Some strange and mundane facts about The Beatles

'Love Me Do' reached no. 17 in the British charts in December, 1962, which, though being easily The Beatles least successful single, was the highest placed single by any group at the time.

'Julia' was the last song recorded on 'The Beatles' album by John Lennon. He taped it alone on October 13th, 1968.

Renowned keyboardist Nicky Hopkins had the unique distinction of being the only man to feature on records by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who.

Paul McCartney's father Jim was a cotton salesman.

Ringo Starr almost emigrated to Texas to become a country musician.

German photographer, and a friend and fan of The Beatles from their Hamburg days, Jürgen Vollmer, had the original Beatles hairstyle, which the band liked, and he was the first to cut their hair in the famous moptop style.

A burst appendix and pleurisy kept Ringo in hospital for three years as a child.

Paul was always a versatile musician, and he contributed guitar on 'Ticket To Ride', and drums on 'The Ballad Of John And Yoko' - both UK number one singles.

The Beatles last live set in Britain was on Sunday, May 1st 1966, at the Empire Pool, Wembley, London.

In Cleveland, Ohio, and Kansas City, Missouri, the group had to temporarily seek sanctuary after excited fans invaded the stage.

'What's The New Mary Jane' was an experimental John track which failed to make 'The White Album', and has never been released. Another Beatles title with a girl's name which was never released was 'Suzy Parker'.

John & Yoko's last bed-in for peace was in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on May 29th to June 2nd, 1969.

'Not Known' was an early title for George Harrison's 'Only A Northern Song'.

Songs which were originally destined for Beatles albums, but ended up on individual solo albums after the group split up, included George's 'Isn't It A Pity', John's 'Gimme Some Truth' and 'Child Of Nature ('Jealous Guy')', and Paul's 'Maybe I'm Amazed'.

Paul recorded a song with Steve Miller in May 1969. Entitled 'My Dark Hour', it was released as a Steve Miller Band single in June of that year. McCartney was credited as Paul Ramon, and the single consisted of only him and Miller playing all the instruments.

The rumour that Paul had died in 1966 first surfaced in the U.S. In 1969, an interview by BBC journalist, Chris Drake, with McCartney, at his Mull of Kintyre farm, kind of proved otherwise.

John returned his MBE medal to the queen on November 25th, 1969, as a protest against the Vietnam War, and managed to get more publicity for his peace crusade.
