So far as I can tell, this is what differentiates a fun conspiracy theory from an annoying one: A fun conspiracy theory puts far too serious a spin on an unserious issue, while an annoying one maps too unserious a worldview over a serious one.

The forensic proof is overwhelming that the current "Paul McCartney" is not the original. Too many physical differences to deny that he is a different man. The longer face, size of skull, different jawline, eye color, height, foot size. Vocal wise, it is a passable imposter, but is NOT the real Paul McCartney. Anyway, why would the Beatles play such a cruel "hoax" on their fans? It's not like they needed the publicity. All the undeniable, overwhelming evidence and
you idiots are still denying the obvious. The REAL Paul McCartney has been dead for 46 years. Again, look at the vastly different shape of the faces and
skull size. Duh?
I agree. Even the ears changed from 1966 to 1967. Not only did his face grow longer and narrower, but he grew at least 2 or3 inches taller than John. LOL!!!! Wow, I wonder how that happened? For me though, the main difference was the chin. The round shaped chin of
Paul McCartney in 1966 suddenly became a long, pointy, crooked chin in 1967. I will give his imposter William Shears Campbell credit, he is quite talented, especially noticeable when listening to songs like Maybe I'm Amazed and Let it Be. He's no doubt a damn good musician in his own right
. He's just not Paul. Ringo Starr even said that he was the only remaining Beatle after George Harrison died.

McCartney is alive Deadhead.Enquirer magazine never told us that Sir Paul used to roll up a big doobie and listen to Jerry Garcia and the Greatful Dead.
McCartney WAS alive until November 1966 when he died in a car crash. He hadn't noticed that the lights had changed. Remember? So let me introduce to you, the one and only Billy Shears. Remember?

He didn't grow two inches taller and his face features only changed when he grew a beard about the time of Let it be.It was all a silly joke get over it.
He only had a beard for a brief period during the Let it Be era. I'm talking about how noticeably longer and narrower his face was while he was CLEAN SHAVEN!!!! But I think you already knew that, didn't you? I suppose you also conveniently failed to notice the different ears, different nose, different jawline, substantial increase in height, noticeably different foot size, the long crooked chin that the real Paul McCartney NEVER HAD, how his eyes changed from BROWN TO GREEN between 1966 and 1967. The distance between the bottom of his nose and his upper lip change. You probably think all that was a silly joke too, right? BTW, the excuse you made about the beard was the lamest one I've ever heard. That was like saying that I'm right but you just couldn't admit. Don't look now, but your tail is showing.

How could Billy Shears aka William Campbell be a fictional character when it is a known fact that he was BORN November 15, 1943? If you are not familiar with who William Campbell is, then why are you even on this thread? That's who replaced the original Paul. Why else would George Harrison menacingly refer to Paul as "Beatles Bill" after November 1966? So far, the only thing you've done is deny the obvious.

OK, I would like to give my oppinion on the Paul is dead conspiracy. It was all a hoax the Beatles perpetrated themselves. Listen to their early interviews, the Beatles had a sense of humor, & they played a joke on their fans. Maybe they could find someone who looked like him, but it would be impossible to find someone who sounded like him, & had the same musicianship & songwriting talent. The person who wrote Michelle & Yesterday is the same person who wrote Let It Be & Maybe Im Amazed.

Why not that a guy from Michigan started it all? Even Mills told a reporter that she knew things that were "beyond belief" and the conspiracy theorists connected that to the hoax. And we will never know, won't we? If this is a way to kill your day, enjoy it at least! Don't expect all the world to believe it, though.

Both Paul McCartney and William Campbell aka Faul were and are amazing musicians. Nobody but Campbell could have step in on such short notice and fooled the world like he did making virtually everyone believe he was the real Paul, so hats off to him. I have immense respect for both of them as incredible geniuses. I know that hindsight is 20/20 and it's so easy to say "what if" but if only Paul hadn't given that girl a ride in 1966 that jumped on him while he was driving, causing him to wreck his Aston Martin, he would probably still be here today.

Well, whether Paul is dead or not, something is certainly fishy. I looked on some various sites and saw some pictures comparing Paul to the replacement, aka Faul. Some things are unexplainable, for instance his head shape changed and he suddenly grew taller than before. But if Paul really did die, I find it hard to believe that everyone could just cover up his death like nothing happened. Part of me believes he is dead and another part believes he is alive.

Logically thinking, it was very hard if not impossible for the others to find in such a little time a guy as talented as Paul. Not just a look alike. Some would say:they found a more talented one. Nay...We would have heard of "William Campbell" if he had been so talented. Something, somewhere, sometime...But, no. We do know Paul McCartney.

I agree. The proof is overwhelming for those who will simply look objectively at all of the evidence presented. Many music industry insiders have known this for years even before any forensic evidence was presented. I remember watching a clip just the other day of the 1990 Grammys where Faul received a lifetime achievement award presented by Meryl Streep. Faul looked nervous as a cat onstage while the presentation was being made because he KNEW that there were a considerable number of artists in the audience that were fully aware that he was not Paul.
