Something else I should mention about my son is that he joined his school band last year when he started 6th grade. He began playing the trumpet, then piano, then french horn all within months. He had no interest in school prior to 6th grade & now he doesn't want to miss a day & his grades are fantastic. He said on the way home after the show he is going to really focus on learning to play the harmonica after hearing Bob play it live. He will not be playing the autographed one though! I believe that this experience will only strengthen his interest in music.

Check out this link of my son playing Tchaikovsky's 5th symphony 2nd
movement, on french horn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWXA_wrbKXc



I'm listening right now!!!! Great job. I used to play trumpet and piano. I never played french horn... is the fingering similar to trumpet? Glad he loves school now and is motivated. Sometimes that's all it takes....
You and I are the same age btw.

anyway, If a show is GA (and the Ryman wasn't so there was a possibility of seeing him enter), and the stage entrance is not blocked and people are standing there.... I wouldn't expect any artist to walk through it.

I met Willie Nelson AND Kris Kristofferson in that alley!

Very cool story, should be in the Second Edition Of "Encounters With Bob Dylan" (maybe your son would enjoy the "First" edition). I see I am not the only Dylan fan to name a son Dylan.

Milkcow and Johnanna, can we now start a debate on when Bob leaves a show? I think we have covered the entering part in detail. :lol:

I cannot believe no one else has pointed out that this terrific story and beautiful event all happened to a child named Dylan May. It could not have been more perfect. a serendipitous effort buttressed by cosmic alignment!

I took it exactly how you meant it, I was just amused by the dust up that followed. It's funny sometimes how little things can be taken wrong, I guess we all do it once in a while.

About the harmonica Dylan has.... it looked like a chromatic one, is it?

He certainly doesn't go out of his way to give people the chance to meet him. Yes, we know you did. I guess you only go to seated shows and have more time to wait around back doors. However, if the entrance to any venue is not away or railed off from the crowd lining up for GA, he won't go anywhere near there before people are inside.

Bill, great addition to your site!


never said he talked to anyone.... I just said he doesn't always go in right before he goes on stage.... and who is we? I don't think I've posted before that I saw him enter a venue, did I? or are you referring to me meeting him? I didn't mention that at all....



Don't be a tease Milkcow, tell your story, and if you need to start another thread, start another thread. Seriously, even if it is just a " He said Hi" story, I love meeting Bob storys of any type. Speaking of, has anyone ever done a thread on this topic?

yes, they have

oh, I really didn't want to discuss that here and I am not thrilled that it was mentioned in this thread. This thread is about a 12 year old boy that got his harmonica signed

Best story I've read in a long time. Loved that the whole night was your son getting blessings from all the musicians...seems to be they must have all sensed a 'brother' in music. Very cool...and Bob too, picked up on your son's vibe during the show and really blessed him at the end. 50 years from now, your son will still be talking about it and how it effected his music career...:-). And you will be telling the grandkids on cold winter nights, the story of the harmonica...:-).....

I have nothing original to say...just great story and I really enjoyed hearing
about it and envisioning it. I like romanticising things...so in my mind Bob
maybe saw himself in your son and knew how much it would mean to him to
get the autograph. There is some story...I either heard Bob tell it or read it
somewhere...about Bob being at a Buddy Holly concert when he was a teenager and
how much it meant to him that Buddy Holly just looked at him...great story. 8)

This is Dylan May speaking (not mom). :wink:

Just wanted to tell everyone out there in my words that I am amazed by what happened on Monday & I want it to be Monday again! I am starting school 7th grade tomorrow and I really can't wait to be in band class again see my friends and tell my friends about my summer. I think it is so cool that people are writing about me online. A Nashville radio station called our house tonight and I am going to do a radio interview before I go to school!

This was in his 1998 Grammy speech: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yGh3S4wMLY

Yes, the beautiful story of the little boy reminds me of this, too... who knows, how this will inspire your son, dogtear!

I think it is going to be more interesting if Milkcow and I collaborate on one book, just to keep it controversial. :lol:

@Dylan & Dylan's mom, that's great you'll be doing a radio interview! Maybe they will play one of your favorite Bob songs, too?

Hey Dylan,
I'm a teacher and I am so glad to hear that you are now loving school! I was in band too, but it was when I was in high school. I played trumpet and I read you do too. Good luck on your first day and I hope you love all your classes!
