Published Mar 27, 2017David Bowie first asked if there was life on Mars in rock music, but the Kinks' Dave Davies may be a few steps closer than the rest of us in finding it, claiming that he's had interactions with extraterrestrials.
The 70 year-old rocker told Vulture that he has had "several experiences" seeing UFOs before. "It was really interesting. I saw them in north Devon in England — lights and zigzags in the skies. Then when I started to dig deeper into my experience, I understood I was also getting communications — psychic impressions — from aliens," he told the publication.
When asked if he was sure it was aliens in the night sky, Davies told of how a gut feeling moved deeper into his consciousness.
"I'm sure there are many people in the world who can explain it better than I can," he continued. "You have an experience with a UFO, and you keep those feelings, and then it gets into your subconscious and super-conscious. When I investigated what those feelings could be, when I got really into ufology, I could've sworn I was having connections with the Dog Star, with Sirius. Sirius has very deep connections with Earth.
"There are all sorts of phenomena about consciousness that we can't quite explain but that give us wisdom and guidance."
Elsewhere in the interview, Davies revealed that both he and brother Ray have been getting on better following their onstage reunion in 2015. You can read the full conversation here.
