beatles alive & well (in osaka)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Elvis is still alive and working as a car mechanic in Des Moines; yeah, yeah, yeah, Princess Diana never copped it, she's stacking shelves in Harrods on weekends; yeah, yeah, yeah, Rod Hull hasn't passed on, he's studying for a degree in Aeronautical Engineering at Kent University. And yeah, yeah, yeah, you know as well as I do that all those sightings of the famous dead are a load of old guff.

However, I know one thing for sure. The Beatles, who not only split up but who also half died, ARE ACTUALLY ALIVE AND WELL. And what's more, they are continuing to ply their musical trade in the rock 'n' roll capital of Japan - Osaka.

There's no guffing to be had on this point - I've seen them for myself. Apart from a little plastic surgery around their eyes to help them blend in with the local community, there's no doubting their authenticity. It's John, Paul, George and Ringo. And there's not a hint of rotting flesh between them.

Strangely, they don't seem to be trying too hard to hide their identity, I mean, they're playing in a place called The Cavern for goodness gracious sake. However, they've cleverly renamed themselves The Bricks which, although it sounds a bit like The Beatles, is not similar enough to arouse suspicion.

So all Beatles fans may rejoice, for they are alive and well, and living in Osaka. Yeah, yeah, yeah!


From left to right: John, Ringo, Paul (playing the guitar right-handed for a change) and George.

And they don't look as old as they should either! A miracle! :D

Well, that explains how good they are...They must have sold their souls to the devil at a crossroads in Mississippi. And as a benefit they get to stay young until the contract is up. Good luck guys on buying back your rights, though. God only knows who MJ is in cahoots with?
