Bob Dylan to appear on the TV show "Dharma and Greg", says Jenna Elfman (Dharma) on The Late Show With David Letterman. (reported by Ryan)
St. Paul Pioneer Press:
It's not every day that a guy gets to play with Bob Dylan, but that's exactly what happened to Minneapolis-based producer John "Strawberry" Fields last month. Fields was in Los Angeles the past month, doing some recording work, when his colleague T-Bone Burnett recruited him for the last-minute gig. Seems that Dylan accepted an offer to appear on the sitcom "Dharma and Greg" (!), the story line for which has would-be drummer Dharma trying out for a band. When she shows up for the audition, the band in question includes Dylan, Fields, Burnette and Joe Henry.

The Muddy Waters tribute took place in 1997, says John Pruski:
the muddy waters tribute show at the Kennedy Center here in DC WAS in about october 1997 (not 1998...). This surely is the same show referred to on y'all's page, as cast and host are same. But dylan and keith richards were not there, did not perform, and their part must solely be comments about muddy. They set us up on tables on stage to simulate a bar atmosphere and it was filmed by maryland public tv for broadcast in march 1998, but presuambly not shown yet.
the show was poorly organized, ran for about 4 hours, but performances were great and should make a great one hour show.
tell me if you want more info, fliers, newspaper clippings etc. The show was also reviewed about 9 months a go in either Blues Review or in Living Blues, can't remember which.
best, john pruski,
