Born 71 years ago today as Robert Allen Zimmerman, Bob Dylan may be the most prolific American poet and song writer alive today. His music spans the spectrum of folk, protest, ballad, country, gospel and rock ‘n roll. Heavily influenced by folk balladeers Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger, Dylan became a regular on the Greenwich Village scene in the early 60′s. In 1965 he performed his live first electric set at the Newport, Rhode Island Folk Festival and was booed off the stage after 3 songs. The folk/protest crowd felt that Dylan had betrayed their movement and sold out to the pop culture which they despised. This was a liberating moment for Dylan who ventured on to write and record in many different genres.

In September 1999 I took the family to see Bob Dylan and Paul Simon when they performed in Austin. It was a great show with Paul Simon leading off. At the end of Simon’s set, Dylan came out and jammed with Simon on The Boxer. At the end of Dylan’s set, Simon came out and jammed with Dylan on Like a Rolling Stone.  The show was just spectacular. The next day the music editor of The Austin American Statesman wrote a somewhat critical article saying that “Dylan should never play lead guitar”. That editor quite obviously didn’t understand that Dylan’s musical and lyrical style is distinctly discordant and is part of makes Dylan… Dylan.

Happy Birthday, Bob and I wish you many more.

A guide to Dylan’s albums can be found here.

    I’m amused that you embed “Like a Rolling Stone” while mentioning Pete Seeger in the thread intro. Seeger famously tried to cut Dylan’s amp cables at the Newport Folk Festival when he was set to perform “Like a Rolling Stone” with an electric guitar.

    Seeger had invented “folk music” along with Alan Lomax. Now, don’t get me wrong; we owe these two Harvard-educated communists an immense debt for going around and collecting material that would have otherwise been lost—but we have to understand that this was being done, as long ago as the 1930s, for the purpose of the Communist Party taking control of the “music of the people,” and, thereby, the voice of the people. The Gramscian takeover of American culture has been going on for a very long time.

    Dylan was willing to go against that; he was willing to use the instruments of “the people”—i.e., electric guitars (just as Bob Wills had done before him)—rather than consent to being a fly in amber in the service of a frozen leftwing vision of “the people.” It was that heresy—a musical Trotskyism, if you will—that prompted Seeger’s attack on Bob Dylan’s amps.

    Completely different experience when we went to the same venue (it was at The Woodlands Mitchel Pavilion). Paul Simon’s band rocked. Bob Dylan -- not so much. Dylan was so wasted he fell down on stage, couldn’t sing or play. Simon tried to carry him, but it was so bad our group left early.

    My amusement comes from the implacable hatred Seeger and his folkie minions directed at Dylan for straying off the plantation (or, as Dylan himself put it, “Maggie’s Farm”). As to Seeger being an early influence on him, yeah, I guess so—though I have to wonder how much Seeger was an “influence” and how much Dylan actually saw him as a gatekeeper to be placated.

    The folk/protest folks turned on Dylan when he wanted to go in different directions. Typical lib snobbery. As to Seeger’s influence, I have no personal knowledge. Just what I read. I didn’t become a Dylan fan until the late 70′s.

    Sorry, I just don’t get Dylan. Never have. But, there are a few people and groups that are held in high esteem that I just can’t stand.

    Maybe I’ve just listened to the wrong stuff from Dylan. All I get is somebody mumbling incoherently with guitar in the background.

    Dylan, Beatles, Led Zep. They were new and exciting if all you had before was Nat King Cole, Elvis and Doo Wop. I suppose much of it has to do with the decade in which you spent your formative years. I have absolutely no appreciation for most of the “music” that has come out since the mid 80′s. Sounds like noise to me.

    Krauthammer just excoriated Obama on O’Reilly for burning two agents, the Pakistani doctor and the Yemen double agent, so he could crow about his achievements. I’d throw Osama’s death in with that, we should have sat on that so as to make maximum use of the intel we got, instead Obama couldn’t wait one minute to get on the air and yell “I got him!”

    I saw that. O’Reilly said “Well, then… you think that… blah, blah, blah.” K-Hammer didn’t blink and immediately replied with “I don’t think; I just showed you”. YESSSSSS.

    Necessarily, alas, once again; I’d do some emphasis, but the whole thing is of a piece:

    The Servant When He Reigneth
    —Rudyard Kipling

    “For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear. For a servant when he reigneth, and a fool when he is filled with meat; for an odious woman when she is married, and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.” –Prov. 30: 21-22-23.

    Three things make earth unquiet
    And four she cannot brook
    The godly Agur counted them
    And put them in a book—
    Those Four Tremendous Curses
    With which mankind is cursed;
    But a Servant when He Reigneth
    Old Agur entered first.

    An Handmaid that is Mistress
    We need not call upon.
    A Fool when he is full of Meat
    Will fall asleep anon.
    An Odious Woman Married
    May bear a babe and mend;
    But a Servant when He Reigneth
    Is Confusion to the end.

    His feet are swift to tumult,
    His hands are slow to toil,
    His ears are deaf to reason,
    His lips are loud in broil.
    He knows no use for power
    Except to show his might.
    He gives no heed to judgment
    Unless it prove him right.

    Because he served a master
    Before his Kingship came,
    And hid in all disaster
    Behind his master’s name,
    So, when his Folly opens
    The unnecessary hells,
    A Servant when He Reigneth
    Throws the blame on some one else.

    His vows are lightly spoken,
    His faith is hard to bind,
    His trust is easy broken,
    He fears his fellow-kind.
    The nearest mob will move him
    To break the pledge he gave—
    Oh, a Servant when he Reigneth
    Is more than ever slave!

    I’m good with most of the 50s and 60s and 80s. The 70′s, 90s, and everything up to date is mostly a waste of time.

    Give me Elvis, Marty Robbins, Dion, Del Shannon, Skid Row, Quiet Riot, Europe, dozens of others.

    If given a choice I will listen to talk radio. Radio annoys me, too repetitive.


  34. 34 | May 24, 2012 9:32 pm

    This is the thread where I confess… I learned to play guitar playing Bob Dylan. When I first starting playing guitar my mom bought me “The Songs of Bob Dylan: From 1966 Through 1975” And I taught myself to play out of that book.

    Of course there were a whole lot of other books that followed later, books on different styles and techniques, Jazz, Classical, Rock and Roll, Metal, but yes, it all started with Bob Dylan and my really wanting to be able to play this song.

    Egggzakly. I used to make snide critical comments when everyone would put up that damn cacophony that many here call music. Then I thought… “Damn, I’m starting to sound like everybody’s dad… Time to back off, dewd“. I then remembered… I’m probably old enough to be almost everybody’s dad.

    Most of Texas burned down last summer and they couldn’t get a disaster declaration from Obama.

    Remember according to that teacher if you say something not nice about obama you could get arrested.

    This morning in Chicago the TSA profiled infant formula

    explosives & drugs.
    Blue eyed baby girls are the threat!

    Yeah Texas and Louisiana and most of the Gulf States do not have much love for the ‘one’. Could be why he never comes down here.

    Holy hell, the Onion needs to redo this article for the current administration. This is hilarious.

    Oh and Lily, the part that got me the most was when they immediately decided that since it was #1 it had to have been due to cheating. The ridiculous part about that is that conservative books consistently outsell liberal crap. I’ve seen more conservative books at #1 on the bestseller lists than any other kind of non-fiction, except for maybe history.

    If he could find a way to do it, yea he would, but then he would have to arrest every moderate or conservative blogger in America, and I do not doubt for one second that the thought hasn’t crossed his mind.

    My favorite blast from the past when it comes to anonymous.

    6am, door busted down (NOT KIDDING), “FBI FBI FBI POLICE FBI GET YOUR ARMS UP AND DONT MOVE THEM. WALK DOWNSTAIRS RIGHT NOW. DO NOT MOVE YOUR HANDS.” — TWO *REAL* GUNS POINTED AT ME.

    me in 1 cop car, gf in other car.

    took 3.5 hrs, all electronic devices taken including 3 computers. said nearly nothing. finally left.

    The shock of the dumb SOB, REAL GUNS! Apparently destroying peoples lives, hurting business, and attacking national security isn’t supposed to have real world repercussions.
