Not intending to start band rumours, but Duke posted this strange message on his facebook "For sale Bob Dylan CD and record collection for sale slightly used." What does that mean !?

He doesn't need them anymore, he plays with the man nightly?

Perhaps he bought a collection as reference material but when it became clear that the setlists would be more or less static he decided that he didn't need it anymore? :lol:

Nice pic of Duke and Lemmy on there!

Maybe the post is evidence that he's taking cryptic lessons from Bob, and wants to show off his crypticness.

Yeah, a member of Bob's band making a post on Facebook about selling all of his Dylan albums...that's...atypical, at best. And to describe them as "slightly" used? Yikes. I don't know what's going on there, but it doesn't look good.

I don't see that message on Duke's FB page now.

Musta been a joke.

Or maybe somebody hacked into his FB account.

Or maybe he's found a buyer for the CD's already.

Either he has stopped liking Bob's music altogether or he prefers jamming with Bob over listening to the CDs?

At Bob's show in Atlanta last night, Dylan got visibly upset 2 or 3 times when Duke came in at the wrong time - for instance, apparently inserting a guitar solo, or lick, right over Dylan's harmonica or the next verse of a song. Don't know if that's related to this...

This is what he said toward the end of the previous leg.

"Duke Robillard
den 26 april via mobil
Had a great night in Champaign Il tonight. So much fun! I seem to be adding a new style to my playing. I think my new boss songs are making me a better guitarist."

One of the interesting things about the last leg was how they played simultaneously without stepping on each other...apparently not as effortless as it sounded. Or...the leash is beginning to tighten.

I see it there now, with a bunch on comments. Duke has a big mouth and will dig his own grave.

You will find the post on this Facebook page of his: https://www.facebook.com/duke.robillard.1?fref=ts

Interesting statement to make....to say the least.

Dig his grave?

Maybe he has a decade's long music career of his own, and as nice as it is to play 1/2 full-ish stadiums with an elderly music legend he isn't going to take anyone's crap at this stage of the game.

If he didn't want to take anyone's crap he should have thought that through before signing on.

From what I understand they've known each other for years, at least tangentially, maybe he didn't realize how it would be. Or maybe the FB post actually nothing at all, was some kind of strange joke or drunken late night post - anyone else here guilty of that one??? I don't think we should discount that very real possibility. It took Charlie a few tours to be beaten into submission, and he didn't start out playing nearly as much as Duke on the spring tour - presumably Dylan was happy with things or they would have changed already.

The plot thickens, hmmm, well, Tony is a well-known card shark after all. Who could say what's happening?

duke snatched a guitar solo in simple twist of fate last night, bob stopped playin and turned around and just watched, he was kinda pissed.......

and in highwater bob just turned around and faced the drums for a while and did not seem happy, duke was steepin on the harmonica spots.

I think if Duke lost a little weight, grew his goatee out, lost the hat, and got a white suit with a lil black tie, he could make a fine living selling fried chicken....................

Whatever it is, Duke's obviously fueling the fire by posting about selling guitars but not answering the questions about what his first post meant. Unless Dylan hacked his account!!

Interesting that Stu is back on electric for some songs unlike the all acoustic all the time first leg.

Still don't see these updates. Maybe one has to be on FB to see 'em? Or maybe Bob keeps firing him & rehiring him every half hour or so.
