  1. Thanks. I have seen BD and BM in concert … Both had amazing room changing presence. You may enjoy BD posts on the immortal jukebox (BM, Toots posts to come) regards. Thom

    1. Greetings Thom,

      I have seen Dylan 5 times. Marley never came to the Great Falls Montana State Fair so I missed out on him back in the early 80s!

      Thanks for the headsup on Immortal Jukebox. Added it to my music favorites
