Sammy Hagar, who succeeded David Lee Roth as front man for rockers Van Halen from 1985 to 1996 has claimed in a new book that his mind was taken over by aliens. Proving that drug psychosis can last in to your 60s, the 63 year old claims in his new ghost written autobiography Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock, written with Joel Selvin that he experienced extra terrestrial contact in the California foot hills long before he joined the dutch born Van Halen brothers in the hard rock behemoth.
“I was lying in bed one night … dreaming,” he explains in the book. “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.” Drugs are bad kids, mmmkay?
