It seems like the more famous the person, the weirder the conspiracy theory... But would this bizarre conspiracy really be true? Today I'm going to talk about the conspiracy about the death of Paul McCartney, who was a member of one of the most famous bands in the world. Here I explain the whole "Paul is dead" theory...
According to the theory, Paul was killed in a terrible car accident on November 9, 1966. The rest of the band would have replaced Paul with a look a like, called Billy Shears. Although Paul himself claimed that this was absolutely not true and even thought it was amusing, big fans went looking for clues that the theory was true, and they found it...
Sargent peppers cover
The Front cover of 'Sargent peppers, Lonely Hearts band' would contain many of these clues. If you look at the cover it's a bit like a funeral. Some people stand in black suits, sadly looking at an open grave. In the grave, surrounded by yellow flowers, is a left-handed guitar, this would have belonged to Paul. So they look at an open grave with Paul's guitar in it.
Paul wears a blue suit with on his left arm a patch with ''OPD'' on it, which would mean ''Officially Pronounced Dead''. But according to others it would be a patch with ''OPP'', with the meaning ''Ontario Provincial Police''. There's also a hand hovering over Paul's head, this is a sign of death.
A bit strange is that Paul is the only one who is turned around on the backcover. George's hand points to a particular song; ''Wednesday morning at 5 o'clock''. This would refer to that this was the day and time Paul had the fatal accident. Each band member also makes a letter with their fingers: 'L', 'V', 'E'. Which letter is missing here? Just the ''O''. The 'O' is missing in the word 'Love', which means that something is wrong.
Clues in songs
For years, fans and conspiracy thinkers have been looking for more clues to prove the theory. For example, many albums and songs that were released were thoroughly reviewed and analyzed. The white Album of the band contains the song ''Revolution 9''. In the beginning of the song ''Number 9'' is repeated several times. When people started playing this piece backwards they heard the lyrics ''Turn me on, dead man''. There are a lot of videos about the backwards songs on the internet, so if you want to hear it for yourself, I would take a look!
When you play the lyrics backwards between the songs ''I'm so tired'' and 'Blackbird' you would be able to hear: "Paul is dead man, miss him, miss him..." This also comes from The white album.
Another very popular song is ''Strawberry fields forever''. If you play this backwards you can hear: ''I buried Paul''. Also the song ''Glass onion'' contains some clues, here John sings: ''Here is another clue for you all, the walrus was Paul''. The walrus referring to death.
Also the album of ''Abbey Road'' people looked for clues. Here too, many people think it symbolizes a funeral. John wears white clothes because he is the priest, Ringo wears black clothes because he is the undertaker, George wears blue clothes because he is the gravedigger and Paul wears black because it is the body. Paul is also the only one who crosses his right foot first and is the only one who walks barefoot.
Do you think this really proves that Paul is dead or do you think the band thought the conspiracy was so ridiculous that they went along with the conspiracy and put these clues on the cover on purpose? I'm curious...
