I glanced at a ‘Beatles’ poster on my way into the theatre. Unknown outside of Liverpool they received polite applause then stepped back into the shadows as Helen Shapiro, the star of the show came on stage. That night the Beatles played backup, but the ‘magical experience’ which Paul McCartney speaks of was about to enter the Beatles recording studio as they began their rise to fame.
I visited Liverpool several times in those days sailing the Mersey, traveling to and from Ireland, the Isle of Man, the British Midlands, Oxfordshire, Ashford in Kent, Bricket Wood, near St. Albans, Herts. The City of London, and the South Coast of England.
Paul At The White House
At a White House concert Paul McCartney shared how ‘Yesterday’ had come to him in a dream! After two weeks of attempting to find who had written the song, “I decided to claim it.” Many of today’s ‘song writers’ have had similar experiences.
‘Yesterday’ became the most popular song ever, recorded by over 600 artists, and will bring in royalties along with hundreds of Lennon&McCartney songs over forty years, causing him to become the first Pop Music Billionaire!
Hungry For Success
After suffering years of financial hardship in Liverpool and in Hamburg, Germany, where they often lacked enough money to buy food, the Beatles were hungry for success. One story from back then tells of Lennon and McCartney arguing over whether they should spend an extra penny to pay for jam on their toast at breakfast and stealing loaves of bread in order to eat!
Even after having hit records in Britain, they were forced to pay almost all their income in taxes, inspiring George Harrison’s song ‘Tax Man.’ Paul found himself low on funds with him and his family living in a partly renovated farmhouse in Scotland.
It was not until they arrived in the U.S., where the tax laws allowed them to keep their incomes as long as the money does not leave the country that The Beatles became wealthy.
Becoming A Bad Influence
Unknown to the Beatles, with their joking good humor and open admissions of pot- smoking, cocaine use, they ‘were chosen’ to help lead many of the once stable British and American youth into the drug culture of today, causing the destruction of many young people, and causing endless heartache for parents!
I remember living in England in the sixties where even in small towns young people would be found each morning lying dead by the roadsides because of overdosing.
In the ‘Beatles Anthology’ they make several references to drug use. George Harrison mentioned smoking pot as John drove them in his psychedelically painted Rolls Royce filled with pot smoke as he picked up Paul and George on the way to recording sessions, falling out of the Rolls at the Abbey Road studio. George talked about being shown his brain tissue, c r a w l i n g, and vowing off mind-altering drugs at that time.
Lennon The Rebel
John Lennon played the rebel in his early music career and was reportedly unhappy with the humorous image the Beatles were given particularly in the U.S., having preferred the ‘Bad Boy’ image, which the Rolling Stones maintained.
He may have taken the Beatles name from the biker gang which Lee Marvin used in a movie. Lennon changed the spelling to Beatles to reflect the beat of their music, which became known as the Mersey Beat, with a local magazine using the name of the Mersey river flowing through Liverpool.
It was reported that before his tragic death he had suffered a long period of drug addiction, during which time he infrequently left his home.
Paul has said that he will no longer smoke pot, the reason given is that he does not want to set a bad example to his own younger children. This was allegedly an everyday habit, according to an x-wife.
Smoking dope no doubt freed his mind to receive the songs which he claimed, rewarding him with a billion dollars for his loyalty to setting the world a bad example perhaps innocently so but with the same tragic results.
Clapton And Jagger
Eric Clapton another British gentleman just had to record the song ‘COCAINE’ for our generation which still plays today and has probably paid millions. Why did you have to do that Eric? No conscious at all about influencing the young to avoid addiction???
Of course you are the guy who accepted George Harrison’s hospitality with invites to his home. And what did you do there, oh yes you stole his wife! Not the act of an English gentleman with good character! Enjoy your millions Eric that is all you have coming.
Just as Mick Jagger said when he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, “A reward for twenty years of BAD BEHAVIOR.”
So, Who Writes The Songs And Who Is Responsible For All Of This?
Paul might like to know who gave Lennon and McCartney their songs and The Beatles their success, influencing society around the world in the use of illegal drugs while singing along?
He also talked openly about an earlier cocaine habit which no doubt has also influenced others. Paul has been a ‘Lucky Man’ to have lived beyond age ‘Sixty Four’ when so many young people he and the Beatles influenced did not.
Read these revealing words of a song written by one of the Beach Boys, “I’ve been alive forever… and I wrote the very first song… my music will make you dance, make you feel that you wanna take a chance, so come along with me…! I write the songs, I write the songs”!
The Rolling Stones ‘Sympathy For The Devil’ takes you through recorded history from the crucifixion of Christ, to the murder of the Czar of Russia and his family, and the assassination of President Kennedy saying “Pleased to meet you, won’t you guess my name?”
The Prince of The Power of The Air
A being known as the ‘Prince of the power of the air’ literally broadcasts the attitudes expressed in our music, and writes the songs that make the whole world sing.
He became the original rebel! Believe it or believe it not Paul YOU have been used to influence two generations!
You Need To Protect Yourself
The songs which come to many in the music industry are fed to them in order to take us on a trip, to build up our independence from our parents, and from the laws that God gave us to ensure our happiness and success in life. So we are not dragged down generation by generation.
Be aware to protect yourself from the latest epidemic of heroin addiction! Only six weeks of heroin use makes YOU a heroin ADDICT. Please DO NOT TRY THIS TOTALLY ADDICTIVE SUBSTANCE, chances are YOU WILL NOT SURVIVE!
