5 More Music Conspiracies That You Didn't Know

The Paul McCartney Death Theory

Despite Sir James Paul McCartney, co-lead vocalist and bassist for the Beatles, performing live as recently as 2019, some fans insist that the real McCartney died in a car crash in 1966 and was replaced by an impostor named Billy Shears. This theory originated from interpretations of Beatles song lyrics and album covers, but the evidence is largely circumstantial.

Jay-Z, the Time Traveller

Rapper and producer Shawn Corey Carter, better known as Jay-Z, has been the subject of various conspiracy theories, the strangest of which suggests he can time travel. This theory was sparked by a 1939 photograph of a man bearing a striking resemblance to Jay-Z. Some fans even suggest Jay-Z might be a vampire, explaining his apparent immortality.
