Bob Dylan at the Forum last night

Wow.

Last time we saw him, last tour, it was as if he wasn't interested in being Bob Dylan just then. He sang like he was sucking helium, and the arrangements were such that the songs were barely recognizable.



Last night was different. He played lots of new stuff from the last three albums, which all sounded great. Tangled Up In Blue, my favorite Dylan song, got a bit of a late-day Who treatment--big drums, rolling bass and some Pete-style acoustic work. The band was tight and loose and freaking great. Bob played keyboards and harp only, no geetar at all. His voice sounded old and ragged and Bob Dylany and wonderful. He didn't say a word to the audience except to introduce the band at the end.

Kings of Leon opened and sounded considerably better than they did a few years ago. They played some new stuff, which sounded a bit different from the first two albums. I'm not sure if I liked it as much or not. Their old stuff sounded great. The audience loved them as well.


Steve and I had a very good time, thank you very much.

Great show, great show at the Forum last night.

I am in awe of Bob Dylan. The older I get the more I appreciate his brilliance.

Nellie Moore and Thunder on the Mountain.

KOL opening for Dylan?

Shouldn't their be a quota for god-like opening slots for newer bands?

I love KOL, though, so, what the . . .

Starting to wish I'd gotten Nashville tickets.

cool

i'm looking forward to seeing him next month (and looking forward to not seeing the kings of leon. we've got the ranca-whatsitcalled opening, and while i'm not a fan, nothing could be worse than KOL).

Bob Dylan and U2 disagree.
