OXON HILL, Md. - It's a decades-old rumor few attending this weekend's Beatles tribute festival at National Harbor have any doubt putting to rest: is Paul McCartney dead? Their uniform answer is no! And yet, a new documentary that had its worldwide premiere at the festival Friday claims McCartney died in a car crash in 1966.
"They had covered up the death at the behest of her Majesty's government and the British intelligence service, MI5," said the documentary's director Joel Gilbert.
He says the British government was "afraid there would be a rash of suicides worldwide if Paul McCartney's death was made public."
Gilbert's documentary is called Paul McCartney Really Is Dead - the Last Testament of George Harrison. He says it is based on audio recordings Harrison reportedly made in which he spills the beans on the Beatles' death-denying coverup.
The filmmaker says the man we've celebrated the past 44 years is a guy named William Campbell, who was discovered during a secret Paul McCartney look-alike contest staged by Dick Clark's American Bandstand.
"The Beatles came out and denied it and then they broke up within six months," Gilbert said on the FOX 5 Morning News.
Bruce Spizer has researched and written several books about the Beatles.
"It's simply not true. Paul McCartney is Paul McCartney. He's not William Campbell in disguise or anything like that, said Spizer.
Gilbert says you can find evidence of Paul McCartney's death littered throughout the Beatles extensive body of work.
"Take a look at the cover of the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. That scene is essentially a funeral for Paul McCartney. If you look at the lyrics at that time, they say 'he died at five o'clock on a Wednesday morning. We had a pool of tears,'" Gilbert said.

So.... where’s William Campbell then (and now)?????????
Well, all I can say is, that guy who took McCartney’s place was a fantastic bass player.
We used to play Revolution number 9 (white album) backwards - you can hear the car crash.
Actually McCartney was taken up in a UFO piloted by a Bigfoot. I found this out through documents obtained through use of the Freedom Of Information Act.
In fairness I must now reveal that there is another version as to how McCartney left us in the 1960’s. He was receiving a cleansing colonic and burst!
I remember the hype and hoopla over this, the rumor of McCartney’s untimely demise was supposedly started by Roby Younge, who was a DJ at WABC in NYC. He ultimately got fired because of it.
We had a whakjob running around the college dorm in 1969, playing albums backwards, trying to call the so called phone number on the Magical Mystery Tour album and absolutely CONVINCED the story was true. Unforgettable.
An urban legend sourced?

In the final analysis Dubya's Presidency disappointed me, but I greatly resented Paul's crack about Dubya delivered on stage after he had serenaded The One & Moochelle.
lol this must mean the one walking around now is a stuffed idiot.
His story is well known to those of us who are Riders in the Sky groupies.
“...decades old rumors...”
Oy, I feel old.
I see through your ruse. The P is backwards. Still more proof.
