Music and more

Did you know Bob Dylan is seventy years old today?  He said years ago he wanted to emulate those old blues men who just keep touring and touring until eventually they fall over—which is just what Bobs’ been doing these last few decades, all the while seemingly about to fall over almost every concert.

Here’s a fast survey of Bob’s back pages, courtesy of Graham Reid’s Elsewhere. And here he is with Alan Ginsberg inventing music videos. Happy birthday, old feller.

And here’s a tribute by Hugh Cornwell.

(And speaking of Graham Reid’s Elsewhere, if you like modern music and don’t subscribe to his regular newsletters… shame on you. Do it now.)
