Sammy Hagar swears he was once abducted by aliens, and he details his wild experience in a new interview.

Speaking to Mystery Wire, the Red Rocker said his alien experience happened in the mid-’60s. He mentions that when most people ask him about his abduction, they expect him to “backpedal,” but he staunchly says his experience “100% happened.”

Hagar begins, “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.”

He continues, “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. 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. From that moment on, I believed in UFOs.”

Hagar added, “…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…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.”

As for why he thinks aliens may have contacted him, Hagar said, “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.”
