Can aliens reunite Van Halen?

Saturday January 28 2006 16:40 IST

ANI

WASHINGTON: All earthly things have failed to reunite estranged 'Van Halen' band members David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar. Now, extraterrestrial research expert Michael Luckman is hoping that aliens will be able to bring the two together.

Luckman, the author of 'Alien Rock: The Rock 'N' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection', has invited the two to perform at his 'Signal to Space' concert in 2007, where a message of peace will be beamed to outer space.

David Lee Roth also thinks that fans just might get to see him and Hagar re-uniting for the concert,

"The headline could be: Aliens Reunite Van Halen", Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.

And had a look around for Mr Luckman and found:

Quote:
Rock Stars & UFOs

Founder of the Cosmic Majority, Michael Luckman presented stories of various rock stars’ obsessions and experiences with UFOs and aliens. Here are some of the tidbits he shared:

    * David Bowie had a telescope mounted on the top of his limousine which he used to search the skies for UFOs between concert engagements in the 1970's.

    * Sammy Hagar reported having an ET-type encounter where he felt a presence of light and the sensation that the material in his brain was being downloaded.

    * Jerry Garcia said he was locked in a futuristic spaceship for two days where he saw "insectoid presences."

    * Michael Jackson had a UFO sighting when he was in the cockpit of a plane, describing lights of many colors in a crystal shape.

    * Cat Stevens said he was vacuumed up into a flying saucer and then let go later.

    * Mick Jagger had a "flying saucer detector" installed at one of his estates in England and it was said to go off all the time.

    * Ace Frehley reportedly filmed a UFO and a 27 ft. burn trace it left behind.


Luckman theorized that ETs, may in particular, communicate with rock icons in order to influence popular culture. He said he is planning "Signal to Space" concerts for 2006, where a musical message of peace will be beamed to our solar system and beyond. Luckman can be reached at alienrockstars@aol.com.

Elvis & the Aliens

In Michael Luckman's book Alien Rock, he writes about contacts Elvis Presley reportedly had when he was a young boy with beings from a world in the Orion constellation. The information comes from Wanda June Hill, a confidante of Elvis in his later years, who made recordings of their conversations. The beings, who showed themselves as "light forms," revealed to young Elvis a future version of himself on a stage and also told him that he actually hailed from their "blue star planet."

Editorial Reviews
From Booklist
Luckman relays some interesting trivia linking rock and UFOs but stretches to make small points. He cites a conversation between Jimi Hendrix and Monika Dannerman about how a person's "spirit could actually leave the body for a period of time" as evidence that "Jimi frequently experienced astral travel." Ohh-kay! Well, Hendrix's extraterrestrial interests are well-known, as are those of Sun Ra and George Clinton, whom Luckman also mentions; but Luckman goes on to say that Carlos Santana, OutKast, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones share them. Heck, even Olivia Newton-John gets Luckman's nod, thanks to her sighting of a shape-shifting UFO "on a desolate road." Fortunately, references to David Bowie's, the Grateful Dead's, and Pink Floyd's extraterrestrial interests are more substantial, and is anyone surprised that Michael Jackson and Elvis each get chapter-length coverage? Another chapter on UFOs at Woodstock, Altamont, and the Isle of Wight festivals amuses, too; but with so many strained and trifling references, the book satisfies desultory reading more than genuine inquiry.

Book Description

From Elvis to the Beatles, from Michael Jackson 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 Faithfull 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 traveling alone.

Jimi Hendrix: Starchild
By Curtis Knight

Jimi Hendrix came to Earth from another time and place at a very important moment in our history, to give us a message of peace, love and freedom.

not many people realize it, but Jimi Hendrix's life was greatly affected and influenced by the paranormal. In the pages of this book, author Curtis Knight reveals that Jimi had a good number of personal brushes with the unknown.

Here is the seldom-heard "inside story" of one of the legendary figures of the "Aquarian Age," and his quest to teach humankind a highly evolved philosophy of universal understanding and awareness. Here also is the "secret, symbolic meanings" to many of his songs, and an incredible picture of Jimi's gravesite, showing celestial manifestation.


So I thought it was too much of a coincidence so I thought I;d start a general thread for celebrity/UFO oddness.

Any ideas as to the validity or lack of it regarding the often-told story that American television and film comedian Jackie Gleason was shown a preserved alien while in the company of President Richard M. Nixon?

The story seems to have at least two things in its favor:

1. It didn't originate in some supermarket tabloid but in an (unpublished) biography of Gleason written by the woman who was his wife at the time of the alleged incident. She wrote that her husband returned home physically shaken, told her the story, went to bed exhausted and sick and thereafter couldn't hold food down for nearly a week. [I should add here that Gleason and the President were indeed quite chummy, with Gleason being one of the VERY few people with whom Nixon felt completely relaxed.]

2. Gleason at some point following held a free-wheeling news conference where he was questioned by eight or ten newspaper reporters. But when he was asked about the alien story, he flatly refused to talk about it.

"Sorry, boys, anything else," he is reported to have said. "I don't want to even TOUCH that one."

As even a skeptical friend of mine pointed out, "that's HARDLY a denial."

And Gleason, of course, was no stranger to UFOlogy.

Well, since the main characters are all dead (I don't know about the ex-wife), the whole story seems to come down to the provenance and validity of the bit about, "an (unpublished) biography of Gleason written by the woman who was his wife at the time of the alleged incident".

If there's any more on that part of the story, it would certainly interesting to read it.

According to Gleason's second wife, Beverly McKittrick, Gleason apparently had done more than talk and golf with his friend Richard Nixon while in Florida. McKittrick stated that one night Gleason had returned home very shaken. It was during the Nixon February 1973 visit to Florida. She related that President Nixon had taken Jackie to a heavily secured area at Homestead Air Force Base where he had viewed the remains of small aliens in a top secret repository. McKittrick related this story in an unpublished manuscript of Gleason called "The Great One."

Larry Bryant, the editor of Just Cause, the newsletter Gleason had a subscription to, filed a Freedom of Information Act Request with Homestead Air Force Base. Bryant requested documentation on the top secret repository and Gleason’s visit there to see the alien bodies. The Air Force Base replied that " no such records existed." Bryant also sent an advertisement to the Homestead Air Force Base Newspaper soliciting information anyone on the base could provide about the alien bodies or Jackie Gleason’s visit to see them. The public affairs officer at Homestead denounced the Bryant advertisement and "forbade its publication."

At the same time Bryant wrote Gleason providing him with a draft affidavit. He asked Gleason to execute the affidavit so it could be used as part of a growing accumulation of evidence Bryant was collecting in preparation for taking the government to court to release all information on alien crash retrievals. Gleason did not reply.

About the same time as Bryant was approaching Gleason to provide an affidavit about his experience at Homestead, Gleason was approached by the film industry about the rumored story. Bryant recounted the story;

"Though I never did hear from Gleason," said Bryant, " I did learn that he had been contacted by a third party in the film industry. At this confrontation, Gleason chose to neither confirm nor deny the story, saying that he would prefer not to discuss it all . The way I see it Gleason easily could have set the record straight in reply to my proposal or in an explanation to the inquisitive film-industry representative. If the story was a fabrication or misinterpretation on the part of his wife, he now had every opportunity to say so. That he chose not to merely deepens the mystery."

Shortly before his death in 1987, one story says Gleason did finally confirm the story about seeing the bodies at Homestead. The person who Jackie Gleason told the story to was Larry Warren who a member of the Air Force Security Police at RAF Bentwaters. Bentwaters was one of two bases in England where in late December 1980, three days of bizarre UFO incidents took place. Many US airmen stationed at the base were involved in sightings, radar trackings, pictures, and videos.

The version I've heard is that Gleason invited Warren to dinner where Warren related his version of what had happened at Rendlesham/ Bentwaters.

"Now that you've told me your experience," Gleason replied, "I'll tell you mine."

In any case, the story seems to have a little more substance than most tales of this sort. And I'm by no means convinced that the tale falls apart because Gleason failed to answer Larry Bryant's enquiries to his satisfaction.

Why "denounce"? I can see denying publication of the advertizement but "denounce" seems like overkill.

I can think of a very easy explanation for why no records exist of the Nixon-Gleason visit (assuming it did indeed take place). The COMMANDER IN CHIEF of the United States Air Force (Nixon) said "make no record of this visit."

I personally am not sweating bullets wondering if Nixons story is true or not. There are hundreds of thousands of other cases.

I moved this over to this thread as one of the books mentioned above ("UFOs Among the Stars: Close Encounters of the Famous") states that it looks at this case. Not sure if it'd reveal anymore informaiton that that but if you are looking for a way to chase this one up.

Re: Jackie Gleason

Quote:
In the Nixon UFO section reader's can read about the story of how Jackie Gleason gained access to Homestead Air Force Base through President Nixon, and there viewed dead alien bodies.

The accuracy of the story has always been questioned, because Gleason never spoke openly about the event. The original person telling the Gleason/alien body story was Beverly Gleason, Gleason's second wife from 1970-1974.

Now after many years of silence Mrs. Gleason speaks out again to confirm the story she first told many years ago. The latest interview is done by Kenny Young.

Subject: CONTACTED BEVERLY GLEASON (McKITTRICK)

INTERVIEW with BEVERLY GLEASON

This morning I spoke by telephone with Beverly Gleason McKittrick, an ex-wife of the late comedian Jackie Gleason. I explained to her that I was interested in the progress of her book and if she could talk about Jackie Gleason's claim of seeing alien bodies at Homestead Air Force Base in Florida.

She said that the book never came out as she had 'stopped writing' of it. She said she was 'glad to get out of it' as Jackie Gleason did not seem pleased with her quoting him on the aliens in Florida. She said that there was not much additional to tell as the whole story regarding Jackie Gleason and the aliens, as far as she knew, had already been printed anyway.

"Esquire Magazine interviewed me after our separation," she said, "and I talked about how Jackie told me about seeing dead aliens in Florida. I think it was sometime in '74 when this happened. When I said that it was because he told me."

"After the interview was published, Jackie was upset about the story being public. He called and said he didn't appreciate me giving the interview, and that's when I started to wonder if the story was 'iffy.'

"The reason I became 'iffy' about it is because I wondered if it was really true, I mean... I believed it the whole time. I bought the story hook, line and sinker. But if it was true, then why did he get so upset about it?"

Beverly went on to explain how Jackie came to tell her of his experience.

"Jackie had been out very late one night I did not know who he was with," She said. "He told me where he was that same evening, he said he had been in South Florida with President Nixon to see some dead aliens there and I believed him, he was very convincing.

"He and Nixon were in contact quite a bit and I'm not sure how that was arranged, but it seems that their meetings were set up by an associate of Nixon's. After he got back, he was very pleased he had an opportunity to see the dead little men in cases, he explained to me what they looked like and he was still talking about it the next day."

Beverly explained that during her interview with Esquire Magazine, she made the statement about Gleason's claim to see dead aliens and afterward things between her and Jackie turned sour.

"We were on the verge of divorce, but everything was okay until it came out in Esquire," she said.

She informed that Gleason never did deny the story.

Regarding her announced intention to write a book, Beverly again said that she abandoned the project due in large part to Gleason's objection to her comments about him seeing the aliens.

"I just made that one statement about the UFOs and it appeared in Esquire and I guess a few other places and he didn't like that and I thought, I just can't go through with this. Let him live his life. So I never wrote the book."

I thanked Beverly for talking with me and asked if it would be okay for me to call her back later if I had more questions, she agreed. That concluded our conversation.

Special thanks to Donnie Blessing, Grant Cameron and David Rudiak for their help in providing contact information for Beverly Gleason McKittrick.

Follow-up With Beverly Gleason

Subject: Follow-up With Beverly Gleason


This afternoon I placed a second call to Beverly Gleason at her home in Easton, Maryland. We spoke for about 15-minutes and I asked if she could recall, for certain, if Esquire Magazine was the first to print her story about Richard Nixon showing comedian Jackie Gleason, her late husband, alien bodies after a golf game while at Homestead Air Force Base in Florida.

Beverly said that she is certain that it was Esquire Magazine that first printed the story, and went on to describe how the article was the front page cover story of Esquire, carrying a picture of Jackie and some text regarding UFOs. She also said that the reporter who did the story still works there, and she could only recall his first name perhaps being "Ben."

She said that in the years after the Esquire report, other publications picked up the story - some of them she thought, directly from Esquire.

Going back to the Gleason/Nixon meetings for golf in Florida, she couldn't remember any specific date they met but said that her relationship with Jackie Gleason was good during that time frame. She said that she had even met with President Nixon herself, meeting him near a pool and having a drink with him.

She said that later, at the time of the Esquire article, her relationship with Jackie was not good.

"I'll be honest with you, about the time the article appeared Jack and I were breaking up," she said. "And when he saw the Esquire article that just finished everything."

I asked her about the reports she had planned to write a book and whether or not she ever prepared a manuscript. She said that she did not have any written manuscript at any time and nothing otherwise prepared. There is nothing she had ever prepared in writing, she said, to document this first-hand.

"At the time Jack came home after his meeting with The President, he was so giddy and excited about seeing these little men," she said, "but in the years afterward I began to ask myself if any of this could really be true or if he was just telling me that... perhaps having been 'out' with someone?"

I asked her if she could recall any of his words, a more complete description of the 'little men' or any information such as where they came from or crashed, and Beverly laughed and reminded me of how many years ago this was. She then answered by saying: "you would be best off to find that Esquire article, that probably contains my closest recollection of anything he said."

I told Beverly that in addition to doing research, I also was involved in writing and producing television documentaries. I asked her if she would feel comfortable going 'on camera' with this story and said that it would be tremendous to preserve her comments and experience on videotape. She said that she was not interested in going on television and thought the story concerning the 'little men' should be authenticated first. I said that the only real 'authentication' would come if the government announced having the bodies and she said "I guess you're right, but I guess I just don't want to go on camera with this."

I thanked her for talking with me and she again suggested I find the Esquire magazine article.

No, but he quite openly REFUSED to talk about it! All it would have taken was a simple denial - "What a bunch of horsetwaddle!" This is one of those cases where "no comment" works hard in favor of the story's authenticity.

P. S. Emps, thanks for moving this discussion over here where it more accurately belongs. I hadn't yet come upon this topic.

And let's not forget John Lennon's close encounter with "f***ing bugs".

Quote:

The night aliens called on Lennon

They came in the darkness and had bug-like faces. Stranger still, they left a weird egg-shaped object behind. Uri Geller recalls his friend John Lennon’s encounter with the unknown

There is an egg-like object in my pocket. It was given to me by John Lennon. And it was given to him by . . . well, I’ll come to that.
Mystery object: Geller with Lennon's 'alien egg'

We were eating in a restaurant in New York City. Yoko was with us, so this was after their big break-up and reconciliation. Yoko was expecting their child, Sean, and John was excited — he was going to love this baby day and night: feed him, change him, teach him to talk, teach him to love music.

He did all of that. And he was going to watch him grow into adolescence, through the tumbles from bicycles and terrors of schooldays, from reading to dating to college. He never got to do that. John started talking about UFOs.

He said he believed life existed on other planets, that it had visited us, that maybe it was observing us right now. He took me to a quieter, darker table, lit a cigarette and pointed its glowing tip at my face.

“You believe in this stuff, right?” he asked me. “Well, you ain’t f---in’ gonna believe this.

“About six months ago, I was asleep in my bed, with Yoko, at home, in the Dakota Building. And suddenly, I wasn’t asleep. Because there was this blazing light round the door. It was shining through the cracks and the keyhole, like someone was out there with searchlights, or the apartment was on fire.

“That was what I thought — intruders, or fire. I leapt out of bed, and Yoko wasn’t awake at all, she was lying there like a stone, and I pulled open the door. There were these four people out there.”

“Fans?” I asked him.

“Well they didn’t want my f---in’ autograph. They were, like, little. Bug-like. Big bug eyes and little bug mouths and they were scuttling at me like roaches.”

He broke off and stared at me.

“I’ve told this to two other people, right? One was Yoko, and she believes me. She says she doesn’t understand it, but she knows I wouldn’t lie to her. I told one other person, and she didn’t believe me.

“She laughed it off, and then she said I must have been high. Well, I’ve been high, I mean right out of it, a lot of times, and I never saw anything on acid that was as weird as those f---in’ bugs, man.
Friends: Lennon and Geller in conversation

“I was straight that night. I wasn’t dreaming and I wasn’t tripping. There were these creatures, like people but not like people, in my apartment.”

“What did they do to you?” Lennon swore again. “How do you know they did anything to me, man?” “Because they must have come for a reason.”

“You’re right. They did something. But I don’t know what it was. I tried to throw them out, but, when I took a step towards them, they kind of pushed me back. I mean, they didn’t touch me. It was like they just willed me. Pushed me with willpower and telepathy.”

“And then what?”

“I don’t know. Something happened. Don’t ask me what. Either I’ve forgotten, blocked it out, or they won’t let me remember. But after a while they weren’t there and I was just lying on the bed, next to Yoko, only I was on the covers.

"And she woke up and looked at me and asked what was wrong. I couldn’t tell her at first. But I had this thing in my hands. They gave it to me.”

“What was it?” Lennon dug into his jeans pocket. “I’ve been carrying it round ever since, wanting to ask somebody the same question. You have it. Maybe you’ll know.”

I took the metal, egg-like object and turned it over in the dim light. It seemed solid and smooth, and I could make out no markings. “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“Keep it.” John told me. “It’s too weird for me. If it’s my ticket to another planet, I don’t want to go there.”

...Now, 24 years on, when I hold the cold, metal egg in my fist, I have a strong sensation that John knew more about this object than he told me. Maybe it didn’t come with an instruction manual, but I think John knew what it was for.

And whatever that purpose was - communication? healing? a first-class intergalactic ticket? - it scared him. I wish I could have warned him . . . that however scary aliens seem, it’s the humans you have to fear.
