Zing album covers scrubbing lyrics for hidden meanings and generally working way too hard to come up with spooky numeric coincidences to support his theory Like the Paul is Dead theory I don t buy one word of it unlike the Paul is Dead theory however this one is neither fascinating nor ven all that convincing Niezgoda s theories and his interpretations of vents lyrics and images are almost always ye rollingly dopey and ultimately reuire normous leaps in logic or imagination to make lyrics album covers or anything lse fit his theoryPart of the problem is that Niezgoda is completely humorless Sarcasm satire puns and plays on words are completely lost on him Lennon s wit one of his most nduring traits baffles Niezgoda as does Lennon s use of metaphor and delight in wordplay And Niezgoda who calls himself a life long Beatles fan collector and scholar doesn t seem to be able to put Lennon or his uotes in context He can t tell when Lennon is joking bragging or being dismissive He s absolutely tone deafAnyway to spare you from ver having to read this thing I m going to give you a rundown of some of Niezgoda s claims to give you an idea of just how loopy and how spurious Niezgoda and his claims can beEarly on in a chapter titled Bewitchery of the Masses Niezgoda asks how to xplain the normous ffect the Beatles had on their fans How does one account for the swooning the fainting the screaming Could it perhaps be their undeniable charisma or talent Ridiculous Niezgoda says those are xactly the kinds of intangible and indescribable ualities that manager Brian Epstein and producer George Martin ascribed to the band and they re indescribable Niezgoda says because they were a gift from the Devil So Niezgoda s first vidence of demonic influence is Beatlemania itself in all its inexplicable unexplainable wonderIt s not nough to sell one s sell to the Devil though as Niezgoda xplains arnestly one must also do all he can to actively deride God and religion Therefore any time Lennon mentions God religion Christ or his soul Niezgoda pounces While he naturally makes hay of the bigger than Jesus statement though not as much as one might Le valeureux guerrier expect giving it onlyight pages any other reference to God is dissected looking for hidden meaning For Snowflakes on the Sea example when John Lennon following the massive Shea Stadium concert in 1965 remarked that it was louder than God Niezgoda arches anyebrow curtly Why did he chose that analogy Niezgoda demands And when an xhausted Lennon tells childhood friend Pete Shotton at the height of Beatlemania that he often feels he s sold his soul the nonplussed Niezgoda can only take the most literate Beatle literallyNiezgoda is at his most bizarre though when analyzing music lyrics and album covers The intricate interwoven images on the cover of Revolver don t trouble him all that much but he s convinced that the album s name has to be a foreshadowing of the kind of gun that would be used to kill Lennon fourteen years later Certainly the name Revolver has nothing to do with the fact that vinyl records were played by placing them on a turntable that revolved at a certain speed thus making any record in a sense a revolver right Again that sort of word play is lost on NiezgodaHe s fascinated by the infamous butcher cover for the Yesterday And Today album with the Beatles in butcher smocks covered with dismembered dolls and raw meat which Niezgoda is all but certain is Lennon s nod to the most reviling sacrifice to Satan the killing of young innocent children infanticide Niezgoda uotes Lennon s nthusiasm for the project I would say I was a lot of the force behind it going out Lennon once said as the final word on the impetus behind the photo but ither doesn t seem to realize or completely ignores the fact that both Paul McCartney and photographer Robert Whitaker have claimed credit for the idea too Whitaker s version in fact holds up to the most scrutiny as the photo was actually part of a series of artsy photos Whitaker staged including one in which George Harrison appears to be driving nails into Lennon s head Lord knows how Niezgoda would have interpreted THAT photoThe real stretch however comes in his scouring of the cover of A Collection of Beatles Oldies a relatively obscure album released in the UK and Australia in late 1966 While the Paul is Dead crowd point to the drawing of the car getting ready to crash into the lounging figure s head as a death clue for Paul s alleged death by automobile Niezgoda s got something much clever in mind The figure s right crossed leg with only slight imagination can be seen as the letter J and it rests aside the word OLDIES together they spell JOLDIES or as Niezgoda xplains JOL John Ono Lennon DIES Cue the thunderclap and opening notes of Toccata and Fugue And don t try to tell Niezgoda that Lennon was 16 months away from changing his middle name from Winston to K theorizes that John Lennon's murder was erily foretold Following a fascinating and uniue trail of sorcery mysticism numerology backwards masking anagrams and literary and.

When Mark David Chapman saw this photo from the inside of Sgt Pepper he decided to kill John Lennon and left the others to keep living image rror This has to be the most ridiculous thing I ve Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival ever read The stretches made to try to prove Lennon sold his soul The misuse of words the author obviously didn t know the meaning of for instance describing Satan as maliciously benevolent The crazy interpretations of lyrics The only reason to read this book is for a good laugh at the author sxpense It was so bad that it prompted my first review on this site I read this book because I am interested in how occult forces have shaped modern history From other books I was already aware that occult forces were behind the creation of the Nazi party in Germany and were also tied to the creation of and illegal activities of the CIA in the US I was also aware that there is some Love 2.0 (A Cates Brothers Book, evidence that occult forces have had theirffect on serial killers and some very successful musiciansUnfortunately this book was not seriously researched and its author draws his conclusions from sheer speculation rather than hard The Fix evidence interesting This book started off strong and had so many interesting stories that really had me believing and kept me wanting to read and By the last few chapters where the author decodes lyrics anagramstc it became really silly stuff that he is just stretching for and tries to justify with his own opinion rather than vidence And if you re going to use dozens of the Beatles lyrics to prove that John knew his fate by hiding clues in songs where was Rocky Raccoon in this mix The chapters on Chapman were also interesting Overall it was a fun and interesting read but way toomuch stretching On one hand it s fascinating On the other hand it s bunk Or I should say it devolves into gobbledygook We go from very shocking stories about Lennon urinating on nuns idolizing Hitler and Crowley Yeesh that are carefully tied to his obsession with the occult Then towards the nd of the book there is a mad dash for and proof that leads us to pretty silly anagrams and a long section on numerology I m interested if Lennon used numerology but dude I don t hold with it myself and if you think he sold his soul ummmm you shouldn t be so into numerology itherSo while I zoomed through in the nd I feel a little abashed about having gobbled this up I did find it interesting and bonus well written I didn t know what a bunch of weirdos the Beatles were Desire in Seven Voices especially Lennon Nazi salutes And the parts about Chapman were sadly interesting too So it s not like it s a trash book just that the ookie spookie parts are really stretching Interesting but I wish he hadn t reached uite so far and desperately Also fascinating but left out of the book was an apparent reaching out by Lennon to Billy Graham trying to find redemption Ono shut it down That would have been better included than the numerology imho Really interesting read The instant hysteria and the dead Beatle clues make much sense Who was the real John Lennon and what was behind the mystery of the words and symbols that made up the art of the world s most famous rock group the Beatles Author and die hard Beatles fan Joseph Niezgoda has a few disturbing answers for you The Lennon Prophecy will open your The book certainly makes one think It is hard to say whether Lennon was a sell out but the author does an xcellent job of researching and describing the clues One of the fun and fascinating bits of Beatles lore has always been the whole Paul Is Dead hoax The story spun by that particular hoax is that Paul McCartney allegedly died in an automobile accident in 1966 a stupid bloody Tuesday and the heartbroken Beatles decided to soldier on without him replacing McCartney with a lookalike but planting clues of Paul s demise in Beatles songs and on album covers Books could be written about the hoax and in fact a few have but now comes Joseph Niezgoda in The Lennon Prophecy A New Examination of the Death Clues of The Beatles to tell us that veryone s got it wrong The clues aren t there to detail Paul s demise Niezgoda says but rather to foreshadow John Lennon s violent death in 1980 payment to the Devil for a 20 year pact Lennon made with Satan in 1960Yes reallyAccording to Niezgoda at some point in December 1960 likely between the Beatles anticlimactic return from Germany on December 10 when the group seemed on the verge of breaking up and their triumphant appearance at the Litherland Town Hall concert on December 27 the night it is generally accepted that Beatlemania was born John Lennon traded his soul to the Devil in The Casa Mono Cookbook exchange for rock and roll fame and fortune Twenty years later in December 1980 the Devil called in the debt using a demonically possessed Mark David Chapman as his instrument of deathOn that wacky premise Niezgoda devotes 186 pages to analyzing John Lennon s behavior scrutini. Offering a new interpretation of the hidden messages and symbols that have ornamented Beatles mythology for years thisxamination of the Beatles' recordings and album artwor.

No when the album was released he s already ahead of you it s a craftily constructed prophecy don t you knowSgt Pepper also falls under a similar scrutiny although unlike the Paul Is Dead gang Niezgoda isn t as much interested in the front cover as he is the back where the Beatles with the album s lyrics superimposed over them appear against a blood red background nothing is ver red in Niezgoda s book it s always BLOOD RED McCartney famously stands with his back to the camera turning his back on John and what he knew of the fatal pact Niezgoda says solemnly but the real clue lies in the layout of the lyrics from George s Within You Without You the words lose their soul are perfectly centered on John s waistline Pretty sinister huhEven sillier is Niezgoda s discussion of the drumhead on the cover of Pepper an image already overanalyzed by the Paul Is Dead aficionados Niezgoda relies on the same parlor trick as the Paul Is Dead gang using a mirror to bisect the words LONELY HEARTS which he points out sinisterly are in a different font from the rest of the drum to reveal a messy I ONE IX HE DIE For the Paul Is Dead people this convoluted hidden message means that Paul died on November 9th with I ONE meaning leven and IX meaning 9 for 119 Not for Niezgoda Instead he reads this as a taunt from Satan to John Lennon I won Nine he die Nine Niezgoda xplains is the day Lennon died because it was already December 9th in Liverpool you see when John died in New York on December 8thThat kind of convoluted numerology in fact is where Niezgoda becomes wearying Lennon himself made much of the number 9 in his life he was born on the ninth and included the number in the title of several songs but Niezgoda comes up with some truly inane readings and sleights of hand to arrive at his nines For xample he points out that if you dial the name JOHNONOLENNON on a push button phone you get 564666536666 and wow look at all those sixes which are really just nines standing on their heads And only Niezgoda could read One After 909 as an omen it s waaay too confusing to xplain how it predicts Lennon s death down to the day all the way down to a reference to Yoko as a his bag The punch my ticket moment though the moment I knew Niezgoda was in way over his head arrives on page 122 as Niezgoda does some headscratching over the band s name The Beatles was a curious choice of name for a band specially because it s spelled wrong In 1961 John wistfully Lachlan's Protg (English Edition) explained to Mersey Beat where he got the idea It came in a vision a man appeared on a flaming pie and said unto them From this day on you are Beatles with an A With an absolutely straight face Niezgodaxplains that Lennon had to spell beetles incorrectly so he could use the letters to make an anagram of seal bet hiding in plain sight his pact with the Devil As for the man on a flaming pie Niezgoda points out his gears churning that man on a flaming pie scrambles as pagan flame minion Apparently the pun on beat in the word Beatles seems to never have occurred to the humorless Niezgoda he s too busy making scary sounds and tut tut noises As for the pagan flame minion you can also anagram man on a flaming pie to make film an ape moaning but that hardly means Lennon had hidden aspirations of being a voyeuristic zookeeper I can t tell if Niezgoda is being intentionally ridiculous here or if he s really that cluelessNiezgoda s last chapter contains two incredibly odd bits of contrived thinking and backwards logic The first is a way out reading of James Joyce s Finnegans Wake a book published a year before Lennon s birth but which Niezgoda is nonetheless convinced contains prophecies of Lennon s life and death And that s mostly because at certain points over its 600 pages Joyce uses words like beetle pepper and funeral The second is a wacky bit of mathematics in which Niezgoda chooses three songs he believes place the final moments of John Lennon s life to music I Am The Walrus Revolution 9 and 9 Dream Niezgoda informs us that the total lapsed time from the moment Lennon was shot to the moment he died was 17 minutes and I think we re supposed to get chills when he informs us that the total time playing time for those three songs is 17 minutes 42 seconds Niezgoda provides us with absolutely no reason why there should or should not be a correlation between the playing time of these songs and Lennon s last moments It s a completely nonsensical premise and farcical train of thought and we re supposed to somehow be spooked by itBut that sort of spurious thinking is the norm for Niezgoda His premise is a bizarre one to begin with but The Lennon Prophecy is full of so many thin lame and ye rollingly ridiculous theories that it s impossible to take seriously Yet Niezgoda does And no one he writes in his wistful introduction is sorrier than I about what is written here Except maybe those of us who ve read Theological writings the book posits that John Lennon sold his soul in order to achieve international fame and fortune and subseuently paid the ultimate price for his success.
