MYXPH.COM joins the whole nation in commemorating All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day. As we remember our faithfully departed loved ones, we continue our series of interviews with local artists as they narrate tales about those who have passed on.
Singer-songwriter EBE DANCEL shares his dreams about two of his friends from the music industry: electronica artist Wilfrid Hernandez aka Wolfmann, and keyboardist Ronnie Dizon. Wolfmann succumbed to aneurysm last August 21, 2005 while Ronnie died of respiratory arrest just last August 4, 2012.
This is Ebe Dancel's "Dreams Of The Dead":
"I've had dead friends visiting me in my dreams. The first was back in 2005, si Wilfred Hernandez, also known as Wolfmann. Binisita niya ako sa panaginip ko. Nagba-bike ako, lagi ako nalalag-lag. Lumapit siya sa akin.
"Sabi niya: 'What's your problem?' Sabi ko: 'Hindi ko ma-control yung bike ko eh.' And then he goes: 'You know, all you need to do is find your balance, tsaka iwas ka palagi sa mga balakid mo kasi sila 'yung magpapatumba sa 'yo. So medyo pilosopikal yung panaginip na 'yon."
"The next (dream), which is fairly recent; I was visited by my very good friend Ronnie Dizon. He passed away a few months ago. For some reason I was part of a team hunting down a bunch of criminals. So finally nahanap namin sila sa isang classroom."
"I found Ronnie there, tapos sabi niya: 'What are you doing here?' Sabi ko: 'What are YOU doing here? Ako, buhay ako. Ikaw patay ka na.' Sabi niya: 'No, I'm actually alive.' Nung na-realize ko na buhay siya, nag-iyakan kami, nag-yakapan kami... Inaya ko siya sa isang bar, he said he'd follow. But I woke up. When I woke up I was crying because I didn't want to wake up. I wanted to spend a few more minutes with my friend." "
"Those stories aren't actually very scary and if they visit me again... huwag lang araw-araw ha! I welcome them cause I miss my friends!"
