Paul McCartney is dead… maybe

by Charles Womack

Paul McCartney has a concert scheduled for Wednesday at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte.

The legendary ex-Beatle recently announced that his 2010 Up and Coming tour would include his first stop in NC in 17 years.

Tickets are selling well and everyone is excited to see Paul… or will they be seeing Paul McCartney at all?

I recently had the opportunity to view a 95-minute DVD entitled Paul McCartney Really Is Dead. The Last Testament of George Harrison.

At first listen, a friend and I agreed that the voice claiming to be George Harrison sounded like a very bad Beatle impersonator. But after some comparisons, we were intrigued.

The DVD packaging and the website ( state that in the summer of 2005, a package arrived at the Hollywood offices of Highway 61 Entertainment from London with no return address. Inside were two mini-cassette audio tapes dated December 30, 1999 and labeled The Last Testament of George Harrison. The DVD points are;

• A voice eerily similar to Harrison’s tells a shocking story: Paul McCartney was killed in a car crash in November of 1966 and replaced with a double!

• British intelligence, MI5, had forced the Beatles to cover up McCartney’s death to prevent mass suicides of Beatle fans. However, the remaining Beatles tried to signal fans with clues on album covers and in songs.

• Until now, the “Paul is Dead” mystery that exploded worldwide in 1969 was considered a hoax. However, in this film, the mysterious voice on the tapes reveals a secret Beatles history, chronicling McCartney’s fatal accident, the cover up, dozens of unknown clues and a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with “Maxwell,” the Beatles’ MI5 handler, as John Lennon became increasingly reckless with the secret.

• The voice also claims that Lennon was assassinated in 1980 after he threatened to finally expose “Paul McCartney” as an imposter!

Highway 61 Entertainment has investigated this stunning new account of the conspiracy to hide McCartney’s tragic death and produced this unauthorized documentary that includes newly unearthed evidence. The mysterious voice on the audio tapes narrates the entire film in what may prove to be the most important document in rock and roll history, leaving little doubt that Paul McCartney really is dead.

Now I was never a true believer in the Paul is Dead story, but after watching the DVD, listening to all the facts and seeing all the clues and clever, clever things the Beatles did on their album covers and in their songs to drive this conspiracy… I am even more impressed with their talents.

The video is worth a watch for any true Beatle fan who wants to learn more about how this conspiracy. And if you’re at the show Wednesday night, take a good look at the guy on stage. He may not be who he says he is.
