I'm surprised that neither Iamaphoney nor any of his imitators have yet done a video detailing the perceived changes that exist or are supposed to exist between pre-1967 McCartney and post-1967 McCartney while "Sing the Changes" is being played in the background.

Sounds like a natural to me.

65if2007 said...

And now that I've mentioned the idea, we'll see if anyone follows through on it...

Anonymous said...

65if2007, why did you say that?? ;)

Now some kid s comming up with a stupid video of sunkings or faulconandsnowjob comps.. :-P

i thinks its well proven, that there are no changes!..

:)

65if2007 said...

-Shrugs- Before and after comparisons make my head spin. I see "changes" in some of them and not in others.

Nigeria McCartney looks pretty weird. December 1966 EMI Studios McCartney looks pretty weird.

The weirdest-looking McCartney, as I've said before, is the guy in the TV studio complaining about "rules" that don't "work".

On the other hand, the 1970's McCartney with the mullet, the mustache, and the peach fuzz under the lower lip seems like a pretty good - uh - replica of an older version of the young McCartney. So do most of the photos taken more recently than that.

It wouldn't amaze me if stand-ins were used in the late 1960's for one routine purpose or another (or as a joke or a ploy), but that's a long way from showing that there was ever a PERMANENT replacement.

As far as your fear goes that my remarks might inspire inferior efforts from Iamaphoney imitators, well, let's wait and see.

I have as much reason as anyone to have a grudge against Iamaphoney, but I still derive tremendous entertainment from his videos and give him full credit as an artist.

I'd like to see a "Sing the Changes" effort from him or from at least one of his better imitators.

Try early 60's. Listen to any of the Beatles interviews (you can get 'em on CD from the Jerdens label) from 64 to 66 and the question "Do you use doubles?" comes up constantly. Obviously the press must have been chasing a few odd looking mop topped individuals only to find out they'd been misled. The Beatles were certainly not above using decoys of one sort or another as a way to get from one venue to the next.

Of course this doesn't tie into the PID fantasy that the Beatles before 1967 were angels sent from heaven who were as honest as boy scouts....

Anonymous said...

April 24, 2009 1:14 PM

So... you have doubt?

I'm pretty sure Paul isn't dead.

"Pretty sure" is a far cry from "know for a fact".

It is obvious phoney is more than one person. Therefore, I'm "pretty sure" Mike is a phoney.
Until someone proves otherwise, I'll stick with that.

Anonymous said...

In fact I'm rather surprised that no one making PID videos goes back to those early interviews considering the "doubles" question is asked multiple times. The group deny it of course because it would be bad for their image. For whatever reason PID is married to this sweet little innocent mop top Beatle bullshit based on cute haircuts and hand holding.

i met a walrus said...

what no one else has thought of is using a time machine to go back and ask paul if he is dead or was replaced, if only temporarily even.
i recommend not sending YENZ as he has a tendency to flip off people.
same goes for grandfather, his videos are too damn scary.
my vote is for mikey. he can sneak into some hotel room, that he will of course know where they are staying at ahead of time, hide in a closet, and... hey? didn't some kid do that already? to john lennon?

The weirdest-looking McCartney, as I've said before, is the guy in the TV studio complaining about "rules" that don't "work".

The video looks weird, anyway. It's poor quality, and there is a lot of noise and artifacts adding to the weirdness. He's also high.

Many months ago, I mentioned that I met a guy who was a Beatle decoy in the 60s. They had decoys--but they weren't what you'd call look alikes--you have to remember that in the early 60s (and even late 60s) a lot of people couldn't even tell one Beatle from another (except perhaps for Ringo). Even today, most non-fans can't tell you which Beatle sings which song--Anyone with a mop top could pass as a Beatle for distraction purposes.

Anonymous said...

Yeah, you can't jump to the conclusion that because Paul looks kind of funky in that poor video that it's an imposter, for heaven's sake. Paul has the kind of face that looks different depending on the lighting and his expressions, etc. This is true throughout his career, including 63-66.
