I find this video one of the more intriguing PID videos from iamaphoney.
Iamaphoney interviewed Emilio Lari, the Beatles photographer for the movie "Help." In the interview he seems clearly emotional while talking about Paul's death, and quite adamant that Paul was replaced by an imposter. It's eery when he mentions Paul's car crash. It is even possible he has photos of the crash if he's able to describe it the way he did in this interview.
But then it gets weird. Prior to the publishing of his book "The Beatles: Photographs from the Set of Help!", which you can buy on Amazon, Lari recants the whole interview. Here is an explanation that I believe makes the most sense.
From: beaconfilms2011.blogspot.com/2015/09/lari-recants.html “Well, call me suspicious, but the simultaneous release of a new book of Lari’s old Beatle photographs may have something to do with it. Presumably, Lari and his publishers would have needed Beatle consent to have published these images and maybe it was only granted on the condition that Lari drop all the Paul is Dead nonsense.”
Be sure to set CC to understand his thick Italian accent.
A decision was made by JoJo and the administers of this board back when iamaphoney first came out with his videos that they should be in a separate category from the Beatles' clues, and so they established The Rotten Apple section of the board for discussion of them. The thinking was that the Beatles' clues were obviously 'legit' in the sense that they were in the songs, and on the album covers, while iamaphoney's clues were coming from an unknown source, and they might or might not be valid.
I was not part of the admin of the board at that time, but I am still somewhat bound by their decision. At present, we allow some use of the iamaphoney videos in the regular section of the board if the content is pertinent to a particular discussion, and not debatable or questionable, as in - for instance - someone saying "Look at Paul's hair in this segment". But still, iamaphoney videos are considered to be in a class by themselves here. I personally have no problems with them, but I am obliged to abide by the rules that were made by others who came before me - at least 'in spirit', unless JoJo decrees otherwise.
So here's the deal:
I will leave this discussion here in the "General Board" section for now, but eventually it will be moved into the "Rotten Apple" section. Don't take it personally. Thank you for your understanding.
IMO it's OK if it stays here for a bit but it probably should go to IAAP section in a little while.
At the time, I think we decided that this material should go there because the IAAP material tended to be hmmm.. controversial and things got a bit rowdy. Not really the case now, I think the reason for keeping it in its own section nowadays would be so it's easier for those interested in IAAP subject matter to find it all in one place. (convenience)
Thanks as always B for your devotion and care of this site, I really appreciate it.
