We still see the late Peter Bardens 'In Dreams'

July

Many videos in the ‘80s started out with grand notions of trying to create a piece of art by combining rock n roll with great cinematography, but only a few seem to achieve the effect that leaves you feeling inspired.

One video that might have the goods is Peter BardensIn Dreams. The video combines artsy dream aspects such as opening doors with zooming landscapes to create a hypnotic video. The single reached No. 41 on the Mainstream Rock charts in 1987.

Who is Pete Bardens? Bardens is a veteran rock keyboardist who played with popular ‘60s English bands like Camel and Them before striking out on his own in the ‘80s. Them is famous for band mate Van Morrison and recording the original version of the classic Gloria that was made more popular in the ‘70s by The Doors and Patti Smith.

Bardens died of lung cancer in 2002.
