Bring Me The Head of Paul McCartney

In 2008 as I started building the Knuckster motor Sir Paul McCartney’s head went missing. It was a Sir Paul wax doll’s head – and it was left on a train when being transported to be auctioned … The head was made in the 1960’s and had been on display at the Louis Tussauds Museum in Great Yarmouth. In this photo the heads of my Knuckster motor is missing because I wanted to take a photo of how the piston domes are milled out for the valves and also the cutouts for the exhausts.
The best thing about the Knuckster's heads are that since they're both rotated clockwise – so are the outtakes for the valves and exhausts.

The best thing about Sir Paul McCartney’s head is that it had a £2000.00 reward and that a homeless person named Anthony Silva found it in a trash can at a railway station and collected the reward. So what are the worlds telling us? Does this mean we should go searching for Knuckleheads in railway station trash cans? Is there even a connection here, I bet there is.

Who Killed Brian Jones?

Was it one of The Rolling Stones?

Nah, I don’t think so...

Ok, so who did it? Well, if it wasn’t Anita Pallenberg, and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t, then it must have been that construction worker Frank Thorogood, right? But I’m pretty sure Frank didn’t kill Brian by his own will, not a chance. Frank’s mind was controlled by the CIA Mind Control Unit; by the same ones that 11 years later killed John Lennon through controlling the mind of Mark Chapman. Annunaki's always intense.

God Save Mrs Mopp & Good Old Mother Riley

The Kinks are the greatest band ever; I’ve always loved everything about them. They never really fit the psychedelic scene in the 1960’s and they never really fit the clean shaved pop scene either.

The Kinks never fit any scene – they created their own; a dark, sarcastic and subtle protest against all pop culture. And they went from doing genius concept albums in the 1960’s to full-blown rock operas in the 1970’s.

This is Matte’s Generator Shovel, and I think this bike is just like The Kinks in more than a few ways, not only as a subtle protest. I shot it for DicE sometime this summer, and since then Matte did some upgrades, so I have to go shoot it again before it gets in the mag. So until then – how soon is when?
