Sammy Hagar: I Really Think I Was Contacted by Aliens

Long before there was Van Halen, there may have been Van Alien.

Sammy Hagar, the onetime lead singer of the heavy metal band, writes in his new memoir that he once dreamed he was contacted by aliens in the foothills above Fontana, Calif.

But was it really a dream?

“That happened. That friggin’ happened, I’ll tell you right now,” the rocker, 62, tells MTV Hive.

In his new book Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock, he writes that he saw a ship and two creatures, who then “tapped into my mind through some kind of mysterious wireless connection.”

“It was a download situation,” he says. “This was long before computers or any kind of wireless. There weren’t even wireless telephones.”

And it wasn’t the first time. He says he left out of the book another, earlier close encounter that happened when he was 4 years old.

“One time I saw what I considered to be, well, at the time I thought it was a car with no wheels,” he says. “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.”

He also says he’s indulged in lots of drugs and booze over the years, but never got too far out of control. “I just have a natural stop button,” he says.
