Paul McCartney once thought he was tried to contact by his dead mother; but actually, it was George Harrison, his Beatles co-singer, who is just playing a prank with him.
The Beatles stars were once trying to call the ghosts through an Ouija board – a flat tablet with letters, numbers and other symbols, which ethereal spirits can theoretically control by spelling out words – when they thought they had called Paul’s mother, who died a few years ago.
“We once did an Ouija board thing when we were kids. We weren’t really into all that, but somebody said, ‘let’s do it’, so we were touching the glass saying, ‘OK, nobody push it, OK?’ so then, suddenly, It’s moving,” Paul said.
“And it spells, ‘congratulations… son’ and we’re going ‘no!’ and is spells ‘congratulations… son…number…one…In NME’”
NME is a British music magazine and Paul realized his mother wouldn’t have known what NME was. He immediately suspected that someone was cheating.
“We were all, ‘Oh, f**k off’ and then there’s George, you know, laughing – he’s been pushing it all the time. Bad boy,” he added.
However, George was not wrong actually, despite the fact that there was no divine interference in the Ouija board. The Beatles went on to have 27 UK number one hits.
