You Gotta Serve Somebody
I like Bob Dylan. Sometimes, approximately 18% of the time, I actually understand what he is saying. In 1979, he said "You gotta serve somebody." He was right. The question is not whether we will serve. We all do, and we all will. The questions are 1) whom and/or what we will serve, and 2) whether we will serve as free people or as slaves. These are fundamental questions, and the Bible offers profound answers. CLICK HERE to read more

Just a few days after performing at the 2002 Grammy's, Bob Dylan recorded a new re-write of "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking" for "Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan" with longtime friend Mavis Staples. One month later he would kick off a new tour in Stockholm Sweden and perform Solid Rock (what many consider the theme song to his gospel era concerts) for the first time in 20 years. Dylan would continue to perform this rousing song as well as other gospel era songs at numerous concerts across Europe and beyond. The two-time Grammy nominated compilation would be released on Sony/Columbia one year later on April 1, 2003.
