Former Beatle Paul McCartney believes he once saw God during a psychedelic trip. The 76-year-old star told the Sunday Times (paywall) that he was "humbled" by the experience. He said that "it was huge. A massive wall that I couldn't see the top of, and I was at the bottom. And anybody else would say it's just the drug, the hallucination, but we felt we had seen a higher thing." He continues, per the Guardian: "We were immediately nailed to the sofa. And I saw God, this amazing towering thing, and I was humbled. And what I’m saying is, that moment didn’t turn my life around, but it was a clue."
McCartney also spoke of allowing himself to believe that his lost loved ones, including his late wife Linda, are "looking down" on him, reports the AP. The singer is promoting a new album and a tour. He remains one of music's most popular concert acts. (A few years ago, McCartney told an interviewer that he and John Lennon must have forgotten dozens of songs.)
