The Beatles Never Broke Up is a website created by a man going under the name of “James Richards”. In the site, Richards tells the story about how he came across a cassette tape that contained new Beatles material that was made after their breakup in 1970.
“James Richards” (a pseudonym the webmaster created to protect his identity) claims that on September 9, 2009, he came into the possession of a cassette tape of a Beatles album that was never released. “In fact, not only was it never released,” Richards says on his site, “but it was recorded many years after they broke up (and no I'm not talking about Klaatu).”
Richards says that he was in Del Puerto Canyon chasing his dog when he tripped and fell unconscious. When he woke up, he found that he and his dog had been transported to a parallel Earth by a man named Jonas. Jonas, from an Earth where traveling to parallel universes is commonplace, noticed Richards was unconscious and since there was no one or no place available to help him, Jonas took Richards and his dog with him to his Earth.
Richards goes on to say that he and Jonas talked about many similarities and differences between our worlds. The subject of The Beatles came up when Jonas mentioned his brother had attended a recent concert of theirs, all four original members still alive and together on his Earth. When Richards explained that only two members were alive in our universe, Jonas showed him a room where he stored his Beatles collection.
Richards says that of the cassette tapes Jonas had, there were four whose titles he could not recognize. When he asked Jonas if he could have a copy of one of the tapes, Richards was told, for his own safety, that he could not take any kind of souvenirs back from that dimension. Richards managed to pocket one of the tapes while Jonas was distracted and was later transported back to our Earth with his dog and his stolen souvenir as proof of his story.
Everyday Chemistry
The album Richards obtained, Everyday Chemistry, was transferred to mp3 and is available for download on his website. In reality, it is a mashup of all four Beatles solo material over the years. For example: the first track, “Four Guys”, contains elements of George Harrison’s “When We Was Fab”, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “I'm Moving On”, and Paul McCartney & Wings’ “Band on the Run”.
