Last night I had this incredibly vivid dream. I was onstage before a massive crowd. Unlike the real me would be in the this situation, the dream me felt perfectly comfortable, even happy and excited. It was hot and noisy. It seems that I was the bassist in a power trio and we were about to perform at a huge event. The lead guitarist looked like this guy I saw in Newsweek magazine a couple of weeks ago. He wrote an article about letting go of perpetually setting goals. Here he is!
I don't know why his picture stuck in my head, but I liked his article in any event.... The drummer was Harry Shearer, not how he looked in Spinal Tap or A Mighty Wind, just regular Harry Shearer...
In the dream, we never actually got to play that I remember. I just remember the heat and noise and being aware that I was a kickass bassist.
This whole dream was so weird for a number of reasons, but the biggest reason is that I NEVER remember my dreams, ever. Well, apparently that must be qualified with a “hardly” before the ever. This one stuck with me and I had to write it down. If this is what my mind is doing at night, I hope I can start remembering more of my dreams!
