It was in three pieces, held together with thumbtacks and leftover ketchup from lunch. He'd accidentally dropped it down the stairs just before the recording session, and couldn't be bothered to go through the trouble of getting another one.

Which of the chocolates in a box of Mackintosh's Good News was George's favourite, and why?

Well, you'll have to let me borrow it sometime. I lose mine around 10:30pm. a-hard-days-night-george-10

Which of the chocolates in a box of Mackintosh's Good News was George's favourite, and why?  

The one labelled "War Is Over". The best news. a-hard-days-night-george-4

Unfortunately, this chocolate headline contained some fine print which smudged or melted before George could read it. What was the subheading of the "War Is Over" chocolate?

It originally said: " Sticky candy of highest grade", but , due to the smudging, looked more like: "A lucky man who made the grade"

 

What Beatles song could be rewritten today to cover the events of Covid 19?

The opening track was "I Saw Her Standing There (Six Feet Away)". One iconic feature of that song was the count in - one, two, three, "cough".

The weirdest thing happened, just as I read this I looked up and saw a couple who looked rather out of shape plodding down the road, presumably in an attempt to get into better shape. SERENDIPPITY. a-hard-days-night-george-4

I Wanna Be Your Mask was discarded and given to the Rolling Stones, who released it as their first single.  It initially failed to chart but went to Number One for one day (10/31) when re-recorded with Keith Richards on his first lead vocal. It was released with an eerily accurate future rendition of Keith's face on a rare picture sleeve.  Pregnant women, those with heart conditions, and small children were warned not to look at it.

Get (far) Back was considered too antisocial. Also, From Me To You was banned as it hinted at an admission of where the virus came from.

Paul is a rare breed... a hemophiliac rugby player. So he gets his lager in one arm while he gets his blood in the other. 

Why does the number nine play such a huge role in John’s lore?

Being the ninth sibling from childless parents, John always felt that he was much more special than numbers 1 to 8. This was confirmed to him when he caught the One After 909 .

 

Why was George's guitar gently weeping?

It got jealous because George started playing other musical instruments, such as the sitar, the swarmandal, and the tambura.

 

What was the original title for the album that was eventually called Let It Be ?

The original title of the album and it's subsequent title track is meant to be "Let It Go", and features a track that completely differs from the current "Let It Be ". "Let It Go" was in the end scrapped by Paul, because he didn't want to start a feud between him and John. In the end, "Let It Go" became an unused track, and he recorded a modified track - "Let It Be " - instead. A few years later, Paul and John starts a feud anyway. 

Disney - the absolute hacks - decided to steal McCartney's song and have Idina Menzel record it for their movie "Frozen". McCartney's old and rich enough by that point, to simply just not care that Disney stole his song.

Why did they do it on the road?

Studio 2 was already booked by someone else and Paul couldn't find his house keys.

Doris Day, "Mother 's Day" was the song.

Why did Magic Alex quit the band in late '72?
