Default Beatles quotes from press conferences


Question: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven?

Ringo: He`s great. Especially his poems.


Question: What do you think of the criticism that you`re not very good?

George: We`re not.

Ringo: What are you doing tonight?


Question: What do you do when you`re cooped up in a hotel room between shows?

George: We ice skate.


Question: Would you like to walk down the street without being recognised?

John: We used to do this with no money in our pockets, there`s no point in it.


Question: Are you scared when crowds scream at you?

John: More so in Dallas than in other places.


Question: What`s this about an annual illness, George?

George: I get cancer every year.


Question: Do you plan to record any anti-war songs?

John: All our songs are anti-war.


Question: Does all the adulation from teenage girls affect you?

John: When I feel my head start to swell, I look at Ringo and know perfectly well we`re not supermen.


Question: The French have not made their mind up about the Beatles. What do you think of them?

Paul: Oh, WE like the Beatles, they`re gear!


Question: Girls rushed towards my car because it had press identification and they thought I met you. How do you explain this phenomenon?

John: You`re lovely to look at!

John: No, we feed ourselves.


Question: Were you worried about the oversized roughnecks who tried to infiltrate the airport crowd on your arrival?

Paul: I thought of it.

Question: Who in the world would the Beatles like to meet more in the world than anybody else?

Ringo: The real Santa Claus.


Question: Is your popularity beginning to taper off?

Paul: I agree that our popularity has hit a peak. But I also agree with a man who said the same thing last year. And we were both wrong!


Question: Do you have any special advice for teenagers?

John: Don`t get pimples.


Question: Sorry to interupt you while you are eating, but what do you think you will be doing in five years time, when all this is over?

Ringo: Still eating.


Question: Has success spoiled the Beatles?

Paul: The great thing about it is that you don`t have big worries anymore, when you`ve got were we have - only little ones, like whether the plane is going to crash.


Question: What excuses do you have for your collarlength hair?

John: Well, it just grows out yer head!


Question: How do you feel about teenagers imitating you with Beatle wigs?

John: They are not imitating us, because we don`t wear Beatle wigs.


Question: Are you wearing wigs or real hair?

Ringo: Hey, where`s the police!
Paul: Take her out!
George: Our hair`s real, what about yours, lady?


Question: Are you going to get haircuts over in America?

Ringo: What do you mean? We got them yesterday!


Question: Does your hair require any special attention?

John: Inattention is the main thing.

Timeless classics, just like the Beatles themselves! This is just as fresh, funny and witty now as it was in 1964!

Then we will remember things we said today. Yeah.

This seems a bit prophetic.

If you watch the video of the Beatles' first trip to America, you will see in a hotel room scene where George tells somebody on the telephone that his "t'roat is feeling fine" and "how's your t'roat?" Talk about sadly ironic....now that part makes me kinda sad.
