Geoffrey Giuliano



On December 2, 2006, the Daily Mail reported that Heather Mills was attempting to purchase tapes of interviews with Paul McCartney's stepsister Ruth from 1994. The tapes allegedly contained lots of dirt that would damage Paul McCartney's position in his divorce proceedings. The person who interviewed Ruth McCartney and had possession of the tapes was none other than Geoffrey Guiliano.

Guiliano has written numerous books on the Beatles, several of which have created controversy.

His biography "Blackbird: The Life and Times of Paul McCartney" was far from a tribute. Paul even specifically refuted the Guiliano claim that John Lennon had stuck his foot through McCartney's favorite painting in a fit of rage. Also in the book, Guiliano describes a stoned Wings guitarist Jimmy McCulloch so filled with hate toward the McCartneys that he had aimed and squeezed the trigger of a .22 caliber handgun at Paul's EYE as he lay sleeping. McCulloch let go of the trigger just before the gun fired.

Guiliano is no fan of Yoko Ono either. One of the photo captions in "Blackbird" says, "Forget anything you've read to the contrary. Yoko Ono is definitely the person who contributed more than any other to the unhappy breakup of the Beatles." He also hints that Yoko was somehow responsible for Paul being busted in Japan in 1980.

One of his John Lennon books is supposedly based on lost Lennon diaries that he received from Harry Nilsson, who was also dead when the book came out.

When critics suggest that Guiliano is making up these stories just to get the money, he defends himself by saying that he is already independently wealthy and has no need to lie just for the money.



It was Guiliano who wrote the biography "The Private Life of George Harrison." His penchant for misleading his interview subjects and trying to find every little piece of dirt, much of it without any proof, prompted George Harrison to sarcastically say, "This guy knows more my life than I do." In typical Giuliano fashion, the author put that quote on the cover of his book where it appeared to be an endorsement. An angry Olivia Harrison in 1992 told the Guardian, "like a starving dog he [Giuliano] scavenges his heroes, picking up bits of gristle and sinew along the way."



Guiliano's George Harrison biography also contained the infamous picture of George Harrison and his wife Olivia, along with "Legs" Larry Smith of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, and London Gallery owner Mary Tambini. The picture was taken at George's Friar Park Home and on the wall behind them we see a picture of Adolf Hitler.



He seems to love the words "Lost" and "Secret" in his books and many of his rock biographies read like conspiracy theories. One very bizarre chapter in his life occurred in September of 2001 when this item appeared in the usually reliable Abbeyrd Beatles News Site.

Beatle author among victims in World Trade Center attack (9/15/01)
Author Geoffrey Giuliano was among the victims in the World Trade Center attack, according to his publisher, Indigo Editions. Here's the text of an email received by both Brad Howard of the World Beatles Forum and Marsha Ewing of Instant Karma magazine. We also received a note from one of Giuliano's representatives confirming his death:

"Indigo Editions today formally announces the death of author Geoffrey Giuliano in the tragic attack on the World Trade Center in New York on his 48th birthday, September 11, 2001. He is survived by his wife Vrnda and four children. No body has been recovered. An Indian funeral is planned near New Delhi.
INDIGO"

Brad Howard tells us his publisher had confirmed that Giuliano had just finished another Beatles book called "Revolution." Our condolences to his family.
This news item copyright Abbeyrd's Beatles Page


Like Mark Twain and Paul McCartney before him, rumors of his death were greatly exaggerated.

He has another side to his life as a a supremely confident being and devotee of Krishna. This article from Viaschnava News will give you an idea of how he fits in with that movement. For more information about the corruption in the Iskcon movement, I would suggest the book "Monkey on a Stick: Murder, Madness, and the Hare Krishnas" by John Hubner.

Another thing you might want to know about Geoffrey Giuliano is how he feels about "Paul Is Dead" theorists. Once again from "Blackbird" Giuliano wrote, "It was at this time that the reprehensible 'Paul Is Dead' notion was born, providing virtually unlimited fodder for a legion of pot-smoking idlers around the globe to further squander their limited lifetimes from that day to this."

As one of my readers pointed out, this page on Geoffrey Guiliano's web site uses a title we have seen before.




So, we have a guy who has a lot of money. He has a pretty big ego too. He has spent a lot of time with insiders (Ex-Wings Denny Laine and Steve Holly contributed the Introduction and Afterword respectively to "Blackbird"). He is into conspiracy theories and even had his own little death rumor going for a while. He says nasty things about Apple and they say nasty things about him. He sometimes misleads, twists things, and has been accused of lies. Yeah, you're right. There is no way a person like that could have anything to do with Iamaphoney.




Thanks to Aja, 65If2007 and other anonymous readers for the comments that led to this post.

You're welcome, Tafultong.

In fact, I KNOW that at least one and probably more of Iamaphoney's RA videos refers to Giuliano book "Blackbird".

I remember having specifically seen the book photographed in that video, but I don't remember in which video or videos this photograph appears.

It might be significant that even Giuliano disparages the notion that Paul is dead when you would suppose that such a rumor-monger wouldn't hesitate to claim otherwise if he had even weak reason to do so...

...UNLESS you want to suppose that Giuliano is reluctant to let this Paul off the hook for sins committed in his name in 1966 and beforehand.

And maybe one might also suppose that Giuliano could be more involved with PID than he is letting on and is simply hiding his PID light under a bushel.

65if2007 said...

Oops, I see that you actually DID find the RA video or one of them referring to "Blackbird".

Geoffrey Giuliano...

I barely skimmed your latest post, I have been disliking that guy long before IAAP came along... what a dirt bag douche loser.

Tafultong said...

He also might the kind of guy who would enjoy playing a joke on pot smoking idlers like us.

Steve Marinucci/Abbeyrd's Beatles Page said...

You didn't mention that I also was the one who tracked down Giuliano and found out he was alive. It was a very weird situation all together. (Steve at Abbeyrd's Beatles Page.)

Tafultong said...

Steve M.,

I apologize for the omission. You absolutely were the one who tracked him down. By the way, I am also honored that you visited this blog!

I have added a link to your excellent Beatles News site under my "Essential Links."

Great post - although I'm pretty sure, having followed "Bill's" tracks from his early NIR posts, that the original individual is European, does not speak or write perfect English, and believes in PID. That doesn't mean others didn't come on board at a later time, which is apparent from the stylistic changes. Who knows?

Tafultong said...

Thanks anonymous. I am a proponent of the “someone coming on board later” theory. Also, Iamaphoney makes many references in the videos to people who present themselves as being much less literate than they actually are.

Well well well- What do we have here? Another group of folks pissed off at one Jeffrey Joseph Juliana ( all the other names he uses are worthless- His pasport reads Jefferey Joseph Juliana) In fact if anyone is truly looking for the "Elmer Gantry" piece of trash let me know, I have an address and would be gald to give to you for free.
You are correct, he is alive and well and living in Pattaya, Thailand.
Pattaya is a very famous city in Thailand. It is located outside of Bangkok and is most famous for the countless numbers of Amserican males in thier 40's and 50's that travel there for sexual reasons. Young women who will do anything you want, teenage girls that you would go to jail for in the U.S., Young boys,sheladies, and much of everything that the U.S., and normal people, deam unlawful and generaly somewhere near the underbelly of society.
I had to laugh when he says is independently wealthy. The last quote I heard of his from a friend of mine, one "little fellow" as Giuliano's last entry on one of the networking site states. Just as recently as December 2009, he was begging for money because as Geoffrey said, "We're eating Dirt over here"
My friend was "conned" out of cash money in excess of $12,000. He was hired by Giuliano to go to Lockport New York and fix, both physically and parework wise, problems that Giuliano was unable to do. Why? Because he has no money ( he is trying to sell posters for his project museum for about $100. "These will be collector items. I am personally signing and numbering each one, limited edtions,first print." His waistline is greater than the amount of money he will raise.
My friend told me that when he arrived in Lockport that his reception was met with raised eyebrows and questioning looks.
Back in 2006, Giuliano made an attempt to convert his one time Hare Krisha commune located at 735 Market St. into some sort of Beatles museum. The entire community was against it. You can read the articles if you go to the Lockport Union Journal newspaper. His latest apptempt to do something with the property at 735 Market Lockport, New York.is once again---you guessed it---a museum.
The Museum of 60's Music & Culture. Again, he has a line of "suckers" from all over that think this is a wonderful idea, and it probably is however,the property is in disrepair, it has over $14,000 of back taxes owed to the state, and according to the mayor, Giuliano won't ever get the variances he wants, or the free labor to clean up the property. My friend is in real estate, among other jobs he holds, and he went to Lockport at the request of Mr. Giuliano to do a Broker Price Opinion (BPO) with the stipulation that when the home closed (it was under contract at the time)ALL of the money that was used by Giuliano, the BPO, and anything additioanl would be paid back FIRST and then the remainder Giuliano would keep.
According to my sources when ever you call or ask about the property or say his name you usually get a laugh or the famous "sacred cow story".
For those who would believe this "windbag", he is living the life of Rilley in Thailand. He is living there "ooopm", off of others people's money.

No one has actually seen the "Millions of dollars worth of Beatles memorbilia" and oddly enough the person whom authentisizes it---you got it---one Geoffrey Giuliano. The entry here that says, DON'T TRUST THIS MAN !" wise words. There are many folks working very hard right at this moment to ensure that he is exposed and he does no more damage to anyone else.

Giuliano hired me, a local graphic designer, to work on Lennon in America. (Note that the bad cover on the published book is NOT my design.) Guiliano drove from his "mansion" to my modest home to pick up the finished work and pay me. With a newborn baby in my arms, he handed me a check from a closed bank account. KARMA is the only word I have for him.

Having recently had the misfortune of meeting and corresponding with Giuliano on Facebook, I can state the man is scary. I caught him in numerous lies, he ended up stalking me such that I had to deactivate my facebook account, he stated he's attempted suicide in the last month, he claimed he was penniless, is trying to kidnap his child from a bad relationship with a Thai woman, and when I asked him to stop messaging me, he simply wouldn't stop. He is offering for sale numerous Beatles items, such as George Harrison's prayer beads and it seems rather dubious that Harrison would ever have parted with those beads in his lifetime or that his widow and son would have not guarded them feverishly since his death; it is even more implausible that Harrison would ever have gifted them to Derek Taylor from whom Giuliano claims to have received them.His proof that these were indeed Harrison's beads? A widely published photo of Harrison in the last years of his life holding a bag, which Giuliano claims contains the unseen beads! He claims he met Harrison at a mutual friends' home, yet Harrison, in his testimony, alluded to the fact that he had not ever met him.The lies are never ending and he tells so many that he can't keep them straight. I wouldn't believe a word he says, whether about himself or the subjects about whom he writes. He is definitely a person to stay away from.

Anonymous said...

I met him that way, too. The guy can't keep his stories straight. One minute he met Harrison at somebody called "Legs" home and the next day he says something completely different. Strange that Harrison gave a deposition saying he'd never met him at all. Ditto Lennon. I don't trust his Beatles sale items. I read the previous post and I don't believe Harrison would ever have given his prayer beads away to anyone. I can't believe he expects anyone to buy a photo of a bag as proof that the beads he's offering are in there somewhere, and, as Derek Taylor is also dead, he has no proof. I'm surprised Harrison's son and widow aren't suing him.

My friend went through a short, but intense experience with Giuliano, too. She had contacted him to correct something he'd written about George Harrison which she knew to be untrue as she's had a relationship with Harrison before his second marriage. Giuliano began stalking her on Facebook, calling her from Thailand, and within days was asking her to marry him. He told her he'd recently attempted suicide, was penniless, that his grown children were all drug addicts who he had nothing to do with,and was focused on kidnapping his little boy who was hidden away from him by the mother who is Thai. He constantly wrote about paying off Thai mafia types to steal the boy, bragged about his acting career, and seemed to imply that she should send him money. Her friends who read these emails were sufficiently alarmed by his obvious instability that we all told her to immediately cease all communication with him, which she did, but not before acting out in such a way that all of us were alarmed and afraid for her safety. He's dishonest, changes stories all the time, claims to be an insider when he has never met the people about whom he writes, and can't keep the details about the bizarre stories he tells straight. I wouldn't touch any of his Beatles memorabilia as I believe none of it is genuine judging by his varied and unbelievable stories about how he came to get the varied items. Giuliano is a pathological liar and predator who has managed to convince his readers that he has inside knowledge of his subjects, but, he has done nothing but take bits and pieces from previously published books by other writers and put them together in a single book. He is vindictive, a stalker, and absolutely crazy.

I met Geoffrey several years
ago and he recounted the story
of meeting GH. He said he went
with a friend to a house that GH
was staying at. They got inside
the house (his friend had been
invited) and began to mix (there
was a small party happening).
He found his way to GH (who didn't
know who Giuliano was) and they
started talking. Giuliano asked
GH a question about the Beatles.
Per Giuliano, GH immediately turned
and walked away. A few moments later,
Giuliano was thrown out of the
house. Again, per Giuliano, this
5 minute conversation was the one and only time he
met GH.

Yes, this guy does manipulate and he uses his own children for his cons and personal gain. I know his daughter, Avalon, and when Geoffrey was poisoning fb with posts about how his daughter was mentally damaged because of an attack on her by her boyfriend, she was actually at her bfs house, walking around. Yes, she did go to the hospital but it was because some mental condition started again. Geoffrey immediately took that opportunity to try to sue and suck money from a famous and respectful family in Lockport.

He has zero talent and is currently trying to make a living, according to his daughter, by creating what he thinks is a hip clothing line which he than wants to pitch to a rich investor in america.

BEWARE! DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN OR WORK FOR HIM unless you want to get screwed over like a lot of people already have.
