‘The Beatles’ have given us some of the most memorable classics which are still a part of our playlist. However, behind the music scene, the band’s ordeal with drugs was no secret. The band’s singer Paul McCartney recently opened up on one of his experiences after a drug intake. As per reports, the 76-year-old Beatles singer said that he saw God during one of his drug trips.

While describing his experience, Paul McCartney reportedly said that he saw an “amazing towering figure” and was humbled. As per reports, McCartney stated that it was huge like a massive wall which he couldn't’ see the top of.

He further went on to add that while anyone else would have thought that it was the impact of the drug, but at that point, both he and the person accompanying him were sure that they had seen “something higher” and credited the incident as the foundation of his faith. McCartney also reportedly said that his ex-wife Linda, who passed away after losing a battle to breast cancer in 1998, came back as a white squirrel "to give him a sign”.

He said that it was a thrilling moment for him. McCartney also spoke about allowing himself to believe that his lost loved ones, including his late wife Linda, are "looking down" on him. The Beatles' music was allegedly heavily influenced by psychedelic drugs in the band's final years.
