Tho I am a bit of believer that he died and they replaced him, mostly because of the CD where they are dressed and walking in a special way (don't
remember the name of the CD!)
Why not do the same when Elvis died? I'm sure they were worried people would commit suicide..
And Death sells.. Look at any recording artist that has died and see how much they made posthumous versus alive
I'm not saying the story is complete rubbish, but after researching it all day, I have failed to see one person ask that simple question.. I've
heard why he was killed, but no one can answer why he was replaced, or who benefited from it
BTW: The album is Abbey Road.. It's an amazing album, i would highly suggest purchasing it and then immediately listen to #6: "I Want You (She's
So Heavy)" That guitar rift and the whole beat is in like 20 popular songs that came out within this year lol.. Shows how ahead of the curve they
