18. Was Paul McCartney replaced by a lookalike? With Deborah Frances-White
In June this year one of the world’s most famous musicians headlined Glastonbury. It was hailed as a history-making set, spanned nearly three hours, and featured iconic Beatles songs, massive pyrotechnics, and guest performers. The organisers of Glastonbury will have you believe this man was Paul McCartney, but was it really?
For over 50 years there has been speculation that the real Paul McCartney died in a car crash and was replaced by a lookalike, and that we have this stand-in Paul to thank for everything since 1966. Comedian, broadcaster, and lifelong Beatles fan Deborah Frances-White joins James and Jol this week to explore this bizarre conspiracy.
Expect your classic stoner questions, from what do you see when you hold a mirror up to the cover of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’, to what ‘Revolution 9’ sounds like played backwards. No Beatle-shaped stone is left unturned, as we decided whether it really was Macca who graced that stage so masterfully at Glastonbury.
Deborah Frances-White is the host of the hugely successful The Guilty Feminist podcast.
