Real Paul McCartney Died in 1966 and Look-alike Deceives Fans Bigtime– A HOAX

Real Paul McCartney Died in 1966 and Look-alike Deceives Fans Bigtime– A HOAX

Can’t you imagine that you idolize a different McCartney?

45-year old conspiracy theory has regained a kick back into circles after a fake news website World News Daily Report published an article claiming Paul McCartney died in 1966.

It is said that the former drummer of the Beatles, Ringo Starr, confessed in his interview that the rumors about the alleged death of Paul McCartney in 1966 were indeed true.

Adding that real McCartney died in a car crash, he was then replaced immediately by a man named William Shears Campbell, who was the winner of a McCartney look-alike contest.

Do not be deceived as this is a plain hoax.

Ringgo Starr did not give an exclusive interview to the Hollywood Inquirer in his luxurious Californian residence. It has disclaimer that says, “WNDR assumes however all responsibility for the satirical nature of its articles and for the fictional nature of their content. All characters appearing in the articles in this website – even those based on real people – are entirely fictional and any resemblance between them and any persons, living, dead, or undead is purely a miracle.”

Yet we cannot get without listing down the conspiracy theories which tried to prove Paul was a dead man.

1.) Abbey Road album cover

In an alleged interview, Ringo did mention they gave subtle clues to relieve consciousness about the great deception. One notable clue was the cover of the Abbey Road album. It symbolizes a funeral procession.

John Lennon, dressed in white, symbolizes the clergyman. Ringo Starr, dressed in black, symbolizes the undertaker. George Harrison, in denim jeans and shirt, symbolizes the gravedigger and McCartney, barefoot and out of step with other members of the band, symbolizes the corpse.

2.) Sgt. Pepper’s album cover

There was an arrangement of flowers in a bass-guitar shape, which we all now such wreath is a sign of giving respect and remembrance for a person who has died.

3.) Several songs pertaining to Paul’s death

Wide messages about McCartney’s death could be found among the lyrics and recordings of the Beatles.

4.) 28IF

The plate number on the Volkswagen Beetle reads “LMW 28IF”.

Theorists claim Paul would have been 28 years old at the time of the Abbey Road release if he had still been alive. Logical explanation says Paul was actually 27 at the time the album was released.

5.) Billy Shears

In Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club album, Beatles had officially formed a new band featuring a fictional member named Billy Shears, which happened to be the name of Paul’s replacement.
