Remember the Paul Is Dead rumor?

It was 50 years ago when the Paul is dead rumors started to spread around. Where it was a hoax or true, it was the most imaginative conspiracy theory ever created, plus it was entertaining. I stop being a conspiracy nut a year ago because people look at you at an askance and think you need psychiatric help. If it is a right wing conspiracy theory, people will kind of believe you with great reservation, but left wing conspiracy theories? Call the cookie truck to haul you away to the funny farm but the Beatles conspiracy theory? Sure…why not? No harm in that.
I remember the radio shows about it and the underground papers articles about it. I think there was T.V shows about it. My wife has a special edition of a magazine called: Paul is Dead. After hearing Paul’s music in the 70’s I think it was true, Paul is dead. Here is a video about it.

1. Yes I do,

I was just a kid and was so worried. I mean I had his face on my lunch box after all.

I saw him a few years back, if that was a tribute band then Ticketmaster owes me some back pay.

4. Yes, I do. I was 17 in the fall of 1969 and had been a big Beatles fan.

I didn't know what to make of the "evidence" at the time. I still don't. A lot of it seems to be a real stretch, a product of overactive imaginations and selective interpretations, which this video has no problem debunking. But some of it still raises questions for me, and that which puzzles me the most is not included in this video. It's the strange case of Paul McCartney's changing ears!

7. I remember it vividly. Amazing what they came up with. Never believed it but...

It WAS entertaining in a Twilight Zone way.
