FOXNews on celebrity death hoaxes

Any list worth its salt would have to include Paul's "death" from so many years ago.

FOX duly complies:
The most famous celebrity death hoax of all time is that the Beatles' Paul McCartney died in a car accident in 1966 and was replaced by a look-alike. Although the story originated in the Drake University paper in September 1969, it spread across the globe following a Michigan radio show broadcast just a few weeks later. Conspiracy theorists have pointed to the many clues proving the Beatle's death, including lyrical hints ("He didn't notice that the lights had changed" from "A Day in the Life"), record cover evidence (Paul walks shoeless and out of step with his bandmates on the "Abbey Road" cover), and audible smoking guns (some say they hear the words, "Turn me on, dead man" when playing "Revolution Nine" backward).
