ByMonica Garske(Aug. 16) – Elvis may be the undisputed King of rock 'n' roll, but did you know he was also supposedly the King of UFO sightings?
Turns out, the hip-swiveling pioneer of rock may have been the first official rock star to truly embrace UFOs due to his reportedly deep-rooted, lifelong connection to flying saucers.
Now, there's no need to get "All Shook Up." Elvis' so-called "alien connection" is all solely the notion of Michael C. Luckman, a New York-based UFO researcher and author of "Alien Rock: The Rock 'N' Roll Extraterrestrial Connection" (Simon & Schuster), a book about famous musicians who claim they've had alien encounters.
Luckman told AOL News that out of all pop culture rock icons, Elvis Presley, by far, had the strongest tie to UFOs, experiencing several documented sightings throughout his life.
The author claimed that it all began the night the King was born -- Jan. 8, 1935 -- when a strange, unidentified blue light reportedly hovered in the night skies above Elvis' childhood home in Tupelo, Miss.
"The light was seen by the doctor who delivered him and by Elvis' father, who later told Elvis all about it," alleged Luckman.
