Dylan Performs
for Sold-Out Crowd

Harvard Crimson Contributing Writer

Shouts of “Make way! Moses is here!” filled a restless crowd as legendary musician Bob Dylan closed off his College tour last night jamming in front of a sold out audience of Harvard undergraduates and Cambridge residents….

“Each epoch has its singer.”
Jack London, Oakland, California, 1901

“Anything but the void. And so we keep hoping to luck into a winning combination, to tap into a subtle harmony, trying like lock pickers to negotiate a compromise with the ‘mystery tramp,’ as Bob Dylan put it….”

    the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to
    make a deal?”
— Bob Dylan, Like a Rolling Stone

From The New York Times today:

“It’s official, I guess. Forty years after he recorded it, Bob Dylan’s ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ was just named the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song of all time….”
