That’s OK, I prefer to stay out of the limelight anyway. I’m just curious about the thought process that went “Let’s have Joe! And Sting!”

Can we get Joe Meek and Delia Derbyshire in there?

The following people thank Joe for this post:

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I’ll hold my hands up to that one. I’m not sure on it. Though it should be noted that in the Hello, Goodbye  video, both John and Paul have lost their moustaches, Paul’s medal is in a different place on his jacket, and John’s hair is different. So, accepting it could be a fake, with Ringo the only one that’s not flown in, there’s been a lot of airbrushing to make it fit. But, yeah, good chance it’s a fake.

However, I did find this one, which there’s no doubt about, and it shows Hitler still standing off to the right.

The trouble is that many of the images have been clipped to squares. The only way to know for sure would be if the full wideshots that were taken were published. Then we could see if Adolf ever moved from that spot.

My own take on it is that they remember that they positioned Hitler, and are forgetting that they took him out. It would be interesting to get their reaction when looking at all the photographs that were taken.

@Billy Rhythm 

Well from personal experience or close second hand my father being a professional photographer, I would not rely heavily on memory. These guys take hundreds of thousands of photos. My father worked in darkroom era and he usually took more than then the digital era because you were not able to review it instantly. It would be easy to see how they thought he was behind them, the picture with him in would put him behind them, but then shows it removed. If he was taken out it would of been for good. Not saying they couldn’t of put him in, but usually they would have had the background set as the one to use. Not constantly change the background and people. Also, Epstien was still involved and no, Beatle has ever confirmed it. They already had controversy recently with Jesus comments, also Aleister Crowley was already on a very controversial figure. Hitler would of been crossing the line, which looks they caught.

Rob Ford would be MY mayor if I moved 10 miles to the east! :(

And there’s lots of Natty Boh and Utz Girl images out there!

@Joe , I started the Joe part of it. It was my enthusiasm for your site showing through.ahdn_paul_02ahdn_ringo_09

So, since Joe doesn’t want to be on the cover, I still have one person to pick for my three choices (according to the rules first set out for this thread). Do you still want that rule in place @Von Bontee ?

Give me sometime to choose #3 carefully.

Sorry, no ‘biblers allowed! Not you, not myself (-selves), not mr. sun king coming together, not even Joe! (In fact, if I was re-starting this thread today, I’d put in a “no living persons under the age of 65” rule. And probably a few others, depending on how capricious I was feeling at the moment…)

Probably good rules… How old is Sting now? 62! Is that close enough?

What if sting had a Beatle bible account then how would we know who is a bibler or not a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

 

That’d be cool, but good question

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

Natty Boh would be good!

And @Joe I was just agreeing with AG and thought Sting would be good. If my brain went from Joe to Sting that would be and interesting thought process. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I’m sticking with Sting and adding EC and Hendrix. And Jack Bruce.

One-year-later answer…I don’t even remember my “rules” – I probably just thought them up on the spot because somebody suggested Oasis, and I don’t like them! (1st album’s not half bad, I guess, if you’re short on rock albums…) Choose whoever you wish heartapple02

GEORGE: In fact, The Detroit Sound. JOHN: In fact, yes. GEORGE: In fact, yeah. Tamla-Motown artists are our favorites. The Miracles. JOHN: We like Marvin Gaye. GEORGE: The Impressions PAUL & GEORGE: Mary Wells. GEORGE: The Exciters. RINGO: Chuck Jackson. JOHN: To name but eighty.
