Bruuuuuuuce

So yes, it was incredible. I’ve been thinking a lot about something Bruce himself said when inducting Dylan into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Something about how Dylan freed your mind the way Elvis freed your body. Maybe he does, but I’m thinking Bruce almost frees the soul. The preacher-rap thing he does during “Mary’s Place” really didn’t feel out of place. This isn’t a rock and roll show. This is musical uplifting and affirmation. It’s three hours of great music, but it’s also three hours of hope, three hours of faith in the redemption of humankind, and three hours of bridging the chasm that exists between every person and every other person. It was also a hell of a lot of fun. I could say more, but why? If you haven’t seen him, see him. If you’ve seen him, see him again. And if you were there, feel blessed and share the word.

    Yes, but did he sing “I ain’t nothin’ but tired” repeatedly like Dylan did at Toad’s Place?

    Signs point to no. Actually, I believe he uses a teleprompter, not that he needs one for that one.
