Obviously, Paul is not dead (though in 1968, I was clearly convinced that he had died in the auto accident..I bought the whole thing!) Here's my question....the "Clues" (Pepper cover, playing Revolution #9 backwards, Mystery Tour..Paul wears black boutineer in Your Mother Should Know, Abbey Road cover...I could go on)...did the Beatles plan those or were those just coincidences? I can't look at Abbey Road cover without seeing Paul as the dead man and George as the gravedigger. What was going on there? I just have a hard time chalking all that up to our just wanting to read something into it all. (Especially Revolution #9...I swear it says "Paul is dead" when you play that backwards). Did they have something to do with all that?

I've never heard "Paul is dead" when you play it backwards, but I've heard the "Turn me on, dead man" and Yoko clearly says "Satan, Look At Me, please."

There is no way they did any of the "clues" on purpose. The Paul is dead thing didn't start until 1969, after Abbey Road came out. So why would they be playing off something that nobody was even thinking. None of the clues would lead anybody to think Paiul died in 1966. The only reason people find clues is because they want to. None of the clues are at all convincing, I wouldn't even call any of them coincidences. It's just people seeing what they want.

Was listening to a Radio 2 programme which had a feature on Abbey Road and supposedly they all were going to wear a certain make of suit (Tommy Nutter) but George turned up in his Denims. It had nothing to do with grave digging and therefore wasn't a clue to having buried Paul. In my head it was all coincidence only which people began to interpret to fit to an already settled hypothesis (not a method Sherlock Holmes would have approved of).

I don't believe any of the Paul is dead stuff - but the one "clue" you can't deny is John singing in Glass Onion "and here's another clue for you all, the Walrus was Paul" - now that is direct, pre-1969 and not a coincidence because it refers back to the cover shot from Magical Mystery Tour - where the Walrus has the hand over it's head - which supposedly was a sign of death.

And I don't buy any part that it happened - but we can't deny John's line - meaning the Beatles were fueling the hoax by 1968.

John's own comment: "I threw the line in — ‘the Walrus was Paul’ — just to confuse everybody a bit more."

Here's Mr. Adorable himself talking about it on Letterman:

I agree with everyone else.  Its coincidences.  You can create a conspiracy out of anything.  I remember reading about the MMT Black rose thing, and they simply didn't have enough red ones, so Paul took the black one.  Pure coincidence.  

It's like that "documentary" on Netflix that people actually believe.  It's such crap!  I'm not even getting into it.  ahdn_paul_01

How can John be fueling a hoax 18 months before it began - or I am not understanding that correctly?

My point is that I think the hoax began before 1969 and that somewhere in their personal twisted sense of humor the Beatles began pushing this Paul is Dead thing along somewhere in 1966 or 1967. They may not have started it - but they jumped on it -

Excellent input from everyone about Paul's "death." I was young and stupid then..I believed anything. I should have known God could never have created TWO gorgeous specimans...there'll only ever be the one Paul McCartney. But, if they ever decide to clone someone, I vote we clone Paul!
