I came across this thin paperback as I was processing some material for eBay…it’s a compilation of black & white photos and short interviews and quotes with the Fab Four, and I found a few of these Q&As a bit interesting:

Q: Do you like topless bathing suits?
RINGO: We’ve been wearing them for years.

Q: How come you were turned back by immigration?
JOHN: We had to be deloused.

Q: Why don’t you smile, George?
GEORGE: I’ll hurt my lips.

Q: Do you like being the Beatles?
JOHN: Yes, or we’d be the Rolling Stones.

Q: What do you think of the criticism you are not very good?
GEORGE: We’re not.

Q: What do you believe is the reason you are the most popular singing group today?
JOHN: We’ve no idea. If we did, we’d get four long-haired boys, put them together and become their managers.

Q: Ringo, why do you wear two rings on each hand?
RINGO: Because I can’t fit them through my nose.

Q: What’s this about an annual illness, George?
GEORGE: I get cancer every year.

Q: What kind of music do you like?
PAUL: Colored American groups.

Q: Why do you think you get more fan mail than anyone else in the group?
RINGO: I dunno. Suppose it’s because more people write me.

Q: What about your future?
JOHN: It looks nice.
