At over eight minutes, it is the longest track that the Beatles officially released,

while others start "Revolution 9" with the conversation, for a track length of 8:22.
9 is the number of eternity!

Maybe Rik Clay had feet of clay?

The expression "feet of clay" can be traced back to the biblical Book of Daniel. King Nebuchadnezzar experienced a terrifying dream in which he saw a massive statue constructed from various precious metals. The feet of this statue were composed of a mixture of iron and clay, making it especially vulnerable to an attack. Indeed, an massive stone did strike the statue at its clay feet, reducing the entire effigy to dust. The prophet Daniel interpreted Nebuchadnezzar's dream as a warning that the King's kingdom was in danger of disintegration at the hands of unseen enemies.
