Down The Highway

So, I'm a-walkin' down your highway
Just as far as my poor eyes can see.
Yes, I'm a-walkin' down your highway
Just as far as my eyes can see
From the Golden Gate Bridge
All the way to the Statue of Liberty

"Down The Highway" written by Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan kicked off his Spring 06 tour this weekend in Reno Nevada. The schedule features Bob Dylan and his Band also hooking up for several shows with Merle Haggard and The Strangers at various points of intersection down the highway in a repeat of last years successful co-billing of Dylan and The Hag.

Bob Dylan turns 65 on May 24th.

He's younger than that now.

Check in daily with Right Wing Bob and Expecting Rain for tour notes, relevant links and of course the always interesting nightly set lists.

On a completely unrelated note, I'm thinking of linking many post items today. Not to cut myself too much slack, but I've really been juggling a lot lately...well it's true...just look here for yourself. As I’m sure you can appreciate, the "B" side of The Beatles Abbey Road [or as it's better known...Paul McCartney's first solo album] is a very long and winding road and seeing as how I've had to carry that weight without many golden slumbers this week, I figure it won't be the end to simply mail one in here just for a change of pace.

Birthday blessings for Emmylou Harris this week includes a touching Powerline piece recalling her Gram Parsons tribute Prayer In Open D.

TALKING POINTS: Who is Keyser Soze? He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Soze. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick that the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

And poof. Just like that, he's gone.
