|bright light, missing time
Although this happened many years ago, I am just now able to talk about it. I struggled for years as to whether this was an actual event or just some sort of hallucination...
The year was 1968, I was playing guitar and traveling the country with a band in a small VW van. We criscrossed the USA playing music, groovin' with the groupies and partaking of the various indigenous plant life.
We were in Arizona playing at a local club just outside of Phoenix, can't recall the name of the place, but it was a stone cold groove that night! After the gig around 2 or 3 AM we were hanging out in the van having some 'sandwiches' when one of the guys noticed a bright light in the distance. We all thought it was the cops cause it was so bright, like a search light.
Being ever suspicious of the 'man' back then, we stowed our 'sandwiches' and waited. Well it didn't take long before we realized it was not a cop car search light. But something we could not explain. At first I thought maybe it was the 'sandwiches' but I wasn't the only one that saw this thing. Some of us started giggling uncontrollably, I wet myself, and our sound guy fainted.
Next thing I know I am in a room laying on a table looking up at some very bight lights. Not cool... I was freakin' out. Then things started to get weird.
Two skinny pale dudes, with big eyes. I can't talk about what all they did, I think I blocked it out to keep my sanity. However I had the a sour stomach for a couple of weeks afterwards, difficulty urinating. Kind of a cruel preview of how things are for me at age 60.
I don't remember being returned to the van, but we all woke up in the van naked, which in itself was quite traumatic. Several hours had passed, but none of us could clearly recall what happened.
None of use ever talked about what happened that night, it was too weird and strange, even for the 60's, and that is saying something.
I know this all sounds crazy, but it REALLY DID happen.
What can I do to get some help? I still have night terrors, flash backs and more from this incident. I found your site using the Google, I have no where else to turn.
Thank you for listening.
