Spilling into the Real World

UPDATE: Scroll down to the bottom of the Geoff Baker part for the update. I thought it was important to put it in context.

Our conspiracy theory and speculation appears to be crossing the lines of fantasy into reality (with mixed results, I might add).

Something very weird happened recently to former Paul McCartney publicist Geoff Baker, who turned down offers to write a book about his time with Paul to instead write a novel titled "Diary of a Madman."



The novel has been appearing in parts as frequent updates of Geoff Baker's blog. Breaking away from the routine novel updates, Baker recently posted an email exchange between him and someone named William Donohue.

Here are some highlights:

On November 26, 2008, Baker apparently received this email message from a William Donohue:
OH GOD, I'VE BEEN HACKED
PLEASE DON'T CONTACT ME AGAIN, IT COULD BE VERY DANGEROUS FOR ME, IF SOMEBODY WANTS TO TALK TO YOU, PLEASE DON'T TELL THEM ABOUT ME. I THINK THEY FOUND OUT. PLEASE RESPECT MY WISH TO BE INCOGNITO, THEY FOUND OUT YOU HAVE THE TWIN PEPPERS.
TAKE CARE, PLEASE. IT's NOT FUNNY!


It went back and forth with Geoff trying to convince the person that he had the wrong guy. You will notice that this person mentioned the "Twin Peppers" two days before I did. William also gave Baker the address of a phony (but probably not Iamaphoney) YouTube account which has already disappeared.

Later in the exchange we have Geoff responding this way to Mr. Donohue on November 27, 2008:

This is becoming surreal. To answer and possibly explain:

1. The website you sent me to, where I am alleged to exist as Geoff 'anus' Baker, has McCartney references. I worked for Paul for 15 years so I presume the Geoff Baker they are referencing is me.
2. Of course I have heard of YouTube.
3. I have however never heard of the RA Revelation Freedom Fighters who are those claiming to be the people who have hacked me.
4. I don't know who this other Geoff Baker is who is warning you that he too has been hacked, but I shouldn't worry about any of this as it all has the hallmark of the petty and daft.
5. It doesn't bother me, I have much experience of dealing with nutters. Which is why I am now posting all this correspondence onto my blog, so everyone else can enjoy the pointlessness of it all.

This really is a "nutter" move. I hope that Iamaphoney had nothing to do with it.

The "Twin Peppers" are supposedly two different mixes of the Sgt. Pepper album provided to Iamaphoney by Neil Aspinall. Someone claimed that if you sync the two together and play them simultaneously, you will hear secret messages. If I ever get any evidence that the "Twin Peppers" exist, I will share it here.

The harassment of Geoff Baker concerns me and threatens the credibility of those who claim to have special inside information, including Iamaphoney. Since the Berlin suitcase is "in circulation" it presents all kinds of opportunities for people with partial information to make the water even more murky than it already is. My hope is that Iamaphoney will speak soon and distance himself from this latest excursion that seems to be over the line. Geoff Baker clearly seems to not be playing along.

UPDATE
: The image below will take you to a YouTube Channel that appears to be related to the Geoff Baker shenanigans.



Incidentally, Geoff Baker's book looks like it will be a good read.

There have been other less scary occurrences of items in the news that seem to fit our story.

Recently Mojo Magazine did two consecutive issues spotlighting the 40th anniversary of the Beatles White Album. I noticed as I was reading the second issue that they cleverly title their letters to the editor around a particular theme. All of the letters in that issue had titles from lines in the movie "Yellow Submarine." I then realized that in the first issue, which featured the Beatles on the cover, all of the letters to the editor had titles taken from lines of the movie "Paths of Glory." That movie of course was directed by none other than Stanley Kubrick. Iamaphoney and Grandfatheraleister would be proud.



The much talked about article Sir Paul McCartney confronts the ghosts of his past contained some interesting items. First of all, the author committed a glaring factual error by stating that Ringo played on "How Do You Sleep." If Ringo played at all on the "Imagine" album, it has been a well kept secret for over a quarter of a century. But the article was based on conversations that took place over a period of several months, so the author, Mark Edmonds, did get to spend a lot of time with McCartney. As a result, he asked McCartney questions that I doubt he had ever been asked previously, such as, would he ever perform the song "How Do You Sleep." Yes, he actually asked him that. The article also described McCartney's access to world leaders, or more accurately, world leaders' access to Paul McCartney.

Despite the unusually tight access, the article is far from being a fluff piece about Paul. He addresses some of Paul's unfortunate public relations gaffes including his initial reaction to John's death and the firing of Geoff Baker. A particularly interesting passage in the long article dealt with Lily Evans, the widow of Mal.

I mention that I have recently interviewed the widow of Mal Evans, the Beatles’ long-standing roadie who felt let down by the group when they broke up — the comment is simply ignored as though he didn’t hear it.

Who interviews Lily Evans these days and why? Interesting.

There is a new website dedicated to the Beatles and created for the purpose of spreading peace and love throughout the world. Check out Fixingahole.org. Even CNN did an interview with author Steve Turner with the title "The Beatles were a 'Spiritual Force.'" With power like that, they could, dare I say it, rule the world.

Finally, I got a mention on one of my favorite websites recently, the often cited Abbeyrd News Page. I happened to contribute some Fireman minutiae after I spotted a missing piece in a story.

Back when not everyone had a record player that would play Stereo, the record companies had to put out two versions of their records, and I know for a fact that the Mono version of Sgt Pepper differs slightly from the Stereo. One notable example: in the Sgt. Pepper reprise, the mono version of "Is he really really dead?" shouting is not drowned out by the orchestra as it is in the stereo version. They really did record two versions back then, because sometimes the stereo version, when mixed together for mono, would "not sound right".
If there was any "secret message", it would have had to have been in bits and pieces so as not to be too conspicuous. (Byrdsmaniac)

"Twin Peppers" Twin-Track Mono
Ask Geoff Emerick

jojo said...

Damn I missed another great Mojo (2 actually) so I'll have to get the back issues. Time to subscribe, but anyway..

I don't know what the context was about Ringo playing on HDYS without reading the article, but it may be possible. Yeah, he's nowhere to be found in the movie, but there's this story that I read somewhere.. Wish I had the source at my command, but it's been a while.

The story goes like this: John wanted to use these lyrics:

The only thing you done was yesterday,
I bet you pinched that bitch anyway


And Ringo (which implies he was there) talked him out of that second line. (take this for what you will)

Anonymous said...

I guess it was in "Many Years From Now" where, after veiwing J &Y writing new lyrics and giggling, he said he wanted no part of it!

Hmm. The story I heard had Allen Klein instead of Ringo and it even credited Klein for the alternative line.

"Many Years From Now" says:

The song does focus on all John's resentment of Paul and it is no surprise to find in it a reference to 'Yesterday'; John never got over the fact that the two biggest Beatles songs, 'Yesterday' and 'Michelle', were solo efforts by Paul on which John did not even play. Allen Klein told Albert Goldman that after the line in 'How Do You Sleep?' that says the only song Paul wrote was 'Yesterday', John planned to scream, 'You probably pinched that bitch anyway!'
Klein was in me control booth with Phil Spector during the run-through at the Record Plant in New York, where the basic tracks were mixed and the final vocals added, and was so aghast at the potential libel involved that he demanded that John drop it. Klein himself improvised its anodyne replacement.


If you find the source of the Ringo statement, please let me know.

jojo said...

Eh, it's possible I have it wrong, (or probable) I can only excuse myself by saying I consume a lot of Beatle information and sometimes I get things mixed up.. I still have a sense of having read it somewhere, and I'll try to find it regardless.

Whether it was Klein or not, you can't argue one thing: That line was directed at the Paul McCartney living in 1965, which makes me figure that's who the anger expressed in the song was for.

jojo said...

One other thing, there are bootlegs of HDYS, with an apparent "rehearsal on tape", much like the many takes of Strawberry Fields we've all heard. For example, John plays around with the line "But pretty soon they'll see what you can do". No sign of that that nasty line anywhere, which makes me believe the decision to take it out was made very early, before anything was even recorded, making the control booth story seem a bit hard to believe.

Jojo said:

Excellent point. I guess it's possible that John recorded demos in the studio with Klein in the control room, but I have never heard a version with the nasty line in it.

I disagree with Jojo on just about everything (I'm PIA after all) but Jojo is correct. The story was mentioned in Beatlefan magazine in an interview with one of the musicians (Klaus Voorman?) who played on the record.

Interesting that the theories of the PWR crowd work against the PID crowd. Obviously, if Lennon was expressing anger toward 1965 Paul, he wouldn't put it in a song to sing to a dead person.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, the lyrics in question from HDYS are obviously jabs about Paul wanting to do solo work. The first line about Yesterday, the first song Paul did solo, and Another Day, another solo song by Paul that was around in the late Beatle days.

65if2007 said...

Tafultong, I've noticed that whenever you make a new blog entry, all serious discussion on the previous blog entries terminates.

I was out of town for the holiday weekend and did not have regular online access or a lot of time on my hands, so I missed your Friday entry on the suitcases.

I'm responding to that entry in this series underneath your Saturday entry, even though this Saturday entry is on a different subject matter altogether.

---------
"There are no details about the audio content of the record, but I have no reason to believe that it was anything but the "Magic Christian Soundtrack."

"In an unfortunate turn of events, the finder of the suitcase, known as 65if2007, was accused of holding back information about the contents. Those complaints, along with an ineffectual online petition to force 65if to either play the record or give it to someone who would caused him to stop cooperating."
---------

One of these days, I might get a phonograph and listen to the album out of boredom or to satisfy my own curiosity.

I doubt that there's anything else other than Magic Christian soundtrack on the record either.

Apparently, Iamaphoney later composed his own music to the tune of what he thought was a backmasked version of "Come and Get It".

It was pretty good actually -- better than the original, I thought. Maybe he expected me to spin the record backwards and find the same thing.

Iamaphoney's version is on Rotten Apple 9 q -- and again, it's pretty good. The guy can make lemonade out of a lemon, I'll say that for him. He is either a highly-talented amateur musician and film-maker or a low-flying professional one.

But even if there was somehow some other cryptic clue that Iamaphoney could have somehow inserted into the record itself (or that already existed) that I never found, that's all that it would be -- just another cryptic clue.

I am sure that there are no "answers" in that record, and I am reasonably certain that Iamaphoney has no "answers" to give in the first place.

After I found Suitcase #1, people should have been getting tired of more cryptic clues and demanding solid answers from Iamaphoney -- but instead some of them were demanding that I squeeze the turnip dry in an attempt to draw more anemic blood from it.

I got tired of that. I got tired of a lot of things.

Iamaphoney was telling his surrogates that I was "holding back" without even having the courtesy to contact me to tell me what he had in mind.

Holding back WHAT? Where would I find it? When I was in a more tractable frame of mind, he could have made himself more explicit by contacting me through my NIR box or my YouTube box and he never did.

Then too, your chronicle of events inadvertently fails to mention another important non-event: the famed Iamaphoney INTERVIEW. It's hinted at in the very title of "Rotten Apple 9 q".

Iamaphoney initially promised that he would allow himself to be interviewed. Later, he conditioned that promise on someone finding the suitcase. Later, he indicated that he would answer nine questions only ("9 q") even if the suitcase was found.

My question was and still is: Who the hell is the elderly British guy on RA's 42 and 45 who claimed to be a member of the "Beatles circle" with personal knowledge of a fatal motor vehicle accident in 1966 that killed Paul McCartney?

If that guy was a real person, as opposed to an actor, then to have answered that question I think would have effectively answered all questions.

I made it very clear at the time that my primary motive in retrieving the suitcase was to require Iamaphoney to submit to the interview, at which time I expected my question to be among those answered.

But AFTER I found the suitcase and reported on what I could find of its contents, that question of mine was removed from the list of questions.

That was a fine way for Iamaphoney's surrogates to thank the guy who had found the suitcase and reported on it, as best as he could.

And then, of course, Iamaphoney broke his promise to allow himself to be interviewed in the first place.

Instead of turning on Iamaphoney for breaking his promise, his surrogates -- who had thoughtlessly removed my question from the list of questions that would be asked at the interview (which again, Iamaphoney never gave) --were turning on ME, demanding that I play the record.

By the way, notice how elderly British Beatles insider with knowledge of the supposed fatal 1966 car accident has disappeared from the series. He hasn't reappeared since RA 45 was made in August 2007.

Elderly Mediterranean guy still makes an occasional cameo in the RA series, but elderly British Beatles insider hasn't reappeared in that series for 15 months.

If he was a TRUE Beatles insider with genuine knowledge of such a thing, it would defy logic and human nature for Iamaphoney to "sit on" such a witness.

Anyway, it's true that that sequence of events disgusted me and made me tired of the whole thing.

65if, I went back and listened to the "elderly gentlemen" segment which is the only component of the entire series that would merit attention if it were an honest statement by a Beatle insider. However, this person does not seem to be speaking his mind, rather, it is obvious that he is reading from a carefully worded script, and there is no emotional connection to his words (sorry if you are the actor reading this). Beyond that, his delivery indicates, in all probability, that he is a trained (classical, Shakespearean) actor. Thus I would conclude that the series was put together by film editors who have teamed up with, or are part of, a theater ensemble, and that the "Mediterranean" guy is another of these actors, and may even be the same actor trained in dialects, as most of them are. In conclusion, it seems quite possible that the PlugFive-Miles Deo Shakespearean ensemble and the Formermedia folks are connected through some promotional work and that the series is basically a labor of Beatle love, though love's labor is apparently lost.

Perhaps not trained, but someone put to the task of reading the script. As I mentioned, the statement doesn't sound conversational, and it doesn't sound like the person is speaking his own mind. It is difficult for some trained actors to pretend they are not actors (which may be the case in that video), in the same way great singers have trouble pretending to sing off key.

Because your assumptions are not accurate.

I've given Iamaphoney credit for the entertainment level of many of his videos and continue to do so.

I even think that he found some genuine PID clues that no one before him had found.

I AM still interested in PID, although I very much doubt now that there is any literal truth to it. That is, I doubt that Paul literally died or was ever replaced.

But, as I have said before, I still believe that the Beatles hinted on many occasions that this was what happened. So I think that PID is a genuine phenomena, to this limited extent.

The question, as I have said before, is WHY the Beatles dropped these hints if they weren't the literal truth. I don't think that it was simply a marketing ploy.

I've speculated and continue to speculate on the possibility that Iamaphoney is some low-level Beatles insider who has a very
limited insight as to the truth -- though not nearly as much insight as he would like everyone to believe.

I also have said that there might be some truth to the occult element of Iamaphoney's Beatles story, which may very well touch upon the PID mystery.

I doubt very much that the Beatles were ever consciously or unconsciously part of any Satanic plots against the public -- but it's possible that the Beatles might have gotten involved with the occult, maybe to an extent that they regretted later on.

It would not be too surprising if four young men, who found that they had achieved a more phenomenal level of success and material wealth than they could have imagined, and yet still found themselves unsatisfied, turned to the occult for reasons of boredom and/or misplaced spiritualism.

I'm wondering if Paul ever "died" in a spiritual sense or in some sense other than the purely literal one.

Something like that might be a more plausible explanation for the somewhat weird changes that really did seem to come over him between August 31, 1966 and December 1966/early 1967.

Although I doubt very much that Iamaphoney will ever provide any answers or will ever be in a position to, I still think that it's possible that he has gotten hold of a worm's eye view of the truth -- which he has embroidered with a fair amount of fiction.

And, as I've said, his videos can be tremendously entertaining -- though not recently. The multiple suitcase angle is a symptom of writer's block on his part.

He needs to move on from it, if he can -- and yeah, in my particular case, Iamaphoney REALLY either overplayed or underplayed his hand.

But you're wrong in thinking that I'm purely an Iamaphoney-debunker. I'm still interested in his story and am interested to see how it plays out -- if it ever plays out. I'm just no longer waiting up nights for the "revelation" that he promised in RA 1.

Hey, goofball, the one asking 65if to play the album. Guess what? He doesn't have to play the album if he doesn't want to. There is an old saying amongst lawyers, and one that Phoney should have taken under advisement: Never ask a question of a witness to which you do not already know the answer. You don't plant suitcases for anyone to find, and then moan and groan if the patsy's don't play along as planned. That's bad planning. And that brings up another classic showbiz truism> The audience is always right.

Never blame the audience for a poorly executed performance.

Maybe you too could have a hissy fit and leave. Forever. And then pop back in every week or so with another proclamation.

"The blue-linked Iamaphoney said...
Play the album 65if2007."


Hello blue-linked Iamaphoney.

Where have you been for the last seven months?

So you've finally lowered yourself to address me directly instead of addressing me through surrogates?

Any particular place in the album that you'd like for me to play?

Or am I supposed to just play the whole thing and guess what you had in mind?

Why should I do this for you? If what I have is important, why would you ever give it up in the first place?

How will my playing the album advance anyone's state of knowledge on the subject at hand?

There doesn't seem to be a whole lot in the suitcases that others have found.

Is there some sort of revelation in the album that you haven't disclosed elsewhere? Then again, why would you give the album up?

Finally, who IS the elderly British guy who portrays himself as a member of the Beatles circle and claims personal knowledge of a fatal 1966 motor vehicle accident?

And why haven't you referred to him over the last 15 months?

Not that I really believe in any of this anymore, but maybe if you had been forthright with answers to THOSE questions -- particularly that last series, I might have played ball with you longer.

They don't speak for you? If you are Iamaphoney, that is patently false. Mikey has repeatedly said that you told him to say such and such, including the details of the interview, etc. Tafultong, I would add, is also a surrogate, to whom you have sent various materials to post. You have chosen to have these folks speak for you within the limited guidelines you have set for yourself.

Jude, I give the man all of the credit in the world for the entertainment value of his videos -- which is considerable -- and for the knowledge that he has contributed to the subject at hand -- which is not so great, but still...

I don't begrudge him a single subscriber or a single channel view.

And I'm not competing with him.

I don't have any sentimental attachment to any of this.

I have always assumed that the fun that I am getting in defying Jude and Iamaphoney was worth considerably more than anyone would ever pay me for this crap.

But I think that some time this week, I might just put this crap up on ebay with a reserve amount and see what I can get for it.

I said "might". And if I do, I might try to see if I can get away with a really outrageous reserve amount.

I'm sure that this next question will provoke a lot of whimsical response, but seriously, is there anyone out there -- any SENSIBLE person -- who really think that this is worth anything?

We've established that very few people actually believe in the PID PWR urban legends. Tafultong, creator of this very blog, does not believe. Mikey, who is Phoney's surrogate, does not believe. Jude (see Mikey) doesn't believe. 65if no longer believes. Since no one is waiting anymore for some sort of evidence that PID/PWR, what is left?

I think it was a party for awhile, but the host left, and now there are hangers on, sort of waiting around because there is no other party. That's why the party moved over to this blog. But now even this party is winding down because there is little to no fuel left in the Phoney engine, or patience left in the six or ten people who cared.

Anonymous said...

I think all people are waiting for at this point is some final statement from Phoney so they can definitively call him a fraud or hoaxer. The others just want to know who he is, although that answer will disappoint. So it has to stay in limbo, because there is no revelation regarding Paul and there is no great mystery behind the Iamaphoney channel. The only recourse, then, is for Phoney to stay anonymous, because that's his only remaining gambit to keep the thin aura of mystery alive.

Anonymous said...

I think it is worth something, because the "Oh Fuck" video that was in the suitcase really is a big clue! It gives the RA series some validity imo.
And yes, I'm serious. And thank you, 65if2007, for getting the suitcase, and sharing that video.
But really, Iamaphoney does need to live up to his promises.
And I would appreciate it if he would really try to make the next video a "smoking gun" blockbuster that would make people think twice.

This is true but I would also say the interest in exposing Iamaphoney and learning his identity is really the only remaining interest he generates at all. A handful of believers does not account for much because they don't matter when compared to the numbers that want to see Iamaphoney revealed.
The videos on the formermedia website convinced me long ago that Martin Lind is involved.

A big clue? That was the death knell for the entire series! The video that made everyone jump ship. I can think of nothing more damaging to Iamaphoney's credibility than that cheesy video. If he had a big revealtion he's blown his chances at ever being taken seriously. He would best be served by taking his name out of circulation and starting over and being careful not to make the videos look like anything "Iamaphoney" would make. As it stands, he is poison to PID.

I've said it before on this very blog, and I'll say it again: I bear no ill-will against you, 65if2007.

Like I said before, if I wanted to piss 65if2007 off I'd address him as myself and do a damn better job of it; comparing IAAP's subscribers to his? Why on earth would I do that? I no longer support Iamaphoney, so even I am not impressed by how many subscribers he has. Besides, wouldn't it me more in my interest to simply compare the amount of subscribers I have to how many he has?

I doubt any of that will penetrate your obviously thick head because as this is, as the previous post anticipated, a "hissy prissy fit", apparently.

Miles, I think Electric Arguments is okay, but nothing special from the person who wrote "Maybe I'm Amazed" and all the rest. I'm a huge Macca fan, but it does a disservice to Paul's truly great output to rank anything on this album with it. Sure, there are some moments, and I enjoy it for what it is, but it isn't McCartney at his best, which was long ago.
