The quote - "I've always fancied having a ladies hairdressing salon, you know, a string of them in fact. Strutting around with me stripes and me tails, you know, 'would you like a cup of tea, Madam?'" - was from the same interview in which John, when asked how long he thought The Beatles' fame would last, replied "You can be big-headed and say yeah, we're going to last 10 years. But as soon as you've said that you think... we're lucky if we last three months."
Possibly Ringo's comment was just a throw away Ringo-ism that the BBC happened to jump on, and decided to film him in a salon to illustrate the point - the other Beatles obviously thought it hilarious!
Can you name two Beatles who DIDN'T play bass on the recording "Golden Slumbers"?
Extra credit if you can name THREE who didn't ... but need to give an unimpeachable reference!
John, and George, because they're not playing anything on it. And Ringo.
Well, I think George Martin may disagree with you! On Anthology #9, George Martin says that the piano and bass were recorded simultaneously, and since Paul is playing the piano, he's not playing the bass!
So, running with that, it seems either John or George is playing the bass. The three of them couldn't remember which one it was.
Fiendish Thingy: Thanks Bobber. I'm good thanks. Quiet on here for the last few months. I see Al has gone all 'Facebook' and is attracting new members. No bad thing. Are you going to the annual Beatleweek in Liverpool this year? Not long now 10 weeks or so. See you there?

Bobber: Not sure. It's an expensive trip for me plus I'm starting a new job around that time.

Amadeus: Hey all. Not been frequenting here very much lately. Between burying people, helping sick people and feeling crap myself, Me and Mrs. A. have been weighed under. Hoping to get a bit more out of that rut so I can focus back on the fun things I used to focus

The End: Hey all - come along to the 12th Annual Beatle Forum meet up - it's in The Grapes at midday on Saturday 24th August! Will be great to see some new faces as I'm fed up with the old ones!
