The Beatles 13: The Multiverse Album

Robert Deutsch

A Rock and Roll “What If” for our time The 2019 Danny Boyle movie “Yesterday” subversively proposes that the Beatles musical oeuvre did not and does not necessarily have to emanate from John, Paul, George and Ringo to exist. Does it also suggest a corollary? That the music of John, Paul, George and Ringo— a universal asset — might continue to be created even if they aren’t the ones bringing it to the public. If yes, then our question then, is where are the songs? Which artists are the vessels?To answer that, and to hear those songs, we must enter the multiverse: a place that looks, feels and is identical to ours with sometimes very small but very significant differences. In this universe John Lennon is alive, having survived the assassination attempt on December 8th, 1980. And these are the songs (and story) of The Beatles 1990 reunion album called simply “Beatles 13.”
