One of my favorite concert recordings is the Live 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue discs. Anyone else have that?

It's kind of funny that the Dylan Days festival seems to feature everything but.... Bob Dylan. :D

Oh well. I've been to Hibbing. I can understand why he wouldn't want to go back there.

Who?

Duh. Bob Dylan. He's only the greatest porn star of all time. He's been thugged out since cub scouts.

He sucked.

He sucked.

I saw him at Alpine Valley in 1990. He sucked then, too. Tracy Chapman opened for him and blew him off the stage. And I detest Tracy Chapman.

God, that was a painful night. At least the tickets were free. :#

Alpine Valley is a great venue. What else have you seen there?

I saw the Eagles (Melissa Etheridge opening) in '95. That was the best concert I ever saw.

I also saw a Monsters of Rock concert there in the early 90s. Some opening band I don't remember, Firehouse, Damn Yankees, Lynard Skynard and Poison. Everybody was good but Poison, who had a new lead guitarist who absolutely ruined the show.

And the Dylan/Chapman fiasco. I think that's it.

Wow, that's awesome. I've always wanted to see Joe Walsh live.

I saw Phish, The Other Ones, and Pearl Jam at Alpine Valley. Great experience every time I was there.

I've seen the Eagles three times - there, at the United Center (same tour) and at Summerfest in Milwaukee about five years ago. They put on a great show.

Highway 61


"Oh God said to Abraham, "Kill me a son"
Abe says, "Man, you must be puttin' me on"
God say, "No." Abe say, "What?"
God say, "You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin' you better run"
Well Abe says, "Where do you want this killin' done?"
God says, "Out on Highway 61."


I've never known just what this all meant but I sure like the song. How did they make that whistling sound?



Also.....Hurricane, Tangled up in Blue, Knockin' on Heaven's Door.

No shortage of great Dylan songs.

The old grump that lives in this mansion. He's about as good as Norah Jones.

That's where Stevie Ray Vaughan performed his last show before the plane crash.

All along the watchtower (I prefer Jimi's version)

Subteranean Homesick Blues... not sure why, but I just really like that song

Frazod

Those old videos... wow.... apparently there was NEVER a time when Dylan's vocals weren't awful. :spock:

The man is a masterful song writer.

He is also a skilled musician.

But his voice is and has always been a screeching icepick stab in the eardrum.

This will remain one of those things I just don't understand - like how people can drink grapefruit juice, or watch professional wrestling.

Definitely the greatest singer-songwriter of all time, though I know that styles not for everyone.
