Grammy award-winning singer, Sir Elton John has shared an experience that he says made him see God after smoking weed during a music session.
The 73-year-old revealed that the smoking weed experience had occurred during a night when he was listening to electronic dance music.
The singer said that he had tripped due to the effect of the weed, but not before being taken to a “higher place” where he “saw God”.
According to Elton John, the song which was playing during this period was the German dance album Trans-Europe Express by Kraftwerk.
“I love that because it was the first record I ever heard that really sounded German as far as pop music went.
“I remember smoking a joint and listening to it on really loud speakers and I thought I saw God during that album.”
