    I just read this big ole thing, and im kinda new to the beatles. im sure this is just a hoax, but i think all the coincidences are still quite surprising (provided that they're all true). any beatles fans ever call that number? like, i guess im just looking for more info on this whole shenanigan.

    Well, the link does not seem to be working, for me at least.

    Here's another link with some 'Paul is dead' rumour.

    I find it funny that so much was read into it, and that the band even seemed to have played along with it.

    I was familiar with most of the info, but I had completely overlooked the full title of 'I am the Walrus'. Of course, I realised that 'Glass Onion' stated that "the walrus was Paul", but it never really hit me that from the outset, Magical Mystery Tour album claimed that Lennon was indeed not the walrus.

    very intersting reads

    also... the beatles released the white album in 1968. 2 years after paul's "death"

    in the song "i'm so tired", there is a line
    at the end that some people think is just gibberish, while others think it says:

    Monsieur, Monsieur, Monsieur, how about another one?"

    either way, when it is played backwards, it sounds like:

    "paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him, miss him"

    don't believe me?
    go here and click on "i'm so tired"

    i downloaded a program to reverse music.
    it works.

    that link is funny, some of them are clever (pink floyd, weird al), some are hilarious (Britney spears, man thats funny. also the queen one) and some are just dumb (led zeppelin).

    theres no way the clues the beatles put in are all coincidences, gotta be a publicitiy stunt

    yah my mom was a pretty bug mccartney/beatles fan back in the day, she once snuck into their hotel room before a show just to be able to walk by them, she also snuck into paul mac's new house as it was being built, peed in his toilet and left a note saying "i love you." she also hung out in the back of a van with the beatles manager (brian wilson or something).

    I owned the albums and had seen all the "evidence", there are a couple the guy in the second article did not mention, for example in Magical Mystery Tour, Paul is sitting behind a desk in a military uniform w/ flaggs crossed over his head behind a plaque that says "I was". I forget the rest but he nailed most of them, I couldn't get the first one to download.
    The angle I find interesting is the Manson one, it makes sense to me that they could not come out and say ha ha we got you, when Manson is in court saying The Beatles Made Me Do It.
    None of the albums after that have any "evidence" on them.
    I also agree that's something John would do to tease all of the poeple going around at that time finding "symbolism" in everything, Books Music Movies, some people saw it in everything.
