"Red" rocker Sammy Hagar says abducted by aliens
"LOS ANGELES (Reuters) No doubt Sammy Hagar, a former lead singer for Van Halen, has enjoyed a lot of far out experiences in life, but on Monday, the rocker told perhaps his farthest out tale to MTV. He was abducted by aliens.

Or, at least, his brain was.

In an interview for his new book, "Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock" at mtvhive.com, Hagar lets go of what even he admits might make him "sound like a crazy person" to some readers.

He and the reporter are talking about dreams he claims to have had about UFOs, and when asked whether he believed he had been abducted, Hagar answers: "I think I have."

The reporter seemed surprised. "What? Really? I was kidding. You seriously believe that?" he asks."

5. He said a lot of mean, nasty crap about VanHalen recently in a Rolling Stone interview.
I never liked VanHalen, but Hagar sounded like an asshole.

Hagar... :puke:

Calling out people when they are obvously sick is a shitty thing to do.

Heard him on Stern last week. Arrogant turd!

On edit: Didn't he say he made 80 mill off that garbage alcohol he peddles?

13. Eddie is more than enough asshole for any single band...I kind of think
most of what Sammy says about him is true.

14. Sammy wouldn't even be a rock & roll footnote if it wasn't for VanHalen.
He sounds like an idiot who has no
problem biting the hands that fed him.

16. Sammy had his own band and had many albums/CD's out when Eddie
ASKED him to sing with them. Sammy has had several more CD's since then, and he has fans of his own as he had for several decades.
Eddie has a strong reputation as an egotistical,arrogant prick, even for rock musicians, which is saying a lot. He also tends to distort the truth and the past to fit his own desires and needs...especially concerning his former band mates and those who worked with him in the past. Eddie has very few friends in the business, and blames everyone else for that.

But hey, he does play the guitar well.
