ALIEN ROCK : THE ROCK 'N' ROLL EXTRATERRESTRIAL CONNECTION by Michael C. Luckman is the most unusual book on rock 'n' roll ever written and the most intriguing book on UFOs ever revealed! ALIEN ROCK explores the inside stories of rock stars obsessions and experiences with UFOs - from Elvis Presley and David Bowie to Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Blondie and the Foo Fighters, who record on Roswell Records.
Elvis considered his many UFO sightings to be signs from gods. Michael Jackson, whom many believe to be an alien, is so obsessed by the possibility of life on other planets that he wants to pack up his show and take it to outer space and perform the Moonwalk on the Moon. And along the way, Elton John and David Bowie created Rocketman and Ziggy Stardust, and Sammy Hagar, Rick Wakeman, Dave Davies and Nina Hagen have experienced classic UFO abductions. Is it all coincidence?
From Elvis to the Beatles, from Jerry Garcia to Marilyn Manson, rock stars claim to have seen, communed with, been inspired by, and sometimes even descended from extraterrestrials. ALIEN ROCK is an irreverent, illuminating, all-access pass to the stars' unearthly encounters - some friendly, some frightening, and some frankly bizarre, including:
The birth of Elvis was marked by the appearance of a mysterious blue light over his house.
In August 1974, John Lennon spied a UFO from the window of the penthouse he shared with then-girlfriend, May Pang.
Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful encountered a luminous cigar-shaped mothership while camping in the English countryside in 1968.
Jimi Hendrix told a friend, "I am a spiritual messenger, sent here from another place."
Whether you're a UFO skeptic or a true believer, ALIEN ROCK provides a fascinating new perspective on the long, strange trip that is rock 'n' roll history, and suggests that, wherever the road takes us, we may not be travelling alone.
