Exclamation "Clues" proving that Paul McCartney Is Dead

Many Beatles fans beleive that Paul McCartney died in November 1966 and that the other three Beatles planted clues to get the story out after having replaced him with a double; the "evidence" was finally revealed when a disc jockey in Detroit supposedly connected the dots. Here are the "clues," plus some logical explanations:

On the cover of Help, Paul is the only one not wearing a hat, as if he doesn't fit in. (How could this be a legitimate clue, as Paul supposedly died in 1966 and Help! came out in 1965?)

On the cover of the U.S. album Yesterday and Today, Paul is sitting in an upright packing trunk. Turn it sideways, and he appears to be stiing ion a casket. (Yesterday and Today came out in June 1966; how could this be a clue if Paul died in November? Plus, a picture from the same photo session used on a French EP sleeve shows John in the trunk, with the trunk on its side and the other three Beatles posed around him!)

On the cover of Revolver, Paul is drawn in profile, as if he doesn't fit in. (Again, Revolver was issued before Paul supposedly died, and Klaus Voorman drew all of the Beatles differently; Paul is in profile, John is looking to one side, Ringo is looking forty-five degrees at an upward angle, and George is looking straight ahead.)

Seven songs on Revolver contain references to death, and "I'm Only Sleeping" is supposedly a song about death, with sleep as a metaphor. (Revolver happens to be a serious album, so it deals with death seriously. "I'm Only Sleeping" was John's song about his own laziness, not death.)

On "Strawberry Fields Forever," John says "I buried Paul." (No, he says "cranberry sauce" - listen carefully! On the unedited recording from Anthology 2, he says it twice, then tells Ringo to calm down.)

On the cover of Sgt. Pepper, comedian Issy Bonn extends a hand over Paul's head, a Greek or American Indian way of indicating death. (Well, which is it? Anyway, numerous photos were taken for the cover of Sgt. Pepper, with the Beatles in many different poses. The Beatles simply chose the best of the lot for the sleeve.)

On the same cover, the other Beatles appear to be propping Paul up, Weekend at Bernie's style. (See previous explanation.)

The yellow flowers on the cover of Sgt. Pepper, form a left-handed guitar; the four stems across indicate that it is a bass guitar, and the freshly dug ground indicates a grave. Also, the flowers seem to spell out "PAUL?" (The floral arranger allowed a young boy who delivered the flowers to arrange a guitar shape, but regretted it, saying it looked nothing like a guitar at all. Had she had it to do over again, she said, she wouldn't have bothered with such an arrangement.)

On the back cover of Sgt. Pepper, Paul's back is turned to the camera, as if he doesn't fit in. (Again, the Beatles posed in many different ways for the back cover and the gatefold; this picture was chosen at random.)

The words "WITHOUT YOU" are next to Paul's head. (They are from the lyrics of "Within You, Without You;" the lyrics were originally printed on the back cover, and this was just a coincidence.)

In the gatefold, Paul can be seen wearing an armpatch with the letters "O.P.D.," standing for Officially Pronounced Dead. (It actually reads "O.P.P.," for Ontario Provincial Police, sent to Paul by a Canadian fan. So - THERE!)

On ther front cover, the other Beatles are holding marching band instruments, but Paul is holding an oboe, which is not a marching band instument, as if he - you guessed it - doesn't fit in. Plus, the oboe is black - the color of death. (They were rock and rollers - what did they know about mraching band instruments? And when was the last time you saw a white oboe?)

The accident that killed Paul - a car crash - is chornicled in "A Day In the Life." (No, it isn't - that song chronicles the car crash that killed Guinness heir Tara Browne, a friend of the Beatles.)

On the cover of Magical Mystery Tour, the word "BEATLES" is spelled out in stars that, whe nheld up to a mirror, reveals a telephone number that connects to a man who can tell you all about Paul's death. (The telephone number spelled out belonged to a lighthouse keeper who knew nothing about the Beatles!)

On page three of the Magical Mystery Tour picture book, Paul, dressed in a British Army uniform, is sitting in front of a sign reading "I WAS;" two crossed British flags are on the wall behind him, which is a way of mourning United Kingdom Army dead. (Paul played an army major in that scene in the Magical Mystery Tour film; the "I WAS" sign means nothing; you always see crossed flags in military headquarters!)

On page 23, the Beatles are wearing white suits. Paul has a black carnation in his lapel; the others have red ones. (They ran out of red ones.)

In the Magical Mystery Tour film, after the "I Am the Walrus" sequence, a little girl tells John, "No, you are not!" which means the walrus was someone other than John. In the White Album song "Glass Onion," John sings, "Well, here's another clue for you all; the walrus was Paul." The walrus is a symbol of death in Scandinavia; on the Magical Mystery Tour album cover, Paul, not John, is wearing the walrus costume, and he's also in black.(John contradicted himself in the song "God," on his first solo album, insisting he was the walrus; the lyric in "Glass Onion" was just a joke to give Beatles fans a nonmystery to figure out. As for Paul wearing the walrus costume, he did so for the same reason Greg Brady became Johnny Bravo; he was the only one who fit the suit! )

On "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," George supposedly wails, "Paul, Paul." ("He's wailing, "Oh, oh.")

The song "Don't Pass Me By" contains the lyric "You were in a car crash." (What do you want, it was Ringo's first song - he'd get better as a composer!)

Between "I'm So Tired" and "Blackbird," John mutters nonsense that, played backward, says "Paul is dead, miss him. miss him." ( No, it doesn't! By the way, played forward, John's actually saying, "Monsieur, monsieur, how about another one?")

The voice uttering "number nine" repeatedly on "Revolution 9" says "Turn me on, dead man" when played backwards. (So, the dead man could be anyone, and besides, it sounds more like "Burn me on, Redman." John put this in "Revolution 9" after hearing it in an examination tape. He thought it was a hoot, and nine happened to be his lucky number.)

In his White album portrait, a skull appears to be peeking behind Paul's right shoulder. (It was a reflection of light, nimrods!)

The cover of Abbey Road is Paul's funeral procession. John, all in white, is the preacher; Ringo, all in black, is the undertaker; George, all in denim, is the gravedigger. Paul is barefoot, a sign of mourning in Sicily. He holds a cigarette in his right hand, even though the real Paul is left-handed. His eyes appear to be closed, meaning he's the corpse. (The Beatles dressed the way they always did at the time; six shots were taken, and in two of them, Paul is wearing shoes. His eyes were closed because the sun was in his eyes. So what if he was holding a cigarette in his right hand? I'm left-handed, and I hold things in my right hand!)

The license plate on the Volkswagen reads LMW for "Linda McCartney Weeps" or "Linda McCartney Widowed", and spells out his age - 28 IF he had lived. (How could Linda McCartney have been Paul's widow if she married not Paul but his impostor? Paul was 27 in August 1969, the month that photo was taken. The license plate read LMW 281F - yes, the "I" was a "1". They were leigtimate plates. The fellow who owned the VW lived across the street from Abbey Road Studios, where the photo was taken. Because of the album cover he had his plates stolen repeatedly.)

On "Come Together," John sings, "One and one and one is three." Three Beatles. One is missing. (John could have sung "One and one and one and one is four," but it wouldn't have fit the meter or the rhyme scheme.)

To be fair, Paul did have a transport accident in November 1966. It involved a moped, and he split his lip. By his own admission, he looked like Liston after fighting Ali, and so he grew a moustache to hide the scar. When the scar disappeared, so did the moustache.

Here's how Paul McCartney supposedly died. Sit back and have a laugh!

On Tuesday, November 8, 1966, Paul McCartney had a fight with the other Beatles during a recording session and left Abbey Road Studios in a huff in his Aston Martin (a model of which is on the lap of the Shirley Temple doll wearing the Rolling StonesT-shirt). Driving too fast, Paul crashed his car on this "stupid bloody Tuesday." A police van (the one on Abbey Road?) escorted the ambulance that took Paul to the hospital, where he was declared dead on Wednesday morning at five o'clock (as the day began). He was buried in a secret funeral on November 11 (Friday morning, at nine o'clock - called Veteran's Day in the U.S. but known as Remembrance Day in the U.K.) and replaced by a Paul McCartney lookalike from Scotland named Wiliam Campbell, who grew a moustache to look different from the real Paul, thus leading John and Ringo to grow moustaches and George to grow a goatee.

This is all nonsense. If William Campbell is the name of the Paul McCartney impersonator, how come no one can prove he really is someone else when they already have a name to go by? Also, while there was a Beatles session on November 8, 1966, it was a remix session that wasn't attended by any of the Beatles. All that happened on Abbey Road that day was that engineer Geoff Emerick created a mock stereo mix of "She Loves You" for a British greatest-hits package released that December. The Beatles themselves didn't return to Abbey Road to start what became the Sgt. Pepper LP until November 24.

As for Paul's Aston Martin, it never incurred so much as a scratch.

Another famous urban legend besides "Elvis is alive "is that Jim Morrison is alive and living in obscurity living in France as a poet.

Paul must've had a great embalmer (sp?), his corpse has been much better preserved than Keith Richards (who probably died somewhere around 1978) and Ron Howard (who I think died around the time Happy Days left the air)'s bodies are.

Some folks place him in South Africa, making a living as a businessman and writing poetry on the side.

By the way, some folks point to Paul being out of step - placing his right foot forward instead of his left, like the other three Beatles - on the Abbey Road sleeve. So what - John was the only one on that cover with his hands in his pockets. And that would prove. . . what?

Default "Paul McCartney Is Alive and Well... Maybe"

Back in 1969, Buffalo's WKBW had a special documentry on Paul McCartney's rumor. You should listen to it. Go to this site http://www.reelradio.com/gifts/pmwkbw69.html and click the play icon and listen to it in its entirety. Enjoy!
