I have no idea who the old cat was, but if Dylan supposedly come out of there with a new look at the world, it was in his own mind. I have followed him since day one and have seen him over thirty times, and, Dylans show with the Dead at the oakland coliseum (outdoor) on a cool, almost cold night, stunk. It was the worst concert he ever gave that I remember. I had seen a couple others he gave that weren't very good also, but most of the ones I have seen, including his first time out here, in San Jose, the year he first came out playing Electric, and The Last Waltz, The Bands last performance together, were more than good. I can't see how anyone can point to the Dylan and the Dead album and say it was good. It may of been better than the Concert, but that aint saying much. Just being honest. -ron-

I only saw Dylan once. It was the late sixties. Totally stoned out, sitting on the wings of the stage at Long Beach City College or somewhere around there. I was almost behind him, stage right. He was framed in the spotlight. It was all acoustic so that should nail it for where and when. I was transformed. Maybe it was the drugs ... I don't know.

I did collect this quote of his some time ago, somewhere:

"I stopped trying to figure everything out a long time ago."

Sorry I couldn't help ya.
