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
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
