Publisher's Summary

In 1969, a rumor erupted that Paul McCartney, “the cute Beatle”, had been replaced. Generations later, we see that the Beatles spent hundreds of hours making “Paul is Dead” clues but were required to deny it. What if “Billy Shears” really had replaced Paul and still plays that role today? How would he explain taking over the band? 

The memoirs, from Billy Shears’ perspective, reveals his conflict with John but also his delight in working with “Fifth Beatle” George Martin. With a shared commitment to quality, innovation, and a global agenda, their work transformed the planet, leading us through a psychedelic revolution that changed how we see ourselves. 

In July 2018 (28 months after George Martin passed away), his eldest son, Gregory Paul Martin, received an advance copy of the Nine After 9-09 Edition of the Memoirs of Billy Shears. He had known the Beatles’ original Paul since 1962 and still has dealings with “Sir Paul” today. Gregory generously found time in his overbooked schedule for this performance. 

To record this significant book, he thought it fitting to use the original recording equipment that his father, George Martin, had used with the Beatles. Sitting at that same historic equipment to record the memoirs, Gregory sometimes felt that he, too, had become Paul. It felt uncanny. 

Special thanks to sound engineers: William Shinker (British Grove Studios), Andy Cook (Red Planet Records), and Clint Ramon Harrigan (Ranch Trailing Post-Production). 

The Memoirs of Billy Shears: Nine After 9-09 Edition is also available in hardcover, paperback, and as an e-book. Printed versions have footnotes, word-stacking, and the world’s longest acrostic. In the US, get the hardcover from www.BillyShears.com. Elsewhere, find the paperback via Amazon. Whatever you believe about Paul, let this performance take you on the Beatles fantasy of a lifetime. It is your ultimate magical mystery. With this view of the Beatles’ inner-workings, you, and their songs, may never be the same.

Skips a lot

I bought the hardback copy and got the audiobook as a bonus but t he audio book skips very badly around chapter 50 ish, I could not listen to it, had to turn it off, even the online version skips so bad I could not listen to it. Fortunately I have the hardback, the book is excellent, only someone who was there during all these events could provide the details contained in the book. Paul is dead and has been since 66'.

Well researched and entertaining

It’s obvious that Thomas Uharriet did a lot of research, has a brilliant mind and knows how to tell a story. This audiobook was filled with an extreme amount of facts with beautifully written fictional stories. George Paul Martin performed the book as if it were a great work of art, not just a story to tell. Some of the details were beyond anything that I would have considered. You don’t get all the amazing acrostics, Word stacking or footnotes that you would find in the printed version, but definitely worth the time to listen.

Amazing...every time through!

This audiobook is very easy to listen to. The reading voice is very pleasant and realistic. This book is one I’ve listened to three times and going. It’s that fascinating. I highly recommend it as well as the hardcover, which includes even more than the audiobook. I have no affiliation. BillyShears.com to order hardcover accompaniment to this awesome audiobook. Hats off to Thomas Uharriet!!

Great read!

Voice was amazing. The story was great at the beginning but, toward the end it was a bit bland. The number chapters and the "song" chapters could have been left out. Overall a great read!
