And now with Fab: Paul McCartney and his family, from his brother to his children, refused to talk to you for this book. I think he is a very controlling person.
Email Copy Link Copied No band in the history of music has ever taken over the world and changed the landscape of the business quite like the Beatles did back in the s. Their initial foray into the homes of people worldwide came through pop music and some incredible covers, but by the time they disbanded, the band had touched down in an impressive number of different genres, and their exploration of new sounds and recording techniques laid the framework for modern bands.
With great amounts of fame comes great amounts of press coverage, and stories can often be blown out of proportion. Celebrity media coverage in our modern age is up-to-the-second, but back in the s, news wasn't as instant. This, in turn, made it easier for ridiculous urban legends to gain some traction and be taken seriously by those who are easily fooled.
One of the most famous urban legends in pop culture history remains the alleged death of Paul McCartney. According to conspiracy theorists, Paul McCartney died in a car accident inand was quickly replaced with a lookalike named Billy Shears.
This means that every song McCartney has written and performed since that night in has been nothing more than a ruse in what is one of the greatest cover-ups of all-time. These absurd facts have convinced people that Paul is dead.

It is amazing that after all of these decades people still believe that Paul McCartney was replaced with a lookalike. Abbey Road might very well be the most famous album cover of all-time, and the iconic shot of the band making their way across the street is alleged to provide all the clues you need.
A quick glance at the cover will reveal that each member of the band is dressed in drastically different outfits, and conspiracy theorists believe that this is not without reason.
Each band member is dressed the part of a funeral procession, and Paul, being barefoot and out of step with the rest of the band, is clearly the corpse. George is the gravedigger in jeans, John is the priest, and Ringo is the mourner.
Yes, people actually believe this.
While the circumstances do warrant a few raised eyebrows, this is nothing more than a picture of the boys crossing the road. But, conspiracy theorists cling to this album cover as the most definitive proof out there.Wild Life, the debut album by his then-new band Wings, and ’s Red Rose Speedway, credited to Paul McCartney and Wings, will be available via MPL/Capitol/UMe from 7 December.
