Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones keeps a tape machine triggered by sound next to his bed. Sometimes he wakes up with a guitar riff in his head, plays it, goes back to sleep, and forgets it until the morning when he finds it on the machine.

The riff in Satisfaction was written this way, I think.

That is amazing!

I usually can't make heads or tails of my nocturnal scrawlings, but every so often I have an epiphany. You never know what's lurking in the recesses of the dreaming mind.

Alas, I never forget to eat. The rest is similar.

I missed that part of being a tortured artist too :(
