    Former Beatle Paul McCartney has told a British newspaper he believes he once saw God during a psychedelic trip.

    The 76-year-old star told The Sunday Times he was "humbled" by the experience.

    He said that "it was huge. A massive wall that I couldn't see the top of, and I was at the bottom. And anybody else would say it's just the drug, the hallucination, but we felt we had seen a higher thing."

    The Beatles' music was heavily influenced by psychedelic drugs in the band's final years.
