I came across this site and thought, in its day, it was a pretty weird and warped rumor. It has since been disproved, but it still makes for some nostalgic reading, and if you were too young to remember, this is a great introduction into just how popular the Beatles were.
The theme of this site is the rumored death of Paul McCartney in the late 1960s. At that time it was rumored that he was dead or disfigured in an automobile accident, and that the remaining Beatles were using their music to let their fans know what had happened. There was in-depth analysis of their lyrics, and their songs were being played backwards and forwards (and even sideways, I’m sure). It was great to see some of the theories that were generated at the time, such as the look-a-like contest that William Campbell won, and actually got his picture taken with the other three.
So give this site a read, and enjoy the clues and then dig out your old albums (or new CDs) and see just how crazy the ’60s could be. Warped rating on this site is 7.0.
