Liam Gallagher once ''got inside the mind of a dove''.

The Beady Eye frontman claims he had an outer body experience where he felt what it was like to be a bird and fly high in the sky.

Although known for his hellraising antics, former Oasis star Liam insists he hadn't been experimenting with any illegal substances when he became a dove - which is a symbol of peace across the world.

He said: ''I once got inside the mind of a dove. A full-flying, living, breathing, dove. No, I wasn't taking anything. It flew off to high climes and it was very happy.''

The 40-year-old rocker is gearing up for the release of the band's second album 'BE' on June 10 and next week Beady Eye will be playing tracks from the record at London's iconic Abbey Road Studios.

The band - also comprised of Gem Archer, Chris Sharrock and Jay Mehler - will perform an intimate show at Studio 3 on Monday June 3 exclusively for Absolute Radio.

Studio 3 is synonymous with Liam's idols The Beatles and the group will be covering one of The Fab Four's tracks and the session - which will be attended by listeners lucky enough to win tickets - will also be filmed and will be available to watch on the Absolute Radio website and broadcast on Pete Donaldson's Evening Show on Thursday June 6.
