Haunted Rock Stars
Perhaps it's their creative and artistic temperament that makes musicians more sensitive to the paranormal spirit world as many of them have proclaimed to seeing ghosts and having encounters with strange phenomena for which they can find no logical explanation.
A Haunted Mansion?
World wide rock/pop superstar Sting and his wife Trudie Styler fled their luxury London mansion in terror after living there only 18 months. Apparently the house was haunted by a woman and child, when she was sighted the room would go icy cold. Matters turned really sinister however when a carving knife was thrown so hard in their kitchen by unseen hands that it embedded itself in a far wall. Sting was reported to have said at the time -- "I'm absolutely terrified. I now believe there are things out there but I have no explanation for them."
John Lennon's Ghost
A ghost that has a busy haunting schedule would appear to be the spirit of John Lennon. Two famous musicians both claim to have seen or sensed the spirit of the late Lennon around them.
Oasis singer, Liam Gallagher, said he encountered the dead star whilst staying at friend's house in Manchester. He says "I was at mate's house having a sleep. I remember getting up and feeling really weird. I turned around and I sort of fell back into my body. There was definitely a strange presence there and I know it was him, John Lennon."
Paul McCartney, ex-Beatle, says along with the late George Harrison & Ringo Star that they used to sense the playful spirit of John Lennon when they were recording Lennon's song as 'Free As A Bird'. He added that "there were lots of odd occurrences in the studio whilst recording - noises that shouldn't have been there and equipment going haywire. There was just an overall feeling that John was around."
Belinda Carlisle reports that she once saw a 'misty shape' hovering over her as she lay in bed one night. She also claims that when she was only 17, she had a strange out of body experience whilst staying at her parents home. She levitated completely out of her bed!
Rock/pop star Robbie Williams used to live at Whithurst Hall, West Sussex, in the UK . The mansion that had cost him $7 million had once belonged to former Beatle Ringo Star. Soon after moving in he began to see the ghost of an old woman sitting in a chair. The place also had several other resident spooks and a reputation amongst the local community for being somewhere it is better not to venture to after dark. Robbie despite declaring a strong interest in the paranormal did not own the property for too long!
