Rock star Sammy Hagar’s alien visitations

Legendary rock star, Sammy Hagar, has had a successful solo career and was once the singer for the band Van Halen, however it’s possible he had some help reaching his stardom from the stars. Hagar claims that he has had multiple experiences with extraterrestrials who helped influence his music.

In an interview with Guitar World, Hagar told his story: “It’s been a long, long time, but back in about ’68, in Fontana, California, I had this unbelievable experience that would take this whole interview to even go into… But I’m a firm believer — have seen, have felt, have been contacted three or four different times. I have received information that has been valuable in my life from those people, and they have used me. I’m gonna sound like a complete nut here, but they have used me in an experimental fashion. The easiest way to put it is that they downloaded my brain information. When I was about 19 or 20, they downloaded everything that was in my head. And I caught ’em doin’ it! I woke up in the middle of the night, thinkin’, ‘What’s goin’ on?’ They were like, ‘Oh, my god, he’s waking up!’ But this was all telepathy — there were no words being spoken. And as soon as I woke up — it was probably three o’clock in the morning — my whole room was so bright that I could hardly keep my eyes open. I was wide-awake, I could not move, eyes open, white room, they were still disconnecting — and when they did, it just went bang! Everything went back to normal, back to black. I was shaking, I almost passed out, I was sick to my stomach and almost had to throw up, it was so scary…”

“It sent me on a course of curiosity. I bought a telescope, and I started reading UFO books, and I just got into the whole thing. And since then, there have been three or four other contacts with the same group of people. I don’t know who the **** they are, but I’ve narrowed them down to a people called the Nine, who are called that because they’re from the Ninth Dimension. I’ve named my publishing company the Nine Music after them. It’s a crazy thing, man. But to me, anyone who thinks we’re the only ones here, despite the vastness of the entire universe, is ****ing crazy. Those people gotta be put away — not the guys having these contacts!”

In a news interview Hagar further described the visit, “They didn’t come into my room. They were parked up on a hill behind the house about 12 miles away, and they were connecting into my brain.”

In his book, Alien Rock, Michael Luckman says that when pushed to describe the beings, Hagar said they were just pure energy.

The history of people chanelling a group called “The Nine” goes back possibly over 50 years. According to a story in the Fortean Times, it began with parapsychologist, Andrija Puharich. He brought an Indian mystic into his laboratory who began channeling The Nine. Puharich was also known for discovering the famous psychic Uri Geller, who supposedly also channeled The Nine. Eventually Puharich started a research organization called Lab Nine to find other channellers that were allegedly in contact with this group.

Over the years many famous people have had an interest in “The Nine”, including the creator of Star Trek, Gene Rodenberry, according to the Fortean Times article. Rodenberry had apparently written a script about their channelings, but it never made it into production.

Sammy Hagar isn’t kidding when he says he has had these contacts, and he also claims that there were no drugs involved with these contacts. So is his music influenced by ET? Luckman believes this may be the case for many of the world’s leading artists. If that’s true, there must be some great galactic jams in the cosmos, that hopefully humans will one day be able to take part in.

  1. This is not a fabrication. I have written a book about how Sammy’s ET encounters have inadvertently affected me, although I found it all very hard to believe at first. Seven years ago, my husband and I took a vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We wandered into a local bar, Cabo Wabo, hoping to enjoy a rock concert by a famous musician I’d not previously heard of–Sammy Hagar. During the show, I had a mystical experience that forever changed my life. Since then, supernatural incidents began happening on a regular basis, forcing me to question my sanity and to reevaluate my perception of what is real and what is important in life.

    I’m currently working to find an agent and publisher for my book DANCE OF THE ELECTRIC HUMMINGBIRD, which is about this very thing. Please visit my website at for more information.

  2. Sammy believes it, I believe it. He touches people with his music and his energy, and I believe he has been touched along the way…

  3. Baja rock Pat, you would say it’s real if you’re hoping to sell a book on that very story. I’m not saying Sammy is lying but what proof has he got apart from his word? and any story with Uri Geller in it just makes me switch off.

  4. That’s why I am here reading this…I started listening to Sammy years ago and haven’t been the same since, I listen day in day out…am always singing and humming his tunes. I always knew there was something more to it ! Wow !
