Talking about being abducted by aliens appears to have its benefits. Former Van Halen and current Chickenfoot singer Sammy Hagar's new autobiography, 'Red: My Uncensored Life in Rock,' landed the number one spot on the New York Times Hardcover Non-Fiction Best Seller list this week.

The Red Rocker made quite a bit of noise and generated a boatload of publicity when he talked about being abducted by aliens on The Howard Stern Show and during interviews with MTV. Hagar has also offered quite a few public opinions about his former band and its current singer, David Lee Roth.
