Paul is Dead
The rumors of the death of Paul McCartney
This is the message one hears when they play the final lyrics of "I'm
So Tired" from the Beatles
White Album, backwards.
People have discovered phone numbers on some album covers and called them.
They recieved strange replies like, "you're getting closer" and "beware
of Abbey Road". Many people started to believe that Paul Mccartney
was dead. Of course, the phone numbers and messages could have been faked.
But at the time...
The way we've heard it is that, Paul got into this car accident early one Wednesday morning at 5 am while looking at a pretty meter maid, not
seeing the changing traffic lights. He wasn't killed outright, but his
car caught fire, a crowd of people stood around, and then he died from
head wounds (he lost his teeth and hair). The morning paper came out with
an article which was quickly censored. Enter William Campbell and the upcoming
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
One day, a Paul McCartney look alike contest was held. The winner was
William Campbell and he supposedly looked enough like Paul to sit in with
the other Beatles for photographs. There is a picture of William Campbell
on the poster that comes with the White album. He's in the lower left-hand
corner. A small picture, he has a mustache and is wearing glasses.
We do believe that the "hoax" might be a metaphysical statement made by
In a way, Paul did die (My God he's a vegitarian), spiritually,
as he was re-born in the ways of the Maharishi. A spiritual rebirth; his old self dying. The creative genius of the Beatles (and we think all of
them were involved to some extent in the great hoax) was to have done this
without anyone suspecting for a couple of years. It either started
when a DJ stated that he thought Paul McCartney was dead, and that the
proof lied in the album covers and lyrics of their songs,
or when some Columbia students smoked a little too much and started hearing things in the Beatles' songs.
