BBC - Audio slideshow: Bob Dylan at 70

Dylan's album Street Legal was one of the first albums I owned. I got it for my 15th  birthday, in the year of its release (1978). The opening track: Changing of the Guards.

How disappointing. Who the fuck, Mr. Dylan, do you think you were singing about in Masters Of War anyway ? Maybe you need to reread your lyrics to Neighborhood Bully again, sellout !

Happy Birthday, Mr. Dylan

In honor of Bob Dylan's 70th birthday, and to celebrate his upcoming concert in Israel, writers and musicians choose the Dylan song that means the most to them. A (concise) tribute.

This is quite funny. Someone doing a Bob dylan impression put up that awful song 'Friday By Rebecca Black' that is becoming an internet hit and the video is just an old Columbia 7" with  'Friday - Bob Dylan' on it. Already has over 2 million hits alone, people are actually commenting saying 'back in 68, my dad used to play this song all the time! etc. Blatant lies basically, the comments are as funny as the song itself.

Check it out, doesn't even sound like Bob! (worth watching the original song first i think to make it funnier)

For die-hard Dylan fans. Interesting history of bygone days when America had SPIRIT & people were ALIVE & you can feel it just by reading the essay.

We all knew Dylan's kid was the frontman before we heard the song... even tho they didn't really play it up, everyone knew.

Either way, the Dough Rollers got my "go see 'em" before I knew any of this so anybody out there who wants to see a cool set of music should look them up.
 
 Yup, they've got my endorsement as well. Granted, I'm a sucker for that sort of music, anyhoo, but they really do have talent and played with feeling. The Byrne kid isn't virtuoso, but he's got a very firm grasp of old blues style, and he plays a mean slide. Malcom Ford's vocals were, as you mentioned, kind of an affectation, but he's got pipes.
 
I also wanted to mention that Mellencamp started his set with the whole "We're gonna teach you how to count" bit again last night. The drummer came in on 4, but I think you have your answer as to why he did what he did in Billings.

You're right, Mellencamp's performance was sort of wooden.  Not bad, really, but lacking spark or something.  Dylan and band still kick. Setlist is here.  It was the first time I've got to hear him play Girl from the North Country, so that was kinda cool.

The Dough Rollers

Wednesday, Aug. 11 2010
Billings Montana (Dehler Park baseball field)

Show opened with the Dough Rollers from New York. Introduced by the nervous-in-front-of-a-crowd Mayor as the doughboys. Either way, don't miss them. They only get 30 minutes and they hit about 6 different genres of old-timey music, most of it updated about 50 years or so to bring it to a pre-Elvis sound. Two guys, kids really, one sings and plays, the other just plays very well and grunts occasionally. They wear some cool old suits with wide ties, the singer eventually shucked enough of his suit that we could see he was all tatt'd up and so that  and his Tom Waits gruff strikes you as a put-on at first and well it is, of course, but they pull it off. What a great duo to catch in a little dive bar somewhere. They were pretty jacked up to be playing for the crowd of 8 or 9 thousand and kept referring to Mr. Mellencamp and Mr. Dylan... Anyway, good stuff, don't be late.

Yup. Those shows are the bestest. Loose 'n' off the cuff, combined with great musicians makes for interesting concerts.

Yeah, that was cool. Just post-heart-attack so Bob was really trying to prove something, I guess.
 
I wasn't paying as close attention last night so I might have missed more of it but Bob did take lead at least once. Three guitars up there so I have to study their hands to try to figure out what noises are coming from who and I did that one time so it could have been more. All I can say is Charlie's pretty frickin' nimble because I don't think a whole lot of that is scripted. There were a couple of "I got it you take it" panics up there and I just think that's fun. Like every night at a jazz show I guess. Mellencamp, by contrast, totally note-for-note as far as I could tell. Except for song #1 when the first thing he says is "We're gonna teach you to count right now: 1!—2!—3!—4!" but the drummer came in on 3 and made all the rest of the band go "oh crap" and point at the drummer and laugh.

Thanks!  We plan on getting to the field plenty early - I hate missing out on opening acts, as they're occasionally my favorites.  I'm really glad to hear that Charlie Sexton is back with his touring band.  The last time we saw Dylan was in '03, sans Sexton.  Good, but...The show in 2000 had Dylan taking lead guitar (he's extremely competent, sort of surprised me) with Charlie on rhythm.  I'm curious to see the Dylan on keys, Sexton on lead guitar lineup.  We'll let you know if we get rained/lightninged/wind-ed out!

What a great duo to catch in a little dive bar somewhere. They were pretty jacked up to be playing for the crowd of 8 or 9 thousand and kept referring to Mr. Mellencamp and Mr. Dylan... Anyway, good stuff, don't be late.
 
Mellencamp came on at 7:30, big bass thump that turns your guts to jelly but there just hasn't ever been enough there to make me whoop and holler so Charlie and I went for a snowcone and Charlie played on the bullpen pitcher's mound for most of the show. Scarecrow was the only thing that made me turn and listen. It's a cut above his usual stuff, musically, I think. Lyrically they're all fine. He's done a lot of good over the years so I was glad to see him.
 
Dylan. Huge. Great weather, nice entrance. Took him about 5 songs to get his voice up to normal and of course "normal" in his case is a rough croak so the first few were remarkably unintelligible at any speed. Great, tho. The arrangements were different from what I remember from 10 years ago. All electric. Zero conversation with the audience (par for the course with Dylan) until the encore when he introduced the band. It was Charlie Sexton's birthday so Bob led us all in singing Happy Birthday dear Charlie (twice) which a certain boy in the crowd was particularly impressed with.
 
Sound was good, Rollers adequate volume, quite pleasant. Mellencamp loud, bass-heavy. Dylan smokin' loud, all persons in  the outfield should have hearing protection. We retreated to the grass to the left field side, out of the direct line of the speakers so it wasn't too bad, and we could still see. 80% of the grass was covered with a rigid "portafloor" plastic to protect the grass, but off to the sides we could sit on grass. Dylan occupied stage right with the organ and came toward the center when he played guitar but was still right-most. So if you're going to stake out a side of the stage, go left and you'll still be able to see him when the players on the left of the stage are hidden behind the stacks. Charlie Sexton is center stage primarily.
 
None of Dylan's songs adhered to the studio arrangements and most had different hooks and fills so you might not recognize any of them right from the start. That makes it fun. And Dylan's lyrics pile up like snow in a fence so your brain's singing along thinking "to be without a home!" and he's singing " . . . . . . . . . . . tbethoutahome!"
 
Go early have a good time good night.
