When Paul McCartney is dead
you're a monk or a retired hermit who refuses any contact with the
outside, you know that Paul McCartney presented her show at the Bell
Centre last August 12. Without doubt, moreover, it was his last show in Montreal, he who in June celebrated his 68th birthday.
I am a big fan of McCartney. I attended one of his shows a few years ago in Toronto. I just starting to get over not being able to get tickets for the show last week, is you say. Like him, I am left handed. Like him, I'm bassist, I would say, because of him. He was and remains one of the people who influenced me greatly in my life. It was also, unwittingly, to the origin of one of the most terrorizing the beginning of my adolescence.
I have approximately 12 years. The Beatles were at their peak, and just released the album Abbey Road, I think the best if not the most accomplished in their careers. Devouring everything out on the group in any newspaper, I read an article that talks about the death of Paul McCartney. "Paul is dead" is the title of the article. I simply do not believe. "How is it that nobody has spoken on television?" I said. Although at the time, we were able, in my native St. Jerome, capturing two French channels, CFTM and Radio-Canada, I do not understand that could silence the news. I was dumbfounded.
The article, which is a good two or three pages, the reader learns that Paul McCartney was dead, several months ago, during a car accident. The Beatles and their entourage, says the article, trying to avoid that the group ceases operations because of the death of their bassist, decided to replace it with a double. I'm speechless. This was followed in the article the different steps leading to the replacement, the auditions to find the musician in question, as well as evidence of what the article claims. According to the newspaper, many clues have been left deliberately by the Beatles on the last two or three albums they have released. I'll get hard and I peel the clues that shows me the newspaper. Among them, the cover of the album Magical Mystery Tour that shows the stars. If you look at the artwork into a mirror, the stars form a telephone number. When composing this issue, according to the article, a voice said "Paul is dead". On the album Abbey Road, one can see the four Beatles crossing the street. Harrison is in jeans (the gravedigger), McCartney is dead, barefoot, Ringo is the undertaker and the officiant Lennon. To the right, a police car and left, the white Volkswagen, the plate is 28 IF (it would have turned 28 had he not died). The index multiplent and come to sow doubt in my mind of teenager who listens too Strawberryfield forever.
As many of our readers know these stories, I will confine myself to these few examples. Useless, by cons, to tell you how the text of the newspaper had moved, how many discussions he has generated subsequently on the supposed death of my idol.
While it is true, as contended by the article that Paul McCartney died, I must say that the Beatles did a good job Sapra to find his replacement as the musician who succeeded the first McCartney is extraordinary. After leaving the Beatles, the most famous group of the century, the guy is left completely to zero, and founded the Wings managed to stay on track all these years. Today, he manages to sell tickets in record time and is struggling on stage as a young musician. Not bad for a corpse buried 40 years ago!
