Was Paul McCartney "Replaced" By a "Double" in 1966?

Some years ago, I came across some evidence that Paul McCartney had been
"replaced" by a "double" - some time in 1966. Paul was replaced by "Faul". This
is, again, one of those stories which people can snort with laughter at, as it
just seems unbelievable for so many reasons. A close member of my family who,
like me, is a fan of the Beatles found it very difficult (impossible even) to entertain the notion that McCartney could have been replaced. Who can blame him - watching things like "Anthology" or any of the numerous Beatles-related
documentaries and interviews makes is hard to believe that "Faul" could have the
memories that were really Paul's.
Watch the ears, nose and chin
closely - the distance between the eyes has been equalized , and you
have already seen that this comparison should be an almost perfectly
clean crossfade. But instead, the nose changes in length and width, the
chin changes dramatically from an almost perfectly symmetrical one with
a cleft straight down the middle
But what does the evidence show? Is the above just "cherry picking"? What are
the things that are "glossed over"? You won't know until you've looked, will
Interview with Tina Foster re "Faul and Paul"
Thanks to a link sent by a friend, I found out about a comprehensive blog
detailing a number of areas of evidence which seem to show there is more to this
than backmasking, reverse speech and rumour. You can find the blog at
. As I was troubled by this issue, I asked Tina if she would record a Podcast
with me, which she kindly agreed to do on 21st Jan 2012. You can listen and
download using the links below.
Tina contends that Paul was switched with Faul between about the 26th and
28th of August 1966. However, I wonder if it happened at the end or after their
tour of America. It is hard to believe and hard to accept that they other band
members, friends and so on would either not have known this or would have known
and "gone along" with what transpired. We discuss some of these troubling issues
in the interview.
"Do You Want to Know A Secret... Do You Promise Not to Tell..."
Added to the facial evidence, we have a catalogue of strange remarks made by
John Lennon, Heather Mills and others close to McCartney.
Paul has himself made strange remarks about "another him", which could easily
be interpreted innocently - referring, perhaps, to how much one's life changes
over time. But do they have a deeper, more sinister meaning? On their own, they
prove nothing, but knowing "operating procedures" of the Secret Apparatus which
runs all major affairs on Planet Earth, we can see that this may be one of those
scenarios in which they "give us clues" as to what they are doing behind the
I found Heather Mills remarks on GMTV on Nov 1 2007 to be very interesting -
and whatever their meaning, she does an excellent job of illustrating the role
of the media in "dealing with" any "nails that stick up" which need "bashing
I have to be honest and say that one thing that really gave me the creeps was
McCartney "buddying up" to Obama and taking a swipe at those who question the
AGW Agenda - and those who question other "official truths".
If you can find a film called "The US Versus John Lennon" and
the consider its content, and also that Lennon returned an MBE he was awarded in
protest, you will perhaps share my feelings of concern at this sort of
"hobnobbing" by McCartney - or Faul.
For me, if for no one else, it shows that whether he is Faul, or really is
Paul, he has become successfully embedded in the program of lies and deceit -
and his celebrity status has been used to further this agenda.
