The apocryphal "5th Beatle" SARS was kicked out of the Beatles before they signed their first recording contract with EMI. The first rumblings of discontent in the band began over Paul's complaints that his tambourine playing consistently fell behind the beat, but the last straw came when the lads discovered he had misrepresented himself as a Liverpudlian skiffle musician, when he was in fact an infectious respiratory ailment originating in Asia.--Excert from Sir Ainsley Bunsingtonsworth's Fab Forgeries: Things I Made Up About the Beatles
UPDATE: An anonymous Beets tipper (ABT) has informed me that SARS is the name of a local street-sticker-graf artist who fancies himself somewhat of a Lennon-esque dandy.
Damn, I was really hoping to figure out what that sticker meant. Alas, the sticker you saw is the same sticker I saw, and you are just as confused as I am.
Even more mystifying is the appearance of the second 'S' in "Bunsingtonsworth".
