Liam Gallagher haunted by Lennon’s ghost.

A while back in June, we posted several video clips of Oasis on all-things Beatle.  In the first video clip, Liam talks about all things Lennon, and how highly he holds Lennon.  I believe he calls John and his work “his alphabet.”  No wonder Lennon is haunting him.

It is interesting to see what I like to call “professional hero worship.”  This is not to say that as a rock and roll band, Oasis does not stand on their own merits.  To me, however, their sound is firmly rooted in The Beatles.  It is not so much that they are influenced by the group.  It seems that they have tried to become the Beatles for the 21st Century. 

I must put a disclaimer with this post…I am a huge Oasis fan, and don’t mean to take anything away from them, but it’s at times too much hero worship. 

Apparently, they can’t shake Johnny’s ghost either.

Here’s what we’ve read.

It seems like there’s a celebrity ghost lurking around in London and he definitely wants his presence to be known.

Liam Gallagher claims he was once visited by the ghost of his idol John Lennon.

The Oasis singer insists the late Beatle appeared to him as an apparition while he was staying at a friend’s house years ago in his hometown of Manchester. Rather than be spooked by the specter, Liam was in awe of his hero.

He said, “I was in Manchester at a mate’s house having a sleep. I remember getting up and feeling really weird. I turned round and there I was, lying on the bed, and I sort of fell back into my body. There was a presence there and it was him, Lennon.”

Liam is not the only person convinced the ghost of Lennon has contacted them. The music legend’s former band mate Paul McCartney is convinced he haunted the recording of the 1995 Beatles single “Free As A Bird” – in the form of a white peacock.

McCartney, Ringo Starr and the late George Harrison were posing for a photograph outside the studio where the track was recorded when the bird wandered in shot at the last minute.

McCartney said, “I said to the other guys, ‘That’s John!’ Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around. We felt that all the way through the recording.”

Lennon was shot dead in 1980 by deranged fan Mark Chapman as he entered the Dakota building in New York. He was 40 years old.

  1. I’d love to believe the peacock thing – didn’t Julian once say that John told him he would come into a room as a white dove, if he should ever pass ?
