  1. Best wishes for a wonderful birthday, Jimmy! I hope that today is the beginning of another great year for you. It was a pleasant surprise to meet you again this past year. You still possess a singular enchantment that always came completely naturally to you. Thank you for being so charming, gracious, and considerate. Jimmy, you will always have my best wishes and my prayers.
  2. Belated birthday wishes, John Paul! I hope you had a beautiful day. It was a pleasure and an honor to meet you again, last year. You have always been so genial and gracious. All the best to you, MSG, a fan forever
  3. It looks like Jimmy is wearing the same scarf in both photos.
  4. I don't think it's Tommy in the limo with Jimmy. Here's another photo of the man:
  5. You're right - I remember the mention of Brian's album now...and Jimmy mentioned it, I think, on one of his OTD posts. I love the album too.
  6. Thanks so much for writing this out, PlanetPage. I really appreciate it and I will save this wonderful story along with the photos. I like how Jimmy mentions Eric Clapton's "magnificent mastery of the blues guitar." John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers with Eric Clapton is a fantastic album - I've been listening to it for at least half my life and it's still one of my favorites.
  7. I used to think that Jimmy's first trip to Morocco was in 1975 and that Burroughs convinced him to go during the interview/conversation in Burroughs's downtown loft, when he told Jimmy about Jajouka music. But then, in a more recent interview, Robert said he took Jimmy with him to Morocco in 1972 and showed him the Atlas Mountains...perhaps he meant 1975?
  8. Back to where I left off and what a momentous OTD. PlanetPage and Aen, thank you for archiving so many of Jimmy's OTDs - without you, I would have missed all this. This particular entry about Jimmy's trip to Morocco is fantastic as my husband and I made our first and best trip to Morocco not long after Jimmy and Robert visited. We were there in that moment when it still held its 60's and 70's vibe, in those last hours when hitchking was safe and the country was still populated by interesting artists and characters, and a few decades before the Djemaa and Essouraira began to heave with tourists
  9. I love this photo and I love the way that he seems to be glowing with pride at the photographer, his daughter Scarlet. It's always a treat when Jimmy mentions his family.
  10. I am so curious about what Jimmy had to say about their performance as I love this band so much. I can't read the fine print....does he talk about his experience there and what he thought of the band? Did Clapton play with them that night? Thanks.
  11. What a heartbreakingly beautiful tribute to John. Thank you for archiving all of these, aen. I've missed so many of them and have much to catch up on but I'm glad I found this one, it is so very special.
  12. Jimmy looks lovely here - he seems relaxed and at ease.
  13. Happy Birthday, dear John. We all love you and miss you - and we will never forget you. Thank you for everything, for all of it. God Bless you and your family. Love you always and forever, MSG and the "true blue girls."
  14. I think this is a well-deserved honor for the kid who left the Iron Range, influenced many through his poetic lyrics, and became an American treasure. From everything I've read and heard about the man, Bob Dylan loves this country and its people in the way that Woody Guthrie loved it. I've spent many years in impoverished countries where freedom of speech (including protest songs) is not a right and not protected and, even in those places, we encountered people who could recite many of Dylan's lyrics verbatim.

  16. Thank you, Magic! Jimmy looks lovely...so much grace and class, he is royalty himself. Haha!
  17. Thanks for the interviews. I think Tavis and Charlie are excellent and I look forward to almost all of their interviews. I'm not familiar with Gayle King but I wasn't impressed with what I saw of her segment of the interview. I still consider Gregg to be an incredibly important musician and I would have personally granted him more respect (or empathy). Anjin-san, I read that book a long time ago too and I remember thinking it was excellent even though Gregg (and maybe Dickey too?) declined to be interviewed for it. I'm curious about Gregg's book and will probably read it - he may
  18. Happy Birthday Bob. "May you always know the truth. And see the lights surrounding you."
  19. DavidZoso, thank you for all of the beautiful photos and for the setlist (and for identifying which song was played during each shot). The Kashmir photo is especially nice - beautifully clear. I never attended a 1977 concert so it's strange for me to see Jimmy standing at the footlights of the stage, playing No Quarter, with a cigarette burning in his mouth.
  20. That's similar to how it was with me too: I wasn't all that taken with ARS at first but a friend (who was more more adept than I at identifying good musicians and bands) persuaded me to check them out. I think there have many more this year than in the past (it seems there is at least one a week, sometimes more). I usually don't notice such things but this year seems to have been exceptionally bad for the music world. I hesitated about posting about Chris Ethridge's passing here. My friends and I had followed Chris's career from the Burritos through his session work (he played with
  21. I loved that one. Marley Purt Drive was also one of my favorites.
