I posted this on the QOL forum so forgive me if this is old news to dual board visitors.


It's much easier to see on the LP version of Live Killers but what on earth happened to Brian on the front image? Looks like he was added in later as you can see his right hand is so badly cut out....his right knee is also emiting light and...the red special....there's four tuning pegs on one side denoting that it's an 8 string guitar! I really can't believe that this was passable...even for 1979. Even around Brian's whole body you can tell it's been cutout.

I don't think the top one is a tuner. It looks like some kind of weird spot. It might be a tuner on the other side, but you shouldn't be able to see it. It doesn't even look attatched to the guitar.

So it's edited, who cares? Nice note, but not really worth debating. It's just one of those things.

Peace,
Adam.

Fuck off. If you don't think it's interesting, then don't ruin it by posting.

This is an excellent find, Millbrookmusic... one of the most interesting topics this year! I've looked at the Live Killers cover closely so many times, and never noticed anything of the sort. Good show!

Well I'll be made of germs. I've never looked that close! Maybe that really does mean Paul is Dead! Wait..wrong band..

Good find that.

There was no need for that. We all have differing opinions, so get used to finding that we don't all think alike.

Peace,
Adam.

Thanks for the kind words, Sir!
I posted this on the QOL forum and it was over run by more important threads like "Where is John Deacon", "What's your favorite album" and "was Freddie Gay" :)

Where did I imply that I didn't already understand that?

It has become a general rule not to post in a topic to say "this topic sucks". It's hardly worthwhile to post a message that doesn't add to the conversation at all. Your first post in this topic was precisely that.
