In Sept. of 1966 there were rumors that Paul McCartney died in a car crash. He was not seen for a couple months but all of a sudden appeared. But this new Paul even though looking similar was taller and a little older and facial features were different. And the new Paul was right handed while the old Paul was left handed. And the band all of a sudden changed. George and John never sang right by “Paul” as they did in the early years. Paul and George were best pals from childhood but that changed. Paul and John quit writing songs together and had open animosity.
The Beatles from the start were a British Secret Service project. The goals were to introduce Eastern religion, drugs, and promote British propaganda. When John said the Beatles were now more famous then Jesus – he said it because that was their intention and they accomplished it. Sargent Pepper was a real person. In 1967 it was as the song goes “20 years ago today Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play” – 1947 was the beginning of the BSS. The album cover of Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band depicts many secret service personnel.
John Lennon is still alive. You need to only look at the “Lennon impersonator” Mark Staycer. He is the right age, looks remarkably like him, sings like him, owns tons of Beatles memorabilia, etc. He was the star of a John Lennon movie called ‘Let Him Be’ which has since been made unavailable. His assassination by Mark Chapman was faked because he was no longer needed.
Paul was probably just injured in the car accident. His twin brother Mike maybe stepped in for awhile. And also likely a Paul look-a-like was used.
The Beatles like most all famous entertainers achieved their fame because they are from families of wealth with connections. They were very talented of course. But most people would be talented too if they had private music lessons starting at an early age.
No expense was spared in the making of the Beatles. A team of songwriters were responsible for probably most all of their hit songs.
I had the privilege of meeting George Harrison in the late 80’s.
