Something Wonderful: Bob Dylan Turns 71 Today "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now."

Bob was 23 when he wrote that.

Twenty. Three.

Most excellent.

You rock, sir.

I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now...

What a line from a kid in his 20s. Can you imagine the resonance that will have when we're 80?

Let's be sure and talk it over.

Great song, indeed. Not a huge Dylan fan but you should check out his early '80's album, Infidels, especially the song Neighborhood Bully.

Hats off to Good Sir Robert.

That old man still has a few tunes in him yet. I shall carry the colors for him as long as I am able.

Do your commenters understand what you are trying to reveal ? When we were young; we thought we were wise. Now we realize ?

My God, Gerard....

Next year I will have been playing guitar for 50 years. It's been a helluva ride, ain't?

It's absolutely outstanding. I've had this saved three different times from three different sources,unfortunately the copyright nazis got to all three sites.Hopefully this site won't knuckle under to Orrin Hatch and his and his anti-music pals at the RIAA. Napster could have saved the music industry. But why wait for the golden egg when you can eat the goose.

Chills. Still.

And Bob's still touring, and playing, every night. You see, Bob was never about what the media said he was about, he was always a musician, and he was always about the music. Rock on, dude.

That video is from the 30th Aniversary Celebration Album which was recorded in 1993. Bob can do a 50th next year, and I am sure he will.

He was only 23? I was still celebrating being of legal drinking age when I was that age in the late 80s. What a burden it must have been for his generation. My spolied generation resorted to hugging trees, listening to Rusted Root and feigning outrage that women were ever banned from killing their unborn babies. Pathetic. I am FAR younger now.
