Sunday 11th September 1966, Evening

Paul was returning from his trip in good spirits, planning to arrive at Ringo's house that night with two girls.
It had been a wonderful time.
After a period of turmoil, everything seemed to be returning back to a normal routine.

The storm in the world against the Beatles, instigated by John's notorious comments to the press and stirred by further controversy over the "butcher" album cover, seemed to have finally calmed.
Paul had recently had a sudden burst of extraordinary creativity over a very short period of time, perhaps as a reaction to all that had happened.

One of the last official photos of "THE BEATLES"

It had been a typically seasonal rainy day.
At a semaphore crossing a van suddenly cut across the street, blocking the car Paul was in.
The car didn't quite stop in time and hit the van, but not seriously enough to do any real damage.
During the crash Paul lost his top-wig.

Paul telephoned Ringo to tell him what had happened and that he would be with him in an hour or two.
Ringo thought it was just one of those jokes that Paul usually pulled.
Soon after the telephone call the police arrived and Paul decided to get a taxi home.

The next morning, seeing that Paul had not returned home, Ringo tried to call him but strangely he couldn't get in touch with him.
We retraced his steps through our common friends but nobody had seen or heard from him.
We were on the telephone all day.

On Thursday of the same week, a friend of Ringo called to say that people he knew had seen Paul in France.
We flew to Paris but Paul was no longer in the place where he was seen before.
As more days passed, our apprehension grew.

The hill: the place where Paul was found
(a frame from the "Magical Mystery Tour" Film)

A call was received from a girl, that days before, had found Paul near her house, wandering along a hill in a confused state with a damaged leg but without documents and money.

Brian Epstein went to retrieve Paul and on Sunday they started their trip to return home.
But from that day we heard no more news about them for days.

It was very early in the Wednesday morning of the week after we received the call, but not the one we had been waiting for.
We were called out to identify Paul's body, found on a beach near Outreau, North France.

With his feet just below his knees as a result of a fall from a great altitude.

He was in a ghastly state.
His lips looked as if they had been heavily damaged.
The left side of his face had been ripped to pieces and the whole of his right ear had been bitten off.

When we arrived there was a line of police officers blocking us while a crowd of men in medical uniforms were retrieving material for further investigation.
They were so oblivious to the grief we felt that one of them had the audacity to exclaim right in front of Paul's body: "Look ...it seems like a walrus!"

Well, with his teeth hanging outside of his eaten-up lips and with a shiny swollen ear and dripping wet he really did look like a walrus.
John confronted the man who had spoken so insensitively and they began to brawl.
He had to be pulled away as he howled:

"I.., I am the walrus ..not him (Paul), I.., I am the walrus!"

Brian was still in the plane when it went into the sea.

We were desperately aware that THE BEATLES were finished.
We were in total despair for two days.
But our anger made us think: we would not stop, we would not give up.

Paul had left a lot of material that was yet to be published.
We had a meeting, and agreed, nobody had to know what happened and Paul and Brian could still be kept alive.
The only question was how.

It was confirmed once again to the press that the Beatles wished to stop touring and work only in the recording studio to give us a bit of breathing space.

A friend of Ringo suggested a solution which could be made possible through the intelligence service department:
they had expert cosmetic surgeons and make-up artists at their disposal who could recreate perfect doubles in their secret labs...but in exchange for their help we had to keep quiet about what had happened.

The penalty for refusing to remain silent was death.
They found a look-alike for Brian, the S.O.E. agent Maurice Buckmaster, and they introduced us to a few contenders for Paul but the main problem was to find one with the most similar voice possible.

We had already checked out a number of imitators, of which there were many at the time, in order to find one with a face compatible with Paul's.
There was a guy already working with us that was able to imitate Paul's voice in a cogent manner and his face as presented was wonderfully compatible in regards to his profile elements displacement and to jawbone shape, two key factors in determining the correct candidate that the cosmetic surgeons could use.

Phil Ackrill

His name was Phil Ackrill.
Previously he was with "The Diplomats Band" where he was a friend of Denny Laine

Phil liked to sing and knew how to play a bit on the piano and on drums.
He had a beautiful voice but the quality of his Paul singing voice imitation needed work.
We decided to use a different voice imitator to complete the songs for the album we were working on, so it could be released quickly in order to divert the suspicions and rumors that had begun to hound us.

But there were a number of differences:

Paul had a round face
Phil had a dug face
Paul was brown haired
Phil was red/blonde haired
Paul was long-sighted
Phil was short-sighted
Paul had hair that naturally went from left to right
Phil impersonating Paul had hair that went from right to left
Paul was left handed
Phil was right handed.

The solution was Phil Ackrill!

The English Government decided to dedicate the people of Special Operations Executive ( S.O.E. ), an old division of the Intelligence Service to manage the entire matter.
And so, Phil became a Sergeant as he was required to be under military oath.

From The Diplomats to The Beatles: THE Phil Ackrill AKA Faul ( Faux Paul McCartney ) STORY

In an irony of fate the "substitutes" had inverted heights:
The substitute of Paul was taller and the counterpart of Brian was smaller. For this, they suggested tricks that we were to use when we were filmed together.

In the meantime the record corporation, not knowing if the operation would be successful or not, decided to hurriedly release a Xmas album of old songs of the Beatles.
There was no photo on the cover, instead, an allegoric drawing which tells the entering of Phil from the Bonzos Dogs Band to the Beatles.
With this cover began the "hidden clues".

A Collection Of Beatles OLDIES but GOLDIES!
Phil's allegory on "A Collection Of Beatles OLDIES but GOLDIES!"

After plastic surgery John gave Phil the nickname of "Faul" which means Faux Paul or only Faul(t).

So our goodbye to Paul was "All you need is love" with the French national anthem at the start.

"Sgt.Pepper" was the first album with the photos of Faul, but they needed to be retouched.
This album cover is full of messages.
Many of those that you have discovered are true, others are not, others have been badly interpreted.
One of the most important is "Welcome The Rolling Stones" written with blood.

We hadn't had news about who it was that had killed Paul and John was sure that the Rolling Stones were involved as they were well-known as delinquents.
The crowd is made up of the people that Paul would have wanted at his funeral.

The following facts are true:
In the lowest row of flowers the word "Paul?" is written.
The goddess Shiva - not Kali! - indicates the old and new Paul - Alpha and Omega -
"BE AT LES o(utreau)" should be taken special note of - They lie at Outreau.

The band had its name changed; we were no longer called "THE BEATLES" but only "Beatles".
Most effectively in the bass drum there are mirrored words:

The references found by fans on the back cover are all correct; it is also true that the photo has been taken with the text printed on a transparent sheet as a target.
George points out the last completed song sung by Paul: "She's Leaving Home".

Phil has a wider mouth in comparison to Paul: it was decided that he would wear a moustache to cover the sides of his mouth.
To confuse the issue we all grew beards and mustaches so we would all seem "a bit older".

Phil Ackrill AKA Faul ( Faux Paul McCartney ) before after
Phil Ackrill with different make-ups

Faul, after the first great plastic surgery operation where the fat on his face was removed and his teeth all pulled out to be replaced, had to endure other plastic surgery sessions with some improvement although the result still wasn't perfect.
The surgeons altered his mouth again, his chin was fully rebuilt, his nose was made shorter, even his hands and parts of his body were reshaped and the eyelids, the cheeks and the chin had to be increased at first with gelatine-based make-up then later with time-limited under-skin filler injections when we were in public or when any photos were taken to replicate Paul's face with accuracy.
Faul wore contact lenses to darken his natural blue/green color eyes.
They were quite discreet but someone noticed that something was wrong: the surgeons were not able to properly duplicate the cleft chin that Paul had.
The work was completed by the excellent make-up artist Freddie Williamson.

Faul needed to wear make-up prostheses to change his ear positions and reproduce Paul's typical nose tip.

In spite of these operations traces of the old scar can still be seen on Faul's chin, along with ears which were oriented differently and mainly on the base of his nose that was reduced in lenght: now Faul's is smaller but is not shaped the same yet.

But above all the distance between the eyes is completely different: Paul's were much wider.
This is the main reason why many photos were retouched.

Faul slowly learned to play left handed and to sing better.

The counterpart of Brian could not hold up the role for very long: we had to get him out of the picture as quickly as possible while we worked on the legal aspects of how to manage the musical material that Paul had left to us.
And so Apple was born.
Here also John wanted to leave a strong reference to Paul: for "Apple Corp Ltd" read "A Paul Corp Ltd".

The trip in India was our attempt to put Paul's soul into Faul's body but of course it didn't succeed.
Yes, I know, it was a crazy idea, but we were almost going out of our heads with grief.

After some time we discovered that it was Brian and NOT Paul who was the main target of the killers.

The game was initially liked by John but as time went by the memory of Paul replaced his idea to not let the Beatles die or allow those who had killed Brian and Paul to win.
Without our knowing it, he inserted phrases into the tracks which whispered the truth.
He risked wrecking everything but the phrases were replaced in the next copies of the albums.

In spite of this John succeeded with a maximum amount of astuteness to publish the "White Album" poster which actually is the "White Book" of the whole matter.

When the material left by Paul was all published John found no reason to continue the Beatles, but he didn't want them to fold completely until he had inserted all the clues in the songs so that everything that had happened could be reconstructed.

The end of Faul's role was supposed to coincide with the end of the Beatles but Faul didn't respect the contract that had been made and, feeling he would be strongly protected by the secret service, published his first solo album which had actually been prepared by other musicians.

So we were tempted in the last album to reveal the truth but corporate managers and lawyers prevented it.

After the Beatles' broke up, John went to America to find Brian's killers.
During the second half of 1967 he had discovered they were members of the KKK.
After years of personal investigation John was getting close, very close to the truth.
He left Yoko and a few months later he was assassinated because he had requested not to have daily bodyguards with him anymore.

At last The Friends were together again forever.

Paul & John

In spite of his betrayal, we should give Faul an immense "thank you" however.
Thanks to him because above all he sacrificed his life for the Beatles; and also he helped prevent those fans who, if they had heard of Paul's death, would've killed themselves.

While this ruse has been financially successful to him, he has felt out of place quite a bit and, let the truth be known, many clues have actually been inserted by him!
Unfortunately, after the Beatles, he merely became a puppet in Linda's hands because she wanted to become a rockstar at any cost.
But in the end, despite it all, he became a very small McCartney or perhaps slightly better than small.

He wrote "McCartney the Second" on one of his album covers.

Dedicated to all those that helped keep this story alive until today.


On January 1964 James Paul McCartney met Sylvie Vartan.
During 1966 Sylvie Vartan was replaced too.

James Paul McCartney official fiancee was made aware of the true facts of the case and an annuity was given in recognition to her.

Phil Ackril also continued to impersonate Vivian Stanshall until 1995.

Sean Lennon said "My father was assassinated by an FBI-CIA connection".

Yoko Ono is a spy of the foreign office. She was part of John Lennon's assassination.
