George Harrison’s introduction for him at The Concert For Bangladesh was-“I’d like to bring you all a friend of us all- Mr. Bob Dylan.”
Bob Dylan has written so many classic songs over the years I wouldn’t know where to begin. I think in the future generations are going to discover new classics “How was this song of his overlooked back then?” The best compliment I can give Dylan is he is an ARTIST- not a trend follower. He’s always been unpredictable throughout his ups and downs.
Dylan is high on my favorites list- a distant second place to those Boys from Liverpool- that little outfit The Beatles. Favorite Bob song? Easy- Like A Rolling Stone- which may be my favorite song by anyone ever. Favorite album- a tie between his two classics– Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde. Dylan is second also in the concerts I have been to- I’ve seen Steve Earle close to thirty times, Dylan a more modest eight. If he comes back again on his ‘never ending tour” I will have to go one more time. Happy 77th Birthday Bob!!
