”Beverly Hills, CA -- Celebrated Beatles drummer Ringo Star, confirmed that Paul McCartney died in a car crash back in 1966.
“When Paul died, we all panicked!” said ex Beatles drummer Ringo Star in an interview in his luxurious Californian residence.
“We didn’t know what to do, and Brian Epstein, our manager, suggested that we hire Billy Shears as a temporary solution. It was supposed to last only a week or two, but time went by and nobody seemed to notice, so we kept playing along,” Ringo said.
This wasn’t the first time this ‘conspiracy theory’ hit the media. In 1969, a student claimed that Paul McCartney is not who the world believes he is and that the Beatles tried to hint to the world the truth about Paul’s hidden identity in the ‘Sargent Peppers Lonely Hart Club Band’. However, everyone considered it a hoax.”
Paul McCartney finally reacted this morning to the controversial declarations made last Wednesday by his former bandmate, Ringo Starr, during an interview with the Hollywood Inquirer. Ringo alleged that the “real” Paul had died in 1966 and had been replaced by a look-alike named Williams Shears Campbbell, a claim which Paul dismisses as “the rambling of a senile old man”.
Sir Paul decided to invite the media to his primary residence located on the outskirts of the small town of Peasmarsh, in Sussex, to refute the allegations and to put an end to the rumors which have been spreading and multiplying over the last few days.
“I know that Ringo is growing senile and losing his mind,” says Sir Paul, “but he doesn’t need to invent such idiotic stories to attract attention. He probably heard that Wings was about to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame and he felt jealous. I’ve seen Ringo do and say many stupid things in my life, but this is one of the worst! If he’s so badly in need of media coverage, he could just invent crap about himself without implicating me in his delirium” he added with spite.
