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.

About the Author:

Michael C. Luckman is director of the New York Center for Extraterrestrial Research and the founder of the Cosmic Majority, an organization that seeks to represent the majority of people on earth who believe in UFOs, life on Mars, and the paranormal. Luckman taught the nation's first college course on rock music. He lives in New York City.

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.
