Nothing like dusting off an old classic conspiracy.
I remember when I bought "Sargent Pepper's" back in the seventies, I thought that McCartney looked different. I commented on that to friends, and
that is when I heard about the whole McCartney was dead conspiracy. Liking conspiracies, I was interested in the whole subject. The symbols are all
clearly there, no one denies this. The question is, was it a hoax, or did McCartney really die, and was replaced by an imitator?
Starting in 1967 the band really did seem to change, they got darker, as well as turning out a number of great albums. All this new great material
could have been stuff that had already been wrote by Lennon and McCartney before possible death of McCartney. This is very conceivable. During this
period, the band seemed to also implode, during their greatest period of creativity. It was all very strange, and I think we can all also agree on
Now when you look at the pictures, Paul does seem to have changed, at least that is my take. That one web site that shows Lennon earlier and later
pictures, and then Paul, pointing out what seems to be a change in appearance, there seems to be some reasonable evidence, but it is not conclusive.
The thing is, there are imitators, who by mimicking the expressions and actions, and voice of others, especially with a little bit of make up, look a
lot like the person they are imitating. Combining the skill essentials of a good imitator, who looks like the person they are imitating, it could be
conceivably done in a way that fools the general public. I don't think it would take but a little surgical alteration, with close attention to make
up, especially for any photo shoots or appearances. Add in the facial hair, and it would make it even easier.
However, I do not believe that such a person could get by with this around people who knew the original person well. I do not think that there is any
way the imitator could have fooled people who were close to McCartney, especially his family, so that leaves a whole lot of people who would have to
be in on the charade. Many of these people could be kept from making a solid conclusion by simply limiting their association with the imitator. It
still seems that way too many people would have been in on the conspiracy for it to succeed. By now, someone would have had to talk, and the thing
would have become public.
How did McCartney's face begin to appear longer and thinner, while his body began to appear bigger. The face should have gotten heavier as well. In
addition, the band never again played publicly, except on a roof top, after this period, and that is very suspicious. Also, the very last Beatles
album was subpar in my opinion. McCartney's best songs after the Beatles were "Band on the Run", and "Live and Let Die", and once again, IMO,
very different in style from McCartney's Beatle days. His songs seemed to become more of a classical bent, more orchestrated, than the more basic
and harder hitting songs of the Beatles.
McCartney's death at the time would have set off massive waves in youth culture at the time, that was very, very suspicious of the PTB. There was
more at risk than large numbers of possible suicides. Also, what if the clean cut McCartney OD'd? Maybe!!! for these reasons they could have
gotten enough people to go along with the ruse but I doubt it. It is just too much to buy.
Still, I would think that the real McCartney would want to put these rumors to rest, and not want the world to think that he was an imitator of the
real thing. The fact that the rumors are still out there being actively discussed, and the question kept alive, might be the reason why so many are
still willing to go along with the ruse.
