Very interesting read. I've never put much into these rumors, though now we have Ringo speaking out. Here is a fascinating article I came across and well worth the read. What are your thoughts on this?   PAUL MCCARTNEY DIED IN 1966 AND WAS REPLACED BY LOOK-ALIKE WOW REALLY ?

Very interesting watch here. It makes the evidence seem compelling. Each clip is about 10 minutes.

Don't worry, it's rubbish. Given the number of actual dead people to mourn in this day and age, the continuation of this nonsense is a pretty sick joke, really. Still, Ringo probably knew what value a worthless rag like the National Inquirer would make of it.

It's only interesting that this idea sprang up before Lennon died, although it makes a convenient fiction to invest "blame" on Paul. I mean, what could possibly be the point of keeping up the pretence after the band split? Rolling Eyes

I thought you would say something along those lines and, quite frankly, am glad you did Very Happy   Mind you, neither of us were here in 1966, though cannot fathom Paul being anyone but Paul. (Even if he has resorted to singing with the likes of KanYe)  Rolling Eyes

Well, I'm glad you're glad Laughing Nobody who likes the guy has ever thought this was true.

I'm happy with the thread, though, as I've toyed with having a thread for his solo (or at least post-Beatles) works for a while Wink Idea

Paul McCartney: Good Evening NYC
A concert to christen the newly-opened Citi Field Stadium, built on the old Shea Stadium, from 2009. He belted out the hits, as you'd expect, from all times of his career.

Paul McCartney: Live Kisses
Back up to date with this live gig (mostly) from Feb 9 this year (2012), as Macca performs most if not all of his covers album 'Kisses on the Bottom', with help from Diana Krall, Eric Clapton and Joe Walsh, and also praise from Stevie Wonder. Everyone involved seemed impressed with it.

Electric Proms '07: Paul McCartney
As you would expect, from the Roundhouse, London, the ever-reliable Macca belts them out for an hour, and the crowd goes home happy.

The Frost Interview: Paul McCartney
Such is the status of the man, he can even be bracketed as a super-guest with statesman and the like. Anyway, this was a generalised run-through, touching the usual bases, with the odd spike of interest (near the end, Frost showed Macca a clip from an interview they'd done almost 50 years earlier, in which Macca was teased to predict the band's future, and talked of meeting Frost in 2010, not so far out).

Wings Over The World
A jolly tour doc, mixing concert footage with vignettes of Macca life. One of the more surprising moments was seeing Denny Laine getting to sing 'Go Now'. The LA concert featured Mickey Dolenz, Elton John and Jack Nicholson in the crowd. A sign of the times.

Rockshow: Paul McCartney & Wings
From the Seattle Kingdome, 1976, in front of 67,000 fans. Pretty much what you'd expect. His encore was 'Hi Hi Hi', which wasn't a high note to end on.

Paul McCartney: In Concert
Chiefly to push his latest album, and remind people he's still alive, bothered, and responsible for some of the greatest pop music ever made. He did several numbers from 'New', a few from Wings, and predictably closed on 'Hey Jude'.

The South Bank Show Originals: Paul McCartney
A chance to reassess the 30+ years of documentaries with hindsight. As well as clips of Bragg talking to Macca in January 1978, the modern Bragg talked about it to the frail Clive James, who was respectful of the show, and Macca too. Some of the archive clips were a treat to see, although obviously only the cream would have been selected anyway.

The Art of McCartney
A back-slapping celebrity project with assorted talents covering Macca works, mostly Beatles ones. The talent ranged from Billy Joel and Barry Gibb, through Alice Cooper and Joe Elliott, to BB King and Smokey Robinson, and plenty more besides. Ralph Sall was the bod who put the thing together, and the results were a mixture, it's fair to say.

When his ex-wife gets going, he might wish he HAD been dead all these years:

Heather Mills claims kids know her more than Macca

Shocked
Heather Mills wrote:You know, I own the biggest vegan company in the world.
First I've heard of it. The range of vegetarian foods named after Paul's first wife Linda is pretty famous, though.

The Beatles' success 'couldn't happen again'

Paul McCartney has insisted modern day bands aren't capable of having the same success that The Beatles had.

Paul McCartney doesn't think any modern day bands can have the success that The Beatles had.

The 73-year-old singer has insisted the success of the 'Eleanor Rigby' band - made up of Paul, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison - was down to them writing their own material, and timing, but doesn't see it happening again with any of today's music.

Paul said: ''Let's not forget, those four boys were f***ing good. You name me another group who had what The Beatles had. We all played, which is pretty hard. You don't get a lot of that these days.

''We came at the right time. We wrote some pretty good stuff, our own material. We didn't have writers. Could that happen again? I don't know. I wish people well but I have a feeling it couldn't.''

Paul went on to talk about his feelings after his former bandmate John was murdered in 1980 by Mark Chapman in New York, and confessed it made the other Beatles feel like they couldn't compete with him, as it made him a ''martyr''.

Speaking to Esquire magazine, the 'Hey Jude' star said: ''When John got shot, aside from the pure horror of it, the lingering thing was, OK, well now John's a martyr. A JFK. So what happened was, I started to get frustrated because people started to say, 'Well, he was The Beatles.'

''And post-Beatles he did more great work, but he also did a lot of not-great work. Now the fact that he's now martyred has elevated him to a James Dean, and beyond.''

I'd think there have been, and will be, bands as multi-talented if not more so, but the circumstances probably will never be repeated. That Ed Sullivan show was such a unique moment that how could it be repeated?

FAB - An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney, by Howard Sounes (2011)
A pretty thorough and lengthy look at the ex-Beatle's highs and lows, which takes few prisoners. Paul might be a duff lyricist, but it was John was fell for Yoko and Allan Klein, George was bitter, Ringo was rubbish, Linda was as bad as Yoko, everyone hated Heather Mills, & so on. Though the first half deals pretty impressively with the Beatles work, it's the other half which shows interest, as he becomes not only richer, but a massive land-grabber. For everyone who claimed he was mean with money, there were as many who knew his generosity. Dylan turned him on to grass 50 years ago, and Paul was a pretty big fan ever since, and he got the arrest records to prove it. Some sections are more thorough than others (1 whole sentence on Live 8, for example), but all told, it was a fascinating read.

The Ronnie Wood Show: Paul McCartney
A full hour, rather than the usual half. There's a clear mutual respect, as you might hope as people from the same era who were in two of the biggest British bands of their day. They talk about Gene Vincent, Little Richard, the wordplay of Chuck Berry, Rod Stewart being keen on Sam Cooke and Otis Redding, Paul's vague rivalry with Brian Wilson, admiration for Fred Astaire's vocal style, how Buddy Holly inspired John Lennon in many ways.

MusiCares - Tribute to Paul McCartney
Their 2012 Person of the Year gets a tribute concert with Neil Young, Duane Eddy, Coldplay and James Taylor amongst those having a bash at his songs. Alicia Keys, for reasons best known to herself introduces "Blackbird" as a song she feels is about herself Shocked Maybe should have thought before she spoke. Paul did a good encore of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight. Generally, a good show.

Michael Jackson Songs Sold To Sony Trigger Paul McCartney Lawsuit

Many people think of Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney as being friends as well as music collaborators, but the truth is that the Beatles star has had a beef with MJ since the 1980s — and Paul is finally settling the score by filing a court paperwork with Sony and ATV in mind.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Paul McCartney has officially filed a court order against Sony/ATV for the rights to his songs with The Beatles following Michael Jackson’s $750 million sale to the company.

While it seems at first that Paul McCartney will be attempting to purchase his old songs from Michael Jackson’s collection that is now owned by Sony/ATV, this lawsuit hinges around copyright laws.

For this reason alone, Paul McCartney’s attempt to finally get his music back from Michael Jackson’s purchase could be one of the biggest celebrity lawsuits to watch in 2017.

Oddly, Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney were once very close friends. In 1983, Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney topped the charts with “Say, Say, Say,” and had several other collaborations, but this mood would soon sour.

In 1985, Michael Jackson got a chance to buy the rights to songs, according to Ultimate Classic Rock, and he immediately picked up about 200 songs by Paul McCartney from when he was with the Beatles including “Let It Be,” “Hey Jude,” and “Yesterday.”

The irony of the situation is that Michael Jackson got this business advice from Paul McCartney about how profitable owning the rights to songs can be. Regardless, when interviewed in October 2001, Paul McCartney said that, although he contacted Michael Jackson twice in writing, MJ refused to sell The Beatles songs back to their creators after they were purchased in 1985.

ABC quoted Paul McCartney talking about the situation in 2001, and he stated Michael Jackson, “won’t even answer my letters, so we haven’t talked and we don’t have that great a relationship.” In person, Michael Jackson told Paul McCartney that buying his songs and not giving them back was “just business.”

For this reason, Paul McCartney felt humiliated by Michael Jackson — especially when he had to pay MJ for performing Beatles songs. For instance, the licensing fee for a Paul McCartney song to play in a television show is as much as $250,000, according to Independent.

According to Billboard, Michael Jackson bought the 200-plus Beatles songs from ATV in 1985 for $47.5 million. At the time, Paul McCartney was dismayed because he also lost out on buying the rights to his own songs in 1969 when Northern Songs sold them to ATV.

Unfortunately, when Michael Jackson died in 2009, Paul McCartney fans were hoping that the rights to his songs would be in MJ’s will, but this did not come to fruition, according to Guardian.

Now, Paul McCartney is filing a lawsuit about those Michael Jackson songs sold to Sony/ATV in order to get ready for 2018. The reason Paul McCartney is focused on this particular year is because it is the 56-year copyright expiration for many of the songs McCartney wrote with The Beatles.

The copyright law in question that Paul McCartney hopes to use to his advantage is the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976. In the legal language of the law, it states that songwriters that wrote songs before 1978 can regain the rights to their songs after 56 years. For songwriters that published after 1978, that copyright expires after 35 years.

The tricky part with Paul McCartney’s lawsuit for the songs Michael Jackson owned is reclaiming ownership. For example, before the 56-year mark arrives, the original songwriter will need to file paperwork with the U.S. Copyright Office.

If deadlines are not met correctly, Paul McCartney will need to wait another five years before re-filing for the rights to his own music published between 1962 and 1964.

Sadly, legal woes may follow Paul McCartney after he resolves issues with Michael Jackson or Sony/ATV having legal control over his music catalog.

For example, Paul McCartney may have a potential spat with John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, about her 70-year copyright ownership deal with Sony/ATV for music Paul co-wrote with John, according to BBC.

Must have missed this previously. The usual form, but with some polite anecdotes about his writing Yesterday, Hey Jude, Fool on the Hill, Let It Be, and many others.

Neil McCormick's Needle Time: Youth
aka Martin Glover, whose initial burst of fame was as a member of Killing Joke. His open mind led him to work as a Producer with Pink Floyd, U2 and The Verve, and also collaborate with Paul McCartney on his project as The Fireman. He valued an anarcho-creative attitude.
