Bass or music related nightmares?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by reasonbass, Jan 14, 2012.

  1. Has anyone ever had nightmares of their gear getting destroyed or anything like it?

    2 days ago I had a dream that I turned on my Mesa/Boogie Bass 400+ and I saw a tube heat up and catch on fire. The suddenly my whole amp was on fire!! I woke up in a cold sweat.

    So anyone have any stories to share?

    Of course. In my recurring dream a band I am in is setting up for a gig, and my rig is malfunctioning. No matter what I do, I can't get a sound out of it; the band starts without me and until I wake up I am struggling to no avail to get it working.

    I have this dream just about as often as the one where I am walking into a final exam in a class I have never attended and the one where I suddenly find myself walking around the halls at work in my underwear.

    I scratched my new bass only 3 days after bringing it home, so I had nightmares where it was almost torn to pieces because I was really scared of scratching it again and my mind kept that fear even during my sleep!!!

    I had a dream that my drums had been stolen. I found them in a college dorm and the thief had been justified by the police to steal them.

    I always vividly dream I've been cleaned out by burglars. Studio's empty to the walls.

    I also dream I buy an instrument that gets worse every time I look at it until it just becomes junk.
