Good thing he pronounces his name differently then our brian-epstein.   

Wait , does he? I always thought the pronunciations were interchangeable (although I've always said Brian EpSTINE).

It verges from the sublime to the ridiculote

I don't know - I don't interact all that much with the page so I'm a little surprised.

YKYAHBF when the only thing you learned from this video is that there are no hand claps on the mono version of Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da.

You would have won a £1,000 on a British quiz show when the question:

 

'Anyone who composed the soundtrack to a James Bond film?' comes up.

God bless you, George Martin.

 

Game show was Pointless for the Brits who know it (I've posted about it before quite a few times). The category of people who have been fired/quit a famous band came up last week and Pete Best scored 44 points. I'm sure he's very pleased to know he's not forgotten. 

I picked Syd Barrett, scored around 18 points- was pretty pleased with myself.

I'd have gone for Graham Coxon, Blur (2003).

Can't remember if Coxon was one of the answers you could give, there were 16 in total, from the Britpop era it was Noel Gallagher. I remember Zack de la Rocha from Rage... was one of them, Clapton from The Yardbirds as well. Can't remember anyone else.

Was it a round where the contestants were given clues to the answer (e.g. the musician's initials)?

Yup, that’s every single round in Pointless, you get given some clue- whether it be initials, a photo, films they were in if they’re an actor etc.

I watched that exact same video the other day and was similarly disappointed.

I don’t even bother with those things anymore— it’s always the story of Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds or John’s hatred of Ob La Di Ob La Da or something similarly well-known.

It's true, I should know better by now. But I'm always sucked in by the possibility of new Beatley knowledge.

Sorry for the double post, but...

When you wonder if they sell Beatles wigs on Amazon, so you actually go spend the time you should be using to do something productive to go check, and then you wish you hadn't:

Sometimes I call them the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs- except mine is from a terrible Flintstones episode.

Yep, I saw. That’s inaccurate though: William Shears Campbell wouldn’t have a moptop, would he now? a-hard-days-night-george-10
