Publisher Comments:

andlt;Bandgt;"PAUL IS DEAD."andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; It was the late 1960s, the Beatles hadn't toured since 1966, and some truly bizarre indications began appearing, pointing to the unthinkable: Paul McCartney had been killed in a car accident and replaced by a look-alike. andlt;Iandgt;The Walrus Was Paulandlt;/Iandgt; unearths every single clue from one of rock 'n' roll's most enduring puzzles and takes you on a magical mystery tour of baffling, yet fascinating, hints for solving this mystery. andlt;BRandgt; Test your "Paul is dead" trivia knowledge. Did you find and answer the following clues on the front cover? andlt;BRandgt; andlt;UL TYPE=DISCandgt; andlt;LIandgt;andlt;Bandgt;To what song does the title, andlt;Iandgt;The Walrus Was Paul,andlt;/Iandgt; refer?andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; "I Am the Walrus," which appeared on the clue-filled album andlt;Iandgt;Magical Mystery Tour.andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;andlt;Bandgt;There is an egg in Paul's eye. Why?andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; In the song "I Am the Walrus," John Lennon sings, "I am the eggman...I am the walrus" — and later, in the song "Glass Onion," we find out that, in fact, "the walrus was Paul." andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;andlt;Bandgt;To what album (and richest source of "Paul is dead" clues) do the red, Victorian-style design elements on the front refer?andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; andlt;Iandgt;Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Bandandlt;/Iandgt; andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;andlt;Bandgt;Why is the image of Paul McCartney on the cover blurry? Are there distinguishing characteristics that might lead you to conclude something is awry?andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; Many photographs of Paul in these questionable years were blurry, and Paul had a mustache, which allegedly concealed the fact that this was not Paul and the plastic-surgery scars were being hidden from his curious public. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;andlt;Bandgt;The anagram on the bottom of the cover refers to a Greek island where John Lennon had what planned?andlt;/Bandgt;andlt;BRandgt; The island Leso is the "hidden Greek island" on which John Lennon planned to bury Paul, and it is spelled out as "Be at Leso" on the cover of andlt;Iandgt;Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.andlt;/Iandgt; andlt;/ULandgt;
