Bob Dylan


Editorial Review

A Bob Dylan show in 2009 is as much a living history lesson as a concert. So skip that trip to Williamsburg and see the single greatest artist of the 20th century. Dylan's decade-long comeback continues with this year's "Together Through Life," another gently rollicking trip down America's musical memory lane, with nods to the pre-rock-and-roll sounds of Chess and Sun Records. His voice may be more shot than Bonnie and Clyde's death car, but it's still hard not to get goose bumps during classics such as "Like a Rolling Stone" or "Blowin' in the Wind."
