    Wow; you just never know what to expect from that guy. I really liked the band. Still one of the all-time greatest songs.

    Aside from the incredibly ignorant and racist comments in this thread Bob Dylan was married to Carolyn Dennis and they have a child together. I'll never get the jabs people throw around with regard to race, creed and sexual orientation on a board where RSOs like DocJeffery and Steven GC Coates are accepted.

    This is his daughter on the right.

    Stay classy TDPRI.

    I think Dylan's ex-wife is exactly who at least one deleted comment was referring to. I didn't detect anything "racist" about the comment I saw—I think you are being too sensitive and trigger happy in reporting people *if* that's what you did.

    That comment basically said something along the lines of, "Dylan knows that brown sugar tastes good." You do know what the song is about, right? I read that comment as a positive affirming one, not a racist, bigoted, or ignorant statement. Nothing disapproving or negative was said, at least not what I saw in this thread.

    BTW—I'm married to a woman who is brown as a berry, and darker than Carolyn Dennis. Just so you know...I'm in an interracial marriage. Please don't accuse me or anyone else here of "racism" unless you can back it up with evidence of racism.

    I heard that version awhile ago. The weird one is the Stones outtake version with Clapton playing leads:

    Speaking of deleted comments, where do they go? Do they just get removed from the thread altogether, or do they show up where the content says "DELETED" or something like that?

    Modded comments are completely removed. I'm guessing he reported the comment in question to a moderator, who deleted it. Sheesh. Some people on this board are so touchy.

    Again, nothing hateful was said, the person just quoted the lyrics to the song. Apparently quoting the lyrical content of the Stones' songs is enough to get a comment banned now.

    Interesting. I didn't notice a break in the numbering sequence of posts, so I guess that means that the subsequent post was re-numbered to take the place of the deleted comment, and the same is true for all that follow. It is as if the comment were never there. I realize this is beside the point you are making at the moment, which I actually agree with, but from the perspective of the history of information, I find it very troublesome that people on the Internet simply make things as if they never were. There are powerful and scary precedents for this kind of tact in world history, not least in the 20th century. And even if one agrees with the sentiment that X should be censored in some way, what happens when other things started getting censored in a similar manner?

    That was fun!

    Is the bass player the same guy that was on bass with GE Smith in the SNL band?

    Yes, that's right. It's down to good design. The better way to do it, and the way modern web software works, is that when a comment on social media is removed there will be a message along the lines of:

    This comment was removed by a moderator.

    That way, everyone knows there was a comment there originally, and if there are replies to the
    comment then it's obvious what happened to users who show up later. TDPRI uses older bulletin board-style software to run this forum that doesn't have that functionality.

    No, not the same bass player. It's easy to get them mixed up because they both wear a similar style hat and play a similar kind of bass. To add to the confusion, the G.E. Smith band did back Dylan on a few tours.

    The bass player in the G.E. Smith-era SNL band was Tom "T-Bone" Wolk.

    Bob Dylan's longtime bass player is Tony Garnier, who incidentally has been with him longer than any other sideman.

    Hard to figure why a guy with a multitude of great songs does covers like that. Especially when it's a bit like your average bar band style and nothing unique. But once Bob went electric he's been very hard to figure anyway!
    It's almost like he never got to do the bar cover thing like so many of us so went back to experience it!

    He did a cover of 'Learning to Fly' when Petty passed away. Did a pretty good version of it, too.



    He's been known to sneak a lot of covers into his shows. It's part of the fun of seeing him nowadays.

    Bob has earned the right to do a bit of karaoke in his set if he likes, I reckon.

    He did play with Tom in the Traveling Wilburys.....AND Learning to Fly sounds like a Wilburys' song.
