Random Comments of the Day

I finally finished the book Another Side of Bob Dylan by Victor Maymudes.  Actually his son Jacob kept audio tape recordings that Victor made documenting his relationship with Dylan as his tour manager.  Every biography offers new facts. I found out that Dylan played chess.  The only significant revelation was that the 30th Anniversary Concert at Madison Square Garden was originally planned as a benefit but turned out to be a for profit event.  George Harrison was really annoyed when he found out.  This biography was unique since it was written by a Dylan insider rather than a journalist.

God really must have been a Yankee fan yesterday.  The original weather forecast was for rain all evening.  Everyone was afraid that Jeter's last game at Yankee Stadium would be rained out.  The rain ended in Queens in the early afternoon.  Who thought that DAvid Robertson would blow a save by allowing 3 runs in the top of the 9th setting up the stage for Jeter's walk off single.

It is a shame that reconnections are just too brief.  JB just recalled our singing of Mr. Bassman.  He followed up wit a photo of his four dogs.  I wish he would have told be briefly at least what has happened to him over the last 40 years.
