Why do UFOs haunt rock stars? No matter where rock stars live or tour, they seem to come across strange craft, otherworldly objects, and possibly extraterrestrial beings. Earth isn’t the only “Rolling Stone” apparently haunted by aliens, though. Both Keith Richards and Mick Jagger have talked about their extraterrestrial experiences. The bizarre part is, it’s not only RANDOM sightings, like when Mick Jagger reportedly saw a luminous, cigar-shaped UFO mothership when he was camping in Glastonbury in 1968. It almost seems like the members are being followed by extraterrestrial (ET) craft. At a Stones concert in 1969, Jagger said he saw another ship of the same shape.
Between the Rolling Stones’ personal UFO encounters, what Frank Zappa’s son had to say about his family’s deeper interests and military contacts, and Jimi Hendrix’s childhood experiences, these close encounters are affecting people’s entire lives. They’re also affecting other people’s lives, since everyone sees celebrities in the news and listens to their music.
