Yeah, well, the typical female Beatles fan is at least 50 years old, so you've got to expect some incontinence.

Of course he did. He even wrote a song about it:

Bust my back on the Levy - broke my strings on the BBC
Found my chops on Eel Pie Island - paid my dues at the Marquee
Slagged off by the N.M.E. - lost my stash and my virginity
In this Cockamamie Business

Got my face on Ed Sullivan - broke my heart on the Soul Train
Introduced to Bad Company - lost cells down at Brain Drain
And before I could mend - lost the missus, missed the girlfriend
In this Cockamamie Business

While he lost his virginity John and Paul chanted "Bring forth the destroyer" and Ringo sacrificed 17 black dogs.

Since George contributed nothing else to The Beatles, he may as well have provided some voyeuristic thrills...

Little known fact: An enormous number of Lennon/McCartney original compositions were lost forever when Linda cleaned Paul McCartney's apartment for him while he was away.

It turns out all those old wrinkled scraps of paper with scribbling on them were original songs the two had written but never recorded. Somewhere in a UK landfill...

Professional grump Jack Parr scooped Ed Sullivan by showing the Beatles on his show first as a joke act (playing She Loves You) on Jan 3, 1964, via BBC footage. Then, he made fun of them.

All it did was excite kids. And since Parr ended up on the wrong side of history, NBC never talks about this. Even George Martin said Parr deserved credit for igniting kid's curiosity.

According to legend, Beatlemania taking off in the U.S. can be largely attributed to a 15-year-old Marylander named Marsha Albert. After seeing a news segment about the band, Albert called a local radio station in Washington, D.C., and asked, "Why can't we have music like that here in America?"

That station, WWDC, was later responsible for inflicting both Howard Stern and Doug "The Greaseman" Tracht upon American.

Paul McCartney once said that Maryland Chicken was his favorite dish.  Now he claims that he's vegetarian.

the Beatles broke up at Disney World? Gawrsh.....

I have a "factoid" about George....if the Saturday AM cartoon about the Beatles is true (yeah, I know
it wasn't), George's speaking voice sounded like Morocco Mole's.  (Secret Squirrel's sidekick.)

Get your facts straight.  It was Pink Floyd, and she was twerking at that Grammy show hullaballoo.  Or something.

Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Little known fact: An enormous number of Lennon/McCartney original compositions were lost forever when Linda cleaned Paul McCartney's apartment for him while he was away.

It turns out all those old wrinkled scraps of paper with scribbling on them were original songs the two had written but never recorded. Somewhere in a UK landfill...


Nope.  That was John, but not Yoko.  One of his Lost Weekend girlfriends, but I don't think it was May Pang.  In a US landfill.

Keep in mind that Linda was an art history major and a photographer.  Creative types don't throw out scraps of paper because they always intend to come back to them for inspiration or to see to them completion.  Linda would have understood that.

Paul never had an apartment.  He lived with Jane Asher's family in an attic on Wimpole Street (yes, that Wimpole Street) until he bought his St John Wood home in 1965.

It was Jane Asher I was thinking about. She supposedly threw out a notebook full of songs.

For as big as they were, they had a lot of shows that didnt sell out, like their second Shea Stadium show.

Meanwhile, a hack like Springsteen can sell out a dozen straight shows at Giants Stadium.

I started not liking of Lennon's solo music after I found out he liked beating his wives. He was a fake.
