Happy Birthday this week to Bob Dylan, folk rock singer-songwriter whose career began in the early 1960s with songs that chronicled social issues like war and civil rights. He was born Robert Allen Zimmerman on May 24, 1941, in Duluth, Minnesota. Driven by the influences of early rock stars like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard, the young Dylan formed his own bands. While attending the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, he began performing folk and country songs at local cafés, taking the name "Bob Dylan," after the late Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. In 1960, Dylan dropped out of college and moved to New York where his idol, the legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie was hospitalized with a rare hereditary disease of the nervous system. Dylan visited with Guthrie regularly in his hospital room. He also became a regular in the Folk Clubs and coffeehouses of Greenwich Village.

Eric Von Schmidt: The Boston Globe Magazine, an insert in their huge Sunday Globe, had an article on Eric Von Schmidt. he seems quite the interesting guy. There was a doubly relevant portion which I have reproduced below as best I can. The article talks about how Eric and Bob met: The combination of musical experimentation and outlaw persona made Von Schmidt a role model for a new kid named Bob Dylan, who came to Cambridge on a visit from New York. The pair drove around town trading harmonica licks, then moved on to an afternoon of croquet. "Dylan playing croquet under the influence of half a bottle of red wine and some grass was really hilarious," Von Schmidt says. "He couldn't hit the ball with the mallet half the time, and the great thing about it was that he just kind of gloried in it. It was a wonderful meeting, and he ended up at my apartment, and I sang him a bunch of songs, and, with that spongelike mind of his, he remembered almost all of them when he got back to New York." A few months later, th ...

Have you seen "Inside Llewyn Davis" Yet? This man knew him well and says he wasn't nearly so miserable! Tom Paley New Deal String Band Saturday 8th February, Great Northern Railway Tavern £10 Tom Paley brings his New Deal String Band back to the Kalamazoo - and this, we promise you, IS the real deal. If anyone is worthy of "living legend" status it is this master of old-time fiddle, banjo and guitar. For more than five decades the New York-born singer has been an inspiration to students of 30's-style country and folk - as well as to some of the greatest names in the business. He was one of the New Lost City Ramblers who had a huge influence on the life of the young Bob Dylan. "I couldn't listen to them enough," recalls Dylan, who has often name-checked Paley on his albums. Later Tom was to give lessons in the blues to one Ry Cooder and banjo instruction the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia.

The day after the Super Bowl I find myself struggling with the following questions? (1) What does Kurt Russell have to do with the Super Bowl? I'm a fan and I get the Escape from New York thing but was that it? (2) Is Morpheus really selling Kias? Am I really in the Matrix? Would buying a Kia make that better or worse? (3) Bruce Willis is selling Hondas and he hugs you if you buy one?? (4) Bob Dylan is selling Chryslers?!?!? (5) The concept of a "Doberhuahua" now haunts my nightmares, I'm not even sure what they were trying to sell with that commercial, does anyone else know? (6) Playing ping-pong with a long-haired Arnold Schwarzenegger wearing a blue track suit while drinking Bud Light does not make me want to drink Bud Light, it makes me want to quit drinking, everything, including water, just in case. Maybe this is all conceptual art or something? I guess if they wanted me to remember their commericals, mission accomplished.

What we learned from the Super Bowl (Copied elsewhere, but I like it) 1. Joe Namath does not endorse PETA or Miracle Ear. 2. The Broncos defense was unable to responsibly handle the legalization of marijuana. 3. Countless critics can't keep Tim Tebow down. 4. Bruno Mars shows the world that good music and real talent still exist in American pop music. 5. The only thing that can improve Fox Network's lame broadcast is more Erin Andrews. 6. Football favor showed there were obviously more Christians playing for Seattle. 7. Bob Dylan may have single-handily revived the American auto industry. 8. New York black market vendors began selling knock off Nike Seattle Super Bowl Champs T-shirts at 10:32 left in the first quarter. 9. Denver's offensive line appeared to be blocking the Phantom of the Opera. 10. Seattle Seahawks are pretty darn good and deserve a championship.

Studs Terkel's 1965 interview with Son House will be aired tonight (Fri January 3, 2014) on Chicago radio station WFMT - here's the info posted on FB by WFMT's Andrew Patner: "This should be a must-hear program TONIGHT: Studs Terkel's 1965 hour with legendary Mississippi Delta Blues singer and guitarist Son House (1902-1988). His first active period, from 1927 to 1943, made Son House an influence in live performance and recordings on Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, and Bob Dylan. "Rediscovered" in retirement from music in Rochester, New York, in 1964 Son House became a staple on the coffee house and campus folk revival scene, adding Bonnie Raitt and others to the roll of his disciples, until retiring a second time, in Detroit, in 1974. 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. CST on 98.7WFMT Chicago and wfmt.com. Enjoy!"
One of the greatest rock and roll tours of all time began Jan 3, 1974—40 years ago today—in Chicago. It combined Bob Dylan, who had been absent from touring for more than seven years, with The Band—his friends and neighbors from Woodstock, New York. What happened inside that basement at Big Pink would now be unleashed on the world. I was at the concert on this tour Jan. 19, 1974 at the Sportatorium in Hollywood, Florida. By today’s standards, the “Sporto” was a terrible venue. It was a hangar-like building made of concrete with a steel roof. It seated 14,000 people and had no air conditioning. When it rained, the roof leaked on the performers and the audience. Robert Plant once said it was the only venue where he was rained out inside of a building. The sound was atrocious—like being inside of a large metal garbage can—which is essentially what it was. Billy Joel, after performing there, once called it “an acoustical nightmare.” But on the night Dylan and the Band played there, it didn ...
I first decided that I wanted to move to New York when I first fell in love with Bob Dylan.
My friend, Hugh McClellan, suggested a post about the folksinger Bob Gibson. Hugh lives in the Portland area. Hugh is a fantastic musician...Hugh also knows a good story..Bob Gibson...I hope I can get this one right.. Bob Gibson wrote the song Abilene, George Hamilton IV had a huge hit with this song in the early 60's...I discovered Bob several years later.. Bob was born in New York...Brooklyn. In the mid 1950's Bob met Pete Seeger. Pete is a folk music icon..Turn, Turn, Turn,and If I had a Hammer are two examples of songs Pete wrote.. Through Pete, Bob became consumed with Folk music. Bob became a full fledged traveling folksinger..He eventually found his way to Chicago and became a staple at the famous club Gate of Horn...this club was owned by Albert Grossman...the man who became Bob Dylan's manager...Albert also managed Peter, Paul and Mary..in fact, Peter, Paul and Mary was Albert Grossman's concept...Albert put together these three musicians...changed Noel Stookey's name to Paul and formed the most ...
David Kenneth Ritz "Dave" Van Ronk (June 30, 1936 – February 10, 2002) was an American folk singer, born in Brooklyn, New York, who settled in Greenwich Village, New York, and was eventually nicknamed the "Mayor of MacDougal Street". He was an important figure in the acoustic folk revival of the 1960s. His work ranged from old English ballads to blues, gospel, rock, New Orleans jazz, and swing. He was also known for performing instrumental ragtime guitar music, especially his transcription of St. Louis Tickle and Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag. Van Ronk was a widely admired avuncular figure in "the Village", presiding over the coffeehouse folk culture and acting as a friend to many up-and-coming artists by inspiring, assisting, and promoting them. Folk performers whom he befriended include Bob Dylan, Tom Paxton, Patrick Sky, Phil Ochs, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Guthrie Thomas, and Joni Mitchell. Van Ronk received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (AS ...

  Grammy Award-winning harmonica virtuoso Sugar Blue is not your typical bluesman...Born James Whiting - he was raised in Harlem, New York, where his mother was a singer and dancer at the fabled Apollo Theatre. He spent his childhood among the musicians and show people who knew his mother, including the great Billie Holiday, and decided that he wanted to be a performer.   Blue received his first harmonica from his aunt, and proceeded to hone his chops by wailing along with Bob Dylan and Stevie Wonder songs on the radio,   he was soon to be influenced by the jazz greats such as Dexter Gordon and Lester Young.Sugar Blue has used this background to his advantage, though, creating an ultra-modern blues style and sound that is instantly recognizable as his own.Blue began his career as a street musician and made his first recordings in 1975 with legendary blues figures Brownie McGhee and Roosevelt Sykes . The following year, he contributed to recordings by Victoria Spivey and Johnny Shines before pulling up ...
Bob Dylan's Fender Stratocaster sells for nearly $1m in New York
Dylan's guitar sells for $965k The electric guitar played by Bob Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival has been sold at auction in New York for a record $965,000 (£591,000). The Fender Stratocaster had been in the possession of a New Jersey family for 48 years after he left it on a plane. The pilot's daughter had it authenticated on a television programme on US broadcaster PBS. The festival in Newport, Rhode Island, is often cited as the performance where Dylan "went electric". Dylan's move "changed the structure of folk music", Newport Folk Festival founder George Wein, 88, told the Associated Press news agency. "The minute Dylan went electric, all these young people said, 'Bobby's going electric. We're going electric, too.'" But at the time, the three-song set drew boos from the crowd, who had come expecting Dylan's traditional acoustic folk performance. Dawn Peterson said on the PBS programme History Detectives that her father, the private plane's pilot, asked Dylan's management firm what to do with ...

He was born and raised in the Bronx by his parents who were Italian immigrants. He became interested in making guitars in his late teens. He visited junk shops, purchased beat up instruments and took them apart to learn their structure. He also visited legendary guitar maker, John D'Angelico in his New York City workshop asking questions and learning by watching the master craftsman at work. World War II would put a hold on Mancuso's interest in building guitars. While a sergeant in the Army he was stationed in India. After the war he was trained at Bulova as a watchmaker, gaining experience in precision work. Many years later he fou ...
In late August of 1964, The Beatles started their first official U.S. tour. The group began at Cow Palace in San Francisco and finished at the Paramount Theatre in New York. On August 28-29 The Beatles played at Forest Hills Stadium in New York and were befriended by Bob Dylan. The two parties were introduced by the writer Al Aronowitz at New York’s Delmonico Hotel.After a brief chat with The Beatles, Bob Dylan asked John, Paul, Ringo, George, and Brian Epstein if they wanted to smoke a joint. Epstein looked apprehensive and said that the band hadn’t tried marijuana for years. Dylan was immediately surprised because he had been under the impression that they smoked weed because of the song I Want to Hold Your Hand. He mistook the lyrics “I can’t hide” with “I get high.”The Beatles were never one to back down from a new experience and agreed. Lennon took the joint and passed it to Ringo whom he called his “royal taster.” Ringo smoked the entire thing, not knowing the tradition of sharing ...

Legendary New York City DJ Dave Herman arrested for arranging drunken tryst with 7-year-old in Virgin Islands by Scott Kaufman Dave Herman, the legendary New York morning radio host, was charged on Thursday with trying to lure a 7-year-old girl to the U.S. Virgin Islands for sex. He was arrested at the St. Croix airport, where he was expecting to meet the girl and her mother after their flight from New York and take them to his vacation home. The longtime host of “The Dave Herman Rock and Roll Morning Show” on WNEW-FM who had once interviewed John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and considered George Harrison a personal friend, is charged with having chatted online with a woman, “Kris,” he believed to be the mother of a 6-year-old named “Lexi.” “Kris” was actually a Homeland Security officer. “Age 6 is the perfect time to start her being loved that way,” he alleged told “Kris.” “I find girls that age incredibly sexy, soft, and their innocence is also a huge turn on for me. ...

Phil Spector: To Know Him Is To Love Him Greg Shaw, History of Rock, The, 1982 So much has been written about Phil Spector, yet he still remains an enigma. The most famous record producer in the history of popular music, he advanced the quality and sophistication of pop to new levels in the early Sixties, inspiring a whole generation of musicians, songwriters and recording engineers in both New York and Los Angeles. Not only was Spector a producer of genius, he also became one of the most dynamic of independent record company bosses, posing a genuine threat to the well-being of the major labels. His private life was more mysterious but equally exciting. Nobody, not even Bob Dylan at his zenith, had his kind of style. Flamboyant in the extreme, he sported ruffled shirts, brocade waistcoats, pointed shoes, shades, and hair so long it flipped up at the shoulder — all in 1962! Manically intense, he was a blur of frenzied motion from 1960, when he arrived in New York as a young studio apprentice, through to ...
I have always been surrounded by music all my life. In my happy times, sad times, I guess it is true "Music tames the wild beast" My son plays the guitar & piano and also composes songs. He does the things I can not do. My daughter is like me. She loves to do art and photography. Both attend the San Francisco Academy of Fine Art and seem to enjoy the classes. Very proud dad. I am a personal friend of Ramblin Jack Elliott, who was Bob Dylan's room mate in New York. Jack is one great musician and knows more artists than any other performer in the USA.

6/9 This day in music. 1964, During an evening session Bob Dylan recorded Mr. Tambourine Man at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City. This was the first session for the Another Side Of Bob Dylan, which saw Dylan recording fourteen original compositions that night. The Byrds later recorded a version of Mr. Tambourine Man that was released as their first single and reached No.1 on both the US & UK Chart. The Byrds' recording of the song was influential in initiating the musical subgenre of folk-rock, leading many contemporary bands to mimic its fusion of jangly guitars and intellectual lyrics in the wake of the single's success. 1964, 1967, Pink Floyd played two gigs in one day, the first at the College of Commerce in Hull, and then the UFO at The Blarney Club, Tottenham Court Road, London, England. 1972, Elvis Presley made entertainment history by performing 4 sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Elvis is unharmed. 1956: Elvis Presley appears on the last broadcast of Milton Berle's Texaco Star Theater, performing his brand-new song, "Hound Dog," and also "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You."

It's the birthday of Bob Dylan, born Robert Zimmerman in 1941. He was born in Duluth, Minnesota, and grew up in nearby Hibbing, just off the road that ran all the way up from New Orleans and lent its name to his sixth album, 1965's Highway 61 Revisited. He moved down to Minneapolis and studied art at the University of Minnesota, and though he'd started out his musical career with a rock 'n' roll band, he of Bob soon converted to folk, playing gigs at a coffeehouse, the 10 O'clock Scholar, in the Dinkytown neighborhood north of campus. Rock was catchy, but it wasn't deep enough to satisfy him, and he later said: "I knew that when I got into folk music, it was more of a serious type of thing. The songs are filled with more despair, more sadness, more triumph, more faith in the supernatural, much deeper feelings." He left Dinkytown for New York and became the darling of Greenwich Village's folk community. By the mid-1960s, he'd gone electric, forsaking folk and returning to his rock roots. It wasn't a popula ...
Spent most of the day walking the streets of Greenwich Village in New York. Pretty cool to walk the same streets that Bob Dylan did. Happy 72nd birthday to the poet laureate of rock.
Happy 72nd birthday Bob Dylan! I will be playing drums as part of an "all-star" band with New York-based vocalists Johanna Brooke Kodlick and Julie Corbalis, bassist Mark Crino (of Stanley Maxwell), harmonica player Chris DePino, guitarist Jeff Howard (founding member of McLovins), and guitarist Matt Splain (from Dirty Sanchez), performing Bob Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks" (as well as the "Led Zeppelin IV" album) in their entirety on Saturday, July 13:
Bob Dylan is 72 today. Dylan changed my life. This album (and one by Simon and Garfunkel) were so overplayed at the time and so shoved in my face (a teacher even brought a copy of this into school and forced the class to listen to it) that I ran screaming from sensitive singer-songwriters and much pop music in general. There was even a bullying quality to the ga-ga attitude too many 60's folks seemed to have for this ... um... music. "What's wrong with you man! You don't like DYLAN??!! What are you, some sort of insensitive jerk???" Seriously, I'd encounter exactly that. The simultaneous utter lack of respect for my tastes, my individuality, and my music, cinched my attitude about the 60's, hippies, yippies, counter-cultures, cultural revolutions, activists, protesters, and the like--a bunch of weak-willed, narrow-minded, whiny-arsed conformists. It took Eno, Bowie, and the Sex Pistols to re-engage any interest in "pop." New York's all right if you like saxophones. God bless you, Lee Ving. I got my bloody ...

DEDICATION: To Levon Helm Levon Helm And The Connection with Avantone… Mr. Levon Helm, one of our greatest musicians appeared out of New York from perhaps one of the most prolific American groups; THE BAND, a group that never compromised their style, their music, or their way of working throughout the decades. First, known as Bob Dylan's band and then branching out with such historic songs as "The Night They Drove Ole Dixie Down", "The Weigh", and of course, "Up On Cripple Creek" but that is only a small bit of their story, and Leon Helm, drummer & vocalist on many of their most famous tunes left this world as he first became known to this world... Singing and Playing those drums, and did he ever! This collection of Photos comes from an agreement between Levon and Avantone that I instigated with the help of his Producer/Engineer, Justin Guip and great friend,Ray Kennedy, Producer/Engineer. Levon, to the best of my knowledge, never endorsed any product in his life, except Avantone microphones and I remem ...
Abbey Road was almost empty. George had left earlier. He was taking the first flight to New York to see Bob Dylan up in Woodstock. He'd heard about some sort of motorcycle crash involving Dylan and was hoping he was dead, if not then the assignment was to finish him off. Dylan knew too much. That night in the Delmonica hotel three years ago had loosened the Beatles tongues and Dylan's mystical powers, hard chemicals and street smart ways infiltrated the impenetrable four headed monster. It would be the first and last time the Beatles would let their guard down. McCartney was fumbling around looking for a tea strainer when Lennon tapped his shoulder. 'Do you think our George will kill the Jew?', said Lennon cleaning his nose with the jack socket of a guitar lead. 'What Jew? Epstein or Zimmerman?', McCartney knew which Jew Lennon was suggesting but didn't want to get too excited in front of his nemesis. He also wanted to stay detached. 'Zimmerman, the Minnesota Jew not the *** Jew...the *** Jew' ...

New York is tackiness on the gravel of the meatpacking district, it's cool kidz on Bedford, it's yuppie parents in Prospect Park, it's characters out of Woody Allen's imagination in the Upper West Side, it's Dominicans in Washington Heights, it's Hasidic Jews in Borough Park, it's Asian groceries and Polish bars, it's Italians -- the real ones and the Jersey Shore ones -- it's movie stars, fashion stars, homeless, junkies, it's tourists, it's commuters, it's generations of New Yorkers. New York is neighborhood. It's having your deli, your coffee place, your laundromat and, if you're lucky, your late night eatery in one block. It's drinking coffee on your stoop. New York is museums, it's street art, it's music, it's theater. It's being constantly nostalgic about past decades. E.B. White said it best in his book Here is New York when he wrote, "In New York you feel the vibrations of great times."

Monday's Choice albums are Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde Neil Young - Harvest Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released in May 1966 on Columbia Records and produced by Bob Johnston. Recording sessions commenced in New York in October 1965, with numerous backing musicians, including members of Dylan's live backing band, The Hawks. They continued until January 1966, but yielded only one track that made it onto the final album—"One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)". At Johnston's suggestion, Dylan, accompanied by keyboard player Al Kooper and guitarist Robbie Robertson, moved to the CBS studios in Nashville, Tennessee. These sessions, augmented by some of Nashville's top session musicians, were more fruitful, and in February and March all the remaining songs for the album were recorded. The album completed the trilogy of rock albums that Dylan recorded in 1965 and 1966, commencing with Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited. Blond ...

Is Bob Dylan Hip-Hop's Godfather? Dylan's symbiotic relationship with hip-hop actually runs fairly deep. Hip-hop and Dylan were both gestated in New York, distrust the government, aren't fond of using their birth names, and have a pretty evocative way with words. And although Dylan recently told Street Newspaper that he doesn't really listen to rap all that much, he did admit, "I love rhyming for rhyming sake. I think that's an incredible art form.".. a look back at the many times their paths have crossed: 1965: Bob Dylan, "Subterranean Homesick Blues"
ON THIS DATE (13 YEARS AGO) December 10, 1999 – Rick Danko (b. December 29, 1942) (The Band, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, Danko/Fjeld/Andersen) died in his sleep at his home in Marbletown, New York, near Wood stock. Danko, The Band's bassist, also played accordion, violin, mandolin, guitar, fiddle; famous for co-founding The Band who originally started out as Bob Dylan's first all electric backing band, just known as the band, they kept that name. At 17, already a five-year music veteran, he booked himself as the opening act for Ronnie Hawkins, an American rockabilly singer whose group, The Hawks, were considered to be one of the best in Canada and by September 1960, he was Hawkins's bassist. A few years later Rick and some of the band went out on there own and ended up as The Band. He also enjoyed a busy solo career, he recorded demos and made a number of appearances on albums by other artists throughout the 1980s and 1990s,including a tour in 1989 with Levon Helm and Ga ...

Ken Regan, Iconic Rock & Roll Photographer, Dies of Cancer By Andy Greene | November 27, 6:15 PM ET Photographer Ken Regan, best known for his iconic images of Bob Dylan, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen and Jimi Hendrix, died of cancer on November 25th, Rolling Stone has confirmed. A spokesperson for his studio declined to give Regan's age, calling him "ageless." A native of the Bronx, New York, Regan logged countless hours on the road with rock stars, shooting the Beatles on their 1965 tour, Hendrix at the Fillmore East in 1968, Springsteen on the Amnesty International tour in 1988 and Neil Young at the Ryman Auditorium in 2005. He also photographed the Concert For Bangladesh in 1971, the Last Waltz in 1976 and Live Aid in 1985.

Totally felt this way about this song too! ***In related news, Frank Turner recently gave an interview to The AV Club where he talked about his hatred for John Lennon of The Beatles' solo song, "Imagine." He explained: It's always grated on me as a song for a whole host of reasons: the production, the lyrics, the sappiness, its popularity, the knowledge that Lennon was so much better than this one song, and yet it's the one most people know. [...] Compared to, say Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'," or indeed anything by Crass or The Clash or Propagandhi, it's so utterly vacuous. It's a Hallmark card set to music. There's a pretty high dose of hypocrisy in here as well. For a man who had a dedicated, refrigerated room in his New York penthouse apartment for storing his fur-coat collection to sing "Imagine no possessions" takes a fair amount of chutzpah. I mean, I have no problem with the man collecting fur coats. Whatever floats your boat. But there's a certain strain of material disdain that can ...
"Less than five years ago, Bob Dylan was scuffling in New York - sleeping in friends' apartments on the Lower East Side and getting very occasional singing work at Gerde's Folk City, an unprepossessing bar for citybillies in the Village.

Beatle Bob's Top Rock & Roll TV's Historic Moments: The Enemy's on The Beverly Hillbillies CBS hit a ratings gusher with this rustic sitcom and The Beverly Hillbillies frequently topped the Nielsens during its nine-season run (1962-1971). It also spun off another long-running backwoods sit-com Petticoat Junction (which, in turn, spun off Green Acres), but a 1993 feature film based on the original series was a disaster. The Enemy's story of The Enemy's begins in Buffalo, New York in the mid-1960s, when vocalist Cory Wells joined a band called The Vibratos after leaving the U.S. Air Force. With the encouragement of the group’s manager, Wells headed to Los Angeles along with Vibratos guitar player Mike Lustan and drummer Dave Treiger. The trio recruited bass player Cal Titus and renamed themselves Cory Wells & The Enemy's. The music scene that The Enemy's entered into in Los Angeles in 1965/66 was thriving, with up-and-coming bands like The Byrds, The Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Love (band),The Rising ...
. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Band was a roots rock group that originally consisted of Rick Danko (bass guitar, double bass, fiddle, trombone, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, mandolin, guitar, vocals), Garth Hudson (keyboard instruments, saxophones, trumpet), Richard Manuel (piano, drums, baritone saxophone, vocals) and Robbie Robertson (guitar, vocals). The members of the Band first came together as they joined rockabilly singer Ronnie Hawkins's backing group, The Hawks, one by one between 1958 and 1963. In 1964, they separated from Hawkins, after which they toured and released a few singles as Levon and the Hawks and the Canadian Squires. The next year, Bob Dylan hired them for his U.S. tour in 1965 and world tour in 1966. Following the 1966 tour, the group moved with Dylan to Saugerties, New York, where they made the informal 1967 recordings that became The Basement Tapes, which forged the basis for their 1968 debut album Music from Big Pink. Because they were always "the band" to various fro ...

So one night back in 2006 I saw one of the most incredible perfomances of improvised music I have ever seen. I want to say that it was sometimes in July, and it was one of those sweltering New York nights. I brought a very old and good friend with me to watch Brian Blade, Jon Cowherd, and John Pattituci play music by artists as varied as Wayne Shorter and Bob Dylan. It was magical, and though the music is not defined by the space in which it is performed, it is no less a tragedy that my far and away favorite space to watch music in is closing. The Jazz Gallery needs a new home. Whether you are an artists, patron, casual listener, or have had just one recording touch your soul, the Jazz Community needs to come together to help find a brick and moartar space for the Jazz Gallery to thrive.

“BOB DYLAN’S PALS AND ME” by Robert Leaman Sanders So, my friend says: “Robert, I’ll show you some cool moves on guitar. Only a rare few in the whole world know ‘em. I got Bobby to teach me. I told Bob, hey, look, I gave you my bedroom to live in. The least you could do is show me some moves. Bob caved in and gave me guitar lessons.” That’s what my friend, Peter, told me back in New York. Well, dear reader, I picked my friend Peter’s brain. I mastered those very same cool sounding variations of guitar chords he got from Dylan and I went out and started singing and playing my own original songs way back when. I played what I call The Greenwich Village Circuit - The Gaslight Lounge, Kettle-of-Fish, Paul Colby’s Bitter End, Gurdie’s Folk City, the whole bit. But, this reminiscence is not really about me. It is more about how I crossed paths with the incomparable Bob Dylan even if only a trifle. One night. when my band and I had just finished playing a set at a private party ...
"I'd come from a long ways off and had started a long ways down. But now destiny was about to manifest itself. I felt like it was looking right at me and nobody else." So writes Bob Dylan in Chronicles: Volume One, his remarkable book exploring critical junctures in his life and career. Through Dylan's eyes and open mind, we see Greenwich Village, circa 1961, when he first arrives in Manhattan. Dylan's New York is a magical city of possibilities -- smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough. With the book's side trips to New Orleans, Woodstock, Minnesota and points west, Chronicles: Volume One is an intimate and intensely personal recollection of extraordinary times.
It is Brother's Day, Tiara Day, Escargot Day, and Eritrea National Day. The birthdays include Priscilla Presley, Queen Victoria, and Bob Dylan. In 1883 the Brooklyn Bridge is opened in New York after 14 years of construction.

Before I even mention me, I should tell you some other facts: 1. At nineteen, Bob Dylan was a seasoned performer in Greenwich Village, New York. 2. Salvador Dalí had already produced several outstanding artworks of paint and rebellion by the time he was nineteen. 3. Joan of Arc was the most wanted woman in the world at nineteen, having created a revolution. Then there’s Carla Ribeiro, also nineteen… No real career. No respect in the community. Nothing.”

Jim Marshall was an iconic photographer, often of rock stars. Marshall was the only photographer allowed backstage at The Beatles last concert, and chief photographer at Woodstock. He was the photographer of Jimi Hendrix setting his guitar on fire at the Monterey Pop Festival and Johnny Cash at San Quentin. After starting as a professional photographer in 1959, Marshall was given unparalleled access to rock’s biggest artists, including the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, the Who, Miles Davis and Ray Charles. He was the only photographer granted backstage access for the Beatles’ final full concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park in 1966 and he also shot the Rolling Stones on their historic 1972 tour. He was known for his forceful personality that became something of a celebrity of its own. He lived in California, but died in New York on a trip in which he was scheduled to speak in SoHo. Career Highlights Jim Marshall launched his professional photography career in 1960. And though he’s justly famous ...
