This amazing rendition by Bob Dylan from 43 years ago was released today with a wonderful video on the Rolling Stone site. At the end of the month a 4cd set will come out from the late ’60s early ’70s ‘country’ session. If this is just a glimpse of what is to come, we’re in for a treat !
Merely an hour after she was found dead in her apartment, rumours were going around on Twitter. I’ve seen them before and figured it was another hoax, though some time after, the news was found on several somewhat more reputable sources.
Not that much of a surprise but still a shock once it actually happened. She actually was starting to get better as you can see by the recent pics at the Daily Mail.
She leaves us two wonderful albums. You can watch my favourite song below.
Unfortunately early this morning I heard about Gary Moore‘s very unexpected death. To be honest I haven’t followed him the past few years, but I had a friend in Highschool (this is the mid ’90s) who was a huge fan, and that’s how I got into his music as well. We saw him perform live quite a few times, and was always impressed by his excellent guitar play. Such a wonderful tone !
Late last thursday night the news came out, that MJ suffered a cardiac arrest and supposedly died. Not a real surprise, he didn’t exactly look healthy the past few years.
At the time I didn’t really care for his music, I listened to other stuff in the ’80s and ’90s, but looking back now, some songs, like Man in the mirror, Dirty Diana and the earlier Jackson 5 stuff are very well done. Regardless what I think, he was one of the biggest entertainers, the world has ever seen for almost 3 decades (not really counting the 2000era, let’s forget about those).
He was a stage persona, and wasn’t very happy off-stage, which lead to all sorts of antics. A kid trapped in a man’s body, very naive and not understanding the world around him very well. May he rest in peace !
Received this cd last week, and I like it a lot. It’s classic Willie but with a bit of a modern twist ;). The gravedigger Dave Matthews cover is on this one as well, which worth the price of the cd alone ! You don’t think I am funny anymore is another one of my favorites. The cd closes with Dylan’s You gotta serve somebody.
Make sure to check it out if you’re into 70+ year old singers ;).
