Do you believe?
A myth about the existence of Paul McCartney has developed over some time and it is believed that the other three Beatles got a replacement (William) and planted clues in their songs, gatefolds, and album covers, sleeves etc. to tell the public the truth.
Here are the clues...

*These clues are acredited to*

As the story goes, there was a look-a-like contest held by the remaining three Beatles to find a replacement for Paul. The winner (William Campbell)was said to have, after minor plastic surgery, been photographed for album covers and appearances.
In reality there WAS a look-a-like contest held by a teen magazine in 1965.
Butcher Cover
It was announced publicly that Capitol Records was disgusted by the 'butcher' cover, and so was the public, this is supposedly why it was replaced by the 'trunk' cover. Others believe the Beatles themselves had recalled the cover because it showed how badly Paul was injured in his car accident.
More Cover Clues:
1.)George has a dolls head in his hand beside Paul's own head. This means that Paul was decapitated in the crash.
2.)There are teeth on Paul's arm. (the teeth that were knocked out by the accident)
3.)The pieces of meat and broken dolls are to represent Paul's body after the accident.
