Do you have your tickets yet???

I'll look for you! This will be the second time I've seen him at Pacific.
But...I don't have tickets yet. I kind of overspent my concert budget but am working on a "deal" :)

Ha ha! Fortunately I will not be there. I may however get caught in the relentless waves of his awful singing. It's transpacific I hear... :(

Sadly ignorant, I have no idea who this is . . . but he looks like my uncle Joe.

Never heard of him either. He looks redneck?

Oh my, I hope you are joking.

He is Robert Zimmerman.

I'll grant it's an odd picture you posted of him, but do people not really recognize the great and powerful wizard?!

The picture is from a show he did on the same day as filming some movie scenes. He kept the wig and other props on for the show!

Is this guy a friend of yours or can I speak my mind? :>)

Bob Dylan has one of the most fascinating voices in American music. For me, he has an amazing voice. (I should say "had" since I don't care for his voice for the last 10-12 years, as he has aged.)

He never had a whole lot of range -- and his range now is about as wide as a straw -- but his phrasing, the way he emphasizes certain words on certain lines, never the same way twice, is unmatched in American music.

You could listen to the same song from 30 consecutive concerts and be transfixed by the unique delivery of each one.

I missed this before the previous post. :>)

Before I call him a moron, I'd like to know how much of Dylan's music San Nakji has actually heard.

Different strokes and all that, but Dylan has done such different stuff for the last 45 years -- and sounded completely different year to year while doing it -- that I think it's impossible for him/her not to like something.

Over the course of 4 years in the late 70s, he went from what might be his best album "Blood on the Tracks" to the flat-out rock of his tour with the Band, to the Rolling Thunder Revue, to the Street Legal LP/tour, then on to the Christian stuff. In 4 YEARS!
