Each week, for ten weeks, I'll be posting ten questions in ten separate categories, including pictures, video's, and soundclips. Some will be easy, and some pretty tough, so you'll need to get your thinking caps on.
Two points will be given for every correct answer, unless specified otherwise. For instance, in the case of a two part question, points will be awarded accordingly. Ten points will be awarded for 'The Big Finish' question. A further five points will be awarded to anyone who answers all questions correctly.Please do not post your answers on the forum. PM them to me with the heading 'Mastermind 3', no later than 12 noon GMT on Sunday 30 March.
You may PM me any corrections to your answers as long as I receive them before the closing time of that particular round. Round 1 finishes Sunday 6 April at 12 noon GMT. Just send the corrected answer(s) not the whole thing.
Any queries can be made on the other thread: Beatles Mastermind - Notes & Queries. http://www.dmbeatles.com/forums/b-games/m-1204850121/
Round 3 of Beatles Mastermind. Beginnings
"With The Beatles" saw George Harrison's debut as a composer (apart from the instrumental "Cry For A Shadow" which he wrote with Lennon and was released on different Tony Sheridan records here and there prior to Beatlemania). The song was composed in Bournemouth in August 1963 where they were fulfilling a six nights engagement. It was a response to a friend of their's who kept annoying George by asking him why he didn't write songs by himself not to have to sing Lennon-McCartney's anymore. The answer was "Don't Bother Me". What was the name of this Liverpool first days' friend?Beatlemania

Each day I'll add a section to the picture, but the points available will go down. The sooner you guess it, the more points you'll get. I'll allow everyone one guess per day. PM me with your answer with the heading 'Picture'. If I don't reply it means you're wrong!
