All the references to space in his music now make sense. This article is an interesting read. Does his celebrity help make this stuff more credible or is it all still bunk? Tom has got some really good theories on it all, and to me, it doesn’t sound like he’s just talking gibberish. He sounds well read on the topic.
“What’s funny, two decades ago when I got into this, it was such a “the world is flat” scenario, and here’s Tom running around about UFOs and they’d just laugh it off. But now, NASA is holding symposiums on the inevitability of finding life in the universe. The Vatican is talking about, yes, there’s life out there, and how it interferes or doesn’t interfere with the church’s view of existence.”
“People will be like “Oh, you believe in UFOs” [laughs], but I’m reading books on physics, I’m reading books on the secret space program, I’m talking to people that work underground for six months at a time, that are confiding in me about the national security initiatives. I’ve literally read 200 books on the subject, and I don’t spend my time looking at UFO reports or talking to little green men. I’m way past that.”
It’s pretty far out there. No pun intended.
