Did rock stars like David Bowie and Tom DeLonge stumble upon information about mind control tactics, human consciousness, and more that threatened “the system”?
David Bowie gave an interview to Creem magazine in 1975 that nobody expected. Not only did he describe how he’d had multiple sightings of UFO craft, but he also made comments about the shocking ways in which media and cultural manipulation work.
Blink-182 musician-turned-UFO researcher Tom DeLonge made waves years later for his own strange encounters. He founded a company called To the Stars, went on UFO hunts, and built an extensive relationship with multiple high profile scientists he had networked with in an attempt to find the truth. Tom’s personal experiences were mind blowing on their own, but carried even more weight with the whistleblower information he gathered from scientists working on secret space programs. There was a mysterious element to all this research, though: Tom’s interest also got him his phones tapped and warnings from scientists who were worried about his safety. Did Tom DeLonge also have a dangerous experience he wouldn’t talk about? Do mind control experiments and the pursuit of alien technology have significant overlap that nobody is looking into?
