Rocker Suzi Quatro shocked a journalist during a recent interview by claiming to be in communication with the woman's dead grandmother.
The 1970s singer, who has long claimed to possess psychic abilities, stopped a chat with Shona Sibary of Britain's Daily Mail newspaper midway through to pass on a message from the afterlife.
Quatro, 63, closed her eyes and began humming before telling the reporter, "I need to tell you something... Your grandmother wants you to stop being so angry about everything and try to understand that this stage in your life is a learning curve, a clue you must unravel to become a better person.'"
She went on to explain the outburst, adding, "That's not even me speaking. Those aren't the words I would use... Ever since I was a child I've just had this sense that I'm connected to the spiritual world... I can hear voices - not all the time - but when I'm with certain people it sometimes comes through."
Sibary, whose grandmother passed away eight years ago, described the experience in her write-up of the interview, explaining, "I don't know whether to be more shocked at the suggestion that Suzi believes she can communicate with the dead or that my grandmother - whose interests included Vermouth and knitting - appears to have chosen a formerly mullet-haired, leather-clad Seventies rock chick to impart wisdom from the other side."
