Bob Dylan: Live 1980 – 1989 (Video & audio)

bob dylan 1987

Well, performers feel that.., they don’t feel they’re adversaries, but they do feel that…
they feel a lot of times that their points are not taken the right way or they feel imposed
upon to answer questions that have really little to do with why they fill halls or sell
~Bob Dylan (to Dave Herman, July 1981)

Well, every tour is different you know, and each show is different. It’s always, uh, they
change, from this year to last year. Probably two years ago, you would have seen a
different show.
~Bob Dylan (Verona press conference, May 1984)

I’ve always loved to travel and play my songs, meet new people and see different places. I
love to roll into town in the early morning and walk the deserted streets before anybody gets
up. Love to see the sun come up over the highway.
Then, of course, there’s playing on the stage in front of live people, feeling hearts and minds
moving. Everybody don’t get to do that. Touring to me has never been any kind of hardship.
It’s a privilege.
~Bob Dylan (to Edna Gundersen, July 1988)
