Sammy Hagar: I Really Think I Was Contacted by Aliens

Long before there was Van Halen, there may have been Van Alien.

Sammy Hagar, the onetime lead singer of the heavy metal band, writes in his new memoir that he once dreamed he was contacted by aliens in the foothills above Fontana, Calif.

But was it really a dream?

“That happened. That friggin’ happened, I’ll tell you right now,” the rocker, 62, tells MTV Hive.

Van Halen Veterans to Tour Together

David Lee Roth, 47, and his replacement as lead singer in Van Halen, Sammy Hagar, 54, told reporters on Tuesday that they would tour the U.S. together starting next month now that the hugely popular rock band has dispersed, reports Reuters. The tour is subtly titled “Song for Song: The Heavyweight Champs of Rock And Roll,” which refers to Hagar’s pugilist past and to Roth’s bent for martial arts.
