Stephen King, writer: Stephen King, the writer used two lines from the Beatles song "Drive My Car" as the epigraph to the chapter "LeBay Passes" in his 1983 novel "Christine." King's novel "The Shining" was originally called "The Shine, inspired by John Lennon's song, "Instant Karma." King changed the title when he learned the term "the shine" was derogatory to blacks.

PLACES
Menlove Avenue: John lived at number 251 Menlove Avenue with his Aunt Mimi And Uncle George prior to and following the death of his mother Julia. John called the house "Mendips."

PepperLand: Fictional village which is the setting for the movie "Yellow Submarine"

Plaza Hotel: New York Hotel in which The Beatles stayed during their first visit to America in 1964. The exclusive establishment booked their reservation under the assumption that The Beatles were British businessmen, but were soon loudly awakened to the truth when they found thousands of teenagers camped outside the hotel during the group's entire stay. The Beatles and their entourage occupied suites 1209 thru 1216.

Flying Cow: The name of the bar in Ringo's Weybridge home.

F.P.S.H.O.T: Abbreviation for Friar Park Studio Henley-On-Thames. This recording studio, located in George's home, is where George recorded the albums DARK HORSE, 33 1/3, and GEORGE HARRISON
THINGS
Beatle Haircut: Bangs and hair covering the ears became the Beatles most recognisable trademark as they started their climb to fame. This style, which was to revolutioniise men's fashion, at first horrified parents of "clean-cut" teenagers in 1964.
The style came about when The Beatles were working in Germany in the early sixties. Astrid Kircherr, the fiancee of then Beatle Stu Sutcliffe, convinced Stu to brush his hair forward in the "French" style, as did many of her art student friends. After the Beatles stopped laughing at Stu, they too decided to give it a try. John was the last holdout, not wishing to abandon the "greasy look," but finally relented while visiting Paris with Paul a few months later.

New York Times Neediest Fund: Organisation set up to aid the poor at Christmastime, to which Paul and Linda donated $10,000 in 1979.
