Macca possessed by George
He claims Harrison wrote song through him
26 Jul 05 - Paul McCartney has made the sensational claim that George Harrison wrote one of the songs on his new album, over three years after his death.
He says he was possessed by his old friend while writing the track Waiting For Your Friends To Go.
He told 6 Music:
"The funny thing about it was I felt as if I was almost George Harrison during the writing of that song.
"I just got this feeling, this is George. So it was like I was writing - I was like George - writing one of his songs.
"So I just wrote it, it just wrote itself very easily 'cause it wasn't even me writing it."...

I think it would take not only a whistleblower with first hand knowledge to go public, but in addition, there would need to be incontrovertible physical evidence (wouldn't be too hard to get that if forensic examinations would be court ordered).
LENNON: That ended, I don't know, around 1962 or something. If you give me the albums, I can tell you exactly who wrote what, and which line. We sometimes wrote together and sometimes didn't. But all our best work, apart from the early days, like "I Want To Hold Your Hand," we wrote together, and things like that, we wrote apart always. Even "One After 909" on the whatsit LP, it's one I wrote when I was seventeen or eighteen in Liverpool separate from Paul. "The Sun Is Fading Away" and things like that Paul wrote. We always wrote separately. But we wrote together because we enjoyed it a lot sometimes and also because they'd say, "You're going to make an album." We'd get together and knock off a few songs. Just like a job."
...Paul, 65, is unwilling to relinquish the house - situated on Heather Road - because of its "mysterious" ties to fellow Beatle George Harrison's death in November 2001.
The source added to a British newspaper: "Paul has never been a fan of California - he prefers the quiet life. But Heather Road became very important to him around the time of George's death.
There is still a mystery, known only to Paul, George's family and a few others about his final hours. His death certificate had a false address. It has been said he passed away in Heather Road in the presence of his wife Olivia and Hare Krishna mentors. Paul invited George to stay at the house just days before he died." ...
Paul McCartney's mansion battle
I just noticed that "Lady Madonna" does sound a lot like "One after 909," which sounds like the old "Rock Island Line." The catchy bassline of LM is taken from a 1950s swing hit, "Bad Penny Blues."

I lean towards the accident rather than assassination because although the biggest band in the world, they were just a band and hardly a threat to the system. In fact, it seems to me it was in the bad guy's interest to keep them going which appears to be what happened.
