you. Which was when you realized,
which he was not afraid to admit, that he loved that band. That it was
his band and that he absolutely loved it.

— Jack Douglas (on John listening to the radio)

That much is evident from the (excellent) David Sheff interview book All We Are Saying, which was first published in edited for in January 1981 in Playboy. He was asked to recount his memories of a load of Beatles songs and was so enthusiastic about it. He hated being asked when The Beatles were getting back together but was happy to talk about the music.

Curiously, given what Jack Douglas said, he also said he didn't like hearing the songs on the radio as they brought back memories of the recording sessions and what was going on at the time, and that he hated the production in most of them. He said he couldn't listen to them like normal people might.
