There is a long standing theory that Paul McCartney is actually dead and the individual portraying him now is a stand in. According to the theory, the real McCartney died, November 9th, 1966. His car skidded off an icy road and a crash into a pole led to his death.
The theory goes on to state that the rest of the Beatles were concerned that his death could cost them their success as a group, so they covered his death by bringing in a man that appeared identical, named, Billy Shears .Many analyze the photos and believe there are major physical differences if one just looks carefully. Some theorists have claimed that Billy Shears was an orphan and had once won a Paul McCartney look alike contest.
Many speculate the album cover of ‘Sgt. Peppers Lonely Club’ is depicting a burial. With many guests, flowers and freshly dug earth. Also showing the group all in black, to the left of the photo.
Though, I believe the creepiest piece of evidence the theorists have come up with is the song ‘Revolution #9’ played backwards. There are voices that can be heard saying, ‘Paul is Dead’.
What do you think? Is Paul McCartney still alive?
