10 Music Icons Of The ’60s Rocked By Alien Encounters
The 1960s was one of the most memorable eras of the 20th century. It ushered in the civil rights movement, gave birth to the sexual revolution, and brought new political and social fervor in the midst of the Vietnam War and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The decade is also famous for the counterculture of sex, drugs, and, of course, rock and roll. Some of the most iconic figures in the history of music rose to fame in this era. Many of these stars shared an eerie commonality in the years to follow—UFO sightings and alien encounters. Was it genuine paranormal experience or simply a matter of psychedelic hallucination? You be the judge.
Beatles legend John Lennon was outspoken on the topic of UFOs. Lennon reportedly told magician and illusionist Uri Geller that Lennon had been visited by four aliens in his apartment in The Dakota (a well-known residence in New York) in 1973. He tried to give Geller an egg-shaped object that Lennon said the aliens had given him.
There was also a recording of Lennon describing a UFO sighting from the balcony of a Manhattan building in 1974. He said that the craft hovered above the city skyline as it made its way down the East River, taking a right toward the United Nations building before returning to the river and vanishing.
Although he managed to get his camera in time, Lennon claims that the photographs did not develop properly so he could offer no proof. He was clearly moved by the experience as he inscribed “On the 23rd Aug. 1974 at 9 o’clock I saw a U.F.O.” on his Walls and Bridges album.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
