There is a pretty big clue proving that it's just a joke...
On the Abbey Road album cover, there is a Volkswagen Beatle on the left side of the road. If you look closely you'll see the license plate reads "28 IF". Paul was 28 at that time. The "IF" implies that if he weren't dead, he would be 28. Much later, after the seperation of the Beatles, Paul's album "Paul is Live" features the same famous Abbey Road scene. If you read the license plate on the Volkswagen Beatles this time, it says "51 IS". Paul was 51 at the release of the album. The license plate and the title implies that Paul is saying he is not dead, but it was a stupid joke.

Thought you guys might get a laugh from this!  My other passion in life is St.Kilda Australian Football Club, of which i frequent this fan forum.

Someone wondered whether one of our star players had had cosmetic surgery done - anyway, there is a few Beatle and music fans on this site and it inevitably led to joking about Paul Is Dead, etc.

Read the whole thread and you should get a laugh!!

Listening to a podcast that was being recorded as the recent Bon Jovi death hoax started making the rounds on the internet.

One of the hosts suggested that crap like that would never have flown in the days before the internet.  No sooner did that suggestion come out of his mouth did one of his co-hosts say "Paul is Dead rumors?

Thought that was kinda funny.  BUT, imagine if the internet was around that fateful night when that radio DJ was just reading off that for fun article.

The rumor started about a month prior to that radio show when articles began appearing in college newspapers.  Even with no internet, the rumor spread quickly.

That was my first thought when I heard the Bon Jovi rumor. Hmm...maybe that's really Fon standing in front of the tree in that picture.  ;)

Strangely, I first heard the rumor as early as the summer of 1968, before the Holy Grail of clues, better known as the "White Album", was released. At that time, there were precious few clues, and the rumor was (believe it or not) that Paul intended to kill himself, live on TV, on the "Ed Sullivan Show", to protest the Vietnam War. No, seriously.

It sounded like so much BS to me, I didn't even bother to do anything but laugh. I heard it from some students that attended the University of Wisconsin. Then, when the big story broke in 1969, I thought to myself, "Where have I heard this crap before?"

It's the very last comment that I agree with the most!

Here's a question for everyone - has a conspiracy theory ever been proved to be correct? I can't think of one. Maybe Bay of Pigs?

Personally, I'm hoping someone can prove the "John Is Alive" theory, myself.

I also heard a guy give a lecture on it once and he said toward the end of 'Gently Weeps' that George is singing 'Paul Paul'.

There was also the deal with their name being a phone number. The first three letters like they're spelled out on Magical Mystery Tour are 834, which is also the time on the board in the MMT booklet behind John the mustachioed ticket man. Supposedly someone called the number and there was a message saying "You're getting closer".

The lecturer knows his stuff. If you isolate George's vocal, it sounds like, "Oh, Paul", several times, sung in a mournful tone. Then, the ghost of Macca chimes in with "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah..."

As for the MMT booklet, you have to hold it up to a mirror to clearly see the number.

Not that I believe any of it, just wanted to clarify the rumor.

Okay, here's another clue for you all: Paul's death had to have taken place before July 20, 1968. Why? This was the date when Paul's engagement with Jane Asher was ended. The Beatles were concerned that if William Campbell were to make love with Jane, she would know it wasn't the real Paul. After all, everybody knows that Paul was quite well-endowed from the clue in "Mr. Kite"...you know, Henry the Horse. And you all thought the word, "waltz", referred to a dance.

Perhaps the best take on the "Paul Is Dead" hoax was by George Carlin: "If you play the new Beatles record backwards, it will screw up your needle."

I haven't gone through the whole thread but, at the risk of possibly repeating a post I think one of the most important clues for a hoax is the banquet scene in the MMT booklet. If you don't know about it try this. Get some freinds (at least one) and open the booklet to the baquet scene. Have someone hold the open page against the wall with the mans beret at the top. Eveyone else stand back 10-15 feet and see what you get. Note that the scene was not in the movie so it was deliberatly put there with someones approval. Fun stuff but I say a hoax!
You can enjoy this more if you get a few beers going and listen to the album while doing this!

Far out!

You wanna know who really started the rumor?  It was these girls singing "We Love You Beatles" outside the Plaza Hotel in February 1964...
