Bob Dylan With Jack White Video

I suppose you all know that Jack White sat in with Bob Dylan at some concerts in Nashville. But you may not have seen it, so I'll send you over to Stereogum for that pleasure. Here's what they have to say about it:
...a lot of you wrote us about Jack's recent sit-ins with Bob Dylan down in Nashville last week. Leonard hit us with the setlist from the 9/19 show, noting that Jack joined Bob for the first-ever concert performance of "Meet Me In The Morning," but the clip we excavated comes from the next night when, while still at the Ryman Auditorium, the two paired up on "One More Cup Of Coffee." Interesting to hear the contrast in the present state of their voices -- one gruff and worn, the other crackling, and wailing -- and as always with these live digicam clips, much less interesting to actually watch. But you should click play anyway.
How's that for the hard sell? Anyway, Jack White would love to be considered Advanced, and he might well be on his way. But just because an Advanced artist approves of you doesn't mean you are Advanced, too.

Sorry not about Bobby or Jack but have you seen Julien Temples 'Joe Strummer : The Future is Unwritten' its really advanced...Temple did a great job!

(sooz about deleted previous attempt at comment, very disrespectful spelling mistake inflicted on Mr.Dylan that I couldn't let stand)

i felt like "get behind me satan" was majorly overt. i haven't heard the latest album but as long as he's playing a guitar again...

Umm, did anyone hear about the "one-note" concert? Extremely overt in my opinion. In fact some blogger even attempts to bash Advanced Theory here: http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/blackplasticbag/?p=73

He really does not understand. Val Kilmer tries to put him in his place, but to no avail.

Here's something from a Dylan concertgoer's blog:

"...the coliseum went dark and an announcer came on, hailing “the king of rock and roll,” and then Dylan and his band appeared in matching suits and hats"

She goes on to say of her experience with being introduced to Dylan at this late stage:

"Firstly, what I’ve thought of him in general since I heard him for the first time: oh how he sucks. The second time, I didn’t vomit. The third time, I listened to the lyrics (nice). The fourth time, I went back to how I felt the first time. So it goes..."

And so it goes for someone trying to understand advancement...
