Billy Shears is a character from the album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". The last verse of the first song goes,
"I don't really want to stop the show,
But I thought that you might like to know,
That the singer's going to sing a song,
And he wants you all to sing along.
So let me introduce to you
The one and only Billy Shears
And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band."
Then Ringo starts singing "With A Little Help From My Friends".
That's a real slick website with very little information on any of its topics, much of it is still under construction. There are tons of supposed
clues referring to the "death" of Paul so I'm surprised they didn't use more. If any of the "Paul is Dead" phenomena is based on anything real
at all I would guess it would be a symbolic death associated with obtaining a higher degree of initiation in some form of esoteric society or
religion. Of course if Paul died as early as they say he did (the version I've heard doesn't have him being replaced with Billy Shears but with the
winner of a Paul look-alike contest), the fake Paul's career will have exceeded the length of the original's by decades.
Noon Blue Apples makes it likely the website was inspired by Robert Anton Wilson's "Illuminatus" novels and the Discordian movement. It seems a
collection of popular conspiracy theories, quite shallow compared to ATS.
