Another Dream: The Beatles, Clapton and Springsteen.


So here's a dream I had last night that I'm totally not making up.

I was asked to drive The Beatles, Clapton and Bruce Springsteen to a concert on a bus. It was weird because the Beatles were the 1965 Beatles but Clapton and Springsteen were the modern day guys.

A friend was with me and we had to pull into a gas station to get gas. The Beatles were being really cool to us but they didn't want a mob scene so we were asked to "keep cool". One of them asked if we could put some of their equipment in trunk.

We were dying for someone to see who we had in the bus so as a lady was walking out of the convenience store part of the gas station I said really loudly,

"OK, Let's just put these guitars that we have from The Beatles in the trunk..guitars from the rock group - The Beatles - going into the trunk now....."

The lady came over and looked in. Paul came out and started making small talk. He then asked if I had taken acid. I said no and he pulled out a colorful post-it note that had a rip taken out of it. I told him that the rip was from where I tore it because I had to write a telephone number down and I needed a piece of paper. Which was true.

Paul said, "Oh it's just a post-it note? I thought it was a sheet of acid. Oh that's cool. I was just wondering if you were tripping."

Sorry, no funny punchline - just another real dream I had. They also jammed at one point and were playing a Herman's Hermits song but I forget which one. And Clapton was playing the drums. I swear.

I'm glad the Beatles in your dream were of the 1965 version.

Otherwise a dream with two senior rockers and a couple of zombies would be classified as a nightmare.

I've got pot if you want some. It makes me dream as well. Except most of the time I'm awake.

Belle - Yes. Please send some weed. As you'll be shipping it from the UK, please write "Strattfordshire Ceramic Cow" on the package to throw customs off the trail.

You seriously need to lay off the sauce before bedtime.

I think maybe you should lay off the spicy food before bedtime? Just sayin...

Well..if even Paul,inside a dream, asked if you were tripping...you really need to concentrate deeply and dream about Freud and ask him personally what's your inconscious mind is trying to tell you!

O.k., I am totally not joking - Your dream is telling you that you are comfortable with all of the components of your life, past, present, & future. But you are also seeking some recognition for "not getting your party on", and staying focused.
I met John Lennon, btw, a couple of years before he died. Nice guy.

You have the best dreams!!

Chris said...

Did you happen to have Colbert on in your sleep last night? Seriously, he interviewed McCartney and they had some bit about the Beatles started as a band that had Clapton, the Yardbirds, etc, etc. in it until they pared them down to the final four. Perhaps that got into your brain as you slept?

I will forever be a faithful follower as you speak of the Beatles and Weed! :) Cheers to you!!!

Dr Zibbs said...

Chris - interesting but I had the TV off last night.

Gwen said...

Since when do buses have trunks? I think you WERE tripping. I can't believe you lied to Paul.

Dr Zibbs said...

Gwen - OK, it wasn't really a trunk it was a side hatch.

As in the Tenacious D song Double Team: ....."Me and KG come naked out of the side hatch - with oils and perfumes and insense. Now you're groovin' put on a cool seventies groove.....A funky groove to fuck to.... A funky groove to fuck to..."

Cora said...

I'm with Falwless - whatcha been drinkin', Zibbs? No, please, I wanna know.
