Sammy Hagar abducted by aliens

If a celebrity hasn’t been newsworthy in years, they really turn up the ol’ nuttymeter when they release a memoir.

Sammy Hagar parachutes to Earth after rocking out with some little green men.

Sammy Hagar parachutes to Earth after rocking out with some little green men.

Former Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar is doing just that, telling MTV he was abducted by aliens.

Unfortunately for those born with ears, they didn’t grab him before the release of “I Can’t Drive 55.”

The book, “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock,” contains a passage about a “dream” that Hagar now says was real.

“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,” wrote Hagar.

In the interview he tells the curious reporter “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, ‘[Bleep], they downloaded something into me!’ Or they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment. ‘See what this guy knows.’”

Maybe they downloaded enough info to learn he’s bat-bleep crazy.

It was not his first experience with aliens.

“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 I don’t know what happened after that.”

Hagar also said, while performing, he would pick “strong” females out of the crowd to have sex with.

“Van Halen was a good-looking band,” said Hagar, who hopefully will see an ophthalmologist soon.

Hagar is no stranger to the weird. On Celebrity Ghost Stories, while wearing a Cabo Wabo tequila T-shirt, Hagar said he was visited by the ghost of his father, who was drunk, allegedly not on Cabo Wabo because this was decades before Sammy stewed up his first batch.

Hagar later learned his father died that night.

I find his ghost story a bit more believable, lots of people were seeing visions in Haight-Ashbury in 1969.

This is proof of the saying, “The insane don’t know they are insane…that’s why they are insane.” Also, I absolutely hated Clear Pepsi, that was Hagar’s downfall.

Joe Walsh – Now, there’s someone who could convince me aliens got him –

Hagar – it’s a lack of brown M&M’s that caused that hallucinogenic recollection!

Reminds me of the architect who said he designed all his famous hotels like Atlanta’s Marriot Marquis & Chicago’s Hilton, after female reproductive organs…he only admitted such after his retirment….is this guy retiring or has elevated to a status where he doesnt need to public approval and can say anything w/o fear of recourse or adverse music sales…anyway controversey sells & something tells me his fans are not trypical ordinary reasonable people…so maybe they will go for it…Also, aliens are abducting someone-y not him…he seems what aliens would go for-they always abduct the ones nobody will believe-just incase they talk….

Its called “sleep paralysis”. No such thing as real alien abduction. Maybe he’s looking for some new publicity.

Aliens did his hair, but I don’t care. He’s still a very good rocker and was good for VH at the time.

Maybe he really was abducted by aliens. People shouldn’t be so quick to judge. Makes me sick!

I love ya, Sammy…. you can TRULY rock…. you’ve made some kick-butt rock ‘n roll for 30 years…. but you’re out there, brother! lol

That being said, it doesn’t change my opinion of Sammy… I’m sure that ALL rock stars from the 70s and 80s who did a ton of drugs and alcohol have had various hallucinations before.

Actually, for the most part, Sammy has his ’stuff’ together…. great recording career, can still rock at 60-plus years old, a successful business with his beer and liquor company, a great looking family with a beautiful wife… yeah, he’s not doing too bad!

I still love listening to the Van Halen “Cabo Wabo” song at full volume in the summer — great stuff!!!

Step away from the Cabo Wabo, Sammy, and leave some for the rest of us.

[...] Halen was a good-looking band,” said Sammy Hagar. Van Halen’s “other” lead singer also reveals he was once kidnapped by aliens. [...]

Maybe it’s all true. He rocked with Montrose and still rocks today – at age 63. Also, a very successful businessman. Maybe he’s not so crazy after all.

Still like Van Halen better with Hagar than Roth, but maybe the aliens are making me feel that way.

Wonder how many of those “strong” females” he picked out of the crowds had Adam’s apples?

I read this book and this ain’t in there. The fact that he’s telling MTV this now tells me he’s making it up or doesn’t put too much stock into whatever kind of a dream it was. He does describe some foretelling dreams, which isn’t weird, and he believes in psychics, but that’s not so weird either. This is either blown up by the media or he is messing with ya.

This poor soul is confuse about his Drunk Ghost Father visiting him. The Drunk Ghost Father now claims that he was on some high power Mars Weed that he bought from the Alien Lizards whle attending a Republican Tea Party meeting..

You don’t read AC/DC’s Brain Johnson saying garbage like this. Which proves my point that AC/DC was a MUCH better band than Van Halen ever thought of being.
