There are people who believe Paul McCartney was permanently replaced in 1966. I'm one of them. What happened to him? That's what this blog will explore.

Where Did All The Pauls Go? (Cont. from 8/20/11 and 7/2/10)
I showed in my 8/20/11 post that it looks like a Paul replacement shown coming off a plane on The Beatles' 1966 tour surfaced in a 1969 photo. I've found another photo of a Paul replacement first seen in The Beatles' 1965 MBE award interview surfacing in 1968 in the so-called "dirty weekend" when Paul was supposed to have visited Los Angeles. Take a look at two Youtube videos:
For original Beatles fans, 1966 was a strange year. The "Butcher" cover and John's "more popular than Jesus" comment signaled that something was wrong with The Beatles. By 1967, we heard a different voice than Paul's on Penny Lane and we saw a different face in photos. Most of us abandoned Beatle fandom.
In 1969, the "Paul is Dead" clues surfaced and were so strong and consistent, that many people wondered if that was the answer to the puzzling changes in Paul's voice and looks.
People have been looking into that possibility from 1969-on but have not been able to document what happened to Paul.
My generation deserves to know the truths about the group that we loved and made famous. So the search is on . . .
