My favorite 'conspiracy theory' that I've heard in recent years is the one about "Faul" or the fake Paul McCartney that joined the Beatles.

According to the theory, Paul McCartney, the singer/songwriter and the bass player of The Beatles, was replaced after a fateful car crash... It's said there was no body at the scene because it was just so gruesome.

According to the tale, the only person at the scene of the crash was Billy Campbell Shears. Because he felt so badly about what happened, he stepped in to fill the hole that "Paul's death" created.

There is a group of fans out there that truly believe that "Faul" or Fake Paul went on to the lead the Beatles, Wings, and even to have Paul's full solo career, while using his name and likeness.

"Faul McCartney" according to this theory may have made better songs and more songs than Paul, but he's still not real.
