It’s HERE!


I have a (right click then Save as.. to download MP3) two hour interview with researcher Clare Kuehn. We discussed the death and replacement of Beatle Paul McCartney in the fall of 1966. This is the first original audio content that I have produced myself and posted on this blog. Look for more interviews in 2013.

I first came across the whole Paul Is Dead (PID) phenomena in the summer of 2011. At first I thought it had to be a bunch of bullshit and that I could prove it was BS in a few minutes searching Google. However I soon found Forensic science proves PID. The post ’67 McCartney has different ears, jaw, nose hell the whole skull is different from the original. A grown man can’t get a different skull so that means that post 67 and pre 66 McCartney are different men. You will also want to checkout Faul’s False Ears


and Dying the Bea†les Legend: Mal Evans’ suspicious death on the Plastic Macca site as well.


Really all that is required to become a “PIDer” as they say is the ability to differentiate between a before and after photo. Here is a short YouTube video that compares the shoe sizes of Paul and Faul:

If you look at enough photos it becomes painfully obvious that Paul and Faul are different men. Faul is taller, has wider shoulders, bigger feet – he’s just a bigger guy than Paul.

When I haven’t been researching 9/11 I have been trying to piece together as much as I can about the death and replacement of James Paul McCartney (1942-1966).

Clare has done a lot more PID research than I have hence the reason for the interview. So has Tina Foster. Tina Foster’s blog, Plastic Macca is a wealth of PID research – be sure to check it out! Also checkout the 60IF document supposedly written by George Harrison. These are good places for the uninitiated to start. The legend goes that Harrison verbally told the story to someone in India and they transcribed it which explains some of the broken English. 60IF also confirms the involvement of the intelligence community in the whole affair. I can’t vouch for the authenticity of 60IF but anyone researching PID should read it and make up their own mind about it.

There has been a lot of speculation that Paul died in a car crash. I haven’t been able to confirm HOW he died but I strongly suspect he was murdered and it was no accident. Paul’s replacement is often referred to as “Faul” meaning a fake Paul. Faul is often identified as Billy Shears or William Campbell. I have not been able to confirm this person’s (former) identity I just know that he is not James Paul McCartney (JPM) born in 1942.

The Sgt. Pepper’s album cover clearly depicts a funeral scene:

The Paul McCartney on Sgt. Pepper’s (June 1967) looks different from the Paul McCartney on the Yesterday and Today “butcher” cover from June 1966:

If one looks closely at the album covers and the findings of the Italian forensics team then it becomes obvious that the 1967 Paul McCartney is not the real JPM born in 1942.

When exactly did JPM die? There has been some speculation that he died in Seattle after the Beatles August 25, 1966 concert there. But there are several photographs taken from the San Francisco show August 29, 1966 that prove the real JPM did indeed play the final Beatles concert. Here is one:

What gives fuel to the Seattle rumors are photos of Faul getting off of the plane at the San Francisco airport:

There is speculation that the white-haired man on the top of the stairs is an intelligence operative. And here is an interesting quote from photographer Jim Marshall: “We spent 10 years trying to find out the identity of the stewardess in that shot. We even tried going through the Kiwi Club, which is the American Airline Stewardesses’ Association, but we’ve never been able to find out who that girl was.” So it is possible that the “stewardess” in this photo is no stewardess at all but an intelligence operative. Would it take 10+ years to track down a regular stewardess? Not likely.

The Beatles history is a bit foggy in the September through the end of December 1966 timeframe so it is difficult to pin down exact dates. There are photos of Faul at the studio in December 1966 so we know the switch was made before then. See Tina Foster’s blog for those photos.  There is some speculation that the Melody Maker awards show was the last time the real JPM was seen alive in public. There is some ambiguity to the exact date of the Melody Maker show. It may have been taped and aired at a later date as well. It was September 13, 1966 according to this photo:

I found this on the internet as well: Paul McCartney watches experimental music in London which took place September 15, 1966. According to the legend the Sgt. Pepper’s drum kit spells out “I ONE IX HE DIE”

Which is generally interpreted as meaning Paul died on September 11, 1966 although it could be November 9, 1966.

What can we make of all of this? When I first saw the photos of the Beatles getting off of the plane in San Francisco and it was Faul instead of JPM I was taken aback. That means that the plot to replace Paul was already in motion. I think that they were seeing if they could replace Paul and get away with it. There is nothing in the press that I can find that mentioned Paul had a double at the airport. No one seemed to be the wiser so they went ahead with the operation. Indeed in 1969 rumors were rampant that Paul was dead and Life magazine put Faul on the cover and proclaimed that “Paul is still with us.” When all of the major media outlets go along with the cover story then you know that the intelligence community is involved.

So who had Paul killed? There had to be powerful forces involved to kill and replace Paul McCartney. It takes even more power to cover up the crime and get the mainstream media to go along with it for 46 years and counting. I have no idea WHO was actually behind it. WHY did the Beatles and his family go along with it? I can only speculate but I imagine the family was paid off and/or intimidated. The 60IF document makes it sound like the Beatles thought Paul and Brian were kidnapped and the “intelligence service” was helping them out of a jam. I believe that the intelligence community was running the whole thing start to finish. They manipulated the Beatles into going along with it. Again according to 60IF John had a burning desire to continue and not let the “kidnappers” win. So they continued on with a replacement. It appears that John thought the role of Faul would end with the end of the Beatles.

WHY did someone want Paul killed in the first place? So far I have not been able to determine a motive or suspects. So this leaves us with a bunch of unanswered questions. Iamaphoney may soon release information that answers some of these questions. Apparently there is a cease and desist order preventing the release of the next video.

The PID topic is usually met with contempt and scorn. The worn out phrase “conspiracy theory” is usually applied. My favorite objection is “they wouldn’t do that.” What a load of BS that is – YES THEY WOULD! Just because YOU wouldn’t do something doesn’t mean THEY wouldn’t. Everyday people have no concept what the power elite will do to maintain power. You can’t apply your standards of behavior to THEM. The power elite will assassinate presidents (JFK, FDR, Lincoln), stage terror attacks like 9/11 or OKC to start wars and whatever else it takes to dominate. They will also kill and replace cultural icons like Paul McCartney.

UPDATE 3/29/13

Clare has discovered a new PID clue. Check that out on her blog.

Paul is Dead

Faux Paul?

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….
