On This Day: The Beatles Arrive in New York

On Feb. 7, 1964, the Beatles were greeted by thousands of screaming fans as they landed at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York to begin their first American tour, highlighted by three performances on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

1964 the lads came to the USA and what excitement they caused. Never seen haircuts like theirs and never heard music like those blokes played.Nobody has caused such mania since that day.

It is a very special day because Paul was with them on the flight over to America and landed in NYC with the rest of the Beatles. Sadly, he would be replaced 2 1/2 years later.

Yeah he got replaced by a guy that is named James Paul McCartney and the guy looks just like him and sounds just like him too. The guy is rich and on David Letterman he said he is the guy that the world knows as Sir Paul Mccartney imagine that. He is even left handed man and was married to Linda and witch Heather Mills.Now where did this replacement come from maybe Liverpool England huh?

Wrong wrong wrong. He was replaced by a look-alike named William Campbell who was right-handed and taught to play bass guitar left-handed. The voice is not exactly the same but it's close enough to pass without promoting too much scrunity. He had extensive coaching on the voice. The replacement did not come from Liverpool. William Campbell is from Toronto, Canada. If you had seen the undeniable forensic evidence which clearly shows the marked differences between Paul McCartney and William Campbell, things would be much more clear to you. There are several websites devoted to this subject that discloses forensic evidence brought to light by two Italian scientists that prove beyond all doubt that the original Paul McCartney is not the same "Paul" that appeared in late 1966 that played with the Beatles in their last concert in Candlestick Park. A few years later, they did that "rooftop" concert but it obviously was a much smaller event. Also when he was on David Letterman, he was asked about how people always question whether he is the real Paul and the rumors about how he was replaced by a guy that looks very much like him, to which Paul nervously responded, "this is him" and then immediately got a sheepish look on his face like he screwed up and let the cat out of the bag. Then Letterman broke the tension by saying " or is it?" and everyone starting laughing which came as a great relief to Faul.

YEah, they really should have been singing about about real issues like elvis did when he sang about prison rape.

Number forty-seven said to number three:
You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see.
I sure would be delighted with your company,
Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me.
Lets rock, everybody, lets rock.
Everybody in the whole cell block
Was dancin to the jailhouse rock.
