    S.O.S.

    TO THE EDITOR


    Dear Editor:

    My name is JOSEPH FERRANTE. I am a musician.
    I am writing to inform you of a long history of efforts to block my
    musical career and take my ideas. It has now gone beyond the pale.

    Some time ago, while I was living in England, I was sent out to tune
    the ex-Beatle GEORGE HARRISON's piano several times. After five years
    in England I eventually went back to where I'd originally come from.
    There I made my own adaptation of the Beatles' "Hey Jude". I took the
    original song and re-worked it into a latin "Bachata", mixed with
    flamenco. I made a demonstration cassette of it and sent it to George
    Harrison. It came back to me stamped with a rude "by bike" in the
    place of the usual "Air mail" on the envelope. I phoned him to ask for
    an explanation but was told by his secretary that he did not want to
    come to the phone.

    Mr. Raul Cairo of the Dutch "Music and Media" magazine can testify to
    the quality of my arrangement of "Hey Jude", as he wrote an article
    about it in the same magazine.

    I tried sending demonstration cassettes of my version of "Hey Jude" to
    three record companies in Spain, and, some months later, a group
    called "Los Roling" came out with a flamenco rendition of Beatles
    music. Significantly, it was at the same time that Raul Cairo was
    writing up my "Hey Jude" in "Music and Media".

    After a Finnish promotional firm requested 28 CDs of the song for
    broadcasting on their radio chain throughout Europe the song began to
    get airplay. I was told by the firm that they were getting phone-in
    requests for the song at the stations and that it was being given a
    nice reception by radio listeners. Some ten days later the song
    disappeared off the air as though an invisible hand had stopped it.
    The Finnish promotional firm did not care to provide any explanation
    when I phoned up about it.

    Time went by and I made a "salsa" version of the Beatles' song "Sgt.
    Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". This time I sent demonstration
    cassettes to record companies outside Europe, including in New York.
    Some months later, a well-known latin entertainer got a salsa band
    together with performers from "Fania All Stars" among others, and
    released an L.P. of salsa-style Beatles music in New York.

    Time went by again, and it occurred to me that perhaps I could help
    get the Beatles back together again as a Beatles' music specialist
    myself and a professional musician in my own right. I faxed a proposal
    to that effect to George Harrison, one which he never answered. I did
    fax him several times again afterwards trying to set out my ideas
    about the Beatles revival venture, only to discover at one point that
    he had had his fax number changed. The international operator told me
    she couldn't give me the new number, as it was unlisted. About six
    months after the fax incident the first "Beatles Anthology" CD came
    out, after many, many years without a Beatles release. My idea. He
    took it and went ahead without me.

    Now I am back in England.

    I came back with 14 songs that I'd put together under the title
    "Shangri-La", hoping to get a record deal for it. Both "Hey Jude" and
    "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" were included in my
    production. There were also two other well-known songs in my own
    adapted version. The rest, the other ten songs, were all my own
    original compositions.
    Even though I am a Rock musician,"Shangri-La" is a multi-styled
    production.

    I took demonstration cassettes of "Shangri-La" to the ten major record
    companies in London. All ten were somehow mysteriously "mislaid".
    Representatives of the A&R departments concerned refused even to come
    to the phone to give me an explanation, delegating other people to
    take the call instead and tell me that they were still having trouble
    locating the cassette. All ten cassettes??...Isn't that a bit much to
    be a coincidence??...

    One of the other two items I'd re-worked for "Shangri-La" was "If I
    Had A Hammer". The rhythm and arrangements were all distinctly
    different in my version from the original song. One day, after having
    delivered my cassettes to the main record companies, I switched on the
    television, only to see the launch of a new programme featuring Trini
    Lopez's original "If I Had A Hammer" as the theme song...That was
    after my version of the long-forgotten song had been heard by the
    record companies.

    Again, after my cassettes had gone out to the record companies, a big
    night club that was owned by people who had links with the record
    industry started running a show they called "Shangri-La". They stole
    the name from my production. I ended up having to hire solicitors to
    get them to stop using the name, as I had already had it registered
    for musical purposes.

    During that same period I received dozens of nuisance calls on my
    mobile phone from people mocking me with taunts like: "Don't you have
    a record deal ?", or "Go find another country", or "I'm not hearing
    your songs on the radio"...

    Realizing that there must be a conspiracy against me I had promotional
    CDs pressed of "Hey Jude" and distributed them to 84 radio stations
    around England. After a couple weeks I had letters back from radio
    stations saying they couldn't play "Hey Jude" on their programmes,
    although some of the selfsame directors went on to praise my
    arrangement of the song. Capital Radio described it as "a very
    interesting arrangement". The BBC World Service went on to call it "a
    very original and quite virtuoso arrangement". From Sony Music I read:
    "..I was really impressed with the quality of the performance and your
    new arrangement". If the song was good enough to generate such
    comments, why wouldn't they play it ? ? ?

    After the radio set-back I sent a CD of my adapted version of "Hey
    Jude" to Paul McCartney at his office, asking if he could give me a
    hand by contacting some of the radio station directors. A week later I
    followed up by phoning his office, only to be met with one of the
    secretaries, who in a rude and aggressive manner dismissed me with,:
    "We've put your CD of "Hey Jude" in a cold cellar...". Why such a
    violent reaction ? ?...

    So I wrote to Paul McCartney. I even made 16 copies of my letters and
    mailed them separately to be sure that one of them at least got
    through to him at his home. Yet I never had a reply.
    Interestingly enough, just at that time I started to hear massive
    outpourings of the Beatles' "Hey Jude" on the radio,and Paul McCartney
    himself suddenly began performing live again at the "Cavern" in
    Liverpool after years of inactivity.

    It was during those same months that I was getting threatening,
    anonymous phone calls on my mobile, warning me against giving live
    performances or playing anywhere. The calls were always made from
    public telephones.
    One music agent whom I'd contacted in an effort to find myself a
    manager, apologized, saying: "I'm sorry, but I cannot use you...". He
    refused to say why and hung up on me.
    That was when I realized what a huge operation I was up against. So
    huge, in fact, that in the three and a half years I have been in
    England this second stay I have as yet to give my first live concert
    or perform anywhere, despite having contacted more than 20 music
    agents.

    Five months after my "Hey Jude" was blocked on British radio stations
    the latest Beatles' CD came out. This was the second time that my
    adaptation of "Hey Jude" had caused a Beatles' Anthology to appear..It
    seems some people regard my "Hey Jude" as a threat...

    And as another "coincidence", the e-mail address that Paul McCartney
    offered for fans to write to him is called [email protected]
    I said before, after my Hey Jude got blocked on british radio, Paul
    McCartney rushed in with concerts at the "Cavern" in Liverpool and
    launched this second Beatles Anthology CD. Nevertheless, when he saw
    that the concerts only gathered a very small audience and that the CD
    did not sell as expected, now he pushed for a CD to come out of his
    work with his group "Wings"...all this with no let-up, one thing after
    another, like he was trying to gain time for something, wanting to be
    constantly present in people's minds for some reason....It is with
    sadness that I realize that possibly some people could be very afraid
    of my Hey Jude....

    Most recently, one of my piano tuning customers, who is involved with
    the British music industry, said an aggressive letter had been forged
    in my name and sent out to different branches of the above mentioned
    music industry and to other parts of the music world. This was further
    confirmed by a DJ friend of mine in British radio...What vile extremes
    will some people not resort to in their attempt to alienate others
    from me???...

    Also, as another "coincidence", one of the ten major record companies
    in London that stole my "Shangri-la" cassettes, has just launched a CD
    of one of their bands, being the band's CD title exactly the same as
    my own, with the addition of a couple of words to make the title a
    comical phrase !!! ..... They've launched it through one of their
    branches in another part of the world.....I suspect this is a subtle
    trap by this record firm expecting me to react to their action to
    implicate me with that part of the world.....I will not fall into that
    trap.....Now they are trying to block me in other parts of the world
    as well.....it looks like some people consider my work something very
    dangerous, judging by the amount of conspiracy they are
    generating......once again, it is amazing to see the vile manoeuvres
    of some people......

    What I have said so far is just the tip of the iceberg. Depending on
    how things go, the full iceberg may yet come to light in all its
    magnitude. I don't want to blame anybody but I feel my story has to be
    told.
    I come looking to all music lovers to help me fight this horrible
    multi-tentacled monster that has kept me and my work out of the public
    eye and stolen my ideas.

    It is because of this conspiracy against me that I have had to find
    shelter on the Internet.
    My and my work can only be found at my website. Look on search engines
    for the name of Joseph Ferrante's website.
    I invite you all to it.

    Yours sincerely:

    Joseph Ferrante.

    IN BRIEF
    ========



    Joseph Ferrante, the music genius that The Beatles and their record
    firm blocked during 13 long years, in a gigantic plot which involved
    different sectors of the music industry...



    --------------------------------3rd. part----------------------------



    ADDENDUM
    ========



    The adaptation of Hey Jude by Joseph Ferrante has been granted a
    PUBLISHING AGREEMENT by the copyright owners. Due to this fact, the
    people involved, not being able to stop it legally, use all kind of
    vile and subreptitious and illegal manoeuvres to do it......
    The only reason for this (and we must humbly say it because enough is
    enough) is that the adaptation of Hey Jude by Ferrante makes the
    original song look like an absolute nothing....They try to hide the
    sun with a finger......

    It is possible to hide things from all the people part of the time and
    it is possible to hide things from part of the people all the time,
    but it's impossible to hide things from all of the people all of the
    time.. ..and what was done in the night, shows in daylight......

    What does Ferrante mean by "rude", Lewis? Does he have something against
    bikes??

    So, you're calling me an idiot? If I had bottom posted, so you knew
    what I thought was delusional, then you would of had to go to the
    bottom of the message, just to read my one sentence. Sure I could of
    cut part of it, but by leaving the whole message, it really shows how
    delusional he is.

    Actually though, it was a quick reply to a useless, misplaced post,
    that I thoght would get no replies.

    It took reading your other post, to be sure who you were calling an
    idiot. I would guess, taken on its own, your post is as poorly done as
    mine was. I don't think that makes you an idiot, just unthinking and
    inconsiderate. I have been known to throw out an insult or two, but I
    don't do it with out being provoked or unless I have taken offense to
    a mean spirited, thoughtless post.

    Your premise is faulty, that is, that the entire contents of the
    previous message would need to have been posted.

    Jeff, I never mentioned your top-post in my reply to you. What was
    /idiotic/ was leaving the entire 17KB lunatic rant intact, when you easily
    could have deleted all but a smattering of it to get your point across.
    Sorry if you took offense at my pointing this out; I was trying to emulate
    your posting style. (I suppose I could have said "Can you say waste of
    bandwidth?" to have been a bit gentler.)

    my sentiment would have been the same" S.

    Is he related to the 'old dear' who complained of her dear old grandmom's

    I miss those old "bag-o-shite" newsgroup posts!

    When replying to an on topic post, I always trim, I choose to leave
    the whole message.
    I'm not going to get into a pissing contest, over something so minor.
    What I don't understand is how the length of that message, caused you
    any difficulty. On my PC it comes right up and is easily deleted.

    I'm sorry I created such problems, it wasn't my intention. If you are
    concerned about my posting style, I suggest you reread all of my posts
    and then determine if I need to refine my posting style.

    Say hi to Louise for me;-)

    Jeff, if one person says you've got a tail, you can just laugh it off and
    assume they're strange.

    If a second person comments on your tail, you can just think there's
    something in the water today.

    If a third person tells you "nice tail", it's time to turn around and look!

    Bill "a little tail tale for ya" S.
