I don't think he ever said "Beatle Bill" in that setting. He was saying, "I see Beatle Phil makin' a pig of himself" in reference to Phil Spector sitting across the table having breakfast.

Phil Spector and John were known to read the industry press about which records were on charts in multiple countries, so there could have been some truth to what they were joking about.
