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.

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.

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.

Needle Time: Hamish Stuart
A member of Scottish funk outfit the Average White Band, he talked of his heydays with the band, and his later projects, which included playing on Macca's late 80s album "Flowers in the Dirt", and also 2 spells as a member of Ringo Starr's All-Star Band, as well as his current band, 360 (3 blokes in their 60s...). He spoke well of Macca and Ringo for their musicality.

Carpool Karaoke: Paul McCartney
He's got a new album coming soon, so he buttered James Corden up by going with him to Liverpool, visiting Penny Lane and other local spots vaguely linked to the Beatles story, before a staged pub performance where they ran through a few numbers like Love Me Do and Hey Jude. Corden got weepy when discussing Let It Be. Macca came out of it looking well.

Yesterday was another big promo day, as he put on a special less-than-secret gig back at the famous Cavern Club for his first trip there in 19 years. He did quite a lengthy set too, to help plug his forthcoming Egypt Station album.

Here's the single:

Loop: Where it all Began
Among the features was a piece on a photographic exhibition of Linda McCartney's, at Kelvingrove Museum. She had access to the New York scene, and had a proper career of sorts before she even met Paul. Her marriage enabled her access to people and stars in private repose too; so she got photos of the Beatles, of Jimi Hendrix, and private works of her family at play. Good to know she gets some due.

His lost tour bus from the Wings days has been returned from Spain:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-49962615
Almost 50 years ago, Sir Paul McCartney and his band Wings decided to decorate an open-top bus in psychedelic colours to take them on tour across Europe.
He converted the double-decker for his post-Beatles band and their families, with the seats on the upper deck replaced by mattresses and bean bags.
Now, after being found in Spain, the Wings Over Europe bus is back in the UK and is to be sold at auction.
Sir Paul made an appeal for the double-decker's whereabouts in 2017.

It is being sold by Omega Auctions in Merseyside on Tuesday with an estimated value of £15,000-£25,000.
The bus originally served local routes in Essex and Norfolk in the 1950s and 60s before being bought by McCartney, who didn't fancy being cooped up in a normal bus during the summer tour in 1972.
That Tuesday would presumably have been this, the 8th.

Things I Couldn't Tell My Mother, by Sue Johnston
Scouse actress was one of the many who went to the Cavern Club, and stepped out for a while with Paul, to the point where her family referred to him as "the dirty Beatle". But she soon moved on to someone else.

Arena: Desert Island Discs
This 1982 tribute marked the radio show's 40th anniversary. Paul was a guest, and he chose neither his own records or any by the Beatles - but he did pick Beautiful Boy by John. He spoke of times when cavern fans requested songs.
