Alternative Conspiracy Theory: Ringo Is Dead

Rumors of Paul McCartney’s death began to circulate in 1969, a time when the strained relationships among the Beatles were becoming public knowledge. Written versions of this story first appeared in college newspapers in the fall of 1969, but the precise origin of the rumor is unknown. The story caught fire with the public when it was broadcast by a radio station in Detroit. Russell Gibb, a disc jockey for WKNR-FM, received a strange phone call from someone who identified himself only as Tom. The caller told Gibb that Paul McCartney had died in 1966 and was then replaced by a lookalike. The Beatles had subsequently left clues on their albums about this deception. The caller claimed that the cover photo of Abbey Road, the Beatles’ most recent release at the time, represented a funeral procession with John as the minister, Ringo the undertaker, Paul the corpse, and George the gravedigger. Other Beatles album covers also contained clues, the caller claimed, and a few Beatles songs contained clues about Paul’s death&#151including some that could only be deciphered when the records were played backwards! Gibb related the rumor of Paul’s death on the air, which brought a strong reaction from listeners and the story spread rapidly after that.

The rumor became so widespread that Life magazine sent a crew to Scotland to track Paul down and take a photo of him. Paul had taken refuge from the Beatles’ legal battles at his farm in Scotland and he was not at all happy to be confronted by reporters. When the crew from Life magazine appeared on his farm, Paul became angry and doused the photographer with a bucket of water as he took pictures. The reporters quickly left and Paul, realizing that the photos would cast him in a negative light, followed after them. In exchange for the film of his outburst, Paul agreed to let the Life crew do an interview. The resulting article, which went into some detail about the supposed clues to Paul’s “death”, appeared as the cover story for the November 7, 1969, issue.


About the same time, a fan magazine appeared that reinforced many of the stranger elements of the “Paul is dead” rumor. A sloppy account rushed to newsstands to take advantage of the public fascination with the story, Paul McCartney Dead: The Great Hoax went into some detail in presenting the story of Paul’s “death.”


The story was that Paul McCartney had died in a car accident at 5:00 a.m. on Wednesday, November 9, 1966. Paul McCartney Dead: The Great Hoax suggested that Paul had picked up a female hitchhiker on his way to visit friends. The woman became so excited when she realized who had picked her up that she threw her arms around Paul and caused him to lose control of the car. Both Paul and his passenger were killed when the car swerved off the road and hit a stone fence. And here’s where the story takes a turn toward the ludicrous&#151Paul was decapitated in the accident and the trauma to his head was so severe that even his dental records were useless in identifying the victim! Not wanting to lose potential record sales, record company executives suppressed the story of Paul’s death and brought in a lookalike to replace him. For some reason (this is the part where you have to suspend disbelief) the surviving Beatles agreed to go along with this scheme, but they left clues on all of their subsequent albums about Paul’s death and the imposter who took his place. Paul’s stand-in was a man named William Campbell, who had won a Paul McCartney lookalike contest. With a little plastic surgery, William Campbell had taken Paul’s place in photos of the group. The surgery had been successful except for a small scar above his lip. And, as luck would have it, William Campbell could also sing and just happened to be a songwriter with an exceptional ear for pop melodies. Of course, Paul wasn’t really dead, as he explained in a statement accompanying the Life article (and several years later to Chris Farley on “Saturday Night Live”),

but that didn’t stop fans from poring over the Beatles’ albums for “clues” to Paul’s untimely demise. Many of the supposed clues to Paul’s death are simply vague references to death. Other clues are pictures of the Beatles that show Paul in a manner that is different from the other Beatles in some way, especially involving the colors red (blood) or black (death). Most of the “Paul is dead” clues are simply the product of an obsessive search for significance, but a few are genuinely chilling. The Beatles all denied that they had perpetrated a hoax and insisted that none of the “clues” about Paul’s supposed death had any significance whatsoever. According to Ringo, “It’s all a load of crap.” When asked if he had intentionally placed any of the clues, John denied it in similar terms, “No. That was bullshit, the whole thing was made up.” Lennon Remembers (New York: Popular Library, 1971), p. 97.

When Detroit DJ Russ Gibb spoke on the air about Paul McCartney’s rumored death, the story had already been circulating on college campuses for some time. Rolling Stone reported that someone had approached the magazine with a list of clues that Paul McCartney was dead in the fall of 1968. Rolling Stone dismissed the story at the time because “the trouble with his death cry was that too many people had seen Paul alive and it was the same old Paul…” But the rumor persisted and led at least a few inquisitive people to examine their Beatles albums and begin playing their records backwards.

Illinois University’s student newspaper, the Northern Star, ran an article in the September 23, 1969, edition entitled “Clues Hint at Possible Beatle Death”. The earliest piece, however, was by Tim Harper, whose article appeared in the college newspaper of Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, on September 17, 1969. Once the rumor became widespread Harper achieved some notoriety for being the first to put all of the clues together. The Des Moines Register reported that Harper had been paid for interviews in several states and that WLS-TV in Chicago had even chartered a private plane for him so that he could appear on their morning talk show. And he didn’t even own any of the Beatles’ albums! Des Moines Register (Oct. 23, 1969), p. 1. “It was just a joke,” he said. “I was the first one to put it all together. I knew when I wrote the story that it wasn’t true.” Chicago Sun-Times (Oct. 23, 1969), p. 3. Perhaps the article that did the most to propel the “Paul is dead” rumor was one written by a University of Michigan student named Frad LaBour. LaBour’s article appeared in the October 14, 1969, edition of the Michigan Daily, the University of Michigan’s newspaper, just two days after Tom’s call to Russ Gibb. Set with the task of writing a review of Abbey Road, LaBour wrote a tongue-in-cheek obituary of the Beatles. Even though it was not the first article about Paul’s rumored death, LaBour’s article in the was important because it fleshed out several aspects of the story. Many of the elements of the rumor that have been repeated countless times were products of LaBour’s imagination. He created the identity of Paul’s replacement, William Campbell, and he asserted the walrus was an image of death, stating “‘Walrus’ is greek for corpse.” Michigan Daily (Oct. 14, 1969), p.2, and reprinted in Andru Reeve’s book.

Actually rumors of Paul’s death were nothing new. A version of the “Paul is dead” rumor had existed in the UK at least as early as 1967. Paul had been involved in an accident in 1966 but he had sustained only minor injuries. Much like the rumors about Bob Dylan’s death followed his motorcycle accident, Paul was the subject of the same sort of speculation. J. Marks, writing in the New York Times, recounted that he and Linda Eastman, who had yet to meet Paul, had just finished working on a book together. Linda wondered aloud how she might meet Paul and then heard that Paul was dead and had been replaced by a double. Linda apparently was undeterred from meeting Paul and they were married within two years. When Linda and Paul married in March of 1969, J. Marks congratulated Paul with the message “Congratulations whoever you are!” New York Times, November 2, 1969, p. 13 (section II).

Andru Reeve points to a record by Terry Knight as being important in starting the rumor that Paul McCartney had died. Knight was a radio personality in Detroit who formed a band called The Pack and later began performing solo. In early 1969 Knight went to London hoping to join Apple records but the trip proved unsuccessful. Detroit Free Press (May 2, 1969), p. 5C. Knight found that the Beatles were fighting among themselves. Just after he returned to Detroit the Beatles hired Allen Klein to represent them against Paul’s wishes. As a result of his experiences with the Beatles, Knight recorded a song about Paul McCartney entitled “Saint Paul,” which was released in May of 1969. This song laments the Beatles’ troubles but clearly identifies with Paul McCartney. Knight evidently was aware that the Beatles were disintegrating, as in “You knew it all along/Something had gone wrong/They couldn’t hear your song” and “Sir Isaac Newton said it had to fall.” Those looking for evidence that Paul McCartney had died interpreted these lines as referring to Paul himself.

Yes, the whole “Paul is dead” rumor was absurd, so why did it create such a stir? It may have had something to do with the public’s growing awareness that all was not well with the Beatles. It explained why the Beatles had stopped touring (their final concert had been in San Francisco on August 29, 1966), why their music and appearance had changed so dramatically in the late-1960s, and why the Beatles seemed to be drifting apart. In his statement in Life magazine Paul declared that he wanted “to go on making good music. But the Beatle thing is over. It has been exploded by what we have done and partly by other people.”

Perhaps the antiestablishment sentiment of the time kept the rumor going. The rumor was initially told through alternative media at a time when mistrust for the “establishment” was high among young people. Deciphering the clues made fans feel as though they were in on the joke with the Beatles and, as a Chicago disk jockey put it,”The kids are enjoying the mysterious flavor of the rumor.” Chicago Sun-Times, October 21, 1969, p. 1.” According to Ralph L. Rosnow and Gary Alan Fine, who wrote Rumor and Gossip: The Social Psychology of Hearsay, the Life article only served to reinforce the belief in an elaborate ruse among those who accepted the conspiracy theory. The article created a “boomerang effect” that actually extended the life of the rumor. Rumor and Gossip: The Social Psychology of Hearsay (New York: Elsevier, 1976), p. 18.”  The Life article even contributed to the rumor by publishing sonagrams of Paul singing “Hey Jude,” which would have been recorded after Paul’s death, with Paul’s voice from “Yesterday.” The magazine quoted Dr. Henry Truby of the University of Miami, who found them to be “suspiciously different.” “Could there have been more than one ‘McCartney’?”, the Life article asked. Life, November 7, 1969, p. 104. After Paul appeared on the cover of Life magazine, coverage of the “Paul is dead” rumor declined rapidly. References to it popped up occasionally since then, but the rumor had run its course after a few weeks. And then came the internet…

  1. “The woman became so excited when she realized who had picked her up that she threw her arms around Paul and caused him to lose control of the car. ”

    So she only realised who he was after the car drove off? Yeah, right.

    • Kind of fascinating how she threw her arms around him and caused the accident. If both of them were killed…how would anyone know she threw her arms around him? lol

    • I do believe it is a conspiricy, perpetrated by The Beatles and/or thier handlers. All to promote sales and publicity. They and / or handlers were masters of self promotion. where do you think “lady ga ga” got the idea?
      (makes me wanna puke because I just typed that b—ch’s name). or that “Hilton” who is famous just for being famous.

      I say it’s a master stroke. Perhaps not planned, but somebody saw a good idea and ran with it.

    • The rumor goes that they were in the studio and John and Paul had a disagreement and Paul left…the other three stayed at the studio until the accident happened that a Lady named Rita saw the accident and said that he was one of the Beatles…someone went to the studio to notify someone and they went to identify him…the rumor goes as someone who called himself “George Harrison” recorded in a memoir and gave to his friend which was an editor two years prior to his death in 2005 that it was him…that John cried and the person that went to get them to identify him said that he looked like a walrus because when they lifted the sheet his head was next to his body he didn’t have none of his teeth but two that was coming out of his skin looking like a walrus…so John started punching the guy and he calmed himself when the person punched John on his stomach that left him with no air saying no I am the walrus…that’s the supposed rumor of George recorded memoir…in that memoir he says many things from what happened in the studio to the lookalike Paul…which they used to call him Faul…because he was the fake Paul…because the memoir was recorded after the Beatles broke up…George kept recording the tapes over when he saw new technology coming and the old ones could become damage…my question is is that George’s voice? Why the British MI5 want to keep the Beatles intact and make a fake Paul? You can find the recording in wikileak

  2. ofcourse paul is dead. after 1966 everything the beatles did was showing overwhelming amounts of clues leading to that fact and being replaced by a plastic surgery william campbell who won that look-a-like contest. you can practise voice impressions, many people do it and sound very much alike so these are not problems at all.
    if you where 1 of the real members under death threat and didn’t want the beatles to die and sworn an oath of secrecy, if broken = death.
    I mean… they used aleister crowley’s book “magic” to use those ways of communicating with the subconcious mind. writing backwards, talking backwards, listening to records backwards. a magick pratcise to get used to doing everything in reverse (mirrored) and using a mirror if what they meant with the jabberwocky. cause you need a mirror to read it. meaning “USE A MIRROR TO FIND THE CLUES”. even though many of the clues already where everywhere for those who didn’t buy the official version. you can’t ask false paul for truth, I mean he was the one responsible for having john killed after all. who told on him, what he was about to do.
    you don’t get wacked for no reason at all. and if you’re under death threat you are most likely very careful with what you say and do.
    that was john’s mistake to information faul about it. since faul loved being paul. cause of fame and fortune.
    on the cover of st.peppar there’s both aleister crowley and paul spelled in the roses on ground. the cover is a funeral for paul.
    paul on the center of the cover with the priest sign for blessing over his head.
    and not to mention he was placed as a cardboard picture sort of. meaing he’s not REAL. while the others where not.
    I mean literally everything was clues after pauls death. they didn’t want beatles to end, so instead put out clues absolutely everywhere.
    “let it be” was the last album cause they where talking with john about it like “c’mon just LET IT BE” because john really wanted to get the truth out. just imagine yourself being in that situation. knowing that if you’d say it straight out. it’s 100% sure that you’d be wacked. so using clues was clever. it’s defenitly not by accident. all information, evidence, proof points to it being so. comparing last picture of paul and first pictures of faul. is the best thing to do, to really see the difference on their faces. not to menton FAUL started playing right handed after the beatles was done….and slipped up times when he ACCIDENTLY put it on right-handed and quickly realized and flipped it to left-handed.
    you don’t make these mistakes, until you are right-handed and didn’t think carefully and reacted to late.

    if there’s a scanner that can see through the ground. go to blackpool and look around. apperantly there’s no cap stone so. gotta be able to see through the ground for a coffin that are not under a cap stone.
    … rubber paul (plastic surgery paul) when they’re looking down at paul in his grave. that’s what that cover represented, but it was too obvious of a clue that would of obviously gotten them wacked for breaking the oath. so they changed it to “rubber soul”
    if you play “i am the walrus” backwards it sez “Paul McCartney is a total bastard” just listen through it. I mean … the car crash on a record in reverse to cover it up from clear exposure meaing breaking the oath agian. just put yourself in that situation, how would you tell the truth, if you could say it straight out? you’d leave messages, subliminal, mirror messages anyway you can. there’s so much clues. it’s insane. how someone can not understand real paul is dead is just beyond ignorant.
    ringo and heather the only ones to be able to tell the truth…. someone really needs to get ringo into a conversation and tap that coversation with a hidden camera with sound.
    confront him when there’s no one around. he’s not gonna just put it out there. he’s under death threat obviously. must be a living hell to be him. with all that guilt inside.
    to ignore the clues is like a slap on the real mccartney’s face.
    while thinking the fake one is real. just see how messed up it all is.
    never accept the official version. it’s always a lie. the liar will never tell a truth unless that truth means nothing. but a big lie such a this, greatest cover-up in rock history. no… to expect FAUL would tell the truth is just insane. he wasn’t even bothered by john’s death, the same day when he got interviewed. it’s that look and sound on his voice like “I know I don’t care. I was responsible for it and knew it was coming” he wanted it to happen. he didn’t wanna be exposed for the fraud he was and still is to this day. he’d be hated by everyone, so he chose the lie and protected his lying ass by exposing john’s plan to tell the truth in public.

    • some typing mistakes fixed here:

      1. meaing he’s not REAL. while the others where*

      2. you don’t make these mistakes, UNLESS you are right-handed*

    • how would you tell the truth, if you couldNT say it*

      another correction. I type too fast and should really start double checking what I written before hitting send ;).
      how a “NT” can change so much. from COULD to COULDNT opposites. oh well.

    • Very plausible. Of course a few others would have to be in on the conspiracy. The 3 other beatles, their friends and families (who would have known Paul very very well for many years), George Martin and the entire studio personnel, record company people, Paul’s friends and family, every person who Paul EVER met, every reporter, every member of every other band who crossed their paths etc etc. This ‘Faul’ have had to somehow know every instance where Paul had ever met anyone just in case they met again and compared memories, anecdotes etc. On top of that he’s identical in every way, a left handed multi instrumentalist and a musical genius! Yeah very plausible you dipshit.

      • The “plausible” part was that they were referring to Paul, whether as a hoax or to cover up something else. Please try to keep up…the answer, the actual real true answer, is Time. God is Dead was the real message.

        • Have you seen the Iamaphoney videos, saying Its Time, Its Time, Its Time all over the place. That is literally true, It is Time. April 8th 1966, Julian’s 3rd birthday…that’s why the 3’s are everywhere.

      • Could you please help me to find a copy of this confession? My research had suggested how it was originally placed upon his personal website, but was soon taken down by person or persons unknown.

        Would Wayback Internet Archives be able to keep a copy of what was uploaded or is there a private link somewhere? I’m still not even certain if the (alleged) original format was done in print, video, mp3, or whatever…

  3. There is an answer, and the real answer is that Paul is Dead, is God is Dead. The Is God Dead issue of Time and the Atlanta (ATL) based obituary for God in that issue dated November 9th.

    The November 9th is encoded into the mirrored drum, the doll is pointing at the ATL in Beatles on Pepper. Find the ATLs and LTA’s in the Beatles work and Paul’s work, because they are everywhere. I Was, replacing I AM.

    “Paul” was plausible deniability…just don’t tell Manson. 😉

    • I’ve done that, using tape, NOT just spinning the LP backward by hand.
      There is plenty of backward content there, but the only thing of interest sounds like, “Turn me on dead man.” This corresponds to every instance of, “Number nine,” forward.
      I experimented by recording my own voice. It doesn’t work unless I say, “number nine,” with the same accent and inflection used by the announcer. Then it just happens to sound like, “Turn me on dead man,” when played backwards.
      As much backward content as there is in this composition, I’m sure they were aware of it. I’m just not convinced that it was planned as a message.

      • Did you know that “Turn me on, dead man” is an anagram of “unornamented dam”? Positive proof that Paul McCartney fell off his plain old
        moped and was drowned in a dam or reservoir. Have you done any research
        on Liverpool waterworks near where
        Paul McCartney lived?

        • ” Paul McCartney ” is an anagram of ” Mac Pantry Clue “.

          Conclusive evidence that Paul McCartney, the closet refrigerator raider, choked to death on a late night cheese and onion sandwich
          during one of his many late night binge eating marathons.

          Check out ” Mac Pantry Clue “.

          ( “Mac Pantry Clue” = Macca Pantry Clue? Get it?)

          It’s a slam dunk!!

    • Lets pretend I am the imposter.I won’t do DNA because of $$$. Even after the most expensive(?) divorse in history, I still have a lot of ???. And it seems to keep rolling in. As an imposter I still really get my jollies up on stage, just like the dead man. I can still, and do, compose terriffic music. With all this in my favor, why would I risk a possible risk a goof in the testing? And I am not an imposter… I would say “bugger off”, or something else that is not publishable.

  4. A few months after Lennon was randomly assassinated by a fan, the Lennon/McCartney Copyrights were sold to Michael Jackson. Nobody in their right mind would sell their intellectual property, especially not to Michael Jackson.

    • So sorry, I did not address the mj thing. I totaly agree, why him ? Perhaps a weak moment, or bad advice. Still dumb w/ or w/o being an imposter.

    • John Lennon was killed in 1980. Michael Jackson acquired the Beatles’ catalog in 1985. That’s not a “few months”.

  5. Billy Shepard was guitarist for Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots and lead singer for the Bonzo Band. He was also a working studio musician and knew the Beatles, played their music in performances and sometimes filling in for those musicians who couldn’t produce. When Paul died, Sept 11, 1966… Billy was immediately asked if he would take over and would not only have to go through numerous surgeries, but also learn to play left handed bass. He had green eyes( Paul’s were brown) and was two inches taller..hence.. no more touring. Most who knew the truth were sworn to secrecy or would end up dead. Do your research… or read Billy’s book, The Memoir of Billy Shears..Published by Pepper Press ( billy pepper) owned by Macca Corp. SIr Paul’s company… He promises to tell the whole truth in 2021…

  6. Many other back mastered messages are present on the recording of Revolution 9 that are never ever discussed and I have definitely heard them. Besides the obvious phrase “turn me on dead man” I have heard “his mantra is get me out ” , “his mantra is turn me on dead man” , “Where did we get the impervert musician? Hold it! Houston. ” , ” A noise across the left hood. You know what? He flew out the window and hit the light pole. Can I help you me boy? More water.” , “sooner or later it’ll happen, they’ll find out.” , “Misser McCartney is dead. Give me some reds. Give me some reds.”

  7. Yes. It really did happen. The cover-up? Not very difficult, really, considering the money and the times. All of those little clues? Yes, there are out there to be figured out and followed. They were left for you. Enjoy the mystery.
