B and I had a blast last night at the Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Bob Dylan concert. We got poured on (well, B did but not me because I didn't care about being in front of the stage so I hid under-cover when the t-storm rolled through). But anyway, once the rain cleared I joined B and sang along to some of Mellencamp's classics. Can you believe that he played "Hurts So Good" for us -- it was the first time he had played it in at least 5 years!! Very cool.
What was not cool was Bob Dylan. I've heard all the jokes before about how he's incomprehensible, but this was faaar worse than what I anticipated. He was literally just grunting out syllables. I told B he sounded like a muppet... Animal to be exact. His music was so mundane and his lyrics (which is what made him famous) were lost to his tuneless grunts. Kinda sad, really.
Good thing we actually went to see Mellencamp! We were not disappointed.
