The following are excerpts of interviews with the Beatles.
Reporter: Do you date much? Ringo: What are you doing tonight?
Reporter: Ringo, why do you think you get more fan mail than anyone else in the group? Ringo: I don't know. I suppose it's because more people write me.
Reporter: How did you find America? Ringo: We went to Greenland and make a left turn.
Reporter: Is it true you can't sing? John pointing to George: Not me. Him.
Reporter: Do you resent fans ripping up your sheets for souvenirs? Ringo: No, I don't mind. So long as I'm not in them while the ripping is going on.
Reporter: Do you like topless bathing suits? Ringo: We've been wearing them for years.
Reporter: Girls rushed toward my car because it had press identification on it and they thought I met you. How do you explain this phenomenon? John: You're lovely to look at.
Reporter: You were at the Playboy Club last night. What did you think of it? Paul: The Playboy and I are just good friends.
Reporter: There's a "Stamp Out the Beatles" movement underway in Detroit. What are you going to do about it? Paul: We're going to start a campaign to stamp out Detroit.
Reporter: Beethoven figures in one of your songs. What do you think of Beethoven? Ringo: He's great. Especially his poetry.
Reporter: Who thought up the name, Beatles? Paul: I thought of it. Reporter: Why? Paul: Why not?
Reporter: What do you think of the criticism that you are not very good? George: We're not.
Reporter: When you do a new song, how do you decide who sings the lead? John: We just get together and whoever knows most of the words sings the lead.
Reporter: 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.
Reporter: What's your reaction to a Seattle psychiatrist's opinion that you are a menace? George: Psychiatrists are a menace.
