I don't think it's "sooo bad", Mandel is a fantastic musician, but as the switch from Freeman to Sexton has shown, Dylan has pretty strict ideas of how he wants his band to sound these days, so the choice of lead guitarist isn't as important as it was in the 90s.

Performing-wise Mandel would have been more like Freeman, so I for one am happy to see Sexton still in the band, who's - like it or not - performing and not just playing.

The "sooo bad" was in reply to Milkcow and BABF saying how they want to go to some of the Aussie shows, which I also want "sooo bad". Sorry if that wasn't clear. I added the Mandel link as an afterthought cos not everybody on here reads the front page.

I don't think Dylan would have hired the man if he couldn't commit long term (I.E., more than a year). He'll be there on April 17th.

This is the only thing that makes sense?

Is Allen still his middle name at all? The (fake?) ID shown on the Bootleg Series booklet just says Robert Dylan.

Is it the same ID that shows May 11, 1941 as the date of birth?

i'll give anyone 3/1 odds that charlie is still in the band. if he knew he was leaving at the end of the fall tour there would have been some implicit acknowledgment of it (i.e. fall '02). if it somehow happened post-tour, that implies that bob or charlie had some sort of change of heart. i just don't see it between those guys. bob's like his dad. charlie didn't come back to vanish mysteriously... that said, i hope he actually plays lead guitar going forward. he was a shell of himself last fall. i don't give a x how tasteful those rhythmic lead licks are, they pale in comparison to say, atlantic city '99 rolling stone...it's on charlie though. bob will subjugate him if he can...

I'm hoping Charlie's still in the band.

I'mk hoping Bob lets him play.

I'm hoping Bob retired the circus organ.

I'm hoping for the greatest NET tour EVER!!! 8)

I fear I've set myself up for some serious disappointment... :(

Let the speculations begin! At the Grammys, Harvey Mandel took his place. Some advertisements for the Taiwanese (I think) show still list Charlie among the band members.


Mandel is a wonderful player, hope he sticks around.

Mandel has touring commitments with Canned Heat until September, so it won't be happening before a potential fall tour if at all.

Not sure why those who can overlook Bob's voice can so fixate on Charlie's posture.


Couldn't agree more. I couldn't give a s#$t if Charlie stands on his head while playing. Been seeing Bob live since 91, and while other players have come and gone, Charlie has always been amazing when Bob let's him cut loose. He has fun and is animated on stage...so what? Enjoy the music.

It has been a bit of a mystery to me that he has someone as gifted and enthusiastic as Charlie and he keeps him on the short rope. I would like to see him cut loose.
