MYSTERY WIRE — Rocker Sammy Hagar met with the media yesterday in Las Vegas during a promotional stop and opened up about his alien abduction he says took place in almost 60 years ago. Hagar is currently 73-years-old.
Hagar was commemorating the launch of Sammy’s Beach Bar Cocktail Co. sparkling rum cocktails by doing a rooftop concert overlooking the Las Vegas Strip. Hagar is also gearing up for his new residency at The STRAT later this fall. “Sammy Hagar And Friends” will feature Hagar performing with a rotating circle of other musicians.

Sammy Hagar, I have to ask you the story that came out, I think it is actually in your book, talking about being abducted by aliens. Is that true? And can you expand on that story for us?
Yes, it is true. You don’t go around saying stuff like that, you know, people call you a nut. You know, everybody that’s ever asked me about that and expects me to try to backpedal. 100% happened. Four o’clock in the morning, pitch black, dead sleep. I felt like I was being programmed like someone’s tapping into me like it was a string from my head to 13 miles up on a mountain place called Lau Creek. And I know right where it was, these little foothills. There was an object there. There was two people in it, two creatures in it. And it was 19, I want to say it was 64, 65.
So there was no remote control, no satellites, there was no computers. But I sensed they were tapping into me somehow. And they went, “Oh, he’s waking up,” augmented telepathy, you know, they just did the communication when my head is waking up. They yelled out a numerical code, not of our numerical system, (speaks the alien sounds he heard). And it went, and I can almost feel the plug, like an electrical charge leaving, zapped into their ship, put a light on in this ship where I see shadows of these creatures. And I woke up in my house and my bed. My room was infinity white, I couldn’t move, I was completely paralyzed, my eyes were open, and all sudden, BAM! It just went black. It was the time it was. I broke sweat and I was shaking and I felt like my body was so drained.
And from that moment on, I believed in UFOs. I started looking into astronomy, I became a junior astronomer. And I started figuring out … till before that day, I never even looked at the sky and thought of anything except for there was a lot of stars outside. But yeah, very unique experience. And from that day on I believe hard and you know the universe and UFOs and creatures, the thought of us being the only ones in this giant universe when you know a little bit about astronomy. You know how big the universe is and what a speck of nothing we are, that to think that we’re the only ones is pretty screwy. Those people are crazier than the guys who believe in UFOs.
But I think there’s a whole bunch of different ones. There all over out there. There’s all kinds of dimensions. And I don’t think they were programming me I think they were just interested like, you know, we do with animals. So they had advanced technology, they were sucking my brain to see what I knew. And by me catching them, enlightened me. I didn’t learn anything. They didn’t put something in my brain to make me special. I don’t believe that at all. I just believed that by having that experience and realizing that it happened. My brain went ‘boop’ it was like taking acid, my mind expanded. And I started searching for, you know the truth, and things like that. And I still am.
And that was in the early 60s, early mid 60s. Do you ever have any experience after that or that was the only time?
No, no, I’ve had a couple since then too. Different ones different people. These little gray creatures that were hanging out in Lake Placid. I had a house out in the wilderness and I had just no electricity, log cabin back in the early 80s, 81 82 and these little guys are in that cabin one night and you know even slamming doors just I’m not saying Yeah, they were physical guys. I don’t know if they were robots or what but it was freaky. It scared me to death.
And is it true, on every single year albums, is there a song that’s titled after space or something with frontier? Do you have a theme going that maybe not everyone picks up on but is there a theme going with every one of your albums?
Yeah Space Station Number Five first Montrose song. Second Montrose was out in 1975 was Space Age Sacrifice. My first solo album, Hot Rocks, which changed into another song. But Silver Lights is about the return of the aliens coming back to see check out their planet that they populated somehow you know propagated with you know planted seeds. The next album Red had Someone Out There. Next Turn Up the Music had A Crack in the World on that record as far as I can remember. Then I stopped doing it every album. But every now and then I got one on there.
Awesome. Well, thank you Sammy. Appreciate it.
Anybody that doesn’t believe is crazy!
