I keep saying on this blog that it is highly unlikely that aliens would abduct us, because the way we treat the planet, is dumb most times, why would aliens WANT to abduct us?
That’s a myth that only the lads of Men in Black III and Hollywood can truly shed light on, in future fantasy movie installments. Who doesn’t like a good alien movie?
For example, at the moment I am legal in the USA. In two months time though, I won’t be, I’ll be ‘an alien’ in the USA, so Sammy Hagar’s book brings a smile with his talk of alien mentions in it.
Anyway, rocker Sammy Hagar was interviewed recently, talking about his tell all memoir book, Red: My Uncensored Life. He’s what he says to MTV via Antcomic:
Relevant Excerpt from Interview
Okay, let’s just cut to the chase. I’m just going to come out and ask it. Have you ever been abducted by aliens?
I think I have.
What? Really? I was kidding. You seriously believe that?
[Laughs.] Now you’re making me sound like a crazy person.
How is that crazy? I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened to you.
Remember the story in the book, where I have a dream about being contacted by aliens in the foothills above Fontana?
Yeah, yeah, I’ve got the page right here. “I saw a ship and two creatures inside of this ship… And they were connected to me, tapped into my mind through some kind of mysterious wireless connection.” You’re telling me that wasn’t a dream?
That’s right. It was real. [Aliens] were plugged into me. It was a download situation. This was long before computers or any kind of wireless. There weren’t even wireless telephones. Looking back now, it was like, “Fuck, they downloaded something into me!” Or they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment. “See what this guy knows.”
And this actually happened?
That happened. That friggin’ happened, I’ll tell you right now. Another thing happened when I was about four that I didn’t put into the book. One time I saw what I considered to be, well, at the time I thought it was a car with no wheels. We lived out in the country and I saw this thing floating across a field, creating this big dust storm. I threw rocks at it and shit. And I don’t know what happened after that.
You blacked out?
I guess. I just have no memory of it. And that wasn’t a dream. It was during daylight.
I can understand your apprehension. Alien abduction is a tough sell.
Especially back a few decades ago, when this stuff happened to me. I couldn’t talk about it because I didn’t know how to explain it. I didn’t understand the technology. But now I’m pretty sure it was a wireless situation. Either a download or upload. They were tapped into my brain and the knowledge was transferred back and forth. I could see them and everything while it was happening. There was a visual involved, almost like … I don’t know. [Laughs.] Don’t get me going!
In addition Caroline Kellog of the Los Angeles Times writes of Sammy’s book: ‘”Sammy Hagar can’t drive 55, but he can have mind-melds with aliens, according to his new memoir, “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock.” It happened around 1970, when Hagar was a struggling musician on welfare with a wife and small child, living in Los Angeles before moving to San Francisco. Hagar writes:
“I was lying in bed one night at the Anastasia Street place in Fontana, asleep, dreaming. I saw a ship and two creatures inside of this ship. I couldn’t see their faces. I just knew that there were two intelligent creatures, sitting up in a craft in the Lytle Creek forest area about twelve miles away in the foothills above Fontana. And they were connected to me, tapped into my mind through some kind of mysterious wireless connection. I was kind of waking up. They said, in their communication to each other, no words spoke, “Oh, he’s waking up. We’ve got to go.”…. I didn’t even know the word “UFO.” I didn’t know my astrological sign. I didn’t know anything about astronomy or numerology or anything. But I dug into it.”
In the book, cowritten with Joel Selvin, Hagar also writes about his Cabo Wabo nightclubs and tequila brand, but Hagar’s stories of being a musician are the most interesting (except maybe the aliens part).
Hagar is particularly candid about his time playing with Van Halen, which was both good and bad. Rolling Stone has an exclusive excerpt, in which Hagar praises Eddie Van Halen and writes rivetingly (and often profanely) about his dissipation. In one passage, Hagar writes:
“He told me he cured himself by having pieces of his tongue liquefied and injected into his body. He also told me when he had his hip replacement, he stayed awake through the operation and helped the doctors drill the hole. What a fruitcake.”
Hagar is currently on tour — book tour, that is — with “Red.” Angelenos who missed him at Book Soup on Sunday can catch him at Barnes & Noble in Hungtington Beach on Monday at 7 p.m.’
Crazy bizarre stuff! Hope he sells the book. That’s the goal to test the market for a Van Halen return concert.
