Below is more information about the book Alien Rock. 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.

Andre Van Pier at a charity dinner thrown in the celebrity fashion
designer's honor by the wife of the head of state of U.A.E. Qatar,
Shekha Mozah Bint Nasser, at the Virginia Commonwealth University School
of the Arts in Qatar.
Prince William's mother, Princess
Diana, was Van Pier's most revered celebrity client and was widely
photographed wearing his signature AVP navy blazer and skinny lycra pants
in both black and white and skinny leggings in white silk and lycra
that the princess loved since the minute she laid eyes on them.

trend that is now making out of this world fashion waves from Paris to

Wells was deeply impressed by Van Pier's
stunning couture specially designed for Princess Diana. He asked the
celebrity fashion designer for advice for Prince William's girlfriend,
Kate Middleton, who is launching her own line of clothing. Wells and
Middleton learned during their travels that the Van Pier brand was
becoming a renowned global luxury mark. Kate is being talked about as a
possible new Queen.
Princess Diana was a queen,'said Van Pier,
noting that she combined an unassuming aura of royalty
with the ultimate taste and style and simplistic chic. Diana's love
affair with Van Pier's couture began first when some clothes were
called in by Mario Testino Diana photographer for a fashion shoo.
Later the princess was intrigued when she spotted a Van Pier signature
jacket that appeared in a magazine ad for Macys department store purchased
by a chaperone. When Diana noticed princess Stephanie of
Monaco wearing a skiny gold pant in a Bazaar fashion layout and
prompted her to call Van Pier to bring the collection to her suite
at the Pierre Hotel on fifth avenue New York. Andre quickily rushed
in from shooting a beauty commercial in the Caribbean to paid the royal
visit. The rest is history .

Prince William's biggest love, next to his girlfriend
Kate Middleton, is UFOs. William is the newest member of the Royal Family
to become obsessed with contacting space aliens, keeping alive a family
precedent started in the 1950's by his grandfather, Prince Philip, a
serious UFO believer, and continued by William's father, Prince Charles,
whose airplane was buzzed by a mysterious UFO IN 1986, raising many royal
eyebrows, including Queen Elizabeth.
Incredibly, the Queens'
Balmorral Castle in Scotland and Windsor Castle in England were both
visited by UFOs on unknown missions. RAF jets sent up to investigate an
visitor at Balmorral in 1996 were unable to shoot down the
spacecraft. A red UFO similiar to the one that chased Prince Charles'
plane in 1986 on a flight from the United States was observed a week later
by eyewitnesses over Windsor Castle.
Now Prince William, the young
heir to the British throne and Princess Diana's oldest son, is said to be
starstruck by Michael C. Luckman's controversial book, "Alien
Rock: The Rock 'n' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection" featuring
many British rock stars from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones to his
close friend, Sir Elton John.
Luckman's sensational book, which
claims that Elvis Presley, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Jimi
Hendrix, Jerry Garcia and Michael Jackson had extraterrestrial and
paranormal encounters, has caught the attention of major Hollywood studios
and film producers such as Steven Spielberg and such stars as Bono;
Penelope Cruz; Matthew McConoughey; Dan Aykroyd; Bianca Jagger; Angela
Bowie; David Lee Roth; Pete Bennett, legendary promotion manager for
the Beatles; and Larry Geller, Elvis Presley's closest friend and
spiritual adviser. But it is Prince William's current involvement with
flying saucers--whose very existence is officially denied by the
British Ministry of Defense--that is bound to stir up a hornet's nest of
controversy among veteran royal watchers.
Prince Philip has been an
avid reader of Flying Saucer Review, a highly respected UFO magazine,
since the 1950's. According to private visitors, Prince Philip kept a map
on his office wall in Buckingham Palace indicating UFO hot spots. But it
was a face to face encounter that Prince Philip's equerry reportedly had
with a space alien named "Janus" that caused by far the biggest royal
uproar. Air Marshall Peter Horsley, an intimate advisor to the Queen, said
that in 1954 he met a visitor from another galaxy and spoke to him for
hours about space travel, the future of planet Earth and the possible role
of Prince Philip in curing the environment. Horsley never told Prince
Philip about the strange extraterrestrial episode. The former RAF chief
said that he kept details of the unusual meeting to himself until the
publication of his startling book, "Sounds From Another Room."
another UFO incident, a close friend of Princess Diana, Francis Hamilton
Stidston, reported that a flying saucer left behind it's calling card in a
field behind her home in South Devon in 1991--a scorched circle 75 feet in
diameter. Stidston, who is also a friend of Prince Charles' longtime
confidante, Lady Tyson, was certain that "they" (the space aliens) wanted
to contact her for some specific reason.
Whatever her views may
have been on UFOs, Princess Diana had a distinct taste for the paranormal
and regularly consulted with psychics, psychic healers and astrologers.
Chillingly, Diana predicted her own untimely death in a car crash 10
months before it happened--an event that sent shockwaves around the world.
As fate would have it, a resident of Rugby, England named Glenda Line,
told a local newspaper that she saw a huge bright light in the sky above
Alshorp the night before Princess Diana's funeral in 1997. "I said at the
time that it was Diana's star," she said. Whatever the true origin of that
mysterious light, it served as a welcome beacon of hope for those out of
this world royals--princes William, Charles and Philip--as they prepared
to confront their darkest hour and mourn their horrible personal loss in a
tunnel in Paris.
Diana was dressed in Van Pier's blazer for what
history would record as her last dinner with her fiance, Dodi Fayed, at
Paris' Hotel Ritz.
