Monaghan Took Drugs To Copy The Beatles

LOST star DOMINIC MONAGHAN is such a huge fan of THE BEATLES he once experimented with marijuana and hallucinogenic drugs to be like his hero JOHN LENNON.

Monaghan, who plays a heroin addict in the hit TV series, admits his love of the 1960s band has led him astray.

He says, "I came to understand that The Beatles grew a lot and understood a lot about themselves through taking certain drugs.

"There's something very rewarding and sobering about getting involved with certain hallucinogens that strip away any sense of ego."

But Monaghan knows his limits. Unlike his Lost character, the actor views heroin as "the ultimate nightmare. You don't hear many happy heroin stories."

It is important to remember that the Beatles never released anything that they did whilst under the influence. Because whenever they did they found that they had to do it all again. So therefore the final results of everything they actually recorded was not as result of drugs.
