By gosh, he's coming to my town. All those years of going to the mountain, and the mountain is coming to me. He's gonna play at Casino Rama in July. Who'da thunk it? Beauty, eh? ;-) People are wondering if he'll drop in at the Mariposa Folk Festival...my guess would be, probably not, but you never know.

"People are wondering if he'll drop in at the Mariposa Folk Festival"

I believe he did ONCE - and was heard to mutter "Never again", just before he jumped in the lake and swam away from the crush of fans (that was when it was one Toronto Island ... if that's what it's called ... ).

I know that he smokes like a chimney and I've also heard that he drinks a lot of expensive Scotch whisky. That would be bound to have an effect after awhile.

They once had a smoke-off between Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell to see who could injest more nicotine in a 24 hour period. The judges were unable to determine the winner because the air was so full of smoke by 6 PM that they couldn't see who was ahead...and the pile of butts around the contestants was so high by that point that no one could get near them.

(That was a joke, okay?)

Good on you, such fun! What are the dates (I have some quasi-family up that way)? There's nothing like having your personal hero come to *you* for a change. Puts me in mind of the time I got to see Martin Carthy at a teensy club I frequent for $10, *and* he was only about 5 feet from my face!

As for ol' Bob's personal appearance, his increasing resemblance to Vincent Price is rather, well, frightening...and isn't it funny how they never appeared together in public? Hmmmm...

Mr Dylan has always been a hero of sorts. But at $80.00 I'd rather buy a few (2) cases of beer. Don't get me wrong L/H., you are very fortunate to have him in your home town. I guess if he was going to preform in my spot of 1300 residing I would save my beer bottles and coke cans to go see him.

I wouldn't really consider him passed his prime, meaning I don't think 'ol Bobby can be writtien off as a "has been". In fact I think his last cd is one of the finest he has put out. His voice certainly suits him at his age.

But, with that all being said I'm afraid I wouldn't spend $80 buckaroos to see him perform. For that price I can buy a hand tooled leather guitar strap and one of his cd's at the used cd store. Anyway, I've seen him live way back in 1965.

**NO** one is worth that price just to say they saw him. As soon as they move the ticket prices up in that range, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I don't mind a famous artist making a better than average living, but if he's buying that expensive Scotch off the little guys tickets, he's drinking too much.

Yeah, Bill, but do you remember how much the Eagles charged for their "Farewell Tour" awhile back? It was way more than $80. Things are getting very expensive out there.

When I went to see Dylan the first time, in 1974, I paid $12...and I was shocked. It was by far the highest price I'd ever paid at that point in my life to see a musician. I was accustomed to paying $6 to $8 at most concerts.

The most I paid was for a Bruce Springsteen ticket about 10-15 years ago. $25.00 I think or around there. Got my money's worth though.
I guess it's like the price of gas. By fall a dollar a liter would look like a good deal.

I've never had trouble understanding what Bob was saying...but it helps if you actually know the words of the songs, of course...which I do. As for Barbra, she isn't saying anything that interests me, sorry to say, so it's a moot point, isn't it?

Look, if someone makes the decision to pay $350 for a concert ticket then they are pretty much emotionally obliged to enjoy it, aren't they? ;-) I think Barbra should ask $500 a ticket for her next show. Hell, how about $1,000 a ticket??? People would enjoy it even more. The sheer heady sense of exclusivity that comes with sitting in a $1,000 seat is a thrill that only a few people in this world will ever be entitled to.

They are longtime friends, Dylan and Lightfoot. Interestingly enough, they were there together at that Mariposa in Toronto, back around '71, when Dylan had to flee the Toronto Island site on a boat to get away from an incredible mob of people who were trying to get close to him.
