You never read all about the cryptic messages confirming it? A couple of them if memory serves me. At the end of the song "Strawberry Fields Forever " says "I buried Paul". Another songs played backwards have references and the Abby Road album cover was somehow tied to it. I remember playing these songs backwards in the day to hear it. I never took it seriously, but then by the time I had heard about it, he was touring with his Wings band.

I must have lived in a bubble because I've heard none of this before today.

Or, as Dr. Demento might say, "The Spastic Phono Band"...

If you were born in the 50's, you had to be glued to the tube the first night they were on The Ed Sullivan Show.

+1

Another Paul reference was in "Glass Onion" from the White Album...

As for Frank, "We're Only In It For The Money" was/is a classic".

For those of you who have plenty of time on your hands, here's an interesting link. It's about the anomalies heard on some Beatles songs.

What Goes On - The Beatles Anomalies List

According to this site, there is an expletive at about the 3 minute mark of "Hey Jude". I have listened to my CDs and don't hear it, or at least cannot make it out. But I enjoy reading about this stuff.

We were in our twenties, living in Falmouth on Cape Cod, with two young kids and a 60 hour week job... and considered ourselves "sophisticated" about music. We were put off by the smarmy longhairs from England and couldn't understand why they should be popular. At the time 1963, perhaps, no one in the US had ever heard the music, so it was just reputation that preceded their first trip to the US.

The big thing at the time, was to listen to the radio for current music. I can remember listening to WBZ in Boston... DJ , or announcer Gary La Pierre, talking about an impending visit. Now, this may sound strange, but I recall the station playing a purported few songs from an album that had not been released... with the sound masked by a baackground Buwaa Buwaa sound that meant the song couldn't be recorded. If it weren't so clear in memory, I'd say it didn't make sense. The lead in to these unintelligible clips started several days earlier, so the airing had a huge listening audience.

Sometime thereafter, we bought what I'd describe as an "el cheapo" album with the four Beatles in suits on the cover. As I recall, it was on a VJ album. We had that until 1990's, when it became watersoaked in a flood along with a hundred or so other LP's.

Can remember waiting for the first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, as well as the to-do that surrounded the Beatles' landing at Logan International. I am sure that we had no appreciation for these hippies at the time, and didn't consider their noise, to be music. We were pretty snobby I suppose... more into Johnny Mathis and Jackie Gleason. The Beatles would fade into history, (we thought)... and didn't want our kids to be influenced by anyone who took drugs. It wasn't until many years later that we found out about "Lucy in the Sky". Drugs were something in the news, that we talked about, but never came into our lives.

Thinking of the Beatles as "history" makes us feel ancient.

You don't mean that it was code for LSD do you ? It was actually named after a drawing Johns son did of a classmate named Lucy.

I was 5, I guess at the time. My sister had a Close-n-Play and the 45: I Wanna Hold Your Hand. She went on to get pretty much every new album as they came out. I need to thank her again for her Beatle passion. Without that, I would not have the appreciation of the band nor of music in general, that I have enjoyed my entire life.

To risk sounding like an old fart, those were the days--when you looked forward to their next single or album, brought home the new album, cut into the cellophane wrapper, took out the pristine mint-condition black record, inhaled the fragrance of a new LP, and heard for the 1st time some new fantastic music. Meanwhile, you saw them evolve visually, from B&W into 3-D color. What they accomplished aurally and visually in just seven years is unequaled.

Sgt Pepper (released mid '67) was the first album with death clues, so Paul probably died in '66. He blew his mind out in a car.
