    Quite the concert! Even the Chief Justice was in the audience.

    He rarely does what you want him to to....just read a great article about Bob that basically said the audience is there for Bob's benefit, not the other way around. For classics you got Tangled, She Belongs to Me AND Blowin' In The Wind! Not bad!

    How was Mavis?

    Mavis was truly awesome! We had a special fan in the house sitting near us - John Roberts.

    It always makes me wonder about people whose politics seem so antithetical to the artists they enjoy (think Chris Christie and the Boss.) Robert and Dylan...guessing they wouldn't agree on much except how great Bob is!

    Just saw they're playing in Boston while we're there....hmmm.....

    "Complaining about Dylanís voice is like complaining that your scotch tastes too peaty. If you want something sweet, get a colorless spirit that easily surrenders to the overwhelming invasion of fruit juice. Otherwise, let his voice burn your ears just as it sounds like it is blistering his throat when he sings."

    Dylan on Dylan's voice (you're not surprised he has an opinion on everyone's opinion of him, are you?) LOL
