John Lennon's son claims a ghostly visit from his father

Filed under: Just For Dads, Celeb Kids

Shortly before magician Harry Houdini died in 1926, he made a promise to his wife that if it were in any way possible, he would contact her from the afterlife. They devised a secret message that only they would know to serve as proof that it was really him. He never contacted his bride and after ten years of séances, she gave up waiting for him.

According to a source, John Lennon made a similar pact with his son, Julian. This source tells Britain's Daily Express newspaper that not long before Lennon was murdered in 1980, he told his son Julian, 'If anything ever happens to me, look for a white feather and you will know I am there for you, always looking out for you'.

Did Lennon manage to do what Houdini couldn't? According to this source, he did. When 44-year-old Julian was in Australia working on Whaledreamers, a film about the plight of whales and the Earth's oceans, he had a spooky encounter. He was participating in an ancient ceremony with an Aboriginal tribe when he was handed a white feather by a tribal elder. The source says, "It may sound strange but that was a very weird and emotional moment for Julian. He was left speechless."

Julian isn't the only one who thinks the former Beatle has made contact from the grave. Paul McCartney tells a story about a white peacock who appeared during the 1995 recording of the Beatle's Free as a Bird. As the three remaining Beatles posed for a photo, the bird walked into the shot. Paul said: "That was John. Spooky, eh? It was like John was hanging around." As the Beatles were wont to do, they added some backwards recordings to the end of the single. When they played it back, Paul says they heard "zzzwrk nggggwaaahhh jooohn lennnnnon qwwwrk."

Spooky and cool.
