I've read just about everything about the Beatles over the years, and I've never heard this. Got any documentation?
Edit: Don't worry about the documentation. I've googled a dozen or so stories and they all source back to Dr. John Coleman, who is still insisting Paul McCartney died and was replaced by Phil Ackrill and that some German philosopher wrote all their lyrics and music. I'm sticking with the mass hysteria theory.
As far as reviews, I love them. They've paid off immensely, although more for hotels than products. But if there are hundreds of reviews on a product, I think you can get a pretty good feel for it, even if a few of them are bought and paid for. I particularly read the negative reviews. Often people are complaining about shipping or customer service, which indicates that the product is good assuming it arrives in one piece. And again, with hundreds of reviews, if 85% are 5s and 4s, you've got a pretty good idea about the product. I don't live by them, but I am influenced by them.
