Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Captain Byrd's Eye - back off for a little perspective...seven posts in 24 hours might show you are obsessing. Your points are well taken.

If you know Dylan then you know the meaning of "The Changing of the Guard." It is his life story

After 16 years of performance this marked a profound change in his style with two female backups and a saxophone intermission. He had been divorced, converted to Christianity.

Trager"s book has Dylan saying that the meaning changes every time he plays it and the subject is a thousand years old. The Biblical reference are to himself as the good shepherd in a market place of of thieves and swindlers, and of course the watch tower and fires.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

I enjoy Zimmerman MUCH more than frosty little cat feet that creep in over night Windows.
