  1. I keep coming back to this concert. I pretty much watch every concert you put up Egil. HE never fails to stun me. This has something that draws me to it and I just don’t know what is. My generation knows nothing about Bob Dylan besides his name. 1 in 10 people will be able to name a song and 1 in 10 of them will name one other than Hurricane, atleast where I come from anyway. Such a talented man, regardless of his voice, guitar, harmonica or arrangements. Its how when he preformers he lets us see inside his soul. Roll on Bob!!!

  2. Thanks for using my picture, taken at Loreley July 1981 🙂
