* A lot of these seem to center on Ringo for some reason. The day after the rooftop concert, Ringo, who was famously self-deprecating about his skills, received a postcard from one of his bandmates. It read: "You are the greatest drummer in the world. Really." This was from ''Paul'', who was notoriously hard to please. Ringo ''published'' that postcard, along with many others from fellow Beatles, in the book ''Postcards from the Boys''

--->'''John Lennon:''' "Ringo was a star in his own right in Liverpool before we even met. He was a professional drummer who sang and performed and had Ringo Starr-time and he was in one of the top groups in Britain but especially in Liverpool before we even had a drummer. So Ringo's talent would have come out one way or the other as something or other. I don't know what he would have ended up as, but whatever that spark is in Ringo that we all know but can't put our finger on... whether it is acting, drumming or singing I don't know... there is something in him that is projectable and he would have surfaced with or without the Beatles."

Added DiffLines:

** In his final interview, John Lennon didn't hesitate to heap praise on Ringo.

Added DiffLines:

* The fact that they refused to play in front of a segregated audience. This was back in the damn 60's mind you.

** This may have also been an in-joke; some time earlier, when an interviewer asked "Is Ringo the best drummer in the world?", John answered "He's not the best drummer in the Beatles."
** [[IncrediblyLamePun He may not have been the "Best" drummer, but he was the "Starr" drummer...]]

Added DiffLines:

* Ringo was once asked what was the best thing about being in the Beatles. He immediately answered, "Having three brothers."


* "Dear Prudence" was written for a real girl (Mia Farrow's sister), who had had a mental breakdown while studying transcendental meditation in India at the same time as the boys were. She locked herself in her hut and refused to come out or speak to anyone until John coaxed her out with the song.

Added DiffLines:

*John Lennon’s comment from Apple Corps rooftop in 1969, he said,”I’d like to say thank you, on behalf of the group and ourselves, that I hope we passed the audition.”


* GeorgeHarrison's cover of "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea", from the last album he recorded before he died, is, while slightly lacking in lyrical depth (though it's by no means shallow), one of the most cheery, heartwarming songs ever made.

Added DiffLines:

** While it can count as both heartwarming and a TearJerker, Julian has stated several times that Paul was [[ParentalSubstitute more of a father and mentor to him]] than [[DisappearedDad John]] ever was.

Added DiffLines:

** Paul told the story of how he and John were once having a bitter argument about something, which had got the point of name-calling -- and then John paused, lowered his glasses, looked at Paul over the top of them and said [[NoHeroToHisValet "It's only me, you know."]]
