A Man Playing Guitar All In White In A Street In Liverpool


About 10 years ago, when I was about 5, I lived in Anfield in Liverpool.

It was in the night between 9pm-10pm (I can't remember the exact time), I was looking out the window into my street lit up by yellow street lights. No one was there only a few cars parked up on the sides. Then I saw a man sitting on the side of the road, completely in white, playing a guitar, which was also all in white. However, I couldn't see the details of his face.

I saw his arm move slowly while he was strumming the guitar. I didn't know what to think at that time, since I was only 5. It seemed rather strange the way the man glowed, and it was so vivid, because he stood out like the moon with the night sky, and why did he glow so white if the street was only lit by yellow street lights...

Another strange thing was, I didn't hear any sound from the guitar he was playing, and the windows were open as far as I can remember. As I became more curious staring at the man, I turned to my mum to tell her to look at him but when she came to the window, and I turned back around to look again to point at where he was, he was gone.

That was all I could remember. I hope you enjoyed my experience, and thanks for reading.

Very cool story, I agree with it sounding like the entity was attached to the location, which leads me to say that my money says that the man you saw was John Lennon.

Wow, cool story.:D

I think that maybe it was a "good" spirit, and was just attached to that area, maybe he lived there before he passed away? And about the disappearing part, I've heard in most stories that ghosts do that when you go to show them to someone else...It's like they don't want you to know they're there...?

Great story, though.

Hey Mason. If you ever go back to where you used to live, try to see if you'll see the man again. It sounds like it was a ghost at peace but he was just attached to the place...

Thanks. No, I didn't see the man again. I don't live in Anfield anymore. So I don't think I'll ever see him again, unless I go back and wait in the night for him to come back, that's if I see him again XD

Wow! Cool story. Did you ever see the man again? If you did how old were you when you saw him again? 😊
