Happy 80th birthday to the one and only Bob Dylan.
In two days, it will be fifty-five years since I went to the Albert Hall in London to see Bob Dylan. There were walk outs and cat calls in the second half as Dylan went electric accompanied by the earliest iteration of The Band (most of whom were from The Hawks).
I have a memory-sense that I enjoyed both halves of the show just as well, though the second half, the electric half, was still unexpected even though one knew it was going to happen.
It is hard to believe that he died 40 years ago today. There has never been another quite like him, and I doubt there ever will.
