Funny things cycles, i was weaned on a diet of Sinatra (and vegetable soup), not a day went by without Frank blaring out from my dad's cheap radiogram/record player.
I grew to love the songs, appreciate the exceptional delivery of them and the seeds of fascination for the names in brackets after the song titles was sewn.
20 odd years ago, i saw the guvnor tread these very boards with my old man, he was coming towards the end of his roller coaster career, he would have been around the same age
as Bob is now and despite the auto cue he now relied on , he still had it, still lived in the song, still meant every word, still had the voice.
So it is tonight,each time Dylan launches into one of his "Sinatra" songs, a shiver goes through me, a near lifetime flashes by, and yeah, Bob still has it too, in spades..
