Hey, Cool. As I am sitting here bopping to the radio and Dylan's "Hurricane," I see my computer screen flicker. When I look over I see this new post. Love Dylan. As for the Yanks. I've had zippo time to watch them for 2 weeks. Picked a good time I s'pose.

I always feel sorry for those poor souls who don't "get" Bob Dylan. Poor suckers, they're really missing out.

Happy 69th, Zimmy!

[3] Wait, what?!?!?!?

You like Dylan?

*head explodes*

I would have bet money in Vegas you didn't care for Dylan.

Wow. Life throws a mean curveball ...

/Astonished, but don't take that the wrong way.

Saw him for the first time in the '70s. He was "reinventing" his songs so much that I didn't realize until the last line of one particular song that it was Tangled Up In Blue. Sometimes his concerts were out there.

He does rule!

I remember when Blood on the Tracks came out it was a comeback of sorts The previous years with releases like Nashville Skyline, Self Portait, Pat Garret ST were not critical highpoints for Dylan. Blood on the Tracks was held out at arms length by fans, but in time it came to be a beloved album that has a sort of modern production that never sounds dated.

After this album, the Basement Tapes were released, that solidified Dylan's place in music beyond the "voice of a generation".

He is arguably the greatest american poet...ever, and is certainly a national treasure.

Happy Birthday, and stay forever young!
