Abbey Road album cover. Controversy: “Paul is dead†conspiracy theorists maintain that the Paul McCartney in the photo is actually an impostor — perhaps a McCartney lookalike named William Shears — and that the album cover is full of hidden clues and morbid symbolism, including the left-handed Mr. McCartney holding a cigarette in his right hand and being out of step with his bandmates. Verdict: Real photo. Bogus conspiracy theory. Never mind Mr. McCartney’s prolific post-“death†musical career — no self-respecting global conspiracy dedicated to maintaining the illusion that a supposedly deceased artist as talented as Mr. McCartney was still alive would ever have allowed “Wonderful Christmastime†to be released.
