This is the story of a Ghost song I wrote about an experience I had with the real ghost of a woman actress from the 1800's. I was staying at a friends place in Longmont, Colorado last April 2006. The building that he owns used to be called 'The Times Call' building years ago.

In the late 1800's they used to print one of the local newspapers, 'The Times Call', on the 1st floor. There was a big explosion from a gunpowder barrel, in the basement next door in the 1870's, and the building and the adjacent buildings had to be rebuilt as a result of the fire that ripped through walls of half a city block. 'The Dickens Opera House' at the end of the street was spared. A bystander, who was standing on top of the opera house at the time of the explosion, was blown off to the roof of a building below. He was spared with an injured leg. A business across the street had all its windows blown in from the shock wave. The woman inside was frantic, and ran out of her shop screaming with the blood streaming down from her cuts and bruises.

After the dust settled, and a couple of years went by, the block was rebuilt and ready for action. 'The Times Call' building started printing again, but used the 2nd floor as a boarding house, instead of the owners living there. They rented out rooms, a hot bath, and a meal for people coming and going on the old locomotives and stage coaches. One of the patrons happened to be a semi-famous actress, who must have traveled across the country performing in various venues for the general public. I wish I knew her name.

These days the interior of the upstairs looks like something from an old western movie. There are old sky lights on the ceiling, the wall paper is slowly peeling off, and the hard wooden floors are warped as if everything is sinking into the middle of the main living room. In fact the water in the fish tank, against one of the walls, leans toward the center of the room. Watch out for the staircase that leads down to the street level. It leans one side higher than the other as well from old age.

The upstairs where I stayed had been closed off since 1964. There is a calendar hanging on one of the doors in the apartment looking over Main St. The page is still on April 1964.

Last spring while I was playing guitar and working on some new music, I thought I saw someone out of the corner of my eye. In fact, I'd been staying there for a few weeks by then, and thought I felt some sort of presence there. That night when I went to bed, I put on a video. 'The People Who Live Under the Stairs'. I fell asleep and I felt a cold whisper in my ear. I woke up to find the movie still playing and the face of a woman on the TV. screen. I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. That was about 2 a.m. in the morning. I tried to go back to sleep, but my mind was on high alert.

A few hours later I made some coffee, and started to play my guitar. I felt a presence in the room again, but it felt friendly, as if it liked what I was playing. As I played, I came up with a nice chord progression, some lyrics, and a cool chorus line. An hour or so later I finished writing my song called 'U Don't Know'. The vibe in the place was electric.

My friend Joe, the present owner of the building, came home around 10 a.m. I told him about my experience the night before, and the song that I wrote about it. He told me he knew about a presence in the building, but didn't want to scare me. He said he had had some friends over in the past that felt the same sort of energy that I did. He asked me what the ghost sounded like. I said 'A woman in her 30's mabye'. He asked me what she looked like. I described her and his jaw dropped to the floor.

Joe asked me to wait in the room while he went to get something. He came back ten minutes later with an old photograph he had been keeping in storage with other old artifacts. These things where still upstairs when he first bought the building a year before. Remember the upstairs had been locked up for years. When he showed me the photo, it was a black and white picture of a lady in her late 20's, dressed in an old western theater outfit. She was the same lady I had seen the night before. I was shocked!!!

I stayed there for a few more weeks, and every time I played guitar and sang she would let her presence be known. It was a friendly presence as it turned out. So now when I go to visit my friend Joe, at 'The Times Call' building, she lets me know she's still there.

Here's a link to the song I wrote about her

Music Biography- Jeff Knabel
Rhythm/Lead Guitarist & Lead Vocalist/Song Writer

Jeff Knabel

Jeff Knabel visit his official web site here knabel.homestead.com/Homepage.html


I've been playing guitar and writing my own songs for about 25 years. I started playing in Hawaii where I learned the basics of rhythm guitar. Then I moved to South Carolina where I learned the components of song writing. I started my first band there when I was sixteen. After that I moved to England where I got my first taste of recording in a studio and playing out live with Dave Hinton in 'Surge'. One of the bands I played in called 'Chain Reaction' got into the Top 100 in Amsterdam, Holland and various cities in Germany. I was also able to play in the Marquee in London twice, and the Oxford Apollo. My ability to compose on the guitar, bass, and keyboards lead me to meeting top musicians such as Phil Lynott from 'Thin Lizzy'. For my Highschool graduation I was elected to write our graduation song and was able to perform it with chosen choir singers from our school in the Oxford Town Hall in front of 400 people.


After three years in England I moved back to the states. I taught guitar and recorded in Omaha, NE. for a year and a half. Then I moved to Longmont, Colorado where I played in various bands, taught guitar, recorded, and made a music video with a band called the 'Tommy Knockers' that is still played to this day on local access stations. From there I spent three years in the Navy. In my spare time I would teach and write music.


My next big move was to New Zealand where I played in a band called 'Locomotive'. We played all over New Zealand off and on for about two years. During that time I studied music at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. I taught about 20 students to play guitar and write their own music for the three years I was residing there. The blues were the in thing in New Zealand at that time, so I wrote a lot of them.


I decided to do some more traveling down to Fiji where I won a local talent show and to Australia where I was able to play some open stage gigs in various cities there. Longmont, Colorado was calling so I headed home and formed a two piece band called 'Glass Staircase' with an old friend of mine. I programmed Midi music to play behind us and I played rhythm guitar and sang lead vocals, and Tim Forsyth played keyboards and sang harmony. From that a six piece band was formed called 'Naughty Naughty'. So for the past two years I performed with two bands, wrote all the original material, and recorded a C.D. at Blue Dream Studios with Joseph 'Hal' Racheli (Bass), Robin 'Bird' Smith (Mandolin), Jason Lynn (Lead Guitar), & Darcy Griffiths (Drums). Let me give a big 'Thanks' to those guy's for all their hard work and dedication.


I'm ready to teach guitar and record again here in the Christchurch area. If you are interested give me a call at (643) 389-5838. My address is Flat 5E, 32 Brittan St. Linwood. Christchurch, New Zealand 8001. E-Mail address jeffknabel@hotmail.com - Teaching beginners and songwriting techniques is my speciality. Listen to the new studio version of And Who Am I by "Lebanese Renegade". Ritchie Gillies did a great job on Lead Guitar and Harmony vocals.
