LR044 – Some Songs About Aliens w/ Aris Hunter Wales

Jason Dinges Lost Rhetoric, Podcast Leave a Comment

Aris Hunter Wales from BEWITCHER & ORDER OF THE GASH joins me in a Rock ‘n’ Roll romp through 4 songs that were inspired by true life events.  Whether it was their own experience or someone else’s, these musicians found inspiration in the unknown.  We discuss Sammy Hagar’s abduction experience & his song “Silver Lights”, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “It Came Out Of The Sky” & the 2 events that inspired the lyrics, “Space Invader” by Ace Frehley & his wealth of ET experiences & finally Megadeth’s “Hangar 18” about, you guessed it, the infamous Hangar 18 at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio.
