Overview

In the fall of 1969, the story seemed to come out of nowhere. Was Beatle Paul McCartney dead?

This was no ordinary death rumor. It was believed that McCartney had died years earlier and been replaced by a lookalike. What's more, the surviving Beatles were thought to have planted "clues" to his death on their record albums.

"Paul-Is-Dead" mania swept the United States as people attempted to solve the riddle of Paul's alleged demise.

How did all of this happen? Beatles scholar and journalist Andru J Reeve has gotten to the bottom of this intrigue. After years of research, Reeve has assembled TURN ME ON, DEAD MAN to tell the strangest tale ever in the history of rock 'n' roll.

Everything you ever wanted to know about 'Paul Is Dead' -- and stuff you didn't even know you wanted to know!

A very unusual and minor facet of the Beatles's history, this book must certainly capture every conceivable angle about it. There are interviews and vignettes and a complete history of the rumor of Paul McCartney's death and why it became such a huge story. I was blown away by the detail and depth of this examination. And it was fun to read, too!

Stunningly good.  I was expecting a potboiler, a conspiracy-crazed rant.  But this study is exhaustive and well-researched.  I learned a lot from it -- and it actually aims to "solve" the mystery.  I'm not sure it achieved its goal, but it came closer than any other account I've ever read on the topic.  Well worth the money and the time.
