Bob Dylan - I Was There

Hi Everyone,

I’m working on a new book called - Bob Dylan - I Was There - which will contain accounts of over 400 fans memories of seeing Dylan live in concert as well as people who worked with and met him during the 60’s.

If you would like to share your story for the book please post it here or contact me neil@thisdayinmusic.com

We need as much info as possible. It can be 100 words or 2,000!

Thanks for reading this.

Sandi - history

After Dylan had that accident, Hammond hired Bruce Murdoch; was going to bill him as Canada's Bob Dylan, but Murdoch wouldn't cooperate with that.

midsummer

The event is primarily a Celtic fire celebration, midsummer representing the center of summer, along with the shortening in the days on his or her gradual drive to winter season. Midsummer is traditionally celebrated upon either your 23rd or even 24th associated with June, even though longest day actually is catagorized on the Twenty first of June. The importance of the day to our forefathers can be tracked back multitudes of many years, and many rock… Continue

Profile Photo...

That profile photo I put up is me in 1970 playing a custom 12 string that I finished off for David Crosby.  The guitar has a Gibson Crest body, a Mario Martello solid Brazilian rosewood neck with an ebony 'board, and I made the welded bronze tailpiece, the stereo pickups, and installed red LEDs in the side of the fingerboard.  My then partner, Ron Wickersham, made the active electronics, and I mounted everything and finished it off.   David still plays that guitar, and after nearly 41 years,… Continue

Article from The Village Voice about Suze Rotolo's death

The Village lost a life-long partisan and a true voice last Friday, with the passing of Susan Rotolo after a long illness, at home in her Noho loft and the arms of her husband of 40 years, Enzo Bartoccioli.

Suze Rotolo was a talented artist (the maker of artist books and delicate book-like objects), as well as an illustrator, a sometime activist, an erstwhile East Village Other slum goddess, a devoted wife, a proud mother, a poet's muse, a good comrade, and late in her…

Rolling Thunder Revue, April 1976

In 1976 I was 17 years old. Two friends and I had read about Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue coming to Orlando, FL to the Orlando Sports Stadium. Orlando was a sleepy orange orchard back then. Disney had only arrived 4 years earlier in 1972. From what I understand the OSS was torn down years ago and a residential community sits on the site.

 

We were 3 kids from Savannah, GA and the thought of seeing Dylan live was a near impossibility to us.…

1967 Summer of Love

As a 19 year old I visited the USA in 1967. Saw Joan Baez at the Monterey Fairground, Cream at Fillmore West and the Bryds at the Whiskey-a go-go and Big Brother and The Holding Company at the Avalon in SF.

In New York at the Village Theatre I saw Vanilla Fudge, the Seeds and the Byrds (Eric Clapton was in the audience), then in Central Park (July 21st) I saw Judy Collins give a free concert at which she introduced a special guest - Leonard Cohen in one of his first ever appearances,…

Happy Traum at the Gerdes Folk City 50th Reunion 6/7/10 "Buckets Of Rain" and talks about Dylan

"BRING BACK THEM GOOD OLD DAYS!" ~ Comments from our members!

Lisi Tribble about Gerdes Folk City:
"Jay Byrd was the last hooter- Dustin Hoffman based his character "Hawk" in Ishtar on him. Enamel the Camel. The Roches. Rick Danko. David Massengill. George Gerdes. Eric Andersen. Mark Johnson. Gregory Fleeman. Jack Hardy. Robin Williamson. Tret Fure. Ferron. Sammy Walker. Lach. . .--Anderson,

Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."


"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
~Ida Langsam

"This website is gonna catch on fire. Great idea! When I get to something other than an iPhone I'll upload some pix and stuff. I'll be keeping tabs...I Think this kind of organized exposure for the artists willing to perform is Great. going to blossom"
~Bob Porco (grandson of Mike)

"Thanks so much for putting this whole thing together, and for inviting me to participate. I have such wonderful memories of the Bitter End and all the other coffee houses: Gerde's Folk City, The Gaslight Cafe... saw so many wonderful artists perform."
~Yvonne Fitzner
