In this paper, we show the results of a stylometric analysis conducted on Paul McCartney's interview transcriptions using three different approaches in order to detect differences and similarities in his speeches before and after 9th November 1966, the date of his supposed death. Our research is based on the Let IT Corpus, a corpus of Paul McCartney's Interview Transcriptions. The corpus is a collection of texts from the Beatles Interviews Database, a repertoire of one-hundred sixty-three Beatles' interviews freely available on the Web and from other interviews available on YouTube.

Our research is based on the Let IT Corpus, a corpus of Paul McCartney's Interview Transcriptions. The corpus is a collection of texts from the Beatles Interviews Database, a repertoire of one-hundred sixty-three Beatles' interviews freely available on the Web and from other interviews available on YouTube.
