Ghosts & Hauntings

Alice Cooper and Cher among singers who have encountered a ghost

The world of music has seen more than its fair share of ghost sightings and paranormal experiences over the years.
It seems that just about everyone in the public eye is claiming to have seen or experienced something supernatural these days and perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in the music industry.

While it is easy to dismiss some of these as the consequences of too much drink or drugs, many famous singers and songwriters remain adamant that they have personally witnessed something paranormal and are not afraid to discuss it in public when asked.

American rock singer Alice Cooper, for example, has previously talked about experiencing poltergeist activity during his time writing music with Aerosmith's Joe Perry in New York.

The phenomenon, which included furniture being moved around by an unseen force and the feeling of a hand touching the shoulder, was later attributed to the ghost of a boy who died nearby.

Elsewhere, singer Cher has often mentioned her belief that she has been visited by the ghost of her late ex-husband Sonny Bono who was killed in 1998 in a skiing accident.
"I love ghosts," she said. "I actually think that Sonny makes a light go on. I have a beautiful chandelier that he makes the light go on when it is impossible, there is no power on."

"I love ghosts, I prefer ghosts to some people."

Elton John is another well known singer to have had a paranormal experience.

"I did see a ghost once," he told The Irish Times back in 2019. "I went to bed and felt something pressing down on my chest. I was too terrified to move."

"So, strictly speaking, I haven't seen a ghost, but I have been sat on by one."

His story sounds a bit like a case of sleep paralysis - but as it stands, we'll never know for sure.

I'm not surprised att all. With so much drugs in the rock'n'roll world, I wouldn't be surprised if they saw a living dinosaurs too.

These people are artists. Their brain is organized in a different way, which influences their perception of what most people call reality.
