My friend and I were pondering this conspiracy theory the other day. Near my friend's house, on some private land, there is a pretty sizeable manor with about a million pounds worth of land behind it, and a guy who went to a school near mine- whose name is, amazingly, Tom Lennon (they all call him Lennie)- lives there. Now the father of Tom Lennon, who my friend has met a couple of times, looks apparently EXACTLY like Paul McCartney. Extremely similar facial features. And apparently, he has been in several bands and is a great musician, plays guitar, piano, bass. It's almost as if the real Paul McCartney dropped out of showbusiness in the 1960s and ever since has been living there, in Moor Park, Hertfordshire, England, in a big house with the money he made from the early Beatles days; and changed his second name to Lennon as an ironic joke, exactly the kind of thing a Beatle might do.

Creepy eh? All the clues are there...!

Obviously, taking a logical stand upon the matter, it's nonsense. But it was fun to discuss. The Paul Is Dead keyboard warriors do my head in; posting pictures of Paul pre-66 and then posting ones of him post-66 taken from a) completely different camera angles, with b) completely different lighting, c) comparing times where his weight has obviously fluctuated and with it his facial definition, and lastly d) completely difference facial expressions. Looking at close-ups of Paul's face compared to that of "Faul", you can see all of the same little freckles, scars and things which simply can't be replicated in a fake. Not to mention his vocal tone, vocal type, mannerisms, tics, songwriting and lyrical style, musical style, and way of expressing himself are all EXACTLY the same.

Was watching a vid called Is Paul Dead? on youtube (was following a loose thread of random beatles videos seeing where they lead and what is brought up) and my word its gone beyond looney tunes and is off the scale in the so pathetic its not funny just complete bollocks and very irritating section.

One of the so called 'clues' used was that in Help! when they perform Youre Going To Lose That Girl Paul plays bass and piano so that means 2 Pauls. Seriously!!! Man, there are some absolute braindead morons out there. Its not worth even going into why its wrong. Didnt help that the guy was trying to pass off a Magical Mystery Tour still as being from Help! Nope, no idea why either.

 

I shouldnt watch these. By the way where is my watch? Will have to go find it.

Hahhaha oh this is priceless, the magical Paul, he can play two instruments on video which isn't live broadcasted.

I hate when people use Pre-December 1966 facts, like if you're going to make crap up, stick to the story.

When people produce clues from Rubber Soul & Revolver i just want to give myself the biggest face palm of all time. Like somebody said earlier when i first heard and read about this i found it interesting just all the coincidences, but a lot of them was just the truth stretched a lot and others were just plain lies.

 

I just troll on Paul is Dead videos now and agree with the most invalid arguments going.

"Paul is dead, this is obvious in this video because he looks evil and the original Paul wasn't evil"

I have a US pressing of Rubber Soul on vinyl and it might be from '65 (not 1st pressing though) and there are some small spots in the back, like weared away. Anyways, it's funny that theres a spot on P making it look like Faul McCartney.

At first, the Paul is Dead thing seems to be complete nonsense, but when you really look at the evidence, you can see how obvious it is that Paul must be dead!

For example:

On the Revolver cover, Paul is facing to the side while the others are facing forward.

On the Sgt. Pepper's cover, the drum says 1 ONE 1 X HE DIE when you put a mirror in the middle.

On Abbey Road, John is the preacher (or God, take your pick), Ringo is the pallbearer, Paul is the corpse, and George is the gravedigger.

There are many more clues. This is just a sample of what is out there. I am completely convinced that Paul is dead.

 

P. S. Of course he's still alive! All of these "clues" are just stupid things people made up so they could create some sort of conspiracy theory and disrupt the lives of Beatles fans who will actually believe this and get all upset.

My favorite is when I see people who don't even have their fake facts straight. They'll talk about how his last song was Yesterday (though he wrote it long before he actually performed it..) I noticed a video on YouTube comparing his teeth in pictures, as well; someone thought he was wearing a partial dental prosthesis in an old picture.. who knows?
