Halloween is just around the corner, so “Rolling Stone” put together a list of 13 musicians who have talked about paranormal experiences that they’ve had. Here are six highlights:
1. Kendrick Lamar claims he was visited by the ghost of Tupac, who told him, quote, “Keep doing what you doing, don’t let my music die.” So, this encounter was less SCARY and more COCKY.
(I remember when the ghost of Dick Clark woke me up and said that I was the best living radio personality EVER.)
2. Ace Frehley from KISS says his Westchester, New York house was haunted, and that he’d seen things moving around. There were also TWO occasions where his wife and daughter were violently pushed down a staircase.
3. A few years ago, Kesha claimed that she once had sex with a ghost. Quote, “There was this weird energy . . . and it used to keep me [up] at night and wake me up. And it progressed into this dark, sexual spirit. It did scare me, but that’s part of the fun of it.”
4. Alice Cooper had an encounter when writing songs with Joe Perry from Aerosmith at an abandoned house in New York. And they were SOBER at the time. Alice heard furniture being dragged in the basement, and when he went to investigate, he felt the pressure of a hand on his back.
5. Aaron Carter didn’t believe in an afterlife, so as his grandma was dying, she gave him a candle and told him to light it after she’d passed. He did, and when he blew it out, her ghost appeared in the room and said, “I told you.”
6. Meat Loaf’s haunting happened when he was recording “Bat Out of Hell”. He was staying at a house with Todd Rundgren, and he saw a woman in white. Things ramped up to the point where the ghost even ripped the sheets off his bed.
