      I think the film was faked in future MTV studios then time traveled back to the 60s.

    I particularly like the picture showing the height comparisons...someone standing further away is going to look shorter than someone standing close by if they're the same height.

    BTW I'm an authority on this topic because there are several clones of me, and not all the copies turned out exactly the same.

      I was in a road band with a very short guitarist (5' 7") so we built a little platform (box) for him to stand on.

      Me? I'm not as tall as I used to be. Perhaps if my posture was better.

      Many people don't realize that the title for Pink Floyd's epic album The Dark Side Of The Moon was actually inspired by the first visits the astronauts took to Craig's place... which is why he can definitely say the Beatles never landed on the moon. If they did, he would have noticed.

        My first thought was that this was unbelievable, but on further reflection, I'm really not surprised that there's a site like that, or that there are people who sincerely believe it was a big conspiracy or some kind of hoax, with multiple people playing the role of each "Beatle." After all, it wasn't uncommon for fans to come up with all kinds of crazy theories about all sorts of Beatles related stuff. Anyone remember the whole Paul Is Dead thing? How about the Manson Family, "Helter Skelter" and their twisted interpretations of the White Album?

        What was it that John said about that stuff? Oh yeah, that's right - It was in the 1971 Rolling Stone interview:

        Were any of those things really on the album that were said to be there? The clues?

        No. That was bull****************, the whole thing was made up. We wouldn’t do anything like that. We did put in like “tit, tit, tit” in “Girl,” and many things I don’t remember, like a beat missing or something like that could be interpreted like that. Some people have got nothing better to do than study Bibles and make myths about it and study rocks and make stories about how people used to live. It’s just something for them to do. They live vicariously.

        Were the Beatles actually multiple people and not just the four? I can't imagine (sorry) the notoriously honest post-Beatle John Lennon going along with such a scheme - YMMV.

          Some people have plenty of spare time. Some create conspiracy theories, others, like myself, waste time reading them (as far as I can get) and waste even more time on forums such as this one.

        I have a friend who is a huge Beatles fan (as am I). He showed me several different web sites similar to that one, and had, as they say, drank the koolaid...

        My reaction to all this was: So what? If true, what does it matter? If false, what does it matter?
        He was aghast at my response. He said, No No you don't understand, this changes EVERYTHING!

        But he couldn't really tell me how this would change... well, anything.

          Actually, it doesn't matter.

          So many bands had "The Wrecking Crew", "The Swampers" or other great musicians record their tracks, but the records were great and even knowing that fact, I still enjoy them.

          I feel sorry for the original band members who then have to memorize the lines made up on the spot by the studio musicians.

        I'm not sure what drives people to come up with these theories. It sure seems to me they come up with the conspiracy theory first, and then try to come up with ways to justify it.

        I just wish all the time they put into this kind of endeavor could be allocated for my use...

          If they make up things about me (I should be so lucky) I do home that whatever they write about makes me seem like I'm have giant fun.

        The '60s never actually happened, so it follows that The Beatles never actually existed.

          Notes, the '60s were a dream, brought into existence by the power of the collective thoughts of drug-addled jazz musicians. The old saying 'If you remember the '60s you weren't really there' should read 'If you remember the '60s you were part of the dream.....man'

        Personally, I think a more interesting topic would be, what if The Beatles never existed?

          Thanks for backing me up on that, Phil. Elvis didn't see them either.

            Elvis showed up on our last gig, on Tuesday. He is fat, bald, but can still sing his ___ off!!! Left in a gold Cadillac (of course) and as he walked out, I announced "Elvis has left the building!"

            I'm glad someone came up with the moon, because I was thinking alien abduction and replacement myself.

            Thanks to all for taking this in the humor it was intended

            BTW, at one time there were several different Miracles, Platters, Four Tops and other groups touring the country at the same time, but I don't think they could have gotten away with that with the Beatles. Most of the public didn't know there were two "Jays" in Jay And The Americans, and one of them had to change his name to Jay (IMHO Jay #2 was a more capable singer).

            When radio and records were the media, you didn't really recognize any of the faces so it was easy to do. And when the record companies owned the name of the group, they could do whatever they wanted to maximize their profits.

            Many years ago I did gigs in the same venue as a guy who was a member of one of the touring Platters. We became good friends. He was never on any of the records, didn't sound like Tony Williams, but was a great singer and an excellent performer. His status as a former Platter on the bill made the audience love him before he hit the stage. And if the record company who owned the name of the Platters hired him, he was really one of the Platters. He delivered two excellent shows, and at the end of the show, everybody was happy.

              Or perhaps...

              He was "The Great Pretender," pretending that he was doing well. His need was such, he pretended too much.
