My best wishes go out to Mark Knopfler. Gosh - I hope his hands and arms are OK. I have been listening to Ragpicker's Dream a bit lately. I love the relationship he had with Chet Atkins. Some of my favourite local guitarist play Dire Straits songs.__________________
He was the soundtrack to my life before Bowie and U2 came along.
I heard Pete Seger tell the story of the folk music festival where a very young Bob Dylan first performed with an amplified "electrick geetar". There were also lumberjack/woodchopping events going on at this festival and some irate person was going to chop up his Bob's gear with an axe. They thought he was evil and threatening.
I've mentioned this here before, but its' a fond, fond memory. He was on tour in Australia in 2001 and decided to unexpectedly add a concert in a rural area.Tickets were hard to get. It sold out very quickly.
Of all the little towns in this big old world, he chose the one I went to high school in. I got a last minute unwanted ticket that involved me contacting an ex-robber, a cowboy and a preacher (felt like material for a Bob Dylan song). It was the week of my 40th birthday and there I was, dancing not 20 feet from Bob Dylan( and Charlie Sexton!!) It felt like such a wonderous gift.
My sister and I used to go halvies in records, she has the Dylan ones, except for Blood On The Tracks. RAGE did a Dylan special last year. so i have a lot of his film clips on tape. They are amazing too.
