TMI Tuesday.....





















.


A Mr. James Morrisson of Paris France asks......


"Dear Mr. Knowitall...I've heard that Paul McCartney is DEAD! Can this be true? And can you shed a little light on this old rumor"?


Dear Jim...Of Course I Can!!


I remember this incident very well back when it originally started in 1969. I was a sophomore in college. FM-Stereo was just a fledgling technology at the time, and a couple of Detroit stations were going to air programs discussing the "Paul is Dead" controversy. The key was to get out all the Beatles Albums you had, and have a turntable that you could play the records backwards with. And let me tell you this, I'm merely scratching the surface of all of the clues regarding Paul's death.

* First pic, cover of Abbey Road. Obviously a funeral procession. John is the preacher, Ringo the pall bearer, Paul the corpse (you are not buried with shoes), and George the grave digger. If you could blow up the license plate of the parked VW 'Beatle' on the street, it says 28IF. (Paul would have been 28 IF he were alive)!!

*2nd pic...Magical Mystery Tour. Notice the outstretched arms of The Walrus, as in crucifiction? One of the lyrics of a later song named "Glass Onion" states..'Here's another clue for you all, The Walrus was Paul'. Up to that point, everyone assumed it was John!!! Plus read the name plate of the military man that Paul is dressed as in that Album..I WAS!!!!

*3rd pic..Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Everyone is obviously standing overlooking a Funeral Bier. A very ominous hand is placed over Pauls head. On the Bier is an array of flowers shaped like a Left Handed guitar...Paul was a Lefty! A patch on Paul's arm reads OPD. Officially Pronounced Dead!!!

There are overt clues as well in the lyrics...

*As I said before in the song 'Glass Onion' The walrus is a symbol of death, and a Glass Onion is a coffin with a clear top.

*Eleanor Rigby.." Father McKenzie, wiping the the dirt from his hands as he walks from the grave". The original verse was supposed top be Father McCartney...hehehe

* "Strawberry Fields Forever"..At the end end of the song there is a line of mumbling that sounds like...'I Buried Paul'. John always claimed that he said..'I'm very bored'..

* the song..'A Day In The Life'...."he blew his mind out in a car, he didn't notice that the light had changed, a group of people gathered stood and stared....

* 'You Know My Name"...After the cuckoo clock chimes 5 times, a phone number is read off, if you were to call the number a voice says..'Beware of Abbey Road".

Backward Clues...

*Blue Jay Way'...Played backwards...'Paul is Bloody'.

*Revolution #9...When the words..number 9, number 9, number 9, is played backwards... 'Turn me On Dead Man'..Turn me on dead man, turn me on dead man.!!!

*I'm so tired...When the mumbling at the end is reversed, it says..."Paul is dead, miss him miss him miss him!"

*"I Am The Walrus'...When the ending is played backwards, it says..'Ha Ha Paul is Dead'!

Wow!!!! That brought back some memories!!
.
Good question Jim!!
You can draw your own conclusions, or you can read this...here!
All this remembering has made Mr. Knowitall weary!
I bid you Adieu...

Huh...and I thought that was an OPP patch on his shoulder. Must be my Canadian showing. ;)

Me said...

Oh, and YAHTZEE! :)

...Although I still don't know why. I think you need to do a 55 about it. :P

My young teen boys will love this. They are big Beatles fans, and just asked this week if all the Beatles were dead. Of course, that must have been a double of Paul on Public Television getting a lifetime achievement award from Obama, and singing "Michelle, ma belle" to the first lady.....

Scott said...

lol now you're just freaking me out lol

I LOVE the Beatles!

Thom said...

I'll be damed! Backward clues. Who would have thought. Pure genius.

KB said...

I LOVE the Beatles. I saw an interview with Paul a few weeks ago and he said it was really warm on the day of the shoot so he took off his sandals and decided to keep them off.

Me said...

Ha! Just read through the article you linked to (really interesting, btw!) and guess what? It *is* an OPP patch. Not that I've ever had a run-in with those boys in blue, you understand... :)

Serena said...

Wow, that's a lot of information! No wonder it made Mr. Knowitall weary. Sleep well!;)

Boonsong said...

Paul McCartney isn't dead, but he has been stiffed for a huge divorce settlement so he probably wishes he was dead (say "Aye" if you've been there).
Thanks for an amusing post.

All the best, Boonsong

You know my elderly brain cannot handle such complicated things at midnight. I should have read this in the morning when I first saw it....perhaps I shall try it again tomorrow.

Some dedicated Beatles fan with FAR too much time and imagination on their hands.

I love the Beatles. I'm a huge fan but I do know about lots of hidden messages in their music (backwards playing).

Too much acid fucks up any musical genius' mind (including Lennon and McCartney)

the walking man said...

Scots Lass...can you define "too much?" I need to know if my mind if fucked up. Though I admit I have never payed any musical instrument.

Nessa said...

I just channeled John the other day and he told me Paul had been in heaven several years before John.

Eric Alder said...

If Paul really died back in '69, they sure found a talented dead-ringer, both physically and vocally.

I think it's far more likely that this was all an elaborate hoax perpetrated by the band, who were well-known (especially at that time) for wanting to 'shake things up a bit' and while garnering publicity in the process.

Shrinky said...

Soooooo, gee - Beatrice is NOT Stella's half sister, and Beatrice's ma was NEVER Stella's evil step-ma, after all.. meaning all the inheritance goes to Stella?? I'd get the police involved, if I was her!

The Thirteenth Crossing said...

Akelamalu said...

Cazzie!!! said...

Claudia said...

lol - had a good laugh...and now some beatle's song start to well up my throat...hope my teens won't think i have taken some drugs when i start to sing "we all live in a yellow submarine....yellow submarine...."

G-Man said...

HA!!! Claudia...At the end of that song Ringo shouts Paul is a Queer, Paul is a Queer.

Jannie Funster said...

Could the pope mobile be some kind of glass onion too? And he's really dead and propped up like Bernie in Weekend At Bernie's?

Hmm. And is he (or was he not at the time of the original pope mobile) named Pope John - PAUL.

Hmmn.

very interesting indeed.
