I saw him last year and it was great, not as great as Macca. He has no communication with his audience.

I don´t think he plays guitar anymore?? He didn´t do that last and played keys. But the music is great!!

I´ve heard that there is a new album on its way from him

I wanted to be there! Couldn't afford it though (getting married at end of May). Saw him way back in 2002 though. Fantastic night.

Yes I have read he has arthritis so finds it difficult to keep guitar playing an entire gig now so often plays piano instead. Not that that would bother me, hell just to see his Bobness is always a treat!

Can't wait for his new album either.

Well, I had a great time. It was fantastic to see him in the flesh. We were on the floor, about 30 rows back, so not a bad view.

Opened with Maggie's Farm, he strangely played three tracks off The Times They Are A-Changin' (Title track, Hattie Carroll and Hollis Brown). Four or five off Modern Times, one each of Time Out of Mind and Love And Theft, Highway 61 too.

Sadly, no Simple Twist of Fate, but you can't have it all.

But great fun, even if the sound's a little samey throughout.

Looking forward to the new album dropping through my door tomorrow!

I want to go see him--

Dylan and Macca/Beatles are my two big ones-- Dylan is almost as much fun as a Macca in the bootleg dept. (The diff. of course is Bob's officially released a lot of his stuff- COME ON PAUL!)

Dylan is an amazing talent- try a song as complex as Tangled Up in Blue - its like a novel wrapped up into 5 minutes.
