Dylan - at Doubleday field in Cooperstown a few years ago
It was awful. Placed was packed - but many left halfway through. I stayed for entire event b/c I'm a Dylan diehard no matter what. My wife and daughter left to go to local bar for drinks. At the end- I kind of wished I had left with them.
With that being said two years later I saw him in NYC and it was great.
Guess everyone can be lousy some nights.
Sounds like the time I saw him. He was touring minor league ball parks with Willie Nelson. Willie was awesome, sang every popular song, interacted with the audience. It was a joy to see - actually brought tears to my eyes, seeing this American Icon.
Then came Dylan - all electric amped to the max, totally incoherent vocals and not a single song recognizable. I left early. I still am a huge fan, but man was that disappointing.
That's why I didn't see The Who last year when I was in Vegas. After the fiasco in the Super Bowl half time a few years back, I didn't want taint my love for Pete and Roger by witnessing it in person.
