On This Day in 1969 a bunch of college students began publishing articles claiming that there were were direct clues to Paul McCartney’s death in a car accident in 1966… AND that a guy named Billy Shears (real name William Campbell) a look & sound alike had replaced Paul! The albums “Abbey Road”, “Magical Mystery Tour”, Sgt. Peppers” & the “White Album” are PACKED with both visual and audio clues pointing to the fact/rumor/hoax…
Was it The Beatles behind this? The record label? a massive coincidence?
I remember hearing a radio special that included all the backwards recordings, album cover clues, lyrics & everything, and damn if I didn’t believe it when it was over!!
Whatever or whoever was behind it… it sold a HELL of a lot of Beatles records!
