As ‘conspiracy theories’ go, the suggestion that the real Paul McCartney died in 1966 and was replaced by an impostor is right up there with JFK, 9/11 and the moon landings hoax. When first heard, the very idea sounds preposterous. But how many who scoffingly dismiss it have spent any time looking into the hard evidence for the switch? Two years ago the suggestion that Jimmy Savile could have been sexually abusing children on BBC premises for 50 years would have been greeted with similar derision.
In this volume, Mark Devlin chats with Tina Foster, proprietor of the Plastic Macca blog, (http://plasticmacca.blogspot.co.uk/), the web’s leading source of information on ‘Paul Is Dead’. Also along for the ride is Matt Sergiou, who runs the Conspiro Media blog, (http://conspiromedia.wordpress.com/), documenting the darker side of the entertainment industries.
Tina goes through a multitude of evidence for McCartney being replaced, from data presented by two Italian forensic experts, to over 400 lyrical and symbolic clues placed in The Beatles’ music and imagery. We revisit the comments made by Heather Mills in 2007 about her discovering ‘a terrible secret’ about Paul, which take on new significance if viewed from this perspective. Also discussed are some aspects of ‘Paul’s intriguing behaviour in recent years, and some of the occult elements of The Beatles’ music. We end by speculating on who the impostor, (or impostors) may be, and on whether this secret will ever be revealed, or will remain a theory that goes with everyone to their graves.
As with all things, each listener must of course make up their own minds. but please do listen to all the information first!
