Vintage: Paul McCartney Drops Some Truth on the Media

A reporter from the BBC tries to push Paul McCartney into a corner about a prior admission that he had used LSD. Mr. Reporter tries the classic “As a public figure…” and “…don’t you have a responsibility” lines usually imposed upon celebrities caught doing something that the world’s concerned mothers, government censors and religious busy-bodies publicly disapprove of, and a young Paul ain’t havin’ none of it.

    This is something I just can’t understand. The very same peasants who are so quick to rationalize the real, tangible evils committed by their politicians and clergymen (e.g., assassination, paedophilia, etc.) are equally quick to demonize a victimless deviation from dietary norms comitted by a pop singer. It’s easy to see how one might feel that privilege and celebrity should come with costs, but why are they invoked only for trivial offenses?

    How about some truth over who he really is? That is Faul speaking. Clearly replaced at this video’s time.

      haha.
      worst. conspiracy theory. ever.

      Thank you! It is clearly Faul.

        Have you ever played in a band?
        Do you know how difficult it is to replace a member?
        …much less to find a look-alike, sound-alike, left-handed bassist, who is equally capable of writing some of the best pop melodies the world has ever heard?
        I love a good conspiracy theory, but this is next to impossible.

          There are far too many anomolies to overlook this story. If you investigate the whole concept of psyops (9/11, JFK) you’ll get past the conspiracy theory red herring and be amazed at what you don’t know.

          I will interview Tina of plasticmacca at radio.abirato.info this Saturday. Tune in.

            Oh, I have. I’ve been a member of Conspiracy Central for a long time.
            The morning of 9/11, I knew what was going down. My first thought was “Good god, what have they done, now?” and I wasn’t thinking about Middle Eastern terrorists.
            And I have looked into the Faul conspiracy.
            And for the reasons I have stated, I think this one is ridiculous.
            Perhaps even disinfo to make conspiracy theorists sound nuts.

            I agree with you about disinformation. I am just over the fence on this one. While I doubt Paul was killed, I do believe he was switched out for someone who would go with the plan. Even the Lennon assassination is suspicious and probably didn’t happen as we are told.

    If you watch the Anthology, the rest of The Beatles seemed a bit nonplussed about Paul’s claim.

    “Paul wouldn’t have LSD; he didn’t want it. So Ringo and Neil took it,
    while Mal stayed straight in order to take care of everything.”

    None of them had any knowledge of him doing it, and suspect this is a lie.

  • Mr B

    If Paul didn’t want to say anything, he obviously didn’t have to.

    Criticizing ‘concerned mothers’ smacks of misogyny (would a father approve/not care?); and coupled with ‘religious busy-bodies’ – nihilism.
