    How could I forget these! A kind guard let me get closer during Against the Wind and it was amazing. A favorite of mine as well.

    I guess the same way I forgot to mention Forever Young in my post, Soda. It was a touching tribute to those who have left us. I particularly loved that it ended with the last slide being a picture of Glenn Frey Drive. And, no offense, to Bob Dylan fans, but I've never been a fan of his voice. Even though he wrote some incredible songs, I almost always would rather hear them sung by someone else. Bob (Seger) refers to Bob (Dylan) as the Mt. Everest of songwriters and he (Seger) did a wonderful job with the song - very touching.

    How awesome! Bob is an original, and has stayed true to his roots. He defines rootsy raw rock and roll.

    My favorite songs are the rockers (shocker, I know!) like Rock N' Roll Never Forgets, Sunspot Baby, Katmandu, etc. However, one of my favorite guitar solos of all time is on Mainstreet.

    Dreamer, I agree with you about Dylan. He's a brilliant songwriter, but his voice is nails on a chalkboard to me. He sounds like he has the worst head cold imaginable when he sings, lol. I mean no harm to his fans.

    As far as Shakedown, I don't know specifics but I don't think he's played that live for quite awhile. In fact, I don't know if he played it that much live. Maybe back in the 80s. He quit playing Like A Rock years ago because he no longer had a guitarist who he felt could do Rick Vito's slide guitar solo justice. It wasn't until he got Rob McNelley a couple years ago that he started doing it again, much to the delight of his fans, at least the ones that aren't salty Ford fanatics LOL! Chevy > Ford. Sorry. The Ford fanatics usually go to the bathroom during that song. I saw it happen at the show I was at a couple years ago. It's hilarious!

    I agree with you both. Bob Dylan is an incredible song writer. However, his voice gets on my nerves. I always loved when Joan B. song some of his songs. She took them to another level.

    Austin, he played "Main Street" during the show as well and it was fantastic!

    Add me to the folks who like Dylan's songwriting better than his singing.

    Hands down one of the most soulful guitar solos IMO.
