Quote# 62369John Lennon made pact with Satan, says new book
Author contends 'Paul is dead' clues were about McCartney's band mate
The Beatles meteoric rise, unprecedented in popular culture and unrivaled nearly four decades after the band broke up, is at least partly explained, says a new book, by a pact John Lennon made with the Devil.
In "The Lennon Prophecy," author Joseph Niezgoda reveals that Lennon himself, obsessed with the occult, magic, numerology and being bigger than Elvis Presley, confided in his friend Tony Sheridan that he made such a deal. The book also makes the case that the "death clues" long associated with Paul McCartney were actually subliminal messages hinting at Lennon's fate.
Written by a lifelong Beatles fan and musician, the book hypothesizes the pact was made just before the band experienced its first major successes and ended 20 years later with Lennon's assassination in New York by Mark David Chapman, who later claimed to have demons exorcized from him while serving his sentence for murder in Attica State Prison.
"Chapman said that as the last demon left his body he was given the reason for his possession," Niezgoda told WND. "It was to make a show of Satan's great power in the world using John Lennon's murder as the vehicle. I've always held an intuitive belief … that the true author of this story is Satan and that I am only the messenger."
