One response to “Pod Dylan #168 – Restless Farewell

  1. Excellent episode, gents! Although I do listen to Pod Dylan, I never post any responses as I really have nothing to offer as my firsthand knowledge of Dylan is sparse beyond his generally known hits. Frank Sinatra, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. In my house growing up, only the Pope rivaled Sinatra in terms of celebrity and reverence. I’m only a few years older than Rob but I know almost nothing about the music of my own formative years. Rather, I was greatly influenced by my uncle who was a Sinatra and pre-rock era music fanatic. I lean more toward Doris Day than Green Day.

    While I don’t appreciate Dylan’s music as much as you guys, I do appreciate the impact he’s had on you and the wider mass culture. It was nice to see him on the 80th birthday tribute to Sinatra. I may still have the VHS tape that was sold around the time. I do recall that Bono wrote a song for the occasion: “One Shot of Happy, Two Shots of Sad” that I do enjoy. For my money, Frank Sinatra is the greatest all-around entertainer of the 20th century (despite not winning the Nobel Prize). If you’ve never seen the recent HBO documentary “Sinatra: All or Nothing at All” I highly recommend it.

    Of that encounter between Bob, Frank, & Bruce: Dylan remembered Sinatra giving him very high praise. “He was funny, we were standing out on his patio at night and he said to me, ‘You and me, pal, we got blue eyes, we’re from up there,’ and he pointed to the stars. ‘These other bums are from down here.’ I remember thinking that he might be right.”
