Thanks for the friendly welcomes.  It's fun to actually post on this site after enjoying it as a lurker for so long.

I guess my previous post got me in a mood to think more about this whole rumor thing.  (And I agree, it probably is all in the mind.)  Has anyone who actually believes the rumor every addressed the following fairly basic questions? 



Hi Smithee.
I'm not sure what you're after here. Asking us why people believe the PID story is like asking the Pope why people believe in evolution.
In my experience folk who come here toutng this and the The FBI killed John thing are little more than slightly sad attention seekers who post  about  nothing else then disappear.
Present company excepted of course.

Hi Kevin,

Sorry, no harm intended.  Looking back through this thread, it seemed like there were posts from people who actually believe the rumors, and I thought if I was ever going to get some input from a believer this would be the place.  But if, as you say, they've all moved on (maybe they're busy tracking Paul to try to get DNA samples) then I guess I'll move on too.

This is a great forum though, so maybe I'll just try a different thread.

On the Sgt. Rutter album he was leaning in the exact position of a dying Yeti (from the Rutland Book of the Dead).

But the walrus thing all started here, Cor, in the 7 November 1969 issue of LIFE Magazine...







John Neary, the author of the article The Magical McCartney Mystery, mentioned that the black walrus was a folk symbol of death...





No one knows where he got that information.  The dying Yeti explanation makes a whole lot more sense to me.   ;D




I guess I didn't explain anything at all.

I don't suppose it's, "I was killed in a car crash."  Or "Hi, my name's Willy"? 

But seriously, I'm afraid I don't hear much that's intelligible.  The best I can come up with is something like "Shakin' in the band" or *something* "in the band."

Do other folks hear something I'm missing?  To be honest, I think a lot of the backward clues and aural clues in general are like Rorschach tests, where the brain is trying to create recognizable order or patterns from something indistinct.  Like finding animals or faces in clouds.  Having said that, I do agree that the "I was Willy Campbell" line in Gratitude is kind of creepy.

Listen to it a few more times, smithee, but don't concentrate too hard on it.  See if it becomes more intelligible that way.

Yes, the Gratitude backward bit was really creepy!

No no I like talking about this stuff. Just that it's going to be difficult to find anyone here able to explain the rationale of the PIDists

Don't say I didn't warn you.

It's the same with the hand above his hand. A so called symbol for the death. I don't know. Never heard of it.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks, I was afraid I screwed up with my very first post here.  Sort of like showing up at a party where you don't know anyone and right away spilling a drink on the host.

Anyway, just because I like stuff like this, I'm going to propose a new theory.  (And no, I don't seriously believe this either.  I'm just doing it to show how "clues" can be interpreted many ways.)  Here we go: 

Ringo is dead!

That's right, the clues were real, but we got the wrong guy.  What if it was Ringo who died in that car accident, not Paul?  Let's see...

Sergeant Pepper:  Yes, the cover is a grave site, but if you look at the wax figures of the "old" Beatles, Ringo is in front of the other three, not in line.  He certainly looks the saddest of the four, and Paul seems to have his hand on Ringo's shoulder, comforting him.  In the actual music, when the band sings, "So let me introduce to you the one and only Billy Shears," who then starts to sing?  Right, it's Ringo.  If they meant that Paul was Billy Shears, they would have gone into Fixing a Hole, not With a Little Help from My Friends.  And don't forget, a couple years later, in I'm the Greatest, Ringo sings explicitly, "Yes, my name is Billy Shears.  You know it has been for so many years."  Surely a confession.  Speaking of With a Little Help from My Friends, Ringo is the one who asks, "What would you do if I sang out of tune?"  Is he worried that he won't fit in as the new Ringo?  But no, he "gets by with a little help from my friends."  The other three are helping him with his impersonation.  All of the other lyric clues on Sgt. Pepper still stand:  "He blew his mind out in a car", etc.

The White Album:  It's Ringo who sings, "you were in a car crash, and you lost your hair."  Was he singing this to the "real" Ringo, the man he replaced?

Abbey Road:  Yes, the cover is a funeral procession, but at least in America (I don't know the traditions in England) the body of the person to be buried usually goes before the mourners, who follow behind.  Therefore, John is the minister/priest/whatever, poor Ringo is the corpse, to be buried in his best suit, Paul is a mourner (surely being barefoot must be a sign of mourning in some culture somewhere in the world) and George is still the gravedigger.

The Batman comic book, shown earlier in the thread, nearly gets it right, or was it planted to show the Beatles' real intent?  In the comic, the band member who's thought to be dead, confesses at the end that he's still alive; it's the others who were killed.  Maybe some of the "Paul" specific clues, like the black carnation in Magical Mystery Tour, were intended to focus our attention on the wrong guy, so we wouldn't look too closely at Faux Ringo.

The other clues about car crashes, death, three Beatles, etc. could simply be referring to the death of Ringo, not Paul.  In a way, this makes more sense than a fake Paul.  At least according to legend, Ringo got more fan mail than any of the others, so it would be important to keep his death a secret from the fans.  And it would certainly be easier to cover up his death than Paul's; you don't need to explain how this imposter could write songs as well as a Paul imposter, or sing as well.  Ringo didn't write many songs, and no one ever said he was a great singer.  Likeable, but not great.

I'm sure if I went through all the albums, studied the covers and played the songs backwards with this in mind, I could find more clues, but this is just off the top of my head.  I would have placed this post in the "Ringo is Dead" thread, but for some inexplicable reason that thread doesn't exist.  A cover-up?

Maybe John Neary made that up too.  Who knows?!

Ringo is dead!

...A cover-up? 


There's no cover-up.  Ringo is dead!  We've known that for a while.  And we know who replaced him all those years ago...

By god, I think you're onto something!  Maybe Ringo didn't die in a car accident.  Maybe *that* was just a cover story.  He quit to join the PLO.  *That's* why they needed to bring in an impostor.

Well, it looks like John Neary came up with this...
