Here comes the weird part Jerry showed me the Intro to "Cream Puff Wars" and I just checked the tabs and the Intro Jerry showed me in the dream was actuall the real Intro, but Ive never even seen the Intro!!!!!!!!!!! How strange is that!?
Wow, that IS a weird dream....but a great one!
Reminds me of a dream I had about 2 months ago...one I'll NEVER forget. It was too real...
I found myself onstage at a Dead show, but it was a '90's line-up. I was at the front left of the stage (if you're standing on the stage) and the crowd was huge - bigger than one that could fill any stadium we've ever seen, but it was a stadium, that I am sure. The emotion swept over me soooooo hard though when I turned and looked at Jerry. He looked soooo good, sooo healthy. He had lost weight, his beard was trim, and his hair was short and neat. He looked so happy and healthy that I began to cry - literally. I woke up crying, and really for 2 reasons: one, because of the emotion, but two, because I didn't want to leave that dream.
It was so real...I could feel and taste the fresh outdoor air on my skin, there was a light breeze blowing, it was mid-day, I'd say around 4 or 5 p.m. And I must've been onstage when they came out, because the place was going absolutely nuts. Jer just looked around, smiled HUGE, looked over at Bob (I was to Bob's left, so when Jer was looking at Bob I could see right at his face) and gave him a little nod, and he starts the opening chords to Touch. It was so weird, too, because Bobby had longer hair like he did back in the late '70's, and when I looked at Phil, it was Phil like he looked like back in the late '60's/early '70's. I don't remember Mickey, Billy, or Brent, but I knew it was Brent on keys because of that synth sound I heard during Touch. So strange....
It may sound cheesy, but I'm telling you, I've never felt more alive, never felt more emotion in a dream before in my life. I believe that those dreams are real; somewhere, somehow, there's a world that exists because of our dreams, and we're all there. I lived it for a few minutes in that dream.
Keep dreaming - it's the dreaming that's real.
