Liam Gallagher

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 spectre, 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 bandmate Sir 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 aged 40.
