The Guardian has reported that Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar claims that his mind was infiltrated by extra-terrestrial intelligences decades ago.

Years before he played with Van Halen or was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the American rock star claims aliens from OUT OF THIS WORLD tapped into his consciousness in the California foothills, utilizing some kind of mysterious wireless connection.

Hagar believes his mind was taken over by “two intelligent creatures.” In his new memoirs, “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock,” Hagar detailed the encounter:

“I was lying in bed one night … 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.”

In a new interview, Hagar claimed that he wanted to write a lot more about UFOs, but his co-author Joel Selvin talked him out of it, convincing him that people weren’t interested in that topic. Although Hagar admits that the vision of an alien spaceship was part of a dream, he insists he was seeing something real:

“(It) friggin’ happened. Aliens were plugged into me … Either a download or an 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 … Like an experiment.”

This was not Hagar’s his first close encounter. When he was 4 years-old, he claims he saw a bizarre UFO:

“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… (I think I) blacked out. I guess. I just have no memory of it. And that wasn’t a dream. It was during daylight… I know there’s something out there, and someday they’ll come.”
