Letterman, Dave (Jeffrey J. Doris):
Dave walked up to Bob where he sat and apologized about the interuption. When they were back in the Sullivan theater, Paul mentioned "Dylan" a couple times, explaining his absence. This reminded me of something I read in the Biograph liner notes. I think Bob has a quote therein in which he mentions Letterman. I don't remember what it was about. (John Scullin):
When they return to the theater Paul explains pleadingly, "Dylan was there! Dylan was there!"
Good enough reason to be anywhere.... :)
Dylan refers to Letterman in long winded liner notes to Every Grain of Sand: about 1/2 way into it

"...You got to be somewhat superstitious to survive. People like to talk about the new image of America but to me it's still the old one--Marlon Brando, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, it's not computers, cocaine and David Letterman, we gotta get off that--Hedy Lamarr, Dorothy Dandridge, that's my idea of America..."
But I suspect Bob is a closet Dave fan, even if he doesn't watch five days a week...
Visualize Bob watching Dave, turn off the TV in disgust, grab his guitar and head for the porch (on a warm summer night)...

Bob has appeared on Dave in '84 and also for Dave's 10th anniversary show (sang Like a Rolling Stone)
any other appearences?

Bob continues..."To the aspiring songwriter and singer I say disregard all the current stuff, forget it, you're better off, read John Keats, Melville, listen to Robert Johnson and Woody Guthrie. ..."

The wise man speaks.
Turn off you're computer and grab Billy Budd, sailor, and keep that TV off too.
