During a recent interview with MTV Hive, the 63-year-old rocker talks about several chapters in the book that detail his multiple alien abductions. According to Hagar, he’s been abducted many times by aliens, and the abductions started in his childhood.
“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…I just have no memory of it.” He then adds: “And it wasn’t a dream it was during daylight.”
“It was real,” Hagar insists. “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, ‘F**k, they downloaded something into me!’ Or they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment. ‘See what this guy knows.'”
He never talked about the alien abductions until the last few years. “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. Don’t get me going!”
You can tell by listening to him talk about the situations that he really believes in what he is saying. He is even considering writing a second book based solely on the abductions.
“My opinions about the UFO stuff, well, I could write a whole book just devoted to that,” he says. “I love it, man. I’m into it deep.”
