Another clue here! 

Side note: I don't believe that Paul Is Dead.

I have a Beatles poster on my wall. You've probably seen it: https://www.amazon.co.uk/1art1-4331-Beatles-London-Poster/dp/B000CORLTM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1495366868&sr=8-2&keywords=beatles+poster

It looks as if it was taken in 63 or 64 so it doesn't line up with the theory but look at Paul - he's wearing a grey suit while the others wear black. Coincidence? Probably. But it's quite fun to analyse anything Beatles related for clues anyway. On Rubber Soul there seem to be a few: 'I'm Looking Through You, you're not the same' 'Drive My Car' etc.

and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make

Not sure whether to post this here, in the Sgt. Pepper's 50th Anniversary thread, or in a thread for Paul's upcoming birthday, but I though this would be the best place for it. A new Macca Lives video has been uploaded, and it's a big one! Loads and loads of photo comps. Haven't counted them, but they go quite fast and it's 8 minutes long, so it could be as much as 100.... Anyway, the piano renditions of Penny Lane and Here, There And Everywhere make it worth the time, I think.

I do not believe in paul is dead, it's probably an advertising strategy.
but in a demo of Let It Be Paul say "Read The Record On Mirror"

LOVE on a mirror: CODE

TOUR on a mirror:Look

L.H.C.B on a mirror: I ONEI X He Die
LOVE on a mirror



TOUR on a mirror

Haven't heard that demo, but isn't it likely Paul actually says "...read the Record Mirror", referring to the magazine?

I suppose you think John said "cranberry sauce" instead of "I buried Paul" as well?

....and 'House of Lords' instead of what we all know to be 'house of Paul'?

Every time I encounter a PIDer I direct them to Macca Lives on youtube. Fantastic at debunking it all, though I'm not sure if I just outright disbelieve it or think it was a marketing scheme.

Could Klaatu band have helped The Beatles to feed the rumor?
One of the members of this band that people claimed were The Beatles has a disc called LifeAfterLife
and on the cover there is a headless southpaw

Also look back at the sky, reference to Venus And Mars

I came across this comment in that weirdly amorphous Internet subcult of the Paul is Dead people:

Quote:

"I've found the easiest way to tell the two McCartneys apart is by
A: Eyelids/Eye socket shape. They do not share the same shape between the two men.
B: Any performance of him playing acoustic guitar pre-66, and after.

Paul No.2's arm is shorter. He does not have the same span of reach that Paul No.1 had, which enabled him to rest his thumb on the low E string, and that thumb almost crossed the width of the soundhole. He easily could have touched the neck of the guitar with his fingers from the position his arm played in. Which should be the same for Paul No.2. But it's not. He can't reach that far, only when using smaller bodied acoustics, but not the Martin D-28. Only if he "side-straddles" it (see clips from India or James Paul McCartney Special) on his left leg does his arms/fingers allow him to play songs Paul No.1 played with the same radius/ulna length/dimensions. Paul No.1 also had longer phalanges. Paul No.2 does not play the same chords Paul No.1 played for Yesterday, nor does he strum it the same way. And some of that reason may be down to that finger length."

End Quote.

As is usual in my experience reading their stuff, when they get down to some nitty grity about their "proof", I find I can't quite understand the mechanics of what the heck they're talking about.  Can anyone parse and explain that long paragraph in a way that is understandable?

One of the myriad "clues" that annoys me (because I can't "see" what is claimed to be so obviously there) is the supposed guitar (a clump of yellow flowers) lying on the dirt in front of the "burial" of the Beatles on the Sergeant Pepper album cover.  What annoys me is when the PIDers say "that's obviously a left-handed guitar".  How can one so easily determine that from that clump of flowers?

This is pretty much why PID is rubbish:

Look at this picture of Paul's father James:

As well as this picture of Paul aged 11:

They both have a strong resemblance to modern day Paul. 'Nuff said.ahdn_paul_01

I think we can all agree it's fake but i like making up stupid theories so i think this myth is cool.

If you're reading this, you are looking for something to do.

Not only that, but the Paul we've grown up with over the decades (if you're old enough) from the days of  his solo career, through Wings, then after Wings, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s, to now -- remarkably resembles the Paul from 1962-1966.  Every time I read or hear a PIDer talk about how the "true Paul" looks "so different" from "Faul" I'm wondering what planet they're on.  In addition, the Gestalt of Paul's physiognomy is singular, if not unique.  I've never seen anyone who looks like him, though occasionally you see someone who vaguely resembles him.  So for the other 3 Beatles and some supposedly nefarious cabal manipulating them to have found someone who looks that close to the original Paul -- and who has amazing musical talent and a similar charisma -- becomes ludicrous.
