USA Today. No excerpts. Just title and link.
Just guessing George would get a big laugh out of that!
Article states that “ladybug” beetles and other species killed the tree. Please note that “ladybugs” are carnivorous.
The Beatles probably smoked as much Malathion and paraquat as anyone in their day.
probably wouldn’t kill these beetles either.
Ono you di’nt.
I was surprised and amazed that he died proactically alone in a hospital bed
The Beatles were a gift from heaven. I wish Paul and John would have worked out their differences and collaborated on more stuff. Seperately they were good, but together the sum was much greater than 4. They each complimented each other and magnified each others brilliance.
Irony can be pretty ironic sometimes.
The Beatles quit at the perfect time. The Law of Diminishing Returns was setting in big-time on them.
RE: George Harrison memorial tree killed by... beetles
Which reminds me of a question I’ve always wanted to ask (now that beetles are killing a Beatle tree :)
Who thought of the name - Beatles anyway, and why?
Die young and leave a handsome corpse. Was that Jim Morrison? He certainly avoided the diminishing return law.
>>Who thought of the name - Beatles anyway, and why?<<
I am sure this “interwebz” thing can answer your question...

It could have been worse. They were originally the Quarrymen, and then the Silver Beatles.
I look at the lawn and I see it is burning,,,While My Pesticide Gently Weeps.
“On March 1957 John Lennon formed a skiffle group called The Quarrymen. Lennon met Paul McCartney on 6 July 1957; Lennon added him to the group a few days later. On 6 February 1958, George Harrison was invited to watch the group. Harrison joined the Quarrymen as lead guitarist after a rehearsal in March 1958.
Lennon and McCartney both played rhythm guitar during that period. After original Quarrymen drummer Colin Hanton left the band in 1959, the band had a high turnover of drummers. Lennon’s friend Stuart Sutcliffe joined on bass in January 1960.
The Quarrymen went through a progression of names, including “Johnny and the Moondogs” and “Long John and The Beatles”. Sutcliffe suggested the name “The Beetles” as a tribute to Buddy Holly and The Crickets. The band changed their name to “The Beatles”.
She loves trees, yeah, yeah, yeah
And with a love like that
You know you should be glad.
Isn’t it good Norwegian Wood?
