Let me beat you to it -- yes, John Mellencamp was probably better than Bob Dylan at the Les Schwab Amphitheater on Friday night. Everyone has been saying this for the past few days (during which I've been battling a print deadline and ignoring my blogging duties) and I'll begrudgingly agree.
People say that Dylan didn't even sing...which is partially true. They said he didn't play many hits...that's not necessarily true. Sure, he doesn't sound that great behind the mic, but his band is still stellar and, most importantly, he allows you to say "I just saw Bob Dylan." Check that off the "things to do in my life" list.
(Side note: Check out this article about young people's reaction to Bob Dylan.)
But judge for yourself. Here's some cheap-seats video from the show.
