|Guests:||Michael C. Luckman, Open Lines|
Ufologist and leading expert on celebrities and their UFO/paranormal experiences, Michael Luckman joined guest host Dave Schrader (email) for a discussion on the alien rock and roll connection. Pop star Robbie Williams camped out for two weeks at James Gilliland's ECETI Ranch in order to witness and record objects in the sky, Luckman said. The King himself, Elvis Presley, claimed to have had multiple UFO sightings throughout his life (at the desert, recording studio, and Graceland), and a blue light was even seen hovering over the shack where Elvis was born, he added.
"Hundreds of rock stars believe in UFOs and had some kind of experience," Luckman continued, noting that the overwhelming majority of sightings are not drug-induced. There are, however, some instances in which hallucinogenic substances likely contributed to the experience. The Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia insisted that he was locked in a spaceship for two days and saw large bug-like aliens, he revealed. According to Luckman, people tripping on the psychedelic compound DMT have reported similar experiences. Rock guitarist and singer Jimi Hendrix believed he was possessed by an evil entity. Luckman indicated that contact with negative aliens can also be the result of taking LSD.
Several noted musicians claim to have had alien abduction experiences, including former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley, singer-songwriter Cat Stevens, and 'The Red Rocker' Sammy Hagar, who was allegedly contacted by a group of beings called The Nine, Luckman reported. He shared details of John Lennon's UFO sighting as well as his theory about how the former member of The Beatles was killed due to a dark alien force (related article). Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman, was influenced by an entity that was opposed to Lennon's message of peace and love, Luckman suggested. He also commented on a recent story about NASA's underwater rover, proposing that the space agency is actually searching for extraterrestrial life, alien bases, and UFOs in our planet's oceans.
The remainder of the program was devoted to Open Lines.
