Hello Everyone! I was 10 years old when Sgt. Pepper came out. My older brother had all the Beatle albums and I was crazy for Paul. However, when I saw the Sgt. Pepper cover I remember thinking, "What happened to Paul's face? Why is it so long?" This Paul didn't feel right. I had this guy's face etched in my brain because of my mad crush. To my young eyes, Paul had changed. I heard about the PID idea when I was a teenager but never paid much attention to it. Then, life kind of took over and it was pretty much forgotten. Fast forward to the present...
I'm now 61. I was still on the fence about the whole PID thing until I came across the theories online quite by accident a month ago. It didn't take long for me to step into the rabbit hole. The stuff I've been finding is fascinating and I'm getting swayed that Paul did die. The one problem is that as a young girl, I was nuts about Paul. I now find myself feeling very sad about the way he died and how he was never properly mourned by his fans or by me. I think about how the other Beatles must have felt through all this. What a mind fuck that must have been!
I am beginning to be 100% convinced James Paul McCartney was replaced by Faul after his death, and I'm now looking for ways to mourn my loss and move on. I thought this forum would be good for me to speak with like-minded people.
Welcome! I remember getting into this a few years back and when my young nephew was over I asked him if he thought this was the same guy. (showing him pre and post '66 pics of Paul) He didn't hesitate - just said - no. Almost as if 'why are you even asking me this?'.
I think if there is a preconceived notion that it must be the same Paul pre and post - then our brain leans towards that. Without that, the whole thing seems to be clearer.
The fact you picked up on the differences is an exception. Observant!
Welcome cosmicnomad! I'm pleased you've joined us here, and look forward to your posts and insights.
Just a bit of 'housekeeping': As a moderator here, I have been asking posters to limit the length of the lines of text of their posts to about 2/3 of the available space <--- to about here and then move on to the next line to continue, because Proboards has an issue with how it appears on old Windows systems. Their pages become distorted after a point, and become unreadable, so your co-operation would be appreciated in this matter. It's not a big deal, but it helps.
There's an theory that Faul is Canadian! Maybe you could add your own 2 cents to that idea?!
I did hear that theory. I can't remember where I read this, but he was apparently a cop from Ontario. Maybe he was the guy who gave Macca the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) badge he wore on Sgt Pepper... If I find the article, I'll send it on to you.
