jimi hendrix Monterey 1967

 Once upon a time you dressed so fine
Threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn’t you?
People call say ‘beware doll, you’re bound to fall’
You thought they were all kidding you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hanging out
Now you don’t talk so loud
Now you don’t seem so proud
About having to be scrounging your next meal

Here are 9 great cover versions of “Like A Rolling Stone”

Bob Dylan – On This Day – September 2

bob-dylan-and-bruce-springsteen 1995

“The performers who changed my life were individuals, They didn’t conform to any sense of reality but their own. The last performer who stood up to be counted as an original is Bruce Springsteen, I think. Individuals move me, not mobs. People with originality, whether it’s Hector, Achilles, Ted Turner or Jerry Lee Lewis or Hank Williams.”
~Bob Dylan (to Edna Gundersen, August 2006)

Bob Dylan – Great duets part 3: Friends on stage

A duet is a musical composition for two performers in which the performers have equal importance to the piece. It is often used to describe a composition involving two singers. It differs from a harmony, as the performers take turns performing a solo section rather than performing simultaneously.

Part1, Part2

Bob Dylan has done a lot of duets, we have collected some of our favourites and will present them in batches of three. This third post has three duets with people Bob Dylan has described as friends or brothers.

November 10: Bruce Springsteen released Live/1975–85 in 1986

live1975-85

It’s not enough. By anyone else’s standards, of course, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band Live/1975-85 is an embarrassment of riches — five albums and ten years’ worth of barroom, hockey-arena and baseball-stadium dynamite; greatest hits, ace covers, love songs, work songs, out-of-work songs — the ultimate rock-concert experience of the past decade finally packaged for living-room consumption, a special gift of thanks to the fans who shared those 1001 nights of stomp & sweat and the best possible consolation prize for the poor bastards who could never get tickets.
