Ringo Says Paul Died in 1966

Gun Enthusiasts – Let Your Voices Be Heard



BDTN Editor Ste Murray at 19:28
The former drummer of the Beatles, Ringo Starr, surprised the world this morning during an interview in his luxurious Californian residence, when he admitted that the 45-year old rumors about the alleged death of Paul McCartney in 1966 were actually true.
In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Inquirer, Mr. Starr explained that the “real” Paul McCartney had died in a car crash on November 9 1966, after an argument during a Beatles’ recording session. To spare the public from grief, the Beatles replaced him with a man named William Shears Campbell, who was the winner of a McCartney look-alike contest and who happened to have the same kind of jovial personality as Paul.
“When Paul died, we all panicked!” claims Ringo, obviously very emotional. “We didn’t know what to do, and Brian Epstein, our manager, suggested that we hire Billy Shears as a temporary solution. It was supposed to last only a week or two, but time went by and nobody seemed to notice, so we kept playing along. Billy turned out to be a pretty good musician and he was able to perform almost better than Paul. The only problem was that he couldn’t get along with John, at all.”
William Shears Campbell, better known as Billy Shears, does indeed “disappear ” from records in 1966 and traces of him can be found after Paul’s alleged death.

Mr. Starr alleges that the group did send out a lot of hidden messages through the years to prepare the population for the truth.
 He notably says that the entire Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album was awash with Paul-is-dead clues: the Beatles had indeed officially formed a “new” band featuring a “fictional” member named Billy Shears, which happened to be the actual name of Paul’s replacement.
“We felt guilty about the deception” added Ringo Starr. “We wanted to tell the world the truth, be we were afraid of the reactions it would provoke. We thought the whole planet was going to hate us for all the lies we had told, so we kept lying but sending subtle clues to relieve our cousciousness. When the first rumors finally began about the whole thing, we felt very nervous and started fighting a lot with each other. At some point, it was too much for John and he decided to leave the band.”
Ringo Starr claims that he finally decided to tell the truth, because he was afraid that it was going to die with him. At age 74, he is the only other surviving member of the famous band besides Paul McCartney, and he was afraid the deception would never be revealed.

The rumors of Paul’s death began more than 45 years ago, but had always been dismissed as nonsense by the band and its entourage. In September 1969, American college students published a series of articles in which they claimed that clues to McCartney’s death could be found among the lyrics and artwork of the Beatles’ recordings. Clue-hunting rapidly proved infectious, and within a few weeks, it had become an international phenomenon. Rumours only declined after a contemporary interview with McCartney was published in Life magazine in November 1969.
Neither Paul McCartney nor anyone from his entourage have commented Ringo Starr’s declaration yet, but the interview has already provoked a lot of reactions around the world. Journalists and paparazzis from around the world have surrounded the residence of the musician only minutes after the interview was broadcasted and are awaiting for the star to comment the allegations.
The British MI5 also announced an investigation to determine if an impostor could have indeed posed for 48 years as the Member of the Order of the British Empire, Sir James Paul McCartney, during official ceremonies involving Queen Elizabeth II.

        Did Ringo Starr Admit Paul McCartney Died In 1966, Replaced With Look-Alike?

        • Equalizer

          Conspiracy theories are like toilet paper…they always get the dirty job & always show the “truth”.

          • raburgeson

            Conspiracy fact records are a bit slow as we have to wait for death bed confessions if we get any confession at all. So the band hired a new member, it was a good band. The thing is it was a real conspiracy.

        • HaloMan

          WOW! I guess you Americans still like the Beatles.
          260500+ views in about three weeks says it all.

      • Maurice Ronald The Keyboard Warrior

        It’s silly that this is the top story. There are all sorts of terrible things going on in the world that should be exposed, yet people seem to give more of a crap about if one of the Beatles was replaced.

        • KingOfTheCamp

          Actually if true it confirms another conspiracy theory 50 years after the fact of being TRUE. This makes this a VERY relevant story.

        • Elixx

          Hey man… of the greatest true is that; everybody choose what they want to believe. So if you want to believe all those “terrible things going on in the world” as 100% true that’s your decision. I saw a lot of stories in this page that with time prove to be lies. So most of the time I visit this page is for pure entertainment. Remember that every human been is unique and different from another, and what seen’s important to you may not be for others….. peace…!!

        • Maurice Ronald The Keyboard Warrior

          Yes, Elixx. Most of the stories on here are balogna.

        Go Home Paul your Mama’s wait in, ( Get Back ) Joe

        • GOLOC

          30 yrs ago a friend of mine met aka, Paul McCartney at a home of friends of his in Dallas, Tx,
          his friends name and Home, The Campbell ‘s, WOW, when this story came out I thought about that day He told me about meeting Paul, WOW

    • airportengineer

      Now when will Priscilla admit Elvis did not die either!?! He is living as his twin brother Jessie, and there are photos to prove it

      • Redlist Renegade

        Except Elvis IS dead !!! I knew one of his band members that was there at Graceland the night that he died .

    • HereAmI

      The lugubrious and maudlin output from Paul’s replacement has been a stain on the good name of the band for years.
      Heather Mills’ interviews basically tell everyone what was obvious already; this wretched man is a congenital liar, and should be exposed for the charlatan he so obviously is.

      • The Seer

        So you telling me they had to find someone that looked like him and then had to write songs like him, then bribe all his family bribe all the band members and there families too then all his school friends and all the stars that they ever meet like Cilla Black, I think your more Nutter than a fruit cake

        • yes2truth

          @ The Seer

          Follow the money and the love life – Paul was dating Jane Asher and then she is suddenly dumped, all at that time.

        • PeaBrain

          Okay you conspiracy theorists, McCartneys latest song with Rihanna and Kanye West titled 4 5 Seconds from Wildin’… sort of ties in with Jane Asher, whose birthdate is April 5th, 1946 (4 is the month-5 is the day)=> Born in “Willesden”, England.

        • airportengineer

          They didn’t exactly look the same, and many people (I think even Geraldo had a show about it) suspected that they switched Paul for several yrs (decades) later. It was more than obvious.

        • elijah

          The wings songs weren’t at all real beatle material

        • The Seer

          The ‘interview’ has been widely shared on social media, and many unfortunate conspiracy theorists – some of whom are involved in this website detailing ‘proof’ that Paul McCartney is actually dead – have been taken in by the ruse

    • yeahright

      of course the poster can’t provide a link to this supposed interview and a quick search turns up no such link.


      • Mikeol1987

        That and Ringo Starr is currently on tour in South America, so how he did an interview in hollywood is a bloody mystery!

        • yeahright

          just more BIN BS

        • purple_tiger

          You think only Paul has doubles?

    • kal98

      The pic of the guy on left certainly has a broader face than the guy on right and other different features. So what are we all suppose to do cry in our tea? Who frigging cares they made zillions were all great business men and had fab lives and are immortal. The fans are the ones that live the songs like idiots instead of recognizing it is all just a dog and pony show, none of these entertainers live their music that influence and change your brainwave patterns. Oh my gosh….I bought royalty stream income so set for life!

    • yes2truth

      Oh Oh it’s on The Tap Blog, better wait until it’s confirmed from a more reliable source. Tap is code for dissos r us. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

      • Maurice Ronald The Keyboard Warrior

        Mine too.

    • Mick

      It’s disingenuous to say that photo on the right is from 1966. That was Paul in ’69-70. If you’ve got to lie to put your point across your point is worthless. It’s an interesting yarn but it’s bollux.

      • LifeIs

        Mick you’re not getting it. Any picture of Paul is from 1966 and earlier. The guy on the right has a longer face, lower cheekbones, and — in other pictures– completely different ears. And is taller.

        kal98 it might be nice if you looked at the big picture. “Popular culture” is manufactured.

        Mikeol1987 yes the fact that the interview is fake is the ONLY problem. The fact that Paul was replaced is true.

        The Seer it’s not done with bribery but with threat of violence. And with violence. And with a well-oiled propaganda machine you think of as “the media.”

    • Before It Was All Pop Ups

      The Beatles were just a ripoff of Nickleback anyway.

      • Central Scrutinizer

        Mind ….. Completely …. BLOWN !!!!!!!!

      The band wings with paul mc cartney sang many a secret in songs like jet, uncle albert, venus and mars rock show and a day in the life from the beatles.

      When paul supposedly was so easily called away in 1966 his friend Denny Laine which sounds much like the beatles song Penny Lane, sang a song called go now with the group moody blues.

      We’ve already said, good by

      said you have to go, oh you better go now.

      I think moody blues lead singer Denny Laine sang this song in tribute to his friend Paul Mc cartney.


      Denny Laine was with the paul mc cartney band, wings. Denny often sang that song, go now with wings.

    • No time

      I do not think this is the real Ringo, it is probably a look alike, some one who thinks they are Ringo.

      • skreamer

        That probably more close to the truth!

    • living and loving

      In 1966-67 this was big news.
      One on of the Beatles albums, I think it was Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts club band, The name “Billy Shears” is introduced and at the end of one song, John Lennon is clearly heard saying “I buried Paul” and this comes at the end of one of the songs and you would miss it if you did not accidently pick it up. people were recording on reel to reels Beatle music. Some said it was stunt to regain popularity after Lennon said The Beatles were more popular than Jesus. On another Beatle Ablum there were supposely another message hidden in the song or at the very end. Haven’t listen to them in 25 or more years.

      Whether you think its true or not …….Not going to lose any sleep over it but it seems that Ringo is clearing his conscious. Perhaps he feels that his life is short. Setting things right……perhaps :neutral:

    • Astral Silence

      There’s also a conspiracy that there has been different Ringo’s as well over the years, Google it up. Some weird (albeit funny) evidence.

    • The Ferrett

      Ringo “Starr” is Jewish . .

      I think this is great place to sell my tapioca mine. Anybody interested in buying my tapioca mine?

      An android is a robot that looks and acts like a human. Sherry Shriner wrote that they have skin and organs that are made from cloned human tissue and are controlled by computers, replacing the once original human.

    • skreamer

      If Ringo is saying this its because….
      1. They want more money!
      2. Is senile and wants some attention cause he cant get it anymore!
      3. Think it might generate more album sales….again!
      4. Wants to take the attention away from “Justin Bieber is actually a girl” news!
      5. Is saying this cause if he doesn’t, Paul will kill him! “Paul is running low on cocaine and needs another 10 houses”
      Ringo knows Paul will make good on his threat and doesn’t want to end up like Lennon!

      6. Ringo suffers from a rare disease called Bullmaximus Crapus Mouthus!
      7. Ringo hates Paul, and knows this well piss off Paul unbelievably!
      8. Then why didn’t they replace John Lennon?, the could clone him 4x and he could be his own band!
      9. Ringo is stupid and doesn’t know what he is saying cause Paul has beaten his head to many times!

      • just me

        Bullmaximus Crapus Mouthus!!! Bwahahahahaha!!! Gotta remember that! :lol:

    • PeaBrain

      If you recall Pete Best was the original drummer for the Beatles and Ringo was his replacement. If either Paul or Ringo puts out a life story, they better do it soon, because it will be written according to their viewpoint and their perspective, which sadly George and John can no longer justly defend and/or dispute.

    • Mikeol1987

      There’s just one problem with this, and it’s not the fact I don’t believe it or want to discredit it, but I’m afraid I’m going to have to.

      Ringo is currently on tour in South America, and has been for around a week, so this interview allegedly involves a teleporting Ringo Starr too.

    • vic_ious

      John McGowen in his book, “Weird Scenes inside the Canyon” on the Lauryl Canyon music scene showed that most of the stars: Jim Morrison, David Crosby, Frank Zappa, Momma Cass, etc were all sons and daughters of U.S. intelligence officers, admirals and American oligarch families.

      The sixties were one big Psyop after they committed a coup in 1963, Nov 22.

    • somejackball

      lolz, i think you missed April 1st by like a month! :mrgreen:

    • Mother mary

      Isn’t this the band that TAVISTOCK created? All mind control crap. Is it real, I it fake?

      • LifeIs

        Mother mary exactly.

        I mean yes, this interview is fake. And yes, they did replace Paul — there’s a world of evidence of that, photographic mostly but also voice analysis.

        For the 70% who will believe ANYTHING, it’s the real Paul now. For those who think a little more,
        It’s a fake Paul since 1966. But, we’re supposed to think the REST of the Beatles phenomenon is “real.”

        “The best way to convince somebody you’re not lying, is to tell them that you are.”

        “Lovely Rita” is about softening attitudes toward authority. “Let It Be” is about promoting passivity. Etc. Etc.
        Tavistock BS, all the way.

    • john

      Leading internet sources will tell you that Paul McCartney, composer and bassist of the Beatles, lived 18 June 1942-present. But if you believe the rumors, he actually died in 1966 and the present “Paul” is a lookalike. Some cite the “Frog Song” as evidence that he’s a different person to the one who wrote “Yesterday”, but as with most conspiracy theories, there’s more to it if you dig a little. According to some, there’s a wealth of evidence that Paul is dead. And so here are the Top 10 Signs that Paul McCartney Actually Died in 1966.

      10. “The Walrus was Paul”

      the clue comes from “Glass Onion” on the White Album, when John sings – “well here’s another clue for you all/The walrus was Paul”. Theorists got excited over the mention of Paul in the lyrics and rumors started flying that walrus was a Scandanavian word,meaning death.

      9. Billy Shears

      This clue all ties in with the man that was said to have replaced Paul – William Shears Campbell, winner of the 1965 Paul lookalike competition. When the band are announcing the arrival of Billy Shears at the start of Sgt Pepper, they are actually introducing the new version of Paul. It’s also a bit of wordplay, as “Billy Shears” can be willfully misheard as “Billy’s here.”

      Apparently, a picture of the real Billy (above) appears on the poster that was given away with the White Album, and he had plastic surgery to look more like the real Paul. Still, die-hard fans claim to notice differences between Paul and William, whom they christened “Faul”. Some even say that there is a 2-inch height difference and the color of his eyes has changed. As recently as 2010, things “Faul” said in interviews were still being picked apart for discrepancies.

      8. Magical Mystery Tour Cover Art

      An obscure one next, from the fittingly obscure Magical Mystery Tour EP. On the cover, the word “Beatles” is spelled out in stars, but if you put a mirror up to it, it comes up with a number – 2317438. What’s the significance of the number? It’s meant to be the telephone number of a London mortuary, but there’s no evidence that anyone ever called this number to find out.

      The clues don’t end there though – there’s a cartoon of Paul, with a cracked head, labelled “The Fool on the Hill”. There’s a picture of all 4 Beatles where Paul is wearing a black carnation, and the others are wearing red. And then there’s a picture of Paul, sitting in front of a poster that says “I was”.

      7. Revolution 9

      This track from the White Album is largely inexplicable, with its strings of gibberish, strange noises and Yoko Ono droning “number 9″ over and over again. But again it contains clues that point to Paul’s demise. Lyrics like “his voice was low and his eye was high and his eyes were closed” and “intended to die” are meant to refer to Paul, but the real giveaway is when you play it backwards. There’s the noise of a car crash, a scream and then the repeated phrase “turn me on dead man”. It seems there is some point to that track after all…

      6. Lyrical Prophecy

      A bit of a red herring next. Many conspiracy-theory sites list the lyric “I was alone I took a ride I didn’t know what I would find there” as another pointer, but the theory collapses under scrutiny. That line was taken from “Got to Get You Into My Life”, a track from Revolver .Revolver was released on 5 August 1966, a full 3 months and 4 days before Paul’s supposed accident. I think we can safely rule this one out, unless it was Paul singing about his own death. Now, that really would be spooky…

      5. Yesterday and Today “Butcher Cover”

      Now here’s a cover that provoked its own controversy. A product of a photo shoot with Robert Whitaker, this gruesome picture adorned a clumsily put-together compilation of Beatles’ tracks from various albums, aimed at the American market. When it was released in the US on 20 June 1966, the cover causes immediate outrage and new covers were sent out to stick over the old ones, featuring Paul in a trunk. A few years later both covers would be raked for clues, such as the decapitated head in Paul’s lap and the way that Paul seems to be in a coffin.

      4. “I Buried Paul”

      Another clue which at least fits into the chronology, this derives from a murmur at the end of “Strawberry Fields Forever”, which was released as a double A-side in February 1968. It’s unclear what John Lennon is saying at the end, but it certainly sounds a bit like “I buried Paul”. Later, John would insist that the line was “cranberry sauce“. Sound unlikely? Bear in mind the original lyrics to “Yesterday” were “Scrambled eggs, oh my darling how I love your legs”. Suddenly, Lennon muttering about a condiment doesn’t seem anything out of the ordinary.

      3. Linda Eastman

      This was a cruel but plausible fan theory that points to Paul becoming Faul. Paul had been in a relationship with actress Jane Asher for 3 years prior to the “accident” and they were living together. Two years later he was marrying Linda Eastman, with the smallest of gaps in between women. Paul’s fans – who George referred to as the “Apple Scruffs” – were skeptical about his choice of bride and sneered at awkward Linda who had none of the poise of Jane. When Paul’s “death” was uncovered, many people took his change of personality as evidence that he wasn’t the same Paul who’d dated Jane. He also withdrew from London and spent time with his family and sheepdog on a remote Scottish farm. Case closed?

      2. Abbey Rd Cover Art

      The cover art of the Beatles’ last-recorded album is supposed to be blatant proof of Paul’s death. The iconic walk across the zebra crossing is meant to be Paul’s funeral procession, with George as scruffy denims as the gravedigger, barefoot Paul as the corpse, Ringo as the pallbearer in black, and all-white John as the preacher. Then it’s said that if you zoom in, a car license plate reads “28 IF” – 28 if Paul had lived. It can be argued that Paul would have been 27, not 28 in 1969 but Eastern religions include months spent in utero as part of someone’s age, and the Beatles were very involved in Eastern religion at the time. The first part of the license plate – “LMW” stood for “Linda McCartney weeps”. Probably the most famous set of clues, but not the most compelling.

      1. Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band Cover Art

      The album that introduced Billy Shears was bound to be a treasure trove of visual clues, especially considering the famously complicated cover art. Some “clues” are more convincing than others, but there are a lot of them. A floral wreath spells out “Beatles” with a bass guitar with only three tuning pegs, indicating that only three Beatles were left alive. There’s an open palm behind Paul’s head – a symbol of death in some societies- and a tiny Aston Martin, representing the car he was driving in the apparent crash. There’s a picture of the four early Beatles, and they seem to be looking into a grave. Meanwhile, inside Paul wears an armband with the initials OPD – said to stand for “officially pronounced dead” – and on the back, Paul faces backwards and George’s thumb points to the line “Wednesday morning at five o’clock as the day begins” which is supposed to be the time of the accident.

      But it’s the disc itself which is said to hold the greatest clue – if you hold a mirror along the drum in its center, a message appears, reading “I ONE IX HE DIE”. It’s been interpreted as meaning “ 1 1 9 he die”, or 11 November, the date the accident is meant to have happened. Other people have interpreted it as “1″, “ONE” and “I” referring to the three remaining Beatles, and the X representing the dead Paul. The lyrics of the album were dissected too, until the full theory arose, involving Paul, a car, an early morning drive and a girl called Rita. :

      • Impeachment Now!

        Thank you…lots of information (that I’ll verify) but very compelling. What’s the importance behind this…
        That if it can be done once it probably has been done more than once in a lot of places and times.

    • SeashoreMary

      The story is false.

      No, Ringo Starr Didn’t Just Confirm Paul McCartney Died In 1966

      Please be careful and ALWAYS DOUBLE TRIPLE check sources before posting silliness. It makes one look lazy for not cross checking…

    • BlueDissident

      FYI This Story has not been confirmed by Starr. I tracked down the news item here
      This site is Zionist.

      Check your sources peeps.

    • ronix

      I believe he was replaced long ago.

    • saturnx311

      What is the date of “this morning”?
      I was discussing this with friends during the media frenzy over this, and we all decided it was a publicity stunt. The fame of this group could not last forever, we thought, and it seemed logical that they’d try something like this to stir up public sentiment and get the fire going again.
      Why put out all the clues? It could well be one way, or the other– BUT, that photo of Billy Shears certainly is enlightening. I think, though, that if indeed it was Billy composing all the material, then he was far more talented than Paul, who seems to be talented at covering, not composing.
      It’s interesting stuff though– not so much from the “paparazzi” perspective, but from the view that the people managing publicity for the band after ’66 were absolutely brilliant at reviving record sales. Imagine what all this stuff did for EVERYBODY’S bank account!
      All the clues on the pic above: “Paul’s” finger pointing down, barefoot, the VW plate 28-IF, etc., are they a hoax, or are they to soften the blow of his death?
      Makes for interesting water-fountain discussions, at least. Fascinating!

      Really? The global economy is collapsing before our very eyes, the drums of WWIII are beating loud and clear, and THIS is what you find newsworthy?

    • Cat

      the problem for the debunkers here is the height difference between the Paul just before the ‘accident’ and the Paul now. There is no way he could have grown at least 3 inches from just prior to him dying and then being seen again after a couple of years hidden from the public. Other than that, I doubt Ringo Starr would risk his reputation and come out with such a fabrication if there weren’t some truth to it!

      Listening to the so-called George Harrison testimony, and the hints everywhere, they sure as hell went to a lot of trouble to do that if for no reason! The wool is being pulled over your eyes at every turn so stop being so gullible to assume this couldn’t happen! Listen to the testimony and hear what is said about the consequences of Paul dying would have on the public at the time. Not to mention to loss of billions of dollars in revenue if the Beatles were to dismantle because they lost one member. I didn’t believe it either but that recording certainly had me think again!

      Ever walk barefoot on asphalt or sand in the hot summer sun

      That image of barefoot Paul walking across hot asphalt tells it all.

      So Paul took his shoes off cause it was hot but walks across hot asphalt barefoot without a flinch.

      Paul is switched out and they tell us this at every look or listen.

      There is so much total rubbish on this website these days it is just not worth reading any of the articles anymore…Bye

      • Lord Humungus

        Reading the articles? That’s just plain silly.

        We come here to watch the inmates slapping each other around with wet mops and pretending to run the hospital.

        Lord humungus gravely disappointed to find he’s seen this import movie before.

      Damn you Paul McCartney and Wings…you created music that would have been created by the original Paul McCartney had he lived? Damn you!

    • Mikeol1987

      no one saw my post then…. Ringo has been on Tour in South America for over a week, even when this happened. so How he could be giving an interview in hollywood whilst he is in South America is beyond me.

      Wise up.

      Well with this alien soul Resurrection technology being used on humans, no telling what they did with Paul after he smashed up and had his soul rerouted to a similar model look alike.

    • Times up 2015

      I really h8 to Snopes, but…..
      As somebody else said on here, it’s a real shame this stupid shiat is even in the top news here when so much is burning on the world front. This is a junk piece.

    • FirebrandOne

      I would be of the opinion that this entire conspiracy was put out to give conspiracy theories a bad name, it was good attempt but there are too many holes in the story.

    • Seraphic

      All someone has to do is use voice recognition software to see if there is two different people but oh no the conspiracy nuts would rather analyse cryptic messages.

        and the reason there were so many Elvis sightings is that he didn’t die.

        • DK

          I always believed Elvis had a breakdown with all the barbiturates he took and was in seclusion in a sanatorium for 20 years explaining why Precilla inherited his fortune in the mid 1990′s.

      • NWO for Dummies.

        DK there is very convincing evidence that he did not die….including voice recordings that are obviously him where he agreed to it believing his death was staged to protect him from a mob hit.

        • NWO for Dummies.

          Personally I think the CIA simply just had another JFK/MLK moment, but couldn’t rely on anyone to get the job done….

          ………t he agents’ response would have went something like this……..”ELVIS!?…’ve got to be kidding!

          so they had to convince him there was a hit out on him and it was the only way,. ie to fake his death.

        • DK

          Everyone dies, the question of Elvis is when not if but when, the key thing was the remarkable ‘official’ will which allowed Lisa Marie Presley to inherit her fathers fortune only on her 25th Birthday – in 1993 some 16 years after his official death.

          Wills come into effect immediately upon death, at which point the estate is divided, Lisa should have been given her share which would have been put into a trust until her legal majority which in Tennessee was 18 until 199 therefore she should have come into her inheritance in 1986.

          It would place the real death of Elvis between 1986 and 1993

        • Redlist Renegade

          Elvis DID actually die ! I knew one of his band members that was there the night he passed away and he saw the body in Elvis’s bathroom upstairs in Graceland . Believe what you want to but I’m sure he died the night that he was reported to have back in 1977 .

    • DK

      For one I am happy with 5 Beetles, however it is a shame in fact that an entire generation took music so seriously that they would shout Judas to a performer. Ringo (2011) and George (1976 BBC interview) both all but admitted a Paul replacement was arranged if nothing else the public lie has given credence to the illuminati controls the world theory.

      All that is required is a single blood test to match Paul’s hair that his girl fans tore off in the 1960′s – immediate proof of identity for around $150 but still the band would have had 5 members and a more colourful history – but not the end of the world.

      And yes I think it was a spoof article which has unfortunately backfired, Rich Rothschild Jew media moguls exposing rich British media establishment is the equivalent of the Socialist Workers Party mob storming a Conservative party conference in election year and torching the building because they are evil capitalists until Cameron retorts but you too are funded by the Rothschilds through the Fabians.

      This is how you do the job of attacking an establishment ally properly..

      Paul made a I’m so sorry song to uncle Albert.

      We’re so sorry, uncle Albert
      Sorry if we caused you any pain

      We’re so sorry, uncle Albert
      But there’s no one left at home and I believe I’m going away

      (Then it goes into a long distance far away sounding voice calling out.)

      We’re so sorry, uncle Albert
      But we haven’t done a bloody thing all day

      We’re so sorry, uncle Albert
      But the candles on the boil and were so easily called away

      That always sounded like a message from beyond

    • Logicgirl

      Just another case of people becoming money machines. Let’s face it, Elvis, Whitney, Micheal Jackson were all huge stars and made a lot of people rich. All of them became addicts trying to keep up with the demand of those around them. They were worth more dead, than alive. Alive, they would have fizzled out because eventually their drug addiction would have come out and they could not perform. Their fans would have been disappointed in them.. that would kill the money machine. Dead, they were forever that great star….
      It does not surprise me that Paul died and they replaced him.

    • G

      How is this story still floating on the front end. Is Paul doing this from the beyond.

      If he ever gets out here, gonna give it all away – Band on the run.

    • Anonymous

      The bit I have trouble with is that Faul was right handed and had to learn to play left handed?? Is there anyone in the world who could swap orientation and still be as skillful? I doubt it. Guitar/Bass players, try it yourself. And Paul’s talent and song writing style was transferrable too? Very unlikely.

    • Pen Name

      What did the letter ‘F’ do to the letter ‘P’ to get it’s face ripped off?
      Paul Faul :P

    • Gorganzola

      Does this mean John Lennon is still kicking? :mrgreen:

    • Talos4

      Pure nonsense. Once again, this site never fails to amuse with it’s tabloid stories that are concocted on slow news days. I am just as open-minded as the next person, but to read this kind of nonsense here and have it to be taken as factual is pushing the limits of credibility, and entering the world of stupid comedy.
      We have all heard the stories of Elvis’ death being faked and staged, and still being alive throughout the 1980′s, and hearing “voice messages” being left by “him”, that stated his being alive, and living incognito somewhere in the U.S.

      This is the kind of stuff made by the World Weekly News in order to entertain the masses, and dupe the gullible.
      Next thing you know, “Ringo” is going to say that JFK is still alive too, and was replaced by a “look-alike” at Dealey Plaza, so as to prevent Pete Rose from being caught betting on Baseball…. :lol:

      This is proof positive that Before Its News is a cyber nuthouse. 99.9% of whats posted is check out lane rag sheet insanity created for the wing nuts to get to get the attention they so crave. later

      • DK

        99% of what is posted never makes it onto Editors picks or the rankings, simply because Editors Picks comes from the rankings and the majority of those are artificially pinged which is not exactly a hard scripting job with false ip added to your packets.

        If BIN looks like a loony asylum it is because it has been made to look like one as a price of its freedom to post.

        Try finding anywhere at all which will allow you to post an article without censorship and a now significant Google ranking, which BIN now has having become a defacto Google article nexus containing links throughout to external sites.

        BIN contains EVERYTHING, the price of which is that it contains EVERYTHING nutty as well with plenty of fruits.

    • Donnybrook

      Yeah right…. he was a dead (pardon the pun) ringer, who just happened to play bass, AND was left handed?

    • DK

      Actually Paul Maccartney did not die, his name was ‘James’ Paul was the stage name. If someone else replaces him with the same stage name it is no different than players in Shakespeare plays playing parts – of course you have to realize there is a play and they are but players.

      True, regarding hidden messages on beatle records. I think and not having listened to beatle records since I was a teenager, at the end of strawberry fields forever, John is clearly heard saying, and you have to listen closely at the very end ” I buried Paul”
      I remember putting my ear to the speaker on the stereo and actually holding my breath and listening very closely to catch it.

      This has been discussed for 50 years. People even recorded Album Tracks on reel to reel and played them backwards. The Sgt. Pepper Album has a lot of clues.

    • CeeLeeRose

      Well….My, My, My!…..Ive never seen SO MANY comments from UserNames Ive never seen before on a single story here @ B4IN’s?

      THAT alone says something in itself?

      Seems like well more than 1/2 are calling BS right outta the box based purely upon their own “opinion”…

      Rather than the facts or truth of the matter, or the peoples involved 1st hand accounts….

      The trolls & self appointed “experts” here seem pretty thick on this one?……

      Howbout instead of screaming “NO!NO!NO!-BS!BS!BS!-CONSPIRATARDS!!!”……Try saying: “Hmmm?-I dont really know? -it might actually be true?”

      Shit, you’d think the article was speaking about the existence of God or sumptuously tiny, invisible, 4 inch tall, winged string bikini clad fairies for so many to immediately start the objection argument?
