    Hey folks, sorry I missed the last half of the thread yesterday; it seems I was challenged to debunk the “Paul is dead” thing. Hah, yeah, I remember all that from the late ’60’s when it came out; I just didn’t realize people still believe that.
    So, Paul died in ’66, and they replaced him with a look-alike. They stopped touring because they didn’t want people to realize Paul had been replaced. What about his dad, Jim…he didn’t realize it? How about his younger brother, Mike..he didn’t realize it either? Maybe Mike just agreed to serve as best man when an imposter posing as his brother married Linda Eastman?
    The whole thing was a publicity stunt dreamed up by manager, Brian Epstein….sorry.

      I figured you say something like that after not looking at any of the evidence, I did challenge you to debunk it, not give your opinion. If you can put you opinion aside and take some time to look at all the evidence you cannot debunk it. Here for instance is Paul talking about when he joined the band when in fact he was one of the founders. https://youtu.be/bh8Xo84sHxU?t=2140

      When did you get in this, 4ever? Now I am confused.
      Anyway, I’ve got to leave again; but, you want me to believe they found a Paul look-alike, that also sang like Paul, played like Paul, wrote songs like Paul, played multiple instruments like Paul, and oh yeah was left handed like Paul and played a right hand guitar upside down like…Paul and Jimi Hendrix.
      Ha ha ha ha ha. Okay, have a good day.

      We are the same as Paul is Billy Shears and I could sit with you and answer every objection you could throw at me. If you look at the pictures of Paul over the years you have to be blind no to see the difference, Billy had to learn to play left handed, he was known as the man of a 1000 voices, there were voice analysis done and the voices did not match.

      Billy Shears has had many surgeries to make him look more like Paul, but like I said all these questions are answered in the book. Here’s a question. Why are there multiple videos with Paul being called William and Billy if his name is Paul?



    • J-Dub421
      10:24 am June 7, 2019 Permalink

      What’s the point of faking a new Paul McCartney? Who benefits? Why go to the expense of all the surgeries etc.? People die all the time, they would just replace him. If the Beatles replaced him, why didn’t Queen fake a new Freddie Mercury? Why isn’t there a new fake Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison?



    • 4everUKblue
      10:30 am June 7, 2019 Permalink

      The Beatles were a huge source of revenue, Paul was the most popular Beatle, cute Beatle, at that time they panicked and were afraid the whole thing would fall apart, the Beatles were by far the biggest thing ever. Many people benefited from the fake Paul and keeping the Beatles going and they did replace Paul with Billy Shepherd. None of the other artists you mention ever reached the level the Beatles and Paul did, not even close.



    • 4everUKblue

      Funny, look I get it, people just want to believe everything they’ve always been told, it’s too much to handle learning that maybe everything you’ve always known may not be true, it’s much easier to just believe the mainstream media. Why would they lie, right? Why would any govt lie? If only we lived in that world.

      I do get that CG, there was a lot of back masking. Look the faces don’t match, Paul grew several inches in a few months in 66′, one has attached earlobes, the other doesn’t, Paul’s face is much rounder than Faul’s, Paul had brown eyes that magically turned green. And these interviews are clearly two different people. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5WwaHyR-w8&frags=pl%2Cwn

      4ever/Iam, you can also flip that around and say it is easy to believe every conspiracy theory that comes along. I mean, who can you really believe these days? How do you know, with absolute certainty, that the “non-mainstream media” is not lying also? I am not saying that to provoke anyone, because I think there is plenty of bullfeces being slung from both directions.

      So, there was a book about Paul being replaced and that makes it so.

      How about this … JFK was not killed in Dallas. It was a double. Jackie was going to leave him and that just wasn’t done. So, JFK’s death was faked so he and Marilyn could sneak off together and live a quiet life on a tropical island away from everyone. I’ll write the book so 4everUKblue will know it’s true.

      Don’t read the book, there’s plenty of evidence right in your face without reading anything, all you have to do is open your eyes and your mind. A closed mind will be stuck forever believing everything on the 6 o’clock news. Do some research then get back to me Rick, maybe you can learn something.

      4ever, you do understand how saying what you are saying can rub people the wrong way, right? At times someone could read it and think that you are saying that they are naive, stupid, and unsophisticated for believing anything the “mainstream media” is saying. I don’t think you mean it that way, but written words can convey unintended feelings.

      It’s okay if you don’t convince anyone, it still makes for a fun conversation.

    • Good idea RCF! I need to buy a copy of that song.

      For those who don’t know what I’m referring to, when the Beatles did the song “Revolution #9”, there was a rumor that Paul was dead because if you play the record backwards (in the part where an older sounding Englishman is repeating “Number 9! Number 9! Number 9!), it sounds like “Turn me on dead man, Turn me on dead man!”



    • 4everUKblue
      11:07 am June 7, 2019 Permalink

      Would’ve been a cooler story if they said Paul died, then a few days later produced the lookalike and said he was resurrected. If only they would’ve had a replacement Tupac ready back in Sept of 96 it would’ve saved me a lot of mourning.



    • 4everUKblue
      11:20 am June 7, 2019 Permalink

      Also Realme, I can’t convince anyone, I was only trying to get people to take hard look at it. If they can replace a Beatle right in front of us they can do much more. For instance, look Saddam on trial and compare his teeth to the Saddam earlier, he had perfect teeth, unlike the man on trial. It is know he had several body doubles.

      Iam/4ever, since we are talking about conspiracies here, I am going to bring up perhaps the biggest conspiracy in our country – that is the fact that pretty much ALL of our politicians in BOTH parties are unabashedly for sale to the highest bidder. They aren’t even ashamed of it anymore! A lot of them will openly admit to it. If there is ANYTHING that you should spend your energy and free time fighting, it is this. You brought up the “Georgia Stonehenge” or whatever, and how there is a group of wealthy people who are conspiring to eliminate the rest of us. Well, our government is already doing this. Not to move too much in a political direction, but wouldn’t the current POTUS be a card-carrying member of such an organization? Wouldn’t pretty much all the candidates?

      Yep RCF, you are right. Having two parties gives the illusion that we have a choice. Politics is like pro wrestling, they are enemies in the ring but outside they train and travel together. The United States is a corporation not a government, different from The United States of America.

      You’re also right that it’s not that important whether or not Paul was replaced. If you want to do a deep dive into something that does matter, look deep into 9/11. Many people still believe the official story.

      It seems like over the past year or so there have been so many people standing on street corners with signs. It’s almost like they are working shifts over by my office. I almost expect to see the dudes walking up to a punch clock mounted on the phone pole. I really want to help if they really need it, but IMO it can be dangerous to have someone walking into traffic in a busy intersection, and it can also hold up traffic.



    • Realme

      That’s exactly what they’re doing. Show up at the right time and you’ll see the shift change. In Lexington it got so bad a couple years ago, they made stepping into the street and approaching a car illegal, since they got shot down by the courts or trying to make panhandling illegal. Here they have been trying to make the point that we have food, shelter and other basic needs available for anyone who needs it. 3 meals a day 365 days a year. I used to walk around with a list in my pocket of all the places they could go for food, shelter, clothing, medical care, etc. When they would ask me for money, I would try to give them the list. It was accepted one time. By a guy who asked me for money again the very next day.

      I used to work in Atlanta. One evening as I was walking to my car, a guy came up to me and ask for money to get oil for his car. I figured it was a lie, but it was original and I gave him a couple of bucks. A week later the same guy came up to me with the exact same story. I told him that he’d already hit me up with that story a week before.

      It’s really sad that some people who really don’t need the help will try to take advantage of the charity of others. IMO, there is a very warm place down yonder reserved for people like that. I used to take the mindset that if anyone would reduce themselves to that level, they probably need that dollar more than me. But you just can’t keep up with it now even if you wanted to. If I had tons of time, I would just buy them something to eat off the MdD’s dollar menu and hand that to them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Realme, I’ve seen chain store popping up called “Dirt Cheap”. It’s yet another one of those close out stores, but it’s a total dump compared to Big Lots. In fact, our Goodwill and Salvation Army stores are better than that dump.

    Listening to the podcast; only 4 or 5 min in but Iโ€™m already liking Sam Pโ€™ovich better than PMT. glad SP made the trip to lex and is a)enjoying himself and b)wants to be here!

      My conspiracy theory on why PMT won the past two years of the best sub host would be their fan base sneaked in and voted on KSR site a lot so I wonโ€™t be surprised if they win again this year (due to their huge fan base).
      Praying Matt wakes up and stop inviting them again ?
