The Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle is so susceptible to supernatural hauntings, she once witnessed a phantom man on a horse enter her bedroom.

The gravel-voiced singer - then 15 - was drifting in and out of consciousness when the paranormal vision woke her, but she was so used to such bizarre encounters, she refused to let the ghostly presence disturb her.

She says, "I was lying in bed one night, and I saw a man on a horse ride through my room. I heard him coming and then there was this totally bummed out dude - sighing and grunting.

"It was very strange. Just a man up close on a horse in my room. I've always been susceptible to that, and I've been seeing stuff since I was a kid so it wasn't such a big deal - I was pretty calm. I don't mind them."
