  • Sammy Hagar says he was abducted by aliens. Seriously.

    Maybe the reason Sammy Hagar is not able to “Drive 55” is that he’s accustomed to riding in space ships that travel much faster.

    The former Van Halen front man and current proprietor of the Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, says he was abducted by aliens.

    “It was real,” Hagar insisted in an interview with MTVhive.com. “(Aliens) were plugged into me. It was a download situation.”

    The wild-haired rocker, who has authored a new memoir, “Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock and Roll,” thinks that aliens were probing him for some kind of information during his days with the band Montrose in the early ‘70s.

    “This was long before computers or any kind of wireless,” says Hagar of his experience in the foothills above Fontana, CA. “There weren’t even wireless telephones. Looking back now, it was like, ‘F___, they downloaded something into me!’ Or they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment. ‘See what this guy knows.’

    Why aliens would want to know the secrets of a low-end rock star (Montrose wasn’t exactly The Rolling Stones) is unknown, but Hagar said they were after something.

    “I’m pretty sure it was a wireless situation,” says Hagar. “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.”

    Maybe they were trying to download the recipe for his Cabo Wabo tequila?

    Or maybe they uploaded it to him.
