5. Paul McCartney’s death in 1966

Sir James Paul McCartney is one of the founding members of The Beatles. He sang, wrote, and played bass for the group. McCartney sang live in 2018 and 2019 as a part of his Freshen Up Tour, while many people believe that he was not the actual person.

These people make claims that McCartney died in 1966 in a car crash, and to avoid people from knowing this, Beatles placed an imposter named “Billy Shears” in McCartney’s place. These people even pointed some clues such as some particular words from songs and some things done by so-called imposter McCartney indicate the real one is dead. Here are some clues stated by fans, which indicate the death of Paul McCartney.

4. Jay-Z, The Time Traveler

Jay-Z is a well-known rapper and the husband of one of the most beautiful women of this era Beyonce, but is he a Time Traveler as well? Based on a photograph from 1939, which was taken by Sid Grossman, where a person looks exactly like Jay-Z with the same type of mannerisms, he might be.

If he does not have the ability to travel back in time, then he might have been a vampire who didn’t age at all. However, there is a good chance that the person in the picture might somehow be related to Jay-Z of his ancestors.

3. Bob Marley’s Death

Almost everyone is familiar with Bob Marley, regardless of their age or music tastes. Recently, in the year 2018, there were some conspiracies on social media that Bob Marley has was killed by an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) named Bill Oxley, and Oxley confessed to doing so. According to that confession, it has been mentioned that CIA people injected the cancer viruses and bacteria into Marley’s body.

Even in the documentary available on Netflix, it has been mentioned that the CIA had Bob Marley under surveillance in the 1970s. However, people debunked this conspiracy theory knowing that there was no person named “Bill Oxley” who is/was in connection with the CIA. Along with that, the debunkers also found out that the photo used in the conspiracy story was a stock photo by some Polish photographer.

Regardless of the conspiracy, Marley died of melanoma. As there are some indications of an assassination attempt on Marley’s life by the CIA, it might be possible that the CIA was involved with his death, yet we can’t be sure of anything.

2. Is Elvis dead?

The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, died in 1977, yet most fans don’t agree about that. There was even a book written in 1988 about this by Gail Brewer-Giorgio, “Is Elvis Alive?” Many claims were made stating that some have seen him buying a fuse in Michigan, whereas some say he was a background extra in the movie Home Alone.

While the coffin of Elvis was heavy because it was made of copper, some fans say that he was alive in that while it had a cooling system inside that. Most fans even claim that Elvis managed to get a body double for the funeral as it didn’t look like him at all. There is a good chance that his face changed because of excessive drug use. However, even today, many fans say that he didn’t die but faked his death for avoiding the pressure from his fame.

Gene Simmons, who happens to be the bassist and frontman of the rock band KISS, is said to have a weird tongue. Some people even say that he had a cow’s tongue grafted to his tongue to extend it, and he even got his mouth enlarged in the process. However, the way he waggles his tongue surely makes it seem like it is not ordinary, and Simmons specifically admits that this is the favorite rumor about him.
