Happy Birthday Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan put in a mighty fine performance of 'The Night We Called It a Day' on the penultimate David Letterman show last week, despite looking profoundly uncomfortable for every single second that he wasn't singing. When Bob's on the telly you never quite know what you're going to get. I wouldn't have him any other way.

Here are a couple of Bob's previous appearances on the box from a few years back, each of them a triumph. Many happy returns of the day Mr Dylan. See you in October.

Haven't seen either of these clips for a long time. The Japanese performance of 'Hard Rain' always astounds. Listening to his moving take of 'A Change Is Gonna Come', it's immediately apparent how much his voice has improved of late. Happy B'day, Mr. Bob - whatever you do is right by me ('cept 'Empire Burlesque' - arrrgghhh!)

Two fabulous performances chosen TS. To think Sam only wrote the song after been blown away by Blowin in the Wind I believe.

I think I prefer the version of Hard Rain you posted to his original. Just.
