    Every day there's another unanswered question concerning the Beatles.
    Maybe we can gather them all together in one place and address them here. I'll start.

    1. On the White Album "Why Don't We Do It In The Road?" is followed by "I Will." Coincidence or cheeky?

    Been noticing a possible reversal in the opening lyrics "How does it feel-to-be one of the beau-ti-ful people."

    Coincidence or intentional?
  5. Why was Pete not inducted into the HOF

    I think a lot of the sequencing on The White Album with the song titles was intentional. Three consecutive animal titles ("Blackbird"/"Piggies"/"Rocky Raccoon") seems like too much of a stretch to be a coincidence.

    What if the Beatles had broken up after Pepper? Never mind.

    Is there any bootleg without screaming?

    Do you count George arguing with Paul at Twickenham as screaming? Probably not. But I think Yoko does her part somewhere in those 30 days.

    On my fantasy 3 LP version, I add "Hey Bulldog" to the streak. :D

    If we're doing any re-arranging, I would also put "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey," "Martha My Dear" and "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill" in the animal sequence.

    Ringo was the oldest and shortest Beatle. Is that weird ?

    I think this thread should disavow ANY question that starts off: "What if...?" THOSE DON'T COUNT!

    My gut says that it's because Pete was part of the Beatles' pre-history, rather than their prime run. "The Beatles" as inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame begins with "Love Me Do”.

    Not to sound too sarcastic, but Pete was so consequential that the major stipulation in the band earning their Parlophone contract was "get rid of the guy behind the drums".

    Are you calling Martha an animal?

    See, that's a question.

    I don't know, but I Will is one of my favorite songs on The White Album.

    Then why does he call her his deer? Maybe it should be Martha My dog?:D

    Is George turning up the master volume or the gain on his amp when the police arrive during the 2nd Get Back on the rooftop?

    What about that real Nowhere Man? Are there imitations?

    George Martin actually said these "animal" titles were put together on purpose.
  25. my point is he was a member of the band he met the halls criteria he should have been included just like signe anderson a founding member of the airplane and she was excluded i will go to my grave using these two as examples
