Surprised myself with eight out of fifteen. Regarding the first two questions, if his given first name at birth was James, it probably still is...and I CANNOT believe that His Lordship is going to be (or already is) eighty-one this year! At the risk of sounding a bit cheeky, m'lord, good on ya, mate!

Question #9 is wrong. Ram is not a solo album.
daDoctah JoeAllen 2 months ago
I think they mean it wasn't a Beatles album, and it wasn't a Wings album. It was credited to Paul and Linda McCartney, but Linda's participation was limited mainly to singing backing vocals.

Due to Ringo being away on a film shoot that day, I believe it was Old Brown Shoe. My all-time favorite George song!
