Delicious food more than once gave participants The beatles ideas for their musical masterpieces. The name of the ensemble itself appeared due to the flambé dessert, and many hits with culinary overtones still delight fans of the group.
From the moment of its emergence in 1957 to 1960, the group changed many names: from “Johnny and the Moon Dogs” to “Silver Beetles”. But once Lennon had a strange dream.
The man sitting on the flaming cake said: «Let there be beetles.» Impressed by the dream, Lennon persuaded his colleagues to name the group like this: “Bugs”.
True, he replaced the letter “e” with “a” in the word, receiving a neologism, which became the final name.
