The Beatles Never Existed

#1  Postby Nautilidae » May 16, 2015 4:49 pm

http://thebeatlesneverexisted.com

We who began researching this in 2011 consider it to be a serious subject, not a joke, and this site is here to expose the actions of those who exploited these young men -- in whatever form they actually appeared to us -- and defrauded us their fans. It is to defend the honor of everyone involved who did not take part in it willingly. It has become apparent to us in this extensive and painstaking research that there were never just four individual people known as "John", "Paul", "George", and "Ringo" who comprised one Rock & Roll band known as "The Beatles", and rose to fame as the world's first supergroup. For all intents and purposes as far as we can tell, no one such group ever existed.

We are here to explore whether the original individuals themselves ever existed (and if so, what may have happened to them and by whom), but have not been able thus far to calculate how many of each persona were fraudulently presented to the world, or whether there were originals and what may have happened to them.

Please join us at the forum if you care to and can be open-minded. This is a highly-emotional topic for many of us, and most of us have very strong feelings about it. We have started this work because we were once fans to varying degrees, and many of us still listen to and enjoy their music.

The world would be a better place if The Beatles never existed.

The pictures seem convincing, but then his writings shows the state of his mind:

That is absolutely correct.

The Beatles were not a rock 'n' roll band.

It's an interesting thought experiment to imagine what might have happened if there wasn't this one period that was so dominated by a single band. But maybe that's not what you're talking about....

You caught me. I am being facetious. The 60s was never dominated by a single band. Only Beatles fans think that.

The Beatles existed every bit as much as the Monkees and the Wombles.

With better chart results, too!

No argument here. I am a fan, and do think they could be the best band ever. But it's easy to overstate the degree to which they dominated the decade artistically. Here's a list of some of the important recordings released in 1967:

It's easy to argue for many of them over Sgt. Pepper's (My personal choice might be Forever Changes).

The albums released that year alone would make a pretty nice record collection. :smoke:

Is it just me or have the beatles died in exactly the wrong order?
The Bible is full of interest. It has noble poetry in it; and some clever fables; and some blood-drenched history; and some good morals; and a wealth of obscenity; and upwards of a thousand lies.

I think the actor playing 'John' probably just got tired of his role first. ;)

Oh, didn't notice The Velvet Underground and Nico on that list. Maybe that's my choice. Wait, Axis: Bold As Love is there, too.....

For folks who have the time to waste:

A 'documentary' about the death of the original Beatle Paul and his replacement by an even more talented actor...

Jesus but that was a good year.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Saw a John Cale play in 2005 and he opened with Venus in Furs. Incredible.
