Johnny Cash did it first and better.

Bob Dylan is still alive?

Ugh, Bob Dylan. Halfway decent songwriter, horrible musician.

Well, it's about time he stopped working for that biatch Maggie.

"What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do."

Say what you will about the tradeoffs the universe made between awesome songwriting and how-many-off-key-notes-must-a-singer-sing / before-we-concede-Bob-was-right...

I still can't understand what he is saying!

The article does pose a rather difficult question at the end. I don't know if my answer is, "Ballad of a Thin Man", "4th Time Around", or "If You See Her, Say Hello".

He was doing metal vocals before Kam Lee* made it popular

It's official. With Lou Reed gone, Bob Dylan is now the coolest man in the world.

I'm more of a Neil Young guy, honestly. Bob played some shows round these parts a few years ago, 3-4. Was the worst performance ever; most people who attended were sorely disappointed. Neil, by contrast, gave an excellent and very robust performance.

Lou Reed and Metallica together was like shiat and toothpaste in a blender.

He should just twist his hair into two nappy horn, wear clothing that's akin to 10 lbs of cr4p in a 5 lbs bag, gyrate with all the modesty of an addicted street walker with his tongue grotesquely jutting forth like he's proud of his herpes infected digestive appendage.  THEN he'd be trendy...

If you go into a Dylan concert wanting to hear old songs as they appear on albums, you will be disappointed.
If you go into a Dylan concert wanting to hear songs in Dylan's 1965 voice, you will be disappointed.

If you go to a Dylan concert, you will hear new arraignments of old songs.  You will hear newer (post 2000) songs more like the album versions.

I took my 16 year old daughter to see Dylan this summer, and he re-arraigned her favorite Dylan song, She Belongs to Me.  But she thought Love Sick was the best song of the night.

I appreciate the contributions Bob Dylan has made to music, but nobody goes to see him to hear post 2000 material, in a post 2000 arrangement. Well, maybe that 10-20% of the crowd that is the "die hard followers" of any group, but for everyone else, it's a letdown.

A good mixture, even, heavily weighted towards new material.

But honestly, he just had zero energy left. It was like night and day with Neil's show.

Neil puts on a great show.  I think part of the problem is Dylan doesn't play guitar anymore "out front"  He is off to the side playing keys.

Au contrare.

Saw him at Shoreline in Mt. View, CA this summer. Blew Wilco and My Morning Jacket out of the water. Dylan's presence is powerful. His performances work at multiple levels of consciousness. Takes time to unfold from within.

My brother had tickets in the first ten rows at Shoreline for many years because he was an original season ticket holder. Saw many shows over the years and he has been the best IMO.

I like Dylan (here it comes) BUT I saw him a few years ago and it was terrible. I'm all for different levels of consciousness and internally unfolding things, but sometimes you don't want Rainy Day Women #12 and 35 to take 4 versus to be recognized.

But I might have to go see him again, this headline made me think for a second that he had passed away and that made my heart skip a beat. He is one of my favorite favorites.

But I have seen him live when he did kick ass so maybe it was an off night. Maybe he just doesn't give a f*ck. I bet it is the last one.

I'm spoiled. First time I saw him was Thanksgiving night 1975. It was close to 25 years before I saw him again, and then a half dozen times over about a 5 year stretch, but that Rolling Thunder show was hard to top.

Uh, blew Wilco out of the water? I'm not even a Wilco guy (I play blackened metal) but I find that unlikely.

Look, Dylan may be a poet, and he may have been a musician of merit, but in recent years, he's more like Deputy Dawg. Barely awake, unrecognizable songs sung with little enthusiasm or strength.

I respect the man, and his work, but it was more embarassing than Ric Flair, and I say this as a a man who still finds Ric Flair's antics funny.

Dylan is not interested in being in the center anymore. He could easily play old classically arranged hits and skyrocket, but chooses to continue to create. He still has something to say.

Standing behind his piano he was playing how and what he wanted to play. Just like the meme says: A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between he gets to do what he wants to do.

But beyond all that... Man there is just something about Dylan when he turns it on (which he did at the start of his set) that stood every hair on my body on end and still sends tingles up and down my spine if I think about it. There is something that cannot be captured on film. He's transcendent and one must feel the Dylan experience. That's why, I believe, he is on the endless tour.

And the steam punk work. What he is saying about fences keeping keeping in as much as out. Good stuff, man.
