This Summer He’s 69

Bob Dylan is about to go on the road again and over the next six weeks he’s going to perform 25 shows in 36 days in 17 countries all over Europe. He begins this Saturday in Greece and finishes up in Limerick on the Fourth of July. I presume Bob is still in the States at the moment as today he celebrates his 69th birthday. The picture above shows a younger Bob with an equally younger Mick and Keith from the Stones. Below, Mick Jagger does his best Dylan impersonation as The Rolling Stones take on Like a Rolling Stone. The other songs are performed by two of the guests on the final episode of this season’s Later with Jools Holland and I’ll put up a post about that tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s Tom Jones taking on a song that appeared on Dylan’s Oh Mercy (1989) while Metric from Canada make the grade with their duet on Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright
