Ringo's Invisible Sonic Force Field

September 13, 2016

On this day in 1967

The Beatles formed an electronics company called Fiftyshapes, Ltd

appointing John Alexis Mardas 'Magic Alex' to be the company's director

Alex claimed he could build a 72-track tape machine

instead of the 4-track at Abbey Road

However...Mardas' idea never materialized

One of Magic Alex's more outrageous plans

was to replace the acoustic baffles around Ringo Starr's drums

with an invisible sonic force field

George Harrison later said

that employing Mardas was "the biggest disaster of all time"
