Are we all finally running out of sensible topics ? 

Or did that all happen years ago ?

It is natural. I remember when I first saw a bottle of Jagermeister I thought my life would be not enough to enjoy the taste of all the existing bitters. Nowadays, don't get me wrong, I'm not an alcoholic - but I drank enough bitters including Jagermeister to simply hate them and their usual taste. I prefer Triple Sec these days. Perhaps, this love will perish one day, as well. 

The number of possible topics for such a forum is certainly limited.

I've long had prog dreams involving many scenarios.  

I'm a correspondent with Mr. Robert Fripp & his sister Patricia, which has led to a number of rather wild dreams, often involving playing onstage with Bob.  (I'm the former bassist to one of his first Guitar Craft students, Alonzo Jones, in his amazing band "CAVU").  

I also know John Goodsall of Brand X, even bought him a laptop once when his computer fried out.  Another friend is Ray Bennett and Colin Carter of the band "Flash."  

The first prog-related dream I can remember was when I was a lad in high school, perhaps 1971.  I dreamt about Jimmy Page playing onstage with a natural finished Telecaster.  As he was most often shown with a sunburst Les Paul, I thought it was an odd dream....eventually, I learned that the early Led Zep material in fact was recorded with a Telecaster.

I enjoyed this light hearted thread and got a kick out of many of the responses. Never having dreams related to music myself, I'm surprised that they were even possible. I feel a bit sad at never having the experience.

Last night I had a nice dream about Chick Corea in concert, and Stanley Clarke showed up!  Tall, lanky, handsome cat!  Absolutely no reason to have this dream, I haven't listened to either in months. 

Here, have some!

Not a dream, but read somewhere that Gabriel supposedly hallucinated the part in Supper's Ready about "Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly. The seventh walks in front with a cross held high in hand." I've had dreams of a similar nature where mysterious figures lurk somewhere out on the periphery.

From a dream journal:  

11 October 2011

Funny dream about David Cousins...He was encamped on a lawn that was raised up from street level, about waist-height, with a retaining wall below it.  He was homeless (gee, where did homeless come from?) and was busking to raise money to get back home.  He was wearing weathered boots and had scrapbooks/photo albums strewn all around him.  Rick Wakeman was there as well and he and I were looking through the albums...they had that old library musty scent to them.

Thanks for sharing!  For some odd reason, I've been humming the Strawbs song "Round and Round" all morning!  I didn't dream about Cousins, but why I suddenly fixated on this song escapes me! 

Prog-related dream - last night, I dreamt I was selected to go on a rocket trip to the Moon, on an Elon Musk rocket.  My only dilemma was trying to figure out which guitar I wanted to take!!  The Les Paul was too heavy, I settled on my Guild S-100.

  Nice collection!  That would be a hard decision, but the Les Paul would weigh less on the moon, lol!  But so would you, so perhaps it would still feel equivalent (I'll leave that to scientists amongst us to let us know....you might know, judging from your post elsewhere).  It does seem like we are lately, especially, just going round in circles.  The thing most about my dream was the scent factor, some people never dream with scent, but I've had several that were particularly memorable.  And being excited to just catch DC busking, it was a good listen.  :)

Never. My dreams usually involve obscure events from daily life repeating themselves in a distorted and surreal manner, involving people I haven't seen in years (or people I've never seen at all) and plot twists that could only happen in dreams.

Haha. Today I had a dream in which Limmy (Limmy's Show) got really angry in one of his sketches and started singing... Dirge by Welcome... with the Scottish accent and everything.

I had a prog wet dream once. It has to do with ejaculating in bizarre time signatures.

Last night, I dreamt that I was talking to the remains of Yes and imploring Howe to re-record "The Ancient" from TFTO in order to include percussion parts played by a huge collection of Yes fans. 

Needless to say, Howe was dubious.  

I actually participated in this type of performance once, when the Tulsa Artist Coalition gave their annual New Music concert....they passed out sets of wooden laundry clips to the audience, and we clicked them together to emulate the sound of crickets.  It was good fun!  

Imagine "The Ancient" with hundreds, nay, thousands more percussion parts!!  MORE COWBELL!

I just had a Prog Related dream. I was running the boards for Deep Purple, from the back of the stage. When the time came for a keyboard solo I was supposed to start a prerecorded cassette so John Lord could just mime it. I hit play, and the tape wasnít cued up right, so it was just some piano tinkling and people talking. I hit fast forward and it was just audience sounds and clapping and laughter. Crap! I screwed that up! So I announced ďThatís all I got, unless John wants to play something.Ē I looked over and it wasnít John Lord at the keys it was someone Iíve never seen before. Then it dawned on me itís not John Lord because heís dead! This is getting worse and worse! Maybe Iíll be really lucky and this guyís name happens to be John too. It was, but he didnít know how to play keyboards so he just looked confused. Then I mercifully woke up.

THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!!  Great addition!!  

Your dream is very similar to the real-life experience of Mike Pinder with Moody Blues:

In an interview on the DVD The Moody Blues John identifies the Filmore
East as the venue where all the tapes fell out of the mellotron during a
show, and the audience watched Bugs Bunny cartoons while Mike Pinder
re-assembled it.  There were back-to-back shows at the Filmore on October
25 & 26 in 1968, which was the MK II Modies first US tour. I have found no
clarification as to which night it was of the two. As to how long it took
him to repair it, I have no clue, but if it was multiple Bugs Bunny
cartoons, 20 minutes sounds about right.

I had an excellent Rick Wakeman dream last night!!  He was giving a lecture of some sort to a smallish group of folks, and he teamed up with famed magician David Copperfield so that he began his lecture by rising up out of the floor!!  It was great!   He was in cape & everthing!  

My prog dreams are definitely related to how much time I spend on this site!!  Happy 2021 to all!!

I had a dream that Deerhoof released a third album in 2020, I even drew the cover:
There was a concert to promote it, although all I can remember was that most of it comprised of songs from La Isla Bonita

It was a lovely little dream and I wanted to share!  



I just had dream where an album I ranked very highly with only a few reviews to its name was trashed with a 2 and 1 star reviews shortly after my post. I just had this dream either last night or the night before.
