Yes the myth of Paul McCartney continues. I have a hard time believing any images today because of digital manipulation but check this one out. It supposedly shows Paul and his double variously referred to as Billy Shears, William Campbell, and Faul as in fake Paul together in one picture.
Tell me, where did anyone get the notion Billy Shears is supposed to be Paul's double? I was -2 years old when Sgt Pepper's came out, so I guess I can't claim authority, but the first story I heard was that for the album the Beatles were play acting at being a different band, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, in fact, and that they each had a different persona. Paul sings, "Let me introduce to you, the one and only Billy Shears" who is Ringo, and then Ringo takes it into With a Little Help From My Friends.
Yeah I know, there's so much back story to the myth that I don't feel like getting into. It's really a waste of time but I find it amazing this thing is still going after forty some years.
