Q: “Our guests this week on ‘Pop Chat’ are The Beatles — John, Paul, George and Ringo. Let’s start off with you, Ringo. Everybody knows that the Beatles are a Liverpool group, but were you all actually born in Liverpool?”

RINGO: “Yes, every one of us.”

Q: “Are you keeping your homes in Liverpool, or do you plan to move into London, or anything like that?”

RINGO: “I don’t think any of us are moving. We must have a base in London, you know, because we’re there more than we are in Liverpool at the moment. But we’re not moving our houses.”

Q: “John, over to you for a minute. You do alot of songwriting of late. Do you always work as a team?”

JOHN: “Well, mainly. All the better songs that we have written — the ones that anybody wants to hear — those were co-written.”

Q: “Do you write the words and music together, or does one of you write the words?”

JOHN: “Yeah, well… Sometimes half the words are written by me and he’ll finish them off. We go along a word each, practically.”

Q: “Did you write your new record release?”

JOHN: “Uhh… ‘She Loves You’? Yeah.”

PAUL: “Yeah.”

JOHN: “We wrote that two days before we recorded it, actually.”

PAUL: “We wrote it in a hotel room in Newcastle.”

Q: “This brings me to a question from one of your fans. How did the distinctive hairstyle come about?”

GEORGE: “Well, umm… I don’t think any of us had been bothered with having haircuts, and it was always long. Paul and John went to Paris and came back with it — something like this. And I went to the baths and came out with it like this.”

Q: “Another fan was anxious to know how you manage to get any private life. I mean — If you take a girl out, how do you avoid being recognized, Paul?”

PAUL: “Uhh, I don’t know… just sort of run.”

Q: “Now, John, I know you have very little time for anything but music at the moment. But if you had spare time — What sort of hobbies and sports do you enjoy?”

JOHN: “Well, none of us are very sporty, you know. The only sport we do bother with is swimming. We don’t count it as a sport, but… And hobbies are just writing songs.”
