Gary Shepherd denies that father, Bill Shepherd, was Faul McCartney



Some Paul is Dead researchers think that Bill Shepherd of Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots may have served as a Faul McCartney. However, Gary Shepherd, his son, denies that his father ever stood in for Paul McCartney. He  posted this publicly:

"Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots was the exploitation album by my father to cash in on Merseymania - the band never existed outside of a studio and the songs credited to my father Bill Shepherd were pastiche Beatles copies. My father went on to produce early Bee Gees songs in Australia, and then back in England became their main arranger and orchestrator for their early big hits. He was about 5 foot 8 inches tall and was not Paul McCartney's replacement. When people keep producing the Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots albums (there were 2 and they are pretty awful) as if this is evidence of a replacement for Paul it clearly shows up the lack of any proof as you have to question all the other "evidence" stated as "facts" - I know Bill Shepherd was not the replacement Beatle so don't keep bringing these very poor cash in albums and a non existent band as part of the "evidence." ... Bill Shepherd and Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots not being part of the Paul conspiracy is a fact as his family all know. Whether the Beatles knew about Billy Pepper and the Pepperpots and used it for the Sgt Pepper name as an ironic joke we don't know..." 
~  Gary Shepherd

If this is true, then we can rule out Bill Shepherd as a Paul replacement. Of course, someone stood in for Paul after he was disappeared. I think there is good evidence that Denny Laine was at least an early, temporary Faul, if not a permanent replacement.

  1. I never bought into the Bill Shepphard of Billy and the Pepper pots being faul. They don't look a like or soundalike.their style and voices are diffrent.

    I also don't think Denny Lane was Faul either. He is a much smaller man than faul and his voice sounds different than Faul. Also Denny Lane was in Wings with Bill

    Maybe Denny lane was an old bandmate of faul?

  2. I haven't researched William Shepherd (Billy Pepper); however, wondering is there any evidence of him after the late 60's. I live close to the "Bee Gees" memorial walk in Qld Australia. I will check it for clues.

    1. sorry, but anyone who doesn't think Paul was replaced w/ all of the evidence (forensics, voiceprints, etc) is a retard.

    2. It's pretty obvious when you compare photos. Sun king's and the Italian forensics evidence are convincing as well.

    2. I would like to think he's buried somewhere in Liverpool. John Did say he Buried Paul at the end of Strawberry fields.

    3. Right, thanks. And isn't Strawberry Fields a cemetery? Can anyone check the cemetery's plot layout records? Are there any unmarked graves? Is the McCartney family buried there? Any (even redacted) records of burials in 1966?

    4. Actually, on further thought, I think if Paul's death were kept secret, he would have been cremated. Possibly his brother has the urn.

  6. Macartney was supposedly killed in a fatal car accident in an Aston Martin car he owned at the time. Has anyone ever followed up or traced the car. Given it was a quality marque & was owned by paul its value given its provenance would make it extremely valuable. So where is it now. If there was no car crash there must be a paper trail or record of who it was sold to or what became of it. Im curious if yhis avenue was ever followed up on as it would shed light on what became of it after paul owned it or is this a mystery too? Has an attempt ever been made to find out about the car. As stated it would be an iconic and historic car to own.
