Another Clue For You All: Deconstructing the “Paul Is Dead” Myth

Sedona: Thursday, Oct. 12 at 7 p.m.

In the Fall of 1969, people all across the United States and beyond were completely obsessed with a rumor that Paul McCartney was dead, an imposter had joined the Beatles, and the group was leaving clues in their music, album art, and lyrics. Some believed the story completely. Some thought it was a hoax. Everyone dissected their Beatles albums, scrutinizing the cover art and lyrics, and playing songs forwards, backwards, and at different speeds until they wore out their phonograph needles. By the end of 1969, the Paul Is Dead rumor had died down. But that has never stopped many who still believe that the Paul McCartney we know and love died back in 1966. Join Scott Freiman as he explores the true history of the ‘Paul Is Dead’ myth. Find out how the rumor really started, and what the manager of Grand Funk had to do with it. Learn how the rumor was spread, and why F. Lee Bailey played a part. And explore scores of “clues” the Beatles spread across their songs and albums. As usual, Scott will be sharing lots of rarities and inside stories as he discusses the legacy of this strange time in Beatles history.

Scott Freiman combines his love of The Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver unique educational lectures about the creative process of The Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions. His multimedia presentations transport his audiences into Abbey Road Studio with anecdotes about The Beatles’ recording sessions, allowing fans to experience the evolution of The Beatles’ groundbreaking albums and songs.

Freiman’s lectures have entertained audiences of musicians and non-musicians alike, from pre-teenagers to octogenarians. Once you’ve attended one of Scott’s presentations, you’ll never listen to The Beatles or any other music the same way again!
