IMAGINE COMICS TO PUBLISH BEATLES FANTASY ‘Paul Is Dead: When The Beatles Lost McCartney’ IN APRIL

Image Comics to Publish Beatles Fantasy ‘Paul Is Dead: When The Beatles Lost McCartney’ in April

"Paul Est Mort" just published in France and Italy from Paolo Baron and Ernesto Carbonetti, is a new graphic novel that tells an alternate history of The Beatles – something that seems all the rage these days. And in April, it will be published in English by Image Comics.

Paul Is Dead: When The Beatles Lost McCartney tells a story behind the conspiracy theory that Paul McCartney died young and was replaced in The Beatles – and in life – by a lookalike.
Set in the magical atmosphere of Abbey Road Studios during the writing sessions for Sgt. Pepper.

DECCA AUDITION TAPE AMONG BEATLES-RELATED ITEMS TO BE AUCTIONED THIS WEEK

“This precious tape holds a special place in the annals of music history,” says Dr. Gabriel Heaton, Sotheby’s Books and Manuscripts Specialist. “This is a unique recording from the Beatles’ first commercial for Decca on New Year’s Day 1962—one of the first fruits of Brian Epstein's management and a huge opportunity for the young band"

DAVE GROHL REVEALS THE FIRST BEATLES’ SONG HE EVER HEARD

American rock band Foo Fighters‘ singer and guitarist Dave Grohl has just revealed his first The Beatles song he ever heard in a recent radio appearance.


Dave, who we know to have been a fan of The Beatles since his childhood, has stated that he’d heard the first The Beatles song at a sleepover at some friend’s house when he was four or five years old.
When they talk about the Hey Jude, he said that this is the first song he ever heard. His statement as follows:

    “The first Beatles song I’d ever heard, and it might be the first record I ever listened to. I remember having a sleepover at a friend’s house when I was maybe four or five years old and listening to Hey Jude. I don’t think I’d ever listened to a rock ‘n’ roll record, and this was my introduction, and it stuck with me ever since.”
