Flashback: George Harrison Pays Tribute to Bob Dylan
The 1992 performance was one of Harrison's final times onstage
By Andy Greene October 9, 2012 4:25 PM
In the early 1990s, George Harrison seemed like he was gearing up for a return to the spotlight. His 1987 LP Cloud Nine was a huge surprise hit, and his subsequent work with the Traveling Wilburys pushed the shy Beatle even further into the public eye. The obvious next step was a tour, but Harrison's disastrous 1974 tour was still a fresh memory, and he seemed to have no interest. But in May of 1990, Harrison joined Eric Clapton onstage in Los Angeles for a couple of Cream songs, and the next year the longtime friends announced a joint tour of Japan.
Twelve concerts were staged across Japan in December of 1991, and it seemed like the jumping off point for a long comeback tour. Sadly, that wasn't the case. It wasn't a repeat of his 1974 debacle, but Harrison just didn't feel any desire to stay on the road. He proved he could still deliver, and nothing beyond that seemed necessary. He did agree to a single show at the Royal Albert Hall in April of 1992 to raise money for the Natural Law Party, but it was an isolated event.
The last time American audiences got a decent glimpse of Harrison was in October of 1992 at Bob Dylan's 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration at Madison Square Garden. He came out near the end to perform "Absolutely Sweet Marie" and "If Not for You," and then he joined the ensemble for "My Back Pages" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door." He did perform two months later during the finale of a Jeff Porcaro tribute show in Los Angeles, but if you blinked, you would have missed him. He merely played some guitar during the finale of "With a Little Help From My Friends."
Over the final decade of Harrison's life, he was rarely seen in public. He did play an impromptu rendition of "All Things Must Pass" alongside Ravi Shankar on VH1 in 1997, and the following year he was coaxed into performing "Your True Love" at the memorial service for Carl Perkins. But the last time he played a real set in front of a paying audience was the Bob Dylan tribute show at Madison Square Garden. Coincidentally, that was the last place John Lennon ever performed as well.

Dylan's back pages - Dylan surprises Etta James and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, July, 1986
On July 8 and 9, 1986, Bob Dylan, while on his "True Confessions" tour with Tom Petty, the Heartbreakers, and the Queens Of Rhythm, played his first two shows ever at the brand new Great Woods amphitheatre in Mansfield, Massachusetts, which was later called the Tweeter Center before being renamed again as the Comcast Center. The venue opened the previous month, and the first "rock" act was Julian Lennon. It was one of the first outdoor sheds. Dylan was so impressed with the venue that he added a third gig of the 22nd. That date is not listed on the official tour t-shirt.
In the early hours of the 10th, Bob Dylan joined Etta James and Shuggie Otis on stage at the Providence Marriott Hotel. You can almost hear Dylan smile as he kept repeating the same suggestive verse of "I'm A King Bee" (The one about "making honey"). Here's the information, courtesy of Olof:
Marriott Hotel, Providence, Rhode Island 10 July 1986 1. You Win Again (Hank Williams) 2. I'm A King Bee (James Moore) 3. Let The Good Times Roll (Leonard Lee) 4. Earth Angel (Dootsie Williams/Curtis Williams) 5. Goodnight, Sweetheart, Goodnight (James “Pookie” Hudson) Bob Dylan (guitar), Etta James (shared vocal), Shuggie Otis (guitar), Jack McDuff (organ), Richard Reid (bass), Paul Humphrey (drums). 1-4 Bob Dylan (solo vocal)
I caught the Great Woods concert on the 9th. My next "True Confessions" show was on July 11th, at the Hartford Civic Center. I had only owned a car in Massachusetts for about two years when I got tickets for this show, and didn't quite realize how far it was from Boston. Not that it mattered. I bought four floor seats, but through some misunderstanding, the set up was changed so that two of my friends sat in the row behind us.
This show sticks out in my mind as one of my all-time favorites for one specific reason - the encore. Dylan seemed to be in a mischievous mood all evening. Possibly parodying Bruce Springsteen, who toured the globe in1984-5 promoting Born In The U.S.A., he announced early in the show, "All right, thank you. I wanna say hello to all those people up here on the right." When he returned for the encore, he pointed to the same section of the crowd, saying, "All right now, one more time we wanna say hello to those people right up here". He never acknowledged the rest of the arena.
Dylan was also dripping with sarcasm during his solo acoustic set, when he said, "OK, all right. I'm not, I'm not playing 'Mr. Tambourine Man', no. Sooo sorry." The show was pretty similar to Mansfield, with Dylan substituting "Emotionally Yours" for "I'll Remember You". Nothing too earth-shattering. The main set ended the same predictable way - "Like A Rolling Stone", the lights went down, Dylan and the Heartbreakers sat on stage in the darkness, smoking cigarettes. Then it was time for the real last song of the set, "In The Garden".
After a short break, Dylan and the Heartbreakers returned for an encore, performing "Blowin' In The Wind". Then he did something unexpected. Instead of the expected oldie, "Shake A Hand", Dylan started singing and playing "Lay, Lady, Lay". It was the only time he played it the entire tour.
This would seem to also include rehearsals.
There was visible tension on stage. Heartbreaker guitarist Mike Campbell leaned forward, watching Dylan, who was looking straght ahead. Campbell was trying to follow the unusual chord sequence, and held the neck of his guitar up so that Petty and the other members of the band could play along. While the band were up to the challenge, the Queens Of Rhythm - Carolyn Dennis, Queen Esther Marrow, Madelyn Quebec, and Louise Bethune - were obviously stressed. They looked worried, clasping their hands, their eyes darting around, looking for some divine inspiration. They decided to sing "Oooh . . Oooh", which was just as well, since Dylan changed the lyrics as he went along.
After the wonderfully shambolic, and humorous, performance, Dylan playfully shoved Petty, as if this was some sort of high school prank. Then Dylan said, "All right now. I don't usually do that song but I did it tonight for a special request. Can't remember who it's for! "
The show ended on a more normal note, with "Knockin' On Heaven's Door". Then it was a long trip back to Massachusetts.

Где-то я припоминю, Том или кто-то из его группы упоминал, что от Дилана часто такие сюрпризы были. И для Тома этот тур был хорошей школой с точки зрения того, чтобы почувсвовать себя в шкуре тех, кто подыгрывает солисту.
Скопировать фотографию, а поверх неё поработать кистями, чтобы было похоже на ручную работу - для художника занятие не самое сложное и ставить свою подпись под этим делом на её месте всё же постеснялся бы. Но плюс ей за инициативу, а минус за то, что взяла стандартные снимки: всё же могла бы поискать малоизвестные ракурсы. Ну а так молодец.

THE TRAVELING PILBURYS
The Andicaps were the first band of Jeff Lynne in the early 60's. Jake Commander and John Kerton are 2 former members of this Brummie band. They formed The Traveling Pilburys in 2008. Jake Commander left the band in late 2008. He was also the live engineer on the "Out Of The Blue" tour as well as backing vocalist on ELO's world tours and on Jeff Lynne's solo album "Armchair Theatre".
The Traveling Pilbury's are a five piece band based in Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. Formed out of a bunch of ex professional musicians from the 60's, who got together for a bit of fun in 2008.
It started as a jam session, when one time Andicaps guitarist/vocalist Jake Commander returned from his adopted home in New Hampshire, USA and wanted to get together and play live music with some of his old band mates. Not a de facto tribute band, as the name might suggest, but with Jake and John Kerton's connection with Jeff Lynne, the Cross-Atlantic trip Jake had made back home and the fact that we are all a little more 'Pilbury dough' than we were in the 60's, the name Traveling Pilbury's just seemed to fit!
Founder members included John Kerton, who joined The Andicaps as front man and lead vocalist in 1964, alongside Jeff Lynne on guitar, later of course of The Idle Race, The Move and ELO. John went on to front the band Red Sun for many years before becoming band leader on the QE2. Jake replaced Jeff in '65 and went on to front the band Ochre Daydream, becoming live on-stage engineer with ELO in the late 70's and backing vocalist on a number of ELO's world tours and on Jeff Lynne's solo Album Armchair Teatre.
Steph Griffin (of Decca recording Artists Sundance and Ochre Daydream) joined the fun on keyboards alongside. Graham Savage formerly of Zeth, The Likely Lads (and too many other forgettable names to mention!) on bass and supporting vocals.
Jake returned home to New Hampshire, USA in late 2008, but the band had had such a ball that they wanted to stick together and carry on playing good time, crowd pleasing music. After a number of personnel changes, the current line up was completed early in 2012 when Conrad Carpenter (formerly of Eagles tribute band Talon) joined on lead guitar and vocals, together with John Wilson on drums (formerly with Zeth, The Likely Lads and The Alvin Stardust Band)
So here we are today - five guys of a 'certain' age, but who can rock and roll, swing, swoon and sway with the best of them. Our set list is extensive and varied with songs that everyone will know from their past and they are delivered with a passion and professionalism that few others can match.

The Beatles Overtake Their Idols
Brow Beat is following the Beatles in “real time,” 50 years later, from their first chart-topper to their final rooftop concert. 50 years ago this month, the Beatles went on tour with one of their idols, Roy Orbison.
According to Roy Orbison, when he was first asked by Brian Epstein to tour England with the Beatles, he responded, “What’s a Beatle?” Orbison was fresh off hits like “Only the Lonely,” “Crying,” and “In Dreams,” and his popularity was rising fast in the U.K., but he wasn’t yet used to Mersey Beat bands with such goofy names. It was his first U.K. tour, and, as Orbison later recalled, he didn’t know what to expect. But the president of the Roy Orbison Fan Club wrote him a letter, explaining that touring with the Beatles would be terrific for him. They were No. 1 in England, Orbison’s fan explained, and would get him more exposure. There was, at first, no doubt about who the headliner would be.
The Beatles certainly knew who Orbison was. He was one of their greatest idols, and Lennon had modeled their first No. 1 on “Only the Lonely.” Later, when the Beatles were photographed with Orbison, Ringo, in particular, looked more than a little excited to be with him:
Nonetheless, by the time Orbison arrived in the U.K., his one-time opener had surpassed him in popularity. In a concession to audience demand, Orbison graciously agreed to share co-billing, and to let the Beatles close out each night.
Not that Roy Orbison would let himself simply be upstaged. Though he was greeted each night with a roar of screaming Beatles fans, clamoring to see their favorite band, he countered, rather ingeniously, by telling his band to play the first song pianissimo (as Spencer Leigh tells it), so that the audience had to hush in order to hear him. Once the crowd had quieted down, Orbison had no trouble transporting them with a few ballads. “It was pretty hard to keep up with that man,” Lennon later remembered, “He really put on a show, well, they all did, but Orbison had that fantastic voice.” Harrison agreed:
He’d had so many hit songs and people could sit and listen to him all night. He didn’t have to do anything, he didn’t have to wiggle his legs, in fact he never even twitched, he was like marble. The only things that moved were his lips—even when he hit those high notes he never strained. He was quite a miracle, unique.
The band would set up behind Orbison as he finished, hidden behind a curtain, and Harrison remembers listening to him do encore after encore and thinking, “How are we going to following this?” Ringo put it more bluntly: “It was terrible, following Roy. He’d slay them and they’d scream for more.”
Of course, the Beatles were beginning to grow quite a repertoire themselves by this point. Their standard set consisted of “Please Please Me,” “Love Me Do,” “Some Other Guy,” “Do You Want to Know a Secret,” “From Me to You,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” and “Twist and Shout.” So they didn’t fare too poorly either. Beatlemania was starting to set in, and they were being pelted by jellybeans night after night, just because George had mentioned liking them in an interview. The competition between the two groups spilled over to the tour bus. Paul later remembered how at the back of the bus Orbison would be writing songs like “Pretty Woman,” and it would just about make them jealous: “He would play us his song,” Paul said, “and we’d say, ‘Oh, it’s great, Roy. Have you just written that?’ But we’d be thinking, ‘We have to have something as good.’ ” As would later happen with groups like the Beach Boys and the Rolling Stones, their competitiveness with Orbison inspired them to produce some of their best work. For his part, McCartney was writing such songs as “All My Loving,” which he began composing on the tour bus and worked out on the piano at one of the venues.
The rivalry between the artists didn’t stop them from becoming friends—25 years later, Harrison would work with Orbison again, as part of the Traveling Wilburys. But within months, the Beatles wouldn’t need to share billing at all. When they went out on tour again in November, the tour was billed only as “the Beatles Show.”
