Default The Role of Terry Knight and the Paul is dead Hoax

Recently someone sent me an email about a documentary that was made about the Paul is dead hoax. As I was reading in Shout! by Philip Norman I am wandering about some pieces of history.

On page 400 of Normanīs book Shout! he mentions that after this hoax started, (back in October 1969) a lot of songs and magazines were released.

"...In America, an industry grew up of 'paul is dead' magazines, TV inquests and death discs - 'Saint Paul', 'Dear Paul', 'the ballad of Paul' and Paulbearer'. It was all something stranger than a hoax.......''

But this first song: 'Saint Paul' by Terry Knight was according to the Dutch documentary released more then 5 months before this Hoax started. But more important is that once it was released The Beatles publishing label took over the copyrights of that song. Why is that? Nobody knew about the hoax back in may 1969 anyway. Why would Apple/Maclen have a deal with an unknown singer?

And all the Beatles books refer to this song like it was released in order the make some money out of the hoax, like in Norman Philip: Shout!

Off course it doesn't prove anything like Paul is really dead, but maybe it explains something about the creation of the mythology.

Please let me know what you think about this weird coincidence. And by the way who is right, the Dutch or Philip Norman, about this release date?

Thanks Sourmilkpinky.

I noticed this documentary is on the internet right now. It's called:
Who buried Paul McCartney? and directed by Wouter van Opdorp
maybe anyone knows more about that.
www.whoburiedpaulmccartney.com
So for those who are interested, you can watch it online.

You can also watch it from this site.

The film was a project between dutch broadcast organisation NPS and Wouter van Opdorp from the dutch film and Television academy.
