    Whether it is true or not, a very interesting listen on the street of Paul McCartney dying and being replaced by another person.

    Look this was fun for about a day of internet research when I was in my 20s. But sorry, Paul is very much alive and not replaced by some rando who somehow possessed the same amount if not more talent than the "real" Paul.

    Not if you play the album at 78 backwards and stand on your head while gargling. Then you hear, “Paul is a dead walrus.”

    I remember hearing this nonsense in my dorm at UF in 1983. I said something like they replaced him with an identical looking and identically talented left handed singer. The logic was he was barefoot on an album cover(abbey road I think). I think I said its equally likely that the Beatles started this as a joke or alternatively that Paul were some funky shoes to the photo session and didn't like how they looked in the pictures.

    Wel you know you have made it when there’s a ridiculous conspiracy theory about you, so there’s that.

    Corrected the post for you.
    This guy would fit right in with the 2020 Democrat candidates Donald J. Trump.

    IMO a somewhat underrated Beatles tune is rain. Listen to that with good speakers or headphones. Wow! Bass line is great & it puts to rest any doubts about Ringos chops.

    In the late 1960s, this rumor was a “thing” borne of supposed cues in albums. Big marketing tool to sell albums.

    Its sort of amazing that this half-baked theory came to be so well known without the internet.

    Wild conspiracy seems to be more of a far right thing.

    The QAnon people literally believe JFK Jr faked his death and will soon reveal himself.

    Exactly. I'm honestly surprised certain posters aren't flooding the boards with QAnon news daily.

    I will say that in the Murphree dorms, circa 1969, some of us took this quite seriously ... :):)

    It sounds like every person that commented did not invest even one minute of their time to watch the video, granted, it is quite long but you should at least watch some of it.
