Rumors that Paul McCartney had died in and had been replaced by a lookalike had been in the air for many months before the release of Abbey Road, but this story had mainly just circulated on college campuses. From that point on the story took on a life of its own and within days it was reported in major newspapers and on network TV news.
The cover, which shows a photograph of the Beatles walking in step across the street away from Abbey Road Studios, resembles a funeral procession. Leading the procession is John w earing white, symbolizing the clergy. Ringo, dressed in black, is a pallbearer or an the undertaker. George, dressed in work clothes, is the gravedigger.
Paul, the corpse, is out of step with the other Beatles, leading with his right foot instead of with his left. Asserting that because people in many areas of the world are buried barefoot, Paul McCartney Dead: He is holding the cigarette in his right hand, even though the real Paul McCartney was left handed.
Actually Paul would have been 27 when Abbey Road was released. For those who thought that this was just too tantalizing to let pass, Paul Is Dead: True, in this light, Paul would have been 28 IF he had lived!. A police van was parked on the opposite side of the street in the Abbey Road cover photo.
To Joel Glazier the police van parked in the background is a reference to this. In The Walrus Was Paul: This shape appeared perfect at first glance, but upon closer examination, a slight deformity was evident.
In Joel Glazier visited the wall where this photo was taken and he counted 13 dots. His conclusion was that the Beatles had intentionally cropped the picture to reveal the number of remaining Beatles. Also, he noted that to the right of the tiles is a very odd shadow that looks like a skull.
The medley that dominates side 2 of the LP offered plenty of fodder for conspiracy theorists, as well.
This form was fairly novel in and the reputation of this piece has grown over the years. To Glazier this reference supported the story that Paul had been replaced by a lookalike. I was walking barefoot because it was a hot day.

The Volkswagen just happened to be parked there. Gone is the police van but the the white Volkswagen Beetle remains.
What happened was we did a cover for a record called Abbey Road and we—[applause] see, even the cover gets applause! The idea was to walk across the crossing and I showed up that day with sandals—flip flops—and so, it was so hot that I kicked them off and walked across barefooted.
