Deep within the darkest depths of the Blue Meanie brain, I have an ever so faint memory of cigarettes being airbrushed out of some Beatles publicity material a few years ago. Is this true, or does my mind play tricks?

Rax, I'm sure you can find a thread relating to this? Although it may have been before this forum was set up.

The same thing happened with Paul ciggie on the cover of Abbey Road for instance.

I'll look out for that. The CD I have now is only about 4 years old, but the ciggy's there.

I seem to remember that the picture from the Can't buy me love picture sleeve was used for something and the picture was airbrushed out.

Beatles Abbey Road cigarette airbrushed

United States poster companies have airbrushed the classic Beatles Abbey Road album cover to remove a cigarette from Paul McCartney's hand.
The move was made without the permission of either McCartney or Apple Records, which owns the rights to the image.  It seems these poster companies got a little carried away
The original copy shows a barefoot McCartney third in line on the famous road crossing holding a cigarette.
But politically correct US poster companies have airbrushed out the offending cigarette, to the delight of anti-smoking campaigners.
"We have never agreed to anything like this," said an Apple spokesman.
"It seems these poster companies got a little carried away.
 
McCartney came up with the original idea for the sleeve
"They shouldn't have done what they have, but there isn't much we can do about it now."
The move comes 14 months after guitarist George Harrison died from cancer, which he blamed on smoking.
All of the Beatles were heavy smokers during the 1960s and 70s.
The 1969 image has been a poster classic since it was taken near Abbey Road studios in north London, where the group recorded most of their music.
The shot is one of pop's most controversial album covers.
Photographer Iain Macmillan was given just ten minutes to take the picture outside the studios.
He balanced on a stepladder and took six photographs of the four walking across a zebra crossing.

Death myth
It was McCartney who selected the cover shot.
He had, in fact, come up with the original idea for the sleeve and had presented Macmillan with a sketch for it.
A myth suggesting that Paul McCartney had died in a car crash and been replaced by a look-a-like grew up around the picture soon after it was released.
Clues could supposedly be found in the image.
The white-suited John Lennon symbolised the preacher heading the funeral procession, while the bare-footed McCartney was the corpse.
According to the rumours, proof positive of the impostor theory was the fact that Paul was holding a cigarette in his right hand, despite being left-handed.
