Someone page Mulder and Scully: Sammy Hagar says he was abducted by aliens, or at least that they downloaded his brain. In an interview with mtvhive.com about his new book, Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock, the ex-Van Halen frontman said that part of the book where he recounts dreams about UFOs actually happened. Saying that this might make him “sound like a crazy person,” but “It was real.” "They were plugged into me. It was a download situation ... Or, they uploaded something from my brain, like an experiment." He went on to talk about seeing a space ship hovering over a field in broad daylight when he was four years old.
