Saw no post over this so here it is. It’s a fun (albeit meaningless) read.
Some of my favourites include:
“Due to business interests, Capitol Records released their albums completely re-configured in America. Without the Beatles was released as Meet the Mopheads and Thank Thank You was released as The Beatles’ Second Album, or Maybe the Third. At the time, fans didn’t know any better, but when they did, they were quite upset.”
“It all started in January 1980. John was excited for the 1980s. He was ready for another chance at success now that he had finsished writing his musical, but he decided to shelve it until he got enough money to put it on Broadway. And what better way to get a shitload of money really fast than to make an album? It had been five years since he made his last album, and he was finally ready to make another one. Of course, Yoko joined. This new album, titled Double Vision, was released in November. At first, everybody hated it, but then Mark Chapman killed John, so everybody loved it.”
“Ringo Starr was replaced by an orangutan from 1963 to 1968. Nobody noticed. They were busy looking at John to see if it really was John… or a walrus. No one knows for sure.”
