Billy’s Back! shows how William Shepherd ("Billy Shears") replaced Paul McCartney in The Beatles, revealing how he went from "Billy Pepper" of Billy Pepper and the Pepper Pots to "Sgt. Pepper" of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Replacing Paul saved The Beatles, but plagued each band member. Now you can understand the secret messages and see how to verify the proven facts of Paul's death.

Besides many song and album clues that even the experts have missed, you will also learn the hard physical evidence. Here are a few examples:

Chapter 4 reveals how and why it was proven in court, in Germany, that the current Paul does not have the same DNA as the earlier Paul McCartney.

Chapter 34 identifies the professor in Florida who was the first to publish the fact that the new and old Paul have different voiceprints, proving again that they cannot possibly be the same person (since voiceprints are as unique as fingerprints.)

Chapter 59 recounts the trouble that the current Paul got into in Japan when his fingerprints did not match those of the original Paul McCartney.

Throughout the book, you will learn to easily recognize their distinct physical differences, their personality differences, and the conspicuous differences in their singing and musical skills. You will also come to know the current Paul's inner-workings about how, even now, he deals with the identity-switch, and how he continues to work to please the Paul who has crossed over.

Billy’s Back! is the epic of our hero, Paul McCartney, who entered the underworld, and then returned to us by taking possession of the session musician, William Shepherd ("Billy Shears"). This revealing fact-filled work of historical fiction reveals from William's own point of view exactly how the Beatles replaced Paul, what the secret messages really mean, and how you can be certain that they are true.

The "Paul is Dead" story has been told before, but never so authoritatively, or with such details of how and why Paul prepared for it, how they made the switch, how and why William took over the band and the McCartney estate, and how the switch in the band improved The Beatles, but tormented them all, especially John and "Paul."

When you know what really happened and why, you will never again harbor any doubts of Paul's death and replacement by William. In addition, as you learn the background of the songs cited, you will never again hear those songs the same way. This book will forever change your perceptions of those songs and of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, Donovan, The Who, and Elton John--all of whom made songs about Paul's replacement.

Billy’s Back! includes the material from The Memoirs of Billy Shears that the public most wants to know of Paul's death and replacement, along with many other fascinating details from The Memoirs, without the Beatles philosophical attainments (See Beatles Enlightenment), and without their darker aspects, such as their Paulism (only available in the unabridged Memoirs).

Editorial Reviews

A very scary, detailed book for Paul Is Dead theorists. . . . It has been said on good authority that this book was written by the man who plays Paul. He said he will release little bits of information and then have a big reveal this year. I loved this book. It is very detailed . . . I do so much recommend this book to everyone. It is such a great read and very hard to put down . . . None of this is made up. All of the stories in here can be looked up and verified. Amazing book. A great read.
