The Beatles icon Paul McCartney’s official web site posted a recent interview with the legendary musician and asked interesting questions to him.

Paul responded to the conspiracy theories about “Paul Is Dead” rumors goes for years.

Interviewer:

“Even though you were 27 when Abbey Road came out! So, you’re aware of the conspiracy?”

Paul McCartney:

“I know all the rumours… because I was being asked about them! There would literally be someone ringing up to ask, ‘Are you dead?’ I said, ‘Well, no. I’m answering this phonecall!’ And the reply would be, ‘Well, I can’t be sure it’s you’.

So, then you actually do get a bit paranoid about yourself. And you think, ‘How am I going to prove to them or to anyone, that this is me?!’ I figured, in time, this look-a-like will be writing some pretty decent songs, and if it wasn’t me how had I trained him to write songs?”

Interviewer:

“There are rumours that it’s actually William Campbell or Billy Shears. And various hashtags online, like #Faul – ‘Fake Paul’.”

Paul McCartney:

“Too many drugs! People may have taken too many drugs and started looking for answers in all the wrong places!”
