hahhahaha i think being barefott in the street is fun(hint abbey road)
We went back there and they had come and hacked off every inoculated arm. There they were in a pile. A pile of little arms. And I remember... I... I... I cried. I wept like some grandmother. I wanted to tear my teeth out. I didn't know what I wanted to do. And I want to remember it. I never want to forget it. I never want to forget. And then I realized... like I was shot... like I was shot with a diamond... a diamond bullet right through my forehead. And I thought: My God... the genius of that.

i remember living through this. it made great fun studying the album covers looking for all the clues, and, there really was sort of uneasiness about it all, the fabbers being such societal cutting edge icons and all. it didn't take long for it all to subside. not too long after '69 the beatles were no more. the rest as they say is history.
uncle paulie puts on a show that shouldn't be missed but he's lost credibility with this ex-devotee. the arrogance associated with the fairly recent 'i want my name first' song writing thing with yoko really did kill him for me. parts of my youth just keep eroding away. sometimes i'm not sad at all about it.
i was partial to george anyway. that loss was really tough for me to take.

I Wanna bring this thread back
I read "The Walrus Was Paul"
A book on the Beatles death clues
I think that this was very obviously a hoax......but
I think that the Beatles put them in the albums on purpose
I mean.....it worked brilliantly
about 12 out of the 20 best selling albums of the 60's
Are Beatles records
Partly because the Beatles made amazing music but
also partly because people were very curious to find the next "clue"
I think that this was possibly the best thought out and
Most successful publicity stunt ever
Some of these clues are really thought out
I didnt click the link so this may be common knowledge but
My favorite clue is
If you hold a straight edge mirror up to the "Lonely Hearts" emblem in
the middle of the drum on Sgt. Pepper
It clearly says
1 ONE IX HE ^ DIE
the "^" points directly at paul
Fun reading though. If interested read
"The Walrus Was Paul"
The Great Beatles Death Clues

Most Beatle fans back then knew or at least sensed it was a hoax. Whether the Fab Four originated it, I don't know. But there's no doubt they intentionally planted phony clues in their music and on their album covers, though I don't think it resulted in a substantial boost in their already enormous record sales. Those who were interested enough in the Beatles to care if Paul was dead or not, were going to buy their albums anyway.
It is TRUE that they also did some "backward masking". If you play backwards the part of "Revolution #9" where it keeps repeating "number 9, number 9, number 9"---you'll clearly hear a voice saying "Turn me on, dead man". Several friends and myself all heard it plain as day.
