A BEATLES' HARD-DIE'S SITE

Is Paul McCartney dead? The Sgt. Pepper clues...

The front cover was a gem of a find: one sees the four Beatles all holding instruments which are inappropriate to them. But of the four, only Paul is holding a wooden for coffin instrument it’s also black for death. Also three Beatles are facing the camera at an angle but Paul appears straight on as if he were being propped up by Ringo and George.
The whole cover is a grave scene with the word “Beatles” being spelled out in flowers— red hyacinths, the mythological flower of death. The yellow flowers have been interpreted as being a left-handed bass guitar complete with strings. Or, if one looks sideways, the yellow flowers resemble a “P” for Paul.

The personalities on the album are interesting. John Lennon on Tony Palmer's “All You Need is Love” TV series comments that “the people on the Sergeant Pepper cover…two are flying, two are not.” Apparently an inside joke, whatever the inside joke is. Let's look at the personalities. This is a great album to have in front of you as you listen to the "Is Paul Dead Radio show."
First, Paul is the only one with a hand over his head—a symbol of death representing the hand of a religious leader who blesses the body before it's interned. The owner of this hand, who is staring at Paul, is the writer Stephen Crane most famous for his war story “The Red Badge of Courage.” Mr. Crane himself died when he was 28 years old. Another one of Mr. Crane short stories is called “The Open Boat” and concerns four men who struggle to survive in a lifeboat. The one most determined to keep the group together dies in the ordeal; the other three then act as interpreters of the event.
Other famous but dead people looking at Paul includes. Edgar Allan Poe himself died in a tragic death; Marilyn Monroe, a suicide victim; James Dean, who died in a cycle crash; Jayne Mansfield, decapitated in a car crash; and the other dead Beatle, Stuart Sutcliffe. There seems to be quite a collection of dead heroes.

The cover of Sergeant Pepper conveniently opens up. The inside photo again shows Paul being propped up by two other Beatles: Paul in the fetal position, which is how Indians bury their dead. A closer look at Paul’s uniform shows his white bars and epaulets trimmed in black for death. But the real clincher that theorists felt was on his left arm. Paul is wearing a patch which reads O.P.D. which in England stands for “Officially Pronounced Dead” —in America the equivalent to D.O.A. “Dead On Arrival”.

The back cover of Sergeant Pepper also holds some clues. Of the four Beatles, only Paul has his back towards the camera in the same pose as his body is on the front cover. Notice also that the braids on the other three Beatles are now on their left sides, whereas on the front the braids were on the right. These braids have been consciously changed as wearing them on the left side is part of the military funeral dress code in England. Paul also has three black buttons on his coat representing the mourning of the other three Beatles. Finally notice George's hand is pointing to a line of lyrics “Wednesday morning at five o'clock” this is the time that theorists say Paul was O.P.D: Officially Pronounced Dead after his tragic accident during the night.

On the back cover of the original album, George appears to be pointing at the words "Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins", which was supposed to have been the time of Paul's fatal accident. Note: the picture of the Beatles that originally appeared on the back cover of the LP is shown on pages 12 and 13 of the CD booklet, but the lyrics are not presented in the same way as they were on the LP. Also Paul has his back to the camera on the back cover of Sgt. Peppers.

The music was loaded with clues. It's the first time we hear about Billy Shears and William Campbell. William Campbell had won a Paul McCartney look a like contest a year earlier in Scotland and was carefully trained and groomed in Paul McCartney's music style, to replace the dead Beatle. The Beatles refer to him in the title song on the Sgt. Peppers album and introduce him to us as Billy Shears.
William Cambpell from Scotland has not been heard from since the famous Paul McCartney look a like contest in 1965. Is Paul McCartney Dead?
Now for a little history of the Sgt. Peppers album.. Now for a little history of the Sgt. Peppers album..
Other lyrics in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band had some strong things to say:

It was twenty years ago today
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play
They've been going in and out of style
But they're guaranteed to raise a smile
So may I introduce to you
The act you've known for all these years
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the show
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Sit back and let the evening go
Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
It's wonderful to be here
It's certainly a thrill
You're such a lovely audience
We'd like to take you home with us
We'd love to take you home

I don't really want to stop the show
But I thought that you might like to know
That the singer's going to sing a song
And he wants you all to sing along
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band


It was rumored in 1969 that Billy Shears was the name of a band leader in England. When he died in 1947 he said that he would be resurrected in 20 years. The LP was released in 1967.

“With a Little Help From My Friends”

What would you think if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends

What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you're on your own?)
No I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

(Would you believe in a love at first sight?)
Yes I'm certain that it happens all the time
(What do you see when you turn out the light?)
I can't tell you, but I know it's mine
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Oh I'm going to try with a little help from my friends

(Do you need anybody?)
I just need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
I want somebody to love

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm going to try with a little help from my friends
Oh I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends
With a little help from my friends


A Little help from my friends, the theorists contend that Billy Campbell who is filling in, was the Billy shears that they spoke of. “What would do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?” He's not yet able to get the voice just right, so he's trying to stay in tune.

Reviews...

"Until now, The Beatles story has been simply incomplete"
From 1970 onwards the disbanded Beatles were at last free to follow their individual interests. From that point on there were four separate stories... but they were stories that would form a complex overlapping history of quarrels and reconciliations, personal projects and sporadic collaborations.

For the first time ever, a noted Beatles expert has meticulously documented the entire period of The Beatles after the break-up.
Keith Badman has produced a dazzling and astonishingly detailed day-by-day chronicle of what each of the ex-Beatles did from April 1970 onwards.
It's all here, day by day. All the ... concerts ... solo releases ... known meetings between ex-Beatles ... film, TV and radio appearances ...business deals,legal battles and personal feuds ... Beatles-related births, marriages and deaths.

Starkly punctuated by the murder of John Lennon, here is the as-it-happened story of four individuals emerging from the straitjacket of pop music's greatest ever success story. And for the first time ever their solo careers are shown to be every bit as fascinating as their legendary decade together.
With an introduction by Miles, author of The Beatles: A Diary and Many Years From Now, the authorised biography of Paul McCartney.
Fully illustrated with scores of pictures documenting John, Paul, George and Ringo... after the break-up.

The Beatles After The Break-Up 1970-2000 is the first book ever to catalogue just about everything that John, Paul, George and Ringo did after the group disbanded ... every record, every concert, every TV and radio appearance, every interview ... and much more besides. Every Beatle related event is covered, whether it be as awesome as thetragic death of John, or as predictable as the staggering prices reached in yet another auction of memorabilia.

Author Keith Badman has listed every known encounter between John, Paul, George and Ringo, for whatever reason, whenever and wherever it took place. Included are details of meetings both important and trivial, in the studio, on stage and in their lawyers' chambers. Here are extracts from key interviews which explain the ebbs and flows of the complex relationships between the four, and later three, surviving Beatles.
Here is the ongoing saga of popular music's most enduring 20th Century romance... a comprehensive history of the greatest pop group of them all.
Carries on where Lewisohn's "Chronicle" leaves off. Simply a diary of EVERY Beatle event from 1970 to the present day.

Their Own Records In Their Own Words - Rubber Soul and surroundings


DRIVE MY CAR
(Lennon/McCartney)
GEORGE 1977: "If Paul had written a song, he'd learn all the parts and then come in the studio and say 'Do this.' He'd never give you the opportunity to come out with something. But on 'Drive My Car' I just played the line, which is really like a lick off 'Respect,' you know, the Otis Redding version. And I played the line on the guitar and Paul laid that with me on the bass. We laid that track down like that. We played the lead part later on top of it."

JOHN 1980: "His (Paul's) song, with contributions from me."

PAUL circa-1994: "This is one of the songs where John and I came nearest to having a dry session. The lyrics I brought in were something to do with golden rings, which are always fatal (to songwriting). 'Rings' is fatal anyway, 'rings' always rhymes with things and I knew it was a bad idea. I came in and I said, 'These aren't good lyrics but it's a good tune.' Well, we tried, and John couldn't think of anything, and we tried, and eventually it was, 'Oh let's leave it, let's get off this one.' 'No, no. We can do it, we can do it.' So we had a break... then we came back to it, and somehow it became 'drive-my-car' instead of 'gol-den-rings,' and then it was wonderful-- because this nice tongue-in-cheek idea came."

NORWEGIAN WOOD
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1972: "Me. But Paul helped me on the lyric."

GEORGE 1980: "I had bought, earlier, a crummy sitar in London... and played the 'Norwegian Wood' bit."

JOHN 1980: "'Norwegian Wood' is my song completely. It was about an affair I was having. I was very careful and paranoid because I didn't want my wife, Cyn, to know that there really was something going on outside of the household. I'd always had some kind of affairs going on, so I was trying to be sophisticated in writing about an affair... but in such a smoke-screen way that you couldn't tell. But I can't remember any specific woman it had to do with."

PAUL 1985: "It was me who decided in 'Norwegian Wood' that the house should burn down... not that it's any big deal."

YOU WON'T SEE ME
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "Paul."

PAUL circa-1994: "Normally I write on guitar and have full chords, or on piano and have full chords, but this was written around two little notes, a very slim phrase-- a two-note progression that I had very high on the first two strings of the guitar... Then I wrote the tune for 'You Won't See Me' against it. It was 100 percent me, but I am always happy to give John a credit because there's always a chance that on the session he might have said, 'That'd be better.'"

NOWHERE MAN
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "I'd spent five hours that morning trying to wite a song that was meaningful and good, and I finally gave up and lay down. Then 'Nowhere Man' came, words and music... the whole damn thing, as I lay down. So letting it go is what the whole game is. You put your finger on it, it slips away, right? You know, you turn the lights on and the cockroaches run away. You can never grasp them."

PAUL 1984: "That was John after a night out, with dawn coming up. I think at that point in his life, he was a bit wondering where he was going."

PAUL 1988: "I remember we wanted very treble-y guitars-- which they are-- they're among the most treble-y guitars I've ever heard on record. The engineer said, 'Alright, I'll put full treble on it,' and we said, 'That's not enough.' He said, 'But that's all I've got.' And we replied, 'Well, put that through another lot of faders and put full treble up on that. And if that's not enough we'll go through another lot of faders.' They said, 'We don't do that,' and we would say, 'Just try it... if it sounds crappy we'll lose it, but it might just sound good.' You'd then find, 'Oh it worked,' and they were secretly glad because they had been the engineer who put three times the allowed value of treble on a song. I think they were quietly proud of those things."

THINK FOR YOURSELF
(Harrison)
GEORGE 1980: "'Think For Yourself' must be written about somebody from the sound of it-- but all this time later I don't quite recall who inspired that tune. Probably the government."

THE WORD
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "'The Word' was written together (with Paul), but it's mainly mine. You read the words, it's all about gettin' smart. It's the marijuana period. It's love. It's a love and peace thing. The word is 'love,' right?"

PAUL circa-1994: "We smoked a bit of pot, then we wrote out a multi-colored lyric sheet, the first time we'd ever done that. We normally didn't smoke when we were working."

MICHELLE
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1972: "Both of us. I wrote the middle with him."

PAUL 1977: "'Michelle' was like a joke French tune for when you go to a party or something. That's all it was. And then after a while you say, 'Well, that's quite a good tune. Let's put some real words to it.'"

JOHN 1980: "He and I were staying somewhere and he walked in and hummed the first few bars, with the words, and he says, 'Where do I go from here?' I had been listening to (blues singer) Nina Simone. I think it was 'I Put A Spell On You.' There was a line in it that went, 'I love you, I love you.' That's what made me think of the middle-eight for 'Michelle.' So, my contributions to Paul's songs was always to add a little bluesy edge to them. Otherwise, 'Michelle' is a straight ballad, right? He provided a lightness, an optimism, while I would always go for the sadness, the discords, the bluesy notes."

PAUL 1988: "I'll never forget putting the bass line in 'Michelle' because it was a kind of Bizet thing. It really turned the song around. You could do that with bass. It was very exciting."

WHAT GOES ON
(Lennon/McCartney/Starkey)
RINGO 1966: "I contributed about five words to "What Goes On.' (laughs) And I haven't done a thing since!"

JOHN 1972: "A very early song of mine. Ringo and Paul wrote a new middle-eight together when we recorded it."

JOHN 1980: "That was an early Lennon, written before the Beatles when we were the Quarrymen or something like that. And resurrected with a middle-eight thrown in, probably with Paul's help, to give Ringo a song... and also to use the bits, because I never liked to waste anything."

GIRL
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "That's me, writing about this dream girl-- the one that hadn't come yet. It was Yoko."

PAUL circa-1994: "It was John's original idea, but it was very much co-written. I remember writing 'the pain and pleasure,' and 'a man must break his back.' ...It was amusing to see if we could get a naughty word on the record. The Beach Boys had a song out where they'd done 'la la la la' and we loved the innocence of that and wanted to copy it but not use the same phrase. So we were looking around for another phrase-- 'dit dit dit dit,' which we decided to change it in our waggishness to 'tit tit tit tit.' And it gave us a laugh. It was good to get some light relief in the middle of this real big career that we were forging. If we could put in something that was a little bit subversive then we would. George Martin would say, 'Was that dit-dit or tit-tit you were singing?' 'Oh! dit-dit George, but it does sound a bit like that, doesn't it?' Then we'd get in the car and break down laughing."

I'M LOOKING THROUGH YOU
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "Paul. He must have had an argument with Jane Asher."

PAUL circa-1994: "As is one's wont in relationships, you will from time to time argue or not see eye to eye on things, and a couple of the songs around this period were that kind of thing... I would write it out in a song and then I've got rid of the emotion. I don't hold grudges so that gets rid of that little bit of emotional baggage... I think it's my song totally. I don't remember any of John's assistance."

IN MY LIFE
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "It was the first song I wrote that was consciously about my life. (Sings) 'There are places I'll remember/ All my life though some have changed...' Before, we were just writing songs a la Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly -- pop songs with no more thought to them than that. The words were almost irrelevant. 'In My Life' started out as a bus journey from my house at 250 Menlove Avenue to town, mentioning every place I could remember. I wrote it all down and it was ridiculous... it was the most boring sort of 'What I Did On My Holiday's Bus Trip' song and it wasn't working at all. But then I laid back and these lyrics started coming to me about the places I remember. Paul helped with the middle-eight. It was, I think, my first real major piece of work. Up till then it had all been sort of glib and throw-away. And that was the first time I consciously put my literary part of myself into the lyric."

PAUL 1984: "I think I wrote the tune to that; that's the one we slightly dispute. John either forgot or didn't think I wrote the tune. I remember he had the words, like a poem... sort of about faces he remembered. I recall going off for half an hour and sitting with a Mellotron he had, writing the tune... which was Miracles inspired, as I remember. In fact, a lot of stuff was then."

IF I NEEDED SOMEONE
(Harrison)
GEORGE 1980: "'If I Needed Someone' is like a million other songs written around a D chord. If you move your finger about you get various little melodies. That guitar line, or variations on it, is found in many a song, and it amazes me that people still find new permutations of the same notes."

RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "It has a line from an old Presley song. 'I'd rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man' is a line from an old blues song that Presley did once. Just sort of a throw-away song of mine that I never thought much of... but it was always a favorite of George's."

WE CAN WORK IT OUT
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1980: "Paul did the first half, I did the middle-eight. But you've got Paul writing, 'We can work it out/ We can work it out' real optimistic, you know. And me, impatient, 'Life is very short and there's no time/ for fussing and fighting, my friend.'"

PAUL circa-1994: "I wrote it as more of an up-tempo thing, country and western. I had the basic idea, the title, had a couple of verses... then I took it to John to finish it off and we wrote the middle together, which is nice-- 'Life is very short/ And there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend.' Then it was George Harrison's idea to put the middle into waltz time, like a german waltz... The lyrics might have been personal. It is often a good way to talk to someone or to work your thoughts out. It saves you going to a psychiatrist, you allow yourself to say what you might not say in person."

DAY TRIPPER
(Lennon/McCartney)
JOHN 1972: "Me. But I think Paul helped with the verse."

JOHN 1980: "That's mine. Including the guitar lick, the guitar break, and the whole bit. It's just a rock 'n roll song. Day trippers are people who go on a day trip, right? Usually on a ferry boat or somethng. But it was kind of-- you know, you're just a weekend hippie. Get it?"

PAUL circa-1994: "Acid was coming on the scene, and we'd often do these songs about 'the girl who thought she was it.' Mainly the impetus for that used to come from John-- I think John met quite a few girls who thought they were it... But this was just a tongue-in-cheek song about someone who was a day tripper, a sunday painter, a sunday driver, somebody who was committed only in part to the idea. Where we saw ourselves as full-time trippers, fully committed drivers, she was just a day tripper. That was a co-written effort-- we were both making it all up but I would give John the main credit."


ON SONGWRITING (DURING THE RUBBER SOUL PERIOD)
PAUL 1965: "Sometimes I've got a guitar in my hands, sometimes I'm sitting at a piano. It depends, whatever instrument I'm on, I write with. Everytime it's different."

ON RECORDING (DURING THE RUBBER SOUL PERIOD)
JOHN 1968: "We got involved completely in ourselves then. I think it was 'Rubber Soul' when we did all our own numbers. Something just happened. We controlled it a bit. Whatever it was we were putting over, we just tried to control it a bit."

JOHN 1971: "We were just getting better, technically and musically, that's all. Finally we took over the studio. In the early days we had to take what we were given-- we didn't know how you can get more bass. We were learning the technique on 'Rubber Soul.' We were more precise about making the album, that's all. And we took over the cover and everything."

GEORGE 1977: "I liked when we got into Rubber Soul... Each album had something good about it and progressed."

PAUL 1988: "We'd started to learn what was involved (in the control room), and it was all so fascinating being allowed to do it. As we got more power they started to let us sit there during a mix. Then you'd say, 'I don't want to interfere, Geoff (Emerick), but push my guitar up!' With two guitarists-- with John and George-- it was always John saying, 'put that up a bit,' and then George would come in and put his up a bit."

Writing The Beatles' first contract

As The Beatles' first contract sells for £240,000, the man who drew it up reflects on how he came to write a piece of musical history.

The Beatles' original contract between themselves and Brian Epstein has fetched £240,000 at auction.
The document, which was drawn up in 1962 went under the hammer at an auction of rock memorabilia in London on 4 September, 2008.
It was written by Liverpool solicitor and now retired district judge, David Harris, "I was a young solicitor with Silverman and Livermore, I'd been made a partner in the middle of 1961 and I was doing general litigation," recalls David.
David Harris knew of Brian Epstein, but had never acted as solicitor for him when he was approached to write a contract between Epstein and The Beatles.

"It was in December 1961 and I got a call at the office from Brian, for whom I'd never previously acted.
"He said that he was interested in a group called The Beatles, which meant nothing to me at all, and he said he's like me to draw up a contract between him and them.
"That was in the middle of December and he wanted it before Christmas, therefore, I had to work very hard to draw up this contract as after all it was a new sphere for me, and in fact we got it out in time."

The contract signed by The Beatles and Brian Epstein in 1962

Never signed

This first contract was never signed by Brian Epstein who vowed not to sign it until it he had secured a recording contract for the group.
"At that time in late December 1961 Pete Best was still the drummer," David Harris remembers. "Initially the contracts were all done in Brian's name, as an individual, but then things progressed.
"He realised it was more sensible to form a company, and in fact I formed the company for him, NEMS Enterprise Ltd, which meant of course there had to be a further contract drawn up between the new company and the group."
This contract, the successor of the one David Harris wrote in such a hurry in December 1961, is now hailed as one of the most important in rock and roll, marking the beginning of the groups journey to international stardom.


The contract is signed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
The signatures of Harold Harrison and James McCartney, George and Paul's parents are also featured as their consent was needed because their sons were under 21.
Ted Owen, the managing director of The Fame Bureau, which is holding the auction has described it as "one of the most important documents in music history."
David Harris says Brian Epstein acted very properly throughout the process, "I was very concerned, and he was too, that their parents should be fully involved.
"They were of an age when it was necessary and desirable that the parents knew exactly what was going on.
"He did say he wanted to be scrupulously fair to them and did not want to take advantage of them.

At the time the contract was just one of many items of legal paperwork that David Harris was working on, it was only later as The Beatle's became superstars that he realised the significance of his contribution to musical history.
"Yes, it was a surprise that things happened so quickly," says David Harris.
"They did extremely well, they were very talented and are very talented."

Beatles Rock Band gets artwork, two-singer rumor


Fans of the fab four and video games have plenty to celebrate, as the official box art for Beatles Rock Band has been revealed, and rumors abound that the title will allow two singers on certain tracks!

GoNintendo has culled a rumor from the May issue of Game Informer that may mark a major shift in Rock Band song possibilities. According to the "Loose Talk" gossip section of the magazine, The Beatles: Rock Band will allow multiple singers on songs, in order to better replicate the harmonies brought forth by the Fab Four. The rumor bit also mentions the possibility of user-created downloads in future Rock Band titles.
On the confirmed front, Kotaku debuted the box art for the standalone and bundled versions of The Beatles: Rock Band. You can get a nice look at a pastiche of all the covers on Kotaku, or hit up the Amazon pages for each version to get a higher resolution image of each game separately.
The Beatles: Rock Band will release on September 9th on the Wii, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

More on Paddy Delaney (under requests)

Patrick Delaney, doorman: born 5 October 1931, Liverpool; married Margaret (deceased, four daughters, two sons); died Liverpool 7 February 2009.

First impressions count and during the Cavern Club's heyday in the 1960s, the first person you would see was the so-called "gentle giant", Paddy Delaney, standing in the doorway. He had come to the Cavern as its doorman in 1959 and after clearing out the rough element, he kept it trouble free during the historic Merseybeat years.
The Cavern, in the basement of a warehouse in Mathew Street in Liverpool's city centre, had opened in 1957 as a jazz club. Two years later, its new manager, Ray McFall, wanted to resolve its problems and hired Delaney, a former guardsman who worked at the Locarno, a Liverpool dance hall. Delaney's fee was initially £1 a night, but his prowess in the job meant that McFall quickly increased it to £1.10s (£1.50).

"I had read about the trouble with Teddy Boys in the Liverpool Echo," Delaney told me once, "and I knew I had to sort it out. I did get a broken jaw because someone came at me from behind, but I put five of them in hospital one night. My main rule was that when people were banned, they were banned for life. Too many clubs let them back after a week or so and then the trouble started again. I told Ray McFall that I could clean the place up, but it would take three months and I'd need more men. That's the story and I never looked back. I was there until it was demolished in 1973."
Delaney carried out his job very effectively: he knew how to resolve disputes and how to escort troublemakers off the premises peacefully. He once criticised me for calling him a bouncer. "Never call me that," he said. "I always thought that people were human beings and that they were paying good money to come and see the show and also paying my wages. Nowadays a fella who's never had a dinner suit on before thinks it's a licence to belt anyone who says a word out of place."

McFall and his DJ, Bob Wooler, soon took the club in the direction of beat music and the Beatles made the first of their historic 275 appearances in February 1961. The basement club, which only had one entrance (with incredibly steep steps), was frequently packed way beyond capacity. With its appalling ventilation and dreadful toilets, it was undeniably a health and safety risk, but no one complained.
Delaney's hero was Al Jolson and he would often perform or mime his songs in Liverpool pubs and clubs, even singing "Mammy" at the Cavern. "I used to like to jump on stage while the groups were packing up their equipment and do a few songs. One of my greatest fans was George Harrison. He used to sit down and listen to them."
Delaney let Brian Epstein into the club on 9 November 1961 to see the Beatles, paving the way for one of the most celebrated relationships in rock'n'roll history. Delaney also witnessed the Beatles' final appearance at the Cavern on 3 August 1963. "The crowds outside were going mad. By the time John Lennon had got through the cordon of girls, his mohair jacket had lost a sleeve. I grabbed it to stop a girl getting away with a souvenir. John stitched it back on. They may have altered their style elsewhere, but they didn't do it when they played at the Cavern. They were the same old Beatles, with John saying, 'OK, tatty-head, we're going to play a number for you.' There was never anything sophisticated about his introductions."

Delaney had a large family to support and as well as spending the daytime delivering the Mersey Beat newspaper he undertook various odd jobs to make ends meet. He also managed the beat group the Nomads and secured them a record contract with Decca, where they became the Mojos and had a Top 10 hit with "Everything's Alright".
The Cavern became a victim of its own success as McFall expanded too rapidly, leading the club into bankruptcy in 1966. Delaney organised a siege to keep out the bailiffs, and when the police came, he was the last to leave. The club reopened under new management and kept going for seven years, by which time it was a heavy metal venue and subject to a compulsory purchase order.

Delaney had a succession of jobs after leaving the Cavern – notably, patrolling Liverpool's parks – and he supported his wife, Margaret, a local councillor. He advised the architect, David Backhouse, on his plans to rebuild the Cavern, and the new premises opened in 1984. The Cavern's original entrance is now marked with a life-size photograph of Paddy standing in the doorway. "That's the story of my life," he would muse. "I've spent my whole life standing in a doorway."

He always wore a tuxedo and rigorously enforced the club's dress code - ticking off John Lennon and George Harrison for their sloppy attire.

Father-of-six Mr Delaney died on Saturday morning aged 77, having deteriorated rapidly after a fall.

His son Lawrence Delaney, 40, said: "Everyone knew dad for his days at the Cavern.

"He once saw John Lennon in that green combat jacket he always wore and said 'You're going nowhere'.

"John protested that he was playing that night so dad relented and let him in but told him to smarten himself up.

"They became good friends and used to go for drinks in the Grapes a lot together.

"George Harrison was the same. He stopped him because he was wearing jeans."

Mr Delaney, whose wife Margaret died in 2003 and who leaves 12 grandchildren, took the job in 1960 for £1 a night.

He knew everything that went on in Mathew Street, and once stepped in after seeing Bill Clinton being hassled in the Grapes in the 1960s.

He also helped police cope with protesting fans when the Cavern club closed in 1973, and was the last person to leave the famous building.

His knowledge of the club was so great he was enlisted to help re-build it in the absence of blueprints in the mid 1980s.

His son said: "I used to nickname him Forrest Gump. It was almost like he stepped in and out of history."

Mr Delaney, who lived in Netherley, was a former guardsman who joined the Liverpool Parks Police.

Paddy Delaney, the gentle giant who guarded the Cavern during the Beatles years

Paddy Delaney was the doorman at Liverpool's legendary Cavern Club in the 1960s. The 'gentle giant' had come to the Cavern as its doorman in 1959 and after clearing out the rough element, kept it trouble-free during the historic Merseybeat years.

The Cavern, in the basement of a warehouse in Mathew Street in the city centre, had opened in 1957 as a jazz club. Two years later, its new manager, Ray McFall, wanted to resolve its problems and hired Delaney, a former guardsman.
Delaney carried out his job very effectively. He knew how to resolve disputes and how to escort troublemakers off the premises peacefully.

McFall and his DJ, Bob Wooler, soon took the club in the direction of beat music and the Beatles made the first of their 275 appearances in February 1961. Delaney let Brian Epstein into the club on November 9, 1961, to see the Beatles, paving the way for one of the most celebrated relationships in rock'n'roll history. Delaney also witnessed the Beatles' final appearance at the Cavern on August 3, 1963.
"The crowds outside were going mad. By the time John Lennon had got through the cordon of girls, his mohair jacket had lost a sleeve. I grabbed it to stop a girl getting away with a souvenir. John stitched it back on."

But the Cavern expanded too rapidly, leading the club into bankruptcy in 1966. Its original entrance is now marked with a life-size photograph of Paddy standing in the doorway.
"That's the story of my life," he would muse. "I've spent my whole life standing in a doorway."

The Beatles White Album #5 Tops Auction Sales


Beatles Top Vinyl Record Collectibles For Second Year

Each Record Store Day, Counter-Clock Records publishes their list of top vinyl record sales from the auction site eBay for the previous year. The annual list focuses on top monthly sales, taken from Top 5 lists published weekly.
For the second year, a Beatles White Album has topped the list. In 2008, a White Album numbered #0000006 sold for around $21,000.00.
This year, a White Album #0000005 sold for appoximately $30,000.00. Both records were originally pressed by Apple Records in the United Kingdom.

Other artists making this year's list include Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Tool. A number of records out of England's Northern Soul scene also make this years list.
Vinyl records continue to evade extinction and provide both music and artifact to fans worldwide, as well as support a very stable collectibles market, even during current economic conditions.

Wu-Tang Clan (with Erykah Badu, John Frusciante, and Dhani Harrison)
On Wu-Tang Clan's latest album, 8 Diagrams, they recorded a song called "The Heart Gently Weeps" which contains elements of The Beatles song "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". The start of the song has a guitar solo-like intro played by Red Hot Chili Peppers's guitarist John Frusciante then it is followed by singing similar to the singing in While My Guitar Gently Weeps, with rhyming of the same and everything. Then, the actual Wu-Tang Clan Members come in with the song itself.
