He can be way way lovely when he's in the right mood. He does appreciate having an audience, of this I'm 100% sure.

Thank you so much Bob for not thanking me that I'm there. Thank you so for being there. Thank you for all that you do.

There's a fine line between sincere adulation for the audience packed with total bullshit and total disregard. It would be nice if there was some form of acknowledgement (especially after a really well received show) or just a wave but I've learned to live without it. What would we all expect next - Bob to stand centre stage linking arms with the rest of the band - a group hug? No, I think he's fine doing what he does now!

I remember being at Hop Farm and being relieved that Bob just came on and played his music and hardly said a word, maybe just introduced the band because Ray Davies had done the complete opposite the set before and kind of had verbal diarrhoea. If your a kinks fan Im not knocking his performance just that after every song he seemed to remind us he was in the kinks and it was kind of annoying.

When Bob lines up at the final bow hes often gesturing or doing the odd nod of his head to say "thanks" even if there isnt a verbal acknowledgement.

I suppose he could say "heres another song off Triplicate, im not gonna apologise for recording what I want" or Im sorry I completely rearranged Tangled up in Blue but hey I recorded it 50 years ago, get over it", I think with some artists less is more.

Bob actually used to say thanks. I'm sure someone pointed that out already though.

Bob Dylan could have retired quite comfortably DECADES ago. It is the audience that needs to be thankful he is still touring. The band always takes a graceful bow at the end of each show - end of story.

I remember an interview to Leonard Cohen in which the journalist mentioned a quote from Dylan saying that he didn´t feel he owed his audience anything.
Cohen then went on to say he feels the exact opposite, that he´s very indebted to his fans. (And really, how the hell could they not be?)
This really shows in the live performances of each one of them.

These Leonard Cohen comparisons always make me chuckle...

Does it bother you that Bob Dylan never thanks his audience?

As long as He satisfies Me / I don't give a Shit about His Audience :!:

I figure I owe Him a Silent Thank You / He owes Me nothing more than the Art He is willing to share /

The Bootleggers will furnish the rest

A joke I hope. I saw Cohen once and fell asleep during the show. Was probably more the high test pot than Cohen, but it was a very sedate affair in general.

And in the first half of Bob's career, his performances were off the charts - he had no peer. If he is on cruise control now, he has earned the right to be that way.

Cohen was a folk singer anyway, so the comparison is ridiculous to begin with.

This made me laugh out loud so thanks for that, chromester!
That said, I don´t see what Cohen being (at least according to you) a folk singer, or Dylan´s glorious past has anything to do with being appreciative of once´s audience

I'm no Cohen expert, far from it, so what was he?

And....giving other worldly, historic, performances, "isn't" an appreciation of your audience???
I think you have it exactly backwards.

Well, he did start making folk music, but later his music took a turn and is always found in the pop/rock section of any music store.

So, if back in the day you delighted your crowd with a bunch of great concerts, that gives you the right to be an ungrateful bastard later on? I´m not saying Bob is one, mind you, just following your logic

One of the virtues of old age is that you don't give a fcuk what people think of you.

Bob is still great live. More importantly, he lost his voice singing for YOU, and you are here trashing him. Tis you, the unappreciative one.

And you're not really calling him an ungrateful bastard, just writing it here. Sure, got it.

Is there anything more sickening than an ungrateful Bob Dylan fan? He gave us more on his first two albums, 50 years ago, than you could give us in a hundred lifetimes.

But you've got a great whine! Want some cheese to go with it?

Phew, overreacting a bit, are we? Who´s trashing Bob? I merely put here a quote, his own words (at least according to some journalist), saying he doesn´t feel gratitude towards his audience.
The rest is you and me having a theoretical argument, not discussing Bob, at least from my side.

Easy does it

After the last show I saw, it bothers me that Bob Dylan doesn't pay his audience.

Thanks would not have been enough; I wanted money for wasting my time and the mental torture.
