In the fall of 1969, the story seemed to come out of nowhere.  Was Beatle Paul McCartney dead?    This was no ordinary death rumor. It was believed that McCartney had died years earlier and been replaced by a lookalike.  What's more, the surviving Beatles were thought to have planted "clues" to his death on their record albums.    "Paul-Is-Dead" mania swept the United States as people attempted to solve the riddle of Paul's alleged demise.   How did all of this happen?   Beatles scholar and journalist Andru J Reeve has gotten to the bottom of this intrigue. After years of research, Reeve has assembled TURN ME ON, DEAD MAN  to tell the strangest tale ever in the history of rock 'n' roll.
