When I was growing up I was not a huge Beatles fan. As a kid I got stuck listening to the lame country music that my parents were into. When I was about 13 I heard AC/DC and that changed my life. Then I started getting into hard rock and heavy metal. Pop and country didn’t do much for me. I was born in 1968 so by the time I was a teenager in the early 80s Beatlemania had pretty much died down. I didn’t pay much attention to all of The Beatles minutiae. I didn’t hate The Beatles but they were on the periphery of my world.
However I had a Beatles tune in my head the other day: The End from the Abbey Road album. I was digging the guitar solos in the middle. I started tooling around Google and I stumbled on to all of this Paul is Dead (PID) business. What do you mean Paul McCartney is dead? Everybody knows that Paul and Ringo are the only surviving members of The Beatles. Paul has had a long and mostly successful solo career and he’s selling out baseball stadiums this summer. The Twins even tried to get him to play Target Field but he couldn’t do it because of a scheduling conflict. Surely a Dead Man doesn’t play baseball stadiums. Or does he?
I figured it would take about 10 minutes on Google to prove that Paul McCartney is in fact Paul McCartney. Except I found this article from Wired Magazine in Italy: Forensic
science proves Paul was replaced. Gabriella Carlesi is a forensic scientist and she proves that Paul McCartney was replaced in late 1966. They got two sets of photos: pre and post 66. The pre 66 pictures match perfectly with each other and the post 66 pictures also match perfectly with each other. However the pre and post 66 pictures do NOT match. If you look closely at the pictures it is rather obvious that they are
different people. The real Paul McCartney’s face is rounder and smaller than the
current edition of Paul (Faul). Paul’s mouth is also noticeably smaller than
Faul’s. The ears are also different. WOW! Who’d a thunk it?!?!
Wouldn’t anyone notice if Paul McCartney was replaced?!?! HELLO!! The Beatles “were more popular than Jesus Christ” to quote John Lennon. Apparently a lot of people did notice: there were plenty of rumors going around starting in the fall of 1969 that Paul had died and was replaced. There are plenty of PID websites out there.
I may not be a forensic scientist but now that we have YouTube it’s easy enough to jump in the Time Machine and see for ourselves if in fact that’s the real Paul McCartney up on stage these days. Check out this David Frost interview from 1965 with the real Paul McCartney and compare it to this 1967 Faul interview. Faul is a complete joke. That hairdo is laughable. It’s not even CLOSE to the real Paul McCartney. Get a load of this interview with David Letterman from 2009. HA! He still doesn’t know much
about early Beatles history and in fact even admits that “people know my
history much better than I do.” You’d think after 43 years of playing a role
you’d get some of these details down Faul…
The clincher is of course is seeing The Real Paul McCartney live on stage. Check out Twist and Shout from Shea Stadium in 1965 – incredible. It’s easy to see why The Beatles were such a phenomenon. The energy, the rhythm, the melodies and harmonies are all there – an extremely tight performance. Not to mention all the screaming and crying girls just losing it. Compare that to the only “live” appearance with Faul – the rooftop deal in January 1969. Faul looks nothing like Paul onstage. He’s taller, thicker body, has a beard and moves nothing like the original. Of course nobody a got a very good look at this farce from street level.
This leaves us with a bunch of unanswered questions. So why was the original Paul replaced? He obviously died but how? Was it a car crash? Was he wacked? Why did everyone go along with it? Were people paid off or intimidated? Obviously our watch dog mainstream media didn’t do much digging into this deal. Why would the media participate in the cover-up? Well, when I see all of the mainstream media asleep on an issue that usually indicates the involvement of one or more intelligence agencies. Are the alphabet soup agencies replacing people on a regular basis?
All I know is that the real James Paul McCartney probably died in September 1966 and that the individual using his name on stage now is a total fraud and a phony. And if you think you are irreplaceable you better think again. If they can replace Paul McCartney at the peak of Beatlemania they can replace you….
