Beatle links game.
« on: July 24, 2007, 11:08:00 AM »

This may be fun or it may be boring. Kind of a six degrees of seperation thing.
Example (and an extreme one) Beatles to Johny Depp. And once more god bless Wiki.
1. Beatles performed with Billy Preston.
2. who played with Red Hot Chilli Peppers
3. who used Rain Phoenix as a touring backing singer
4. who was the sister of River Phoenix
5. who was a friend of, and died in the nightclub owned by...Johny Depp.

I can do The Beatles to Harvey Keital in 4. (all from Wiki, working backwards of course.)

I did it in 2!

1. On Saturday, February 8, 1964, as part of the Beatles first visit to America, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr visited Central Park while entertaining photographers and members of the press. George Harrison stayed back at the group's suite at the Plaza Hotel, due to a bout with tonsillitis.

2. Harvey Keitel starred in a film called Prince Of Central Park.

Hope I'm understanding the rules correctly!  :B

Not bad. Your link with Central Park is a bit loose. Mine was
1. Beatles backed black singing group The Chants
2.who wrote ( a song I can't f*cking find now)
3. which was recorded by Earth Wind and Fire
4. who appeared in, and did the soundtrack for, the film That's The Way of The World, which starred...

All unneccesarily complicated I've course - I just remember E W & F covered Got To get You Into My Life.

LOL!

Too right it was loose! I'd would have been there forever! LOL ;D

But the links were there in the Wikepedia write-up about Harvey Keitel - I couldn't do it going the other way though; from Beatles to Harvey Keitel!

OK Mairi. How fast can you get to Marilyn?
I'm sure there are less tossy ones, but I've got (using people who've actually met):*
1. Beatles had a guitarist called George
2. Who met President Gerald Ford
3. Who served on the Warren Commission with Allen Dulles
4. who was head of the CIA under JFK
5. who poked Marilyn.

* to make it harder, otherwise you'll cream me.

Though I've just realised Marilyn probably met elvis.
