Is there a more hot-button issue than whether or not UFOs exist? Not weather balloons or clandestine missile tests; actual crafts from beyond this world piloted by little grey men (or possibly lizard people who are living in a hologram moon). There's no better way to clear a party than by telling people that you’ve witnessed a UFO racing across the sky. That’s why these musicians who have seen UFOs are the real heroes. Whether their extraterrestrial experiences informed their music, or they kept their close encounters on the DL, all of the musicians on this list have claimed to have seen something from out of this world.
According to a 2012 National Geographic poll, 77 percent of Americans believe that aliens have visited earth at one point or another, and a lot of those people are famous. What is out of the ordinary is that the musicians collected here have spoken openly about their brush with the other world. Telling people that you’ve seen a UFO rarely has positive side effects. Whether you think the truth is out there or not, these musicians are pretty sure they’re trying to be contacted by extraterrestrial life.Leave a comment about what you think about these musicians who saw a UFO. Should they continue to explore the great unknown, or go back to playing music?

British pop star Robbie Williams claims that he's had multiple encounters with UFOs starting when he was a child. The most outrageous claim he's made is that while he was listening to his song "Arizona," which is about aliens, he was visited by a nosy ball of light."I stood on the balcony and there was this big ball of gold light that turned up - we thought it was Venus or Mars or something. Then the song stops playing and it disappears. But then we put Arizona on again and the ball turned back up. It happened four times." It's not that it's impossible that Robbie Williams saw a UFO, it's just that no one (especially not an otherworldly being capable of intergalactic travel) would want to hang out with Robbie Williams while he listened to his own music. Or just in general.
