Sammy Hagar Claims To Have Been Abducted By Aliens In New Interview

In a recent interview with Eric Spitznagel of MTVHive.com, Sammy Hagar discussed topics such as his sexual escapades, doing coke until the sun comes up, and his belief that he was abducted by aliens. An excerpt from the interview follows.

Eric: 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?

Sammy: I think I have.

Eric: What? Really? I was kidding. You seriously believe that?

Sammy: [Laughs.] Now you’re making me sound like a crazy person.

Eric: How is that crazy? I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened to you.

Sammy: Remember the story in the book, where I have a dream about being contacted by aliens in the foothills above Fontana?

Eric: 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?

Sammy: 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.”

Eric: And this actually happened?

Sammy: 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.

Eric: You blacked out?

Sammy: I guess. I just have no memory of it. And that wasn’t a dream. It was during daylight.

Eric: I can understand your apprehension. Alien abduction is a tough sell.

Sammy: 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!

Eric: If they were downloading something from your brain, I guess the joke’s on them. Unless they were hoping for the lyrics to “Rock Candy.”

Sammy: Oh yeah, I’m sure they were. [Laughs.] Montrose was a very special band.

Hahaha, in the same interview where he discusses "doing coke until the sun comes up" can he really expect anyone to believe he was abducted by aliens?.. And that he saw a floating car in a field when he was 4 years old, I'm pretty sure everyone makes up crazy stories when they're 4.

Well, what if he REALLY was abducted by aliens and we're just pissing ourselves laughing at the guy?

I mean, have you noticed just how many Van Halen singers have vanished without a trace over the years?

It has to be said that there IS a strange connection between Van Halen and space:

Hagar (apparently) got abducted by aliens, David Lee Roth is one, EVH is not of this earth and the whole band's been "off the radar" for quite a while now plus no one ever quite understood them in a first place. Weird.

Moulder and Scully, time to come back; got a case for you - The VH files.

I love how the interviewer eggs him on...

"Eric: How is that crazy? I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened to you."

That's all it took for ol Sammy to open the vault. Sammy made sure to contradict himself..."And that wasn’t a dream [car without wheels]. It was during daylight."

Hey it could be possible, if I was intergalactic stoner, drug abuser, and alcoholic, Sammy Hagar would be the guy to abduct. They must have done a VH1 special on him and they caught wind of him out in space.

oh and RT, aliens LOVE cows!! they like to do chop-shop core sample experiments with some of my buddies cattle every 2-3 years...find them things with neatly cauterized biopsies of various organs (they like eyes and getalia best it appears) and the vasular system drained bone dry

it definitely sucks for him, and is always an expensive loss, but i have to admit it is pretty fvckin funny when you hear a hard nosed cattle racher cuss "fvckin Aliens!!" with full venom and sincerity

It's like the Hagar that cried alien. He was so coked up off his a$$ as Guttersniper pointed out that no one is gonna believe him when he says he was abducted.

But I believe aliens exist and if they wanted to abduct people there probably isn't a whole lot of stuff we could do to stop them.
Damn aliens abducting out cows and former Van Halen singers.......

Yea that's true R Ten. I've been watching that show Ancient Aliens on history channel also. I'm not gonna lie they make that sh!t look really convincing. I could believe aliens helped build the pyramids. What do I know, it's not like any of us were honestly there haha. I'm willing to bet that sometime before I die the government will finally say fvck it and let people see what's inside Area 51. Although I highly doubt there's anything interesting in there anymore.
So many people try to get a peek at that place ever since people found out about it, they probably moved the really secret stuff somewhere classified, and Area 51 is now just a decoy. That's just an idea I've had. Could be true. Seems logical.

That's the point though. They keep it heavily guarded still, to keep everyones concentration on Area 51 so they can do their work in another more secret location. I mean Area 51 isn't that secret anymore but I'm sure they still do some pretty cool stuff there. It's just an interesting thought.
But yea Hagar isn't helping anything. Speaking of him though, I bet the new Chickenfoot album is gonna be awesome, if anyone here has heard their first album at least.

THAT i find ridiculous....there are literally billions of worlds, and human knowledge is so fvcking myopic that its laughable in the context of greater cosmos...we have a hard enough time getting people to our own little moon whose average distance away is a paltry 238k miles away, and haven't even begun to begin manned missions to even out nearest sister planet

contemplate the incedible distance a SINGLE light year represents....now what about MILLIONS of light years??

My take on aliens is on par with yours Hellrat, especially considering that we've only been around for a tiny fraction of how long the earth has been around. Of course this is assuming what scientific data we have is correct, who knows... What we do know is that the earth sure wasn't made in 6 days.

ZMA, Hellrat, If aliens have the technology to fly over here, they'd also have the technology to find out a little bit more of the wonderful residents of the planet earth.

That said, You think someone would appear out of space and come over to say "hi" to us?
They'd know what savages we are. They'd look at the earth from a distance and see all the flashes and flames = wars. Should be quite warning.

So I think it'd be "oh man, earth again? Let's go someplace else".

LOL, I just looked at the earth from a perspective of an alien. Only at MU ;)
