    It seems like there are plenty of conspiracy theories out there. One famous conspiracy (or practical joke, or urban legend) was that Paul McCartney died in the 60s. I've heard of a conspiracy where Paul McCartney was replaced by a look-alike (who, of course, went on to have a successful solo music career after The Beatles):
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_is_dead

    One time I was listening to a radio show where they had a guest on talking about The Beatles, and at one point I think he was he was discussing the "Paul Is Dead" conspiracy - He said in the intro to their song "Come Together", John Lennon was whispering "shoot me". I never thought that's what he was saying, and on the radio show, he played a sample, and it sounded like they had processed the audio to "enhance" it a bit to make it sound like that's what he was saying. In the actual song (and I played my own copy later), I always just heard "shhhhh". I'm wondering if "shoot me" is the actual lyric?

    What other music/musician/band conspiracy theories are you aware of?

    They replace others with clones after they are killed or died.

    I heard one that Laurel Canyon scene in the 60’s was all part of CIA mind control experiment to get kids to take LSD and something like Joplin and Morrison’s parents were military so they were somehow linked... ya. I’m sure the CIA did try to.... wait this is getting political me thinks. Lol oh yea Jimi Hendrix was killed by his Manager because wine was found in his lungs...

    If a conspiracy theory isn't posted, is that evidence there is a conspiracy to hide the conspiracy?

    My take on this one is that Jim actually DID fake his death (forged signature on the death certificate, nobody was allowed to see the body, etc), intending to "come back" after 10 years -- only he actually DID die of an accidental overdose a few years later and never got the chance :(
