Fandemonium: 18+ Bob Dylan Fan Sites

Bob Dylan has had a unique and sometimes contentious relationship with his fans. As JBev notes in his review of the new Bootleg Series release, Tell Tale Signs, Dylan has been “loved, hated, electrified, wrecked, forgotten, deserted, misunderstood, saved, overrated, and restored.” Even Dylan himself has been quoted as saying, “What good are fans? You can’t eat applause for breakfast. You can’t sleep with it.” Well, no matter how much he might alienate or piss off his legions of followers (whether “going electric,” releasing a lousy Christian album a la Saved or playing mind-numbingly horrific live shows) Dylan will always have his fans, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health. In honor of these diehard Dylan disciples, JamsBio has rounded up 18 of the best Dylan destinations on the World Wide Web. Whether you’re a Dylan neophyte or a certified Dylanologist, there’s something out there for to enjoy. CLICK HERE to read more

STOCKHOLM 04.05.2002

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.
