Back in 'the day,' my friend Darin and I went to about a hundred Bob Dylan concerts together. Ok, maybe it was more like four, but during the years we were fellow Bobcats at Ohio University, we made it a point to see Bob every time he was in the general vicinity. These were the late 90s, when the likes of Matchbox 20 ruled the airways and I was vomiting at nearly every turn. Luckily, I had a trusty pal who could put up with my snobbery. Together we had the good fortune to see the single greatest concert of all time, when Bob visited Columbus, Ohio in 1997.
Eventually, Darin went his way and I went mine. While his fate was ever a mystery to me, rumors and twists abounded. Whispers spread that he was, among other things, a lonesome hobo, a renegade priest, a cat-loving diplomat. He even worked as a cook for a spell. Somewhere along the line Darin picked up a sidekick named Tweeter, although things didn't turn out so well for him. Or was it her? I can't remember.
Anyway, I'm happy to report that Darin has resurfaced, and he has an amazing webpage called The Wheel's Still in Spin. If you like music that doesn't suck, explore this site; tap Darin's expertise by clicking on the handy link. Good stuff is out there. Darin is kind enough to do the work for us, so check it out.
