During an interview with The Sunday Times, Paul McCartney, formerly a member of The Beatles, revealed that he once saw God during a psychedelic trip. The 76-year-old bass player said the experience was “humbling.”
The singer-songwriter described it as “huge,” and a “massive wall” they couldn’t see over, where he was “at the bottom.” According to the legendary songster, many people would explain it away as just a “hallucination,” but him and the rest of his friends “saw a higher thing.”
As fans of the legendary British rock band know, their music was heavily influenced by psychedelic drugs, especially in the final period of their discography
For instance, their infamous track, “Yellow Submarine,” was supposedly inspired by experiences while on LSD. Additionally, they had a song called, “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds,” which is a moniker for “L.S.D.”
The singer also added that the experiences he had while under the influence, allowed him to see that his loved ones, including his deceased wife, Linda, are “looking down” on him from the heavens.
Currently, Paul is arguably one of music’s most popular acts and is in the middle of a promotional tour for his latest record. Unfortunately, his former bandmate and best friend, John Lennon, isn’t able to hear his new music today, as he was killed by Mark David Chapman in 1980.
As it was previously reported, the court denied parole for Mark Chapman for the tenth time in a row, after the deranged attention-seeking gunman shot and killed John Lennon on the 8th of December, 1980.
Approximately two years ago, New York’s state parole board said Mr. Chapman wasn’t permitted to leave the prison, because his actions costing John Lennon his life were “selfish and evil.” Previously, Mark admitted he shot and killed John because he wanted to become famous, and had also considered murdering Elizabeth Taylor, but didn’t due to the difficulties of their apartment buildings.
