PAUL IS DEAD?
Since 1969, rumors started that Paul McCartney died in a car accident
on a Wednesday morning. He supposedly died from head injuries. He was said
to be replaced in 1966, by a Paul lookalike, William Campbell. It is also
said the Beatles had been planting clues in the lyrics of songs and on album
covers to let people know about it.
THE WHITE ALBUM
On the song, Revolution 9, at the beginning of the song, repeated
over and over, is the phrase number 9 in a formal British voice. When played
backwards, it sounds like,"Turn me on dead man." repeated over and
On the song "I'm so Tired," there is mumbling sounding like John
and Yoko right after the ending of the song. When played backwards, you can
hear John saying, "Paul is a dead man. Miss him. Miss him. MISS
In Blackbird, a song sung by Paul, "Blackbird singing in the dead
of night," mentions death.
Also on the White Album, the song "Glass Onion" the lyrics are
"Looking through a glass onion." A glass onion refers to a coffin with a
In the song, "Don't Pass Me By," the lyrics are "You were in a
crash..you lost your hair" This is in reference to Paul's car accident and
There are four separate pictures of the Beatles on this cover.
Paul has a scar on his lip Could it be that these scars are from William
Campbell's plastic surgery?
THE REVOLVER ALBUM
In the song, "Taxman," it says "If you drive in a car, Paul" which
refers to the car accident.
Also in that song, a verse goes, " If you get too cold, Paul"
which maybe refers to how bodies get cold after they die.
MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR
On the cover of this album, Paul is dressed like a Walrus, which
is known as the symbol of death.
If you look inside the cover, there is evidence that Paul no longer
existed. In one picture he is wearing a hat covering his face, like he is
In another picture, on Ringo's drum, it says, "Love the 3 Beatles"
meaning there were only three remaining Beatles.
On the back cover, if you turn it sideways, the people spell out
RIP, meaning Rest In Peace.
At the end of "I am the Walrus" the lyrics say, "bury me, bury
me, bury my body" then "Paul's untimely death."
In "Strawberry Fields Forever," when it fades back, you hear John
say, "I buried Paul."
In "All You Need Is Love," John Lennon sings, "Yes, he is dead...we
love you, yeah yeah yeah."
If you look at the "T" in Beatles on the cover, there is a statue
of a God, known as the Destroyer. It points to Paul.
The three Beatles are facing sideways on the cover, except Paul,
who is facing forward. John, George, and Ringo look three-dimensional while
Paul looks like a cardboard cutout.
In "A Day In the Life", it says "he blew his mind out in a car,
he didn't notice that the light had changed." refers to the car
The inside cover and lyrics lead us to believe he is
Inside the album, some photos reveal that Paul is wearing a patch
on his shoulder that reads "OPD", which in Britain means Officially Pronounced
On the back cover (record version only), George is pointing at
the line "wednesday morning at 5 o'clock"....the time the car crash
On the album cover, the dirt where the flowers spell out Beatles
is about the size of a coffin.
Right below the coffin, yellow flowers are in arranged in the
shape of a bass guitar. If you notice, there are three black twigs on top
of them possibly suggesting three mourning Beatles. Look at the flowers long
enough, and with a little imagination, seem to spell out the word
Paul is the only one holding a black instument. And we all know
black is associated with death.
Again, we see a reoccurance of "3 Beatles". Just look at the red
flowers to the left of the word BEATLES.
If you take the top half of the words "Lonely Hearts" and mirrorized
it, it says "1 ONE 1 X HE^DIE". The "1 ONE 1" part is the three beatles,
and the X is Paul. The arrow between the words "HE DIE" is pointing directly
up at Paul!
The cover of this album gives clues, such as the procession in
the street. John represents the Preacher, Ringo represents the Pallbearer,
and George represents the Gravedigger. Paul has no shoes on, which symbolizes
death in the mafia, and his eyes are closed. This could mean a
Also on the cover, Paul is smoking a cigarette, but he is using
his right hand. We all know Paul is left-handed. Could it be William
On the car's license plate, it says "LMW" which could mean "Linda
Another noticeable vehicle is the ambulance on the cover that
is parked on the right side of the street.
In the song, "Come Together" it says "Come Together right now
over me," This could mean Paul's grave. Another clue is the line, "One and
one and one is three", meaning the three remaining
In "She Came Through The Bathroom Window," which the lyrics go
"So I quit the police department and got myself a steady job." William Campbell
was a police officer.
On the back of the album cover, it shows a series of dots on the
wall to the left of the word "Beatles" If you connect them, it looks like
the number 3. The "S" in the band's name has a crack in it, maybe indicating
a mistake in the band. A skull of shadow and light seems to appear to the
right of the word.
In the movie during the video for "Your Mother Should Know" the
Beatles are wearing white tuxedos with a rose on each one. Notice Paul is
the only one wearing a black one.
As seen on the Abbey Road cover, in the "I Am the Walrus" video,
Paul is barefoot.
A scene in the movie, Paul is dressed in a military uniform. He
is sitting behind a sign that says "I Was." Two British flags are above him
crossed like in a military funeral.
A hand over someone's head is lead to mean death. We see done
to Paul three times on the cover of Sgt. Pepper, Yellow Submarine, and the
Magical Mystery tour.
In their later albums, "The Beatles" become known as "Beatles,"
indicating the band does not have its original formation - maybe also meaning
not the original members.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
Look at the clues and decide for yourself. As for me, I think this
is just a rumor and the clues are a coincidence.
