In 1999, actor David Strickland, best known for his role on the NBC sitcom “Suddenly Susan,” committed suicide in room 20 of the Oasis Motel in Las Vegas. More than a decade later, Zak Bagans, the host and lead investigator for the hit TV series Ghost Adventures, spent hours in that very room attempting to establish communication with Strickland’s departed soul. The results of that investigation can be heard on the track “Room 20” from NecroFusion, the upcoming album from Bagans and musical partner, Lords of Acid’s Praga Khan, due out October 23rd.
According to Bagans, “After hours of recording sessions, I felt a sudden, intense presence of energy, and I knew I was not alone. I began communicating with mind-blowing responses. One of the responses I got was when I said ‘hello’ to Strickland, and he replied ‘hi, Zak.’ I asked if he could hear me and he said ‘yeah.’ At this point, I was getting intelligent responses, one after the other. I asked how many other spirits were present, and a female voice began shooting off numbers for me – ‘seven, eight’ – at which time I asked ‘Do you see other dead people?’ And Strickland’s voice came through again, telling me he ‘sees the Lord.’ I asked him if he knew where he was, and said ‘Oasis.’ This was one of the most powerful spirit communication sessions I have ever conducted.”
