  • Bob Still Rocks

    I went to a Bob Dylan concert Sunday nite, here in San Diego. He did a mix of chestnuts, updated with different rhythems, phrasing, etc. This has been true of the concerts I have attended in the past. Kick ass versions of Maggie's Farm, Like a Rolling Stone and All Along the Watchtower (best I have heard, including Hendrix). A strange, but likeable Desolation Row (the tempo was sortta reggae/ska in nature). He did a few things off the latest album (mostly the R&B stuff) and some from the previous two albums. He had a five piece band, which kinda overpowered the ballads (not too many of those, but Every Grain of Sand was lost. Not one of RZs best songs anyway).

    In sum, the old fart (he is about 6 mos older than I) still puts on a pretty good show. I was bemused that he played only keyboard and harmonica. In the review this was attributed to arthritis problems.

    I saw this and I thought you were talking about Bob Rock who does too.

      Maybe this is why I was so horrible at "link these names". I have never heard of Bob Rock. Modern, oldie, what?

        I instantly thought of Bob Rock too. Probably because I had a few beers with him (uh-oh, name-drop alert!) at Shark hockey games when the Metallica boys (uh-h, double name-drop alert!) brought him along:-)

          The Tragically Hip begged him to produce their upcoming cd, World Container. I am not a huge fan(can't get rid of the probably unfair idea that they are CRTC/CANCON made) but I really like this track:

          Speaking of Canuck musicians, Tom Cochrane is back with at least one good single off his upcoming album.
