The Beatles Through The Years has been one of the leading internet entertainment sites related to the Beatles since its incarnation in 2011, for one simple reason: we focus on the fans. While we do provide the history of The Band, talk about the latest Beatles-related news in our blogs and on the Tea and a Butty Podcast, discuss their albums and movies, and swoon over pictures of the lads, we also highlight the individuals that make up this particular fandom, because Beatles fans are what keeps the legend of the Beatles alive.

The Paul.....Hotel?


Meet Paul....but have we already met him?


Now, I'm a little bemused by this hotel's theme. It's not a Beatles theme or a Paul McCartney theme but....it is. I mean, this could easily be misconstrued by every Beatles fan. Especially when you have a quote like THAT on the wall that every fan knows.

Could this be a hotel that Macca himself has a stake in? or has secretly opened because he has a burning desire to go into the hotel business but doesn't want to be TOO obvious?

I'm having visions of Macca managing this hotel in a Basil Fawlty style, being stressed out to the max while Nancy sits at reception on the phone all day. Instead of "Don't Mention the War!" it might be "Don't Mention the Frog Chorus!" or imagining Paul taking his stresses out on his poor Mini like Basil does in this clip:



But, hilarious as it might be to imagine Paul dealing with dead guests, hotel inspectors and conked out cars, I think the Beatles references on The Paul's website are a little hard to ignore, like this one....

Now, the Apple is synonymous with New York City (The Big Apple) and since the hotel is in NYC its easy to see how and why this sketch is in the hotel. But of course there's also that other Apple, and I don't mean the fruit, or the company whose product you may be reading this blog on now, I mean the Apple Corps that was formed by the Beatles themselves in the late 60s to secure their interests and also put out their records.

For all you people who likes to look for clues on Beatles' conspiracy theories, the biggest one being the 'Paul Is Dead' myth, then here's another clue for you all....


......The Walrus is apparently staying at The Paul.

Or it may not be. It may have checked out by now.
