Paul McCartney reveals having “seen God” after using hallucinogenic drug

Paul McCartney has spoken quite openly about his relationship with drugs in youth. After revealing a marijuana possession jail and his addiction after the Beatles’ demise, the musician now reported an almost divine experience when using a type of narcotic.


McCartney told the Sunday Times about the use of DMT (or dimethyltryptamine) with Robert Fraser, a famous London art dealer who passed away in the 1980s. According to the former Beatle, the feeling was that he was witnessing “something bigger.”

Read what he said:

“We were immediately nailed to the couch. And I saw God, this incredible thing imposing, and I felt honored. And what I’m saying is that this moment didn’t change my life, but it was a clue. It was huge. A massive wall from which I could not see the top, and I was down there. And anyone else would say it was just the drug, the hallucination, but both Robert and I thought, ‘Did you see that?’ We felt we had seen something more important.”

How crazy, no? DMT was a famous substance in the 60s because of its hallucinogenic / psychedelic effect stronger than LSD and mushrooms.

McCartney launches next Friday (03) his seventeenth solo album, Egypt Station.
