New book about the dead Paul and the replacement Faul.
Dr. Nick Kollerstroms book is called The Life and Death of Paul McCartney.

Interview with the author on Youtube:

I would posit that this is a spoof, or an ineptly fabricated con-trick. I do not believe that fellow is a Bona Fide professor of McCartnelogical studies, as he claims.

He seems to be legit. But controversial. Not sure how real his Dr. is anymore. He has published holocaust denier articles and stuff.

Nicholas Kollerstrom (born 13 December 1946) is an English writer and historian of science. Formerly an honorary research fellow at University College London (UCL) and BBC lunar gardening correspondent, he is the author of several books, including Gardening and Planting by the Moon (an annual series beginning in 1980), Newton's Forgotten Lunar Theory (2000), Crop Circles (2002), and Terror on the Tube (2009). He has also written entries for the Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers.

Kollerstrom has been involved in a variety of issues as a political activist. In 1986 he co-founded the Belgrano Action Group after the sinking of the ARA General Belgrano by the Royal Navy during the Falklands War, and in 2007 argued that the 7 July 2005 London bombings had not been carried out by the men accused of them. UCL withdrew his fellowship in 2008 after he posted material about the Auschwitz concentration camp on websites known for Holocaust denial.[1]

Ah right, didn't think to look him up, duh.

I reckon being the BBC's erstwhile 'lunar gardening correspondent' is rather cool.

No doubt! His list of publications covers some quite Fortean topics, including the Antikythera Mechanism and crop circles...

Make of this what you will .. a drunkard that happens to look exactly like Macca finally caught out at work for drinking on duty ? .. or the real Macca moving on because of over exposure ? .. or both ? (probably the former)

FORMER BEATLE RINGO STARR CLAIMS THE “REAL” PAUL MCCARTNEY DIED IN 1966 AND WAS REPLACED BY LOOK-ALIKE

Beverly Hills| The former drummer of the Beatles, Ringo Starr, surprised the world this morning during an interview in his luxurious Californian residence, when he admitted that the 45-year old rumors about the alleged death of Paul McCartney in 1966 were actually true.
In an exclusive interview with the Hollywood Inquirer, Mr. Starr explained that the “real” Paul McCartney had died in a car crash on November 9 1966, after an argument during a Beatles’ recording session. To spare the public from grief, the Beatles replaced him with a man named William Shears Campbell, who was the winner of a McCartney look-alike contest and who happened to have the same kind of jovial personality as Paul.

“When Paul died, we all panicked!” claims Ringo, obviously very emotional. “We didn’t know what to do, and Brian Epstein, our manager, suggested that we hire Billy Shears as a temporary solution. It was supposed to last only a week or two, but time went by and nobody seemed to notice, so we kept playing along. Billy turned out to be a pretty good musician and he was able to perform almost better than Paul. The only problem was that he couldn’t get along with John, at all.”

William Shears Campbell, better known as Billy Shears, does indeed “disappear ” from records in 1966 and no traces of him can be found after Paul’s alleged death.


These pictures from 1966 show the great resemblance between Paul McCartney on the left, and William Shears Campbell on the right, at the time of McCartney’s alleged death.

Mr. Starr alleges that the group did send out a lot of hidden messages through the years to prepare the population for the truth.

He notably says that the entire Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album was awash with Paul-is-dead clues: the Beatles had indeed officially formed a “new” band featuring a “fictional” member named Billy Shears, which happened to be the actual name of Paul’s replacement.

“We felt guilty about the deception” added Ringo Starr. “We wanted to tell the world the truth, but we were afraid of the reactions it would provoke. We thought the whole planet was going to hate us for all the lies we had told, so we kept lying but sending subtle clues to relieve our cousciousness. When the first rumors finally began about the whole thing, we felt very nervous and started fighting a lot with each other. At some point, it was too much for John and he decided to leave the band.”

Ringo Starr claims that he finally decided to tell the truth, because he was afraid that it was going to die with him. At age 74, he is the only other surviving member of the famous band besides Paul McCartney, and he was afraid the deception would never be revealed.

The rumors of Paul’s death began more than 45 years ago, but had always been dismissed as nonsense by the band and its entourage. In September 1969, American college students published a series of articles in which they claimed that clues to McCartney’s death could be found among the lyrics and artwork of the Beatles’ recordings. Clue-hunting rapidly proved infectious, and within a few weeks, it had become an international phenomenon. Rumours only declined after a contemporary interview with McCartney was published in Life magazine in November 1969.

Neither Paul McCartney nor anyone from his entourage have commented Ringo Starr’s declaration yet, but the interview has already provoked a lot of reactions around the world. Journalists and paparazzis from around the world have surrounded the residence of the musician only minutes after the interview was broadcasted and are awaiting for the star to comment the allegations.

The British MI5 also announced an investigation to determine if an impostor could have indeed posed for 48 years as the Member of the Order of the British Empire, Sir James Paul McCartney, during official ceremonies involving Queen Elizabeth II.

I remember a similar story concerning Nikki Sixx from the band Motley Crue. This was sometime in the mid-eighties and I would probably have read it in Kerrang!
Apparently, the real Nikki Sixx was badly injured in an accident or suffered an overdose and wasn't available for a tour so a lookalike replacement was drafted in.
I think one of the pieces of evidence was a photo of the band in the shower and whether or not the real Nikki Sixx had an inward or outward facing belly button.

I remember it too. The guy was called Matthew Trippe and apparently wrote most of their best album Shout At The Devil. He originally titled it Shout WITH The Devil as he was into the LHP and a member of the Temple of Set but the record label made them change it. Now I actually know someone who was in the Temple of Set back then (still is) and he met Matthew Trippe - he says the guy was totally believable and acted like he really was in Motley Crue so he's never been sure one way or another. It's a funny thing too that when the real Sixx came back the Satanic imagery was dropped and they never wrote another song as good as the ones when he'd apparently been in the band...

Trippe is dead now and the story faded away but there's still stuff on the internet about it if you dig deep enough. I won't link anything here as I have a feeling Crue's lawyers got involved.

There's a photo of one Nikki in the shower and he has a weird belly button that kinda stretches to the left quite noticeably, then another photo of a supposedly different Nikki with a perfectly round navel. It IS pretty odd.
I actually have the whole article scanned. Had the original Kerrang but when I left home as a teenager my mum threw all that stuff in the bin!

The first two Crue albums are quite good as I remember. Lot's of NWOBHM influences.
