Ringo dead?

Hmm, so that's why 'Yellow Submarine' played backwards says ' psst...I'm not the real drummer' at 1:34

HelloGoodbye,

Sorry, I've listened to that snippet from Sgt Pepper that you posted so many times now it's a good thing my wife isn't here or she'd think I'm nuts.  (Maybe she already does.)  But I still got nothing.  The only thing that I can make out is, "In the band, in the band," or something like that.  Break it to me, what am I missing?

We should start a Ringo is Dead: Story & Clues thread in the Ringo Starr forum.  ;)

"I don't want to scare anyone..."

Maybe it's just a reference to the psychedelia they had gotten into.

HelloGoodbye,

I gotta be honest, I'm not getting it.  Even listening to it after reading what Paul's supposed to be saying, I still don't hear it.  Still sounds like "Shaking (or something) in the band, in the band."  Maybe it's me.  I'm usually fine at hearing all the other aural clues, but this one's beyond me.

But I think I may have found a clue that I haven't seen folks mention before.  In the promo music video for Strawberry Fields Forever, the one where the Beatles are playing around near a broken piano and a tree, check out about 1:20 into it.  This is when John is singing, "No one, I think, is in my tree."  But just at that moment, someone *is* in the tree...Paul!  Just a coincidence?  I think not!  Is this John's way of saying that the person in the tree isn't real? In other words, Paul is dead!

I would have embedded the video in my post, but I don't seem to be smart enough to do that.  (I'm not particularly bright.)

Well, here's another clue for you all...





That's American author Stephen Crane whose right hand appears over Paul's head.  Noted for his Civil War novel The Red Badge Of Courage, he also wrote the short story The Open Boat...





...a story about his experience of surviving a shipwreck off the coast of Florida in 1897 while traveling to Cuba to work as a newspaper correspondent.  The ship he was on, the SS Commodore, sank after hitting a sandbar.  He and three other men were forced to navigate their way to shore in a small boat.  One of the men, an oiler named Billie Higgins, drowned after the boat overturned.

Four men started the journey, but only three finished.

Really! And that's what I love about the Beatles; I'm always learning something new, especially with a little help from my friends.  ;)

Revolution 9 Backmask (backwards) by The Beatles



I wish I had this video when I was in college.  The only way we could play Revolution 9 backwards was to disconnect the drive belt on a turntable and spin the record in reverse with our fingers, as close as possible to 33 1/3 RPM.  It was hard to do for extended periods of time.

But here we have Revolution 9 at the correct speed in reverse along with a transcription.

That's a handy resource. Thanks for that.

Rev 9 gets a lot of stick. Not surprisingly. But I do think that as a piece of aural art it's pretty effective. I find it a very disturbing track.
