DR talks about touring with Bob at approx 10:50. Before that he also talks about playing on Time Out Of Mind. He has a cool story of Bob's instructions for how he should play on Highlands (DR couldn't remember the name of the song though).

Great interview. Seems like a very nice, humble man who graced the NET with some top-shelf performances

Sorry, these clips are dull and interesting, not unlike some of his playing during the NET

Duke's alright.
Seems like an "old dog / new trick" scenario.

Yes, no bridges burned. I saw the Newark, Delaware show with Duke and enjoyed his playing.

Duke will be in the Boston region when Bob plays the Agganis.
Wonder if Duke will pop in to observe? He's got nuthin' else booked.
Might as well.

Personally, I don't see this happening. For starters, I don't think that Duke was at Dylan shows before he worked with him and really, if you left a company on - for all we know - really bad terms, would you turn up at the office in the future?

Would he really pay 90 bucks for that? Can't see Bob (or anyone, for that matter) firing someone mid tour and then putting them on the guestlist?

He might pop into the bar for a bitter before the show.

Fog: it was a "tongue-in-cheek" statement.
I'm guessing Duke has access to You Tube.

Well, all that made for interesting reading.
I'm only just catching up on all things NET after a 15 year lay off.
I noted a few people talking about Dylan's 3 note lead guitar breaks.
To my ears, the way he plays sounds very much akin to the way he
play's his harmonica. I think he hears the harmonica in his minds
eye when he plays any other instrument in a lead capacity.
He's been playing guitar longer than a lot of guitar players have been alive,
and i'm sure that if he wanted to, he could easily play a more conventional
style, but conventional isn't Dylan's style.
His guitar work on 'Good As I Been To You' & 'World Gone Wrong'
was distinctive and a joy to behold, and whilst he'll never be a
Rory Gallagher, or a G.E.Smith in terms of lead guitar, his playing,
(when he plays that is) is always interesting to me.
I've never heard any other guitarist enunciate lead notes the way
Dylan does. Neil Young showed how you can play few notes and
make a lead break sound great on his track 'Down By The River',
but that's for different reason's, like i mentioned, when i hear Dylan
playing it sounds more like a guitarists interpretation of a harmonica lead.
Just my opinion.
Regarding Duke, i've only heard him in the context of Dylan's live show,
but i'm sure he's an excellent player who unfortunately wasn't in-tune
with his employers expectations.

It sounds like they mutually determined it wasn't a fit.
Both are still worth seeing.

He'll probably be posting on his Facebook account right about that time about how Bob was so mean to him...
