Super fun listen!

This is a really entertaining fictional account of Billy Campbell getting the gig after Paul McCartney's alleged unfortunate passing in a car wreck. This premise is based on the whole "Paul is Dead" conspiracy theory that started at a Detroit radio station in 1969. It's an energetic listen and the author's belief in the theory comes through. I now want to go find more clues as to where the actual theory started. I imagine looking at photos from the time should really tell the tale. Being in bands my whole life, I know relationships get built and whether you like your band members or not, there is always a connection. Playing off a band member death would be next to impossible. Conspiracy theory validity aside, it's a really light and fun listen. So appreciated during these crazy times.
