I am officially an old fart from another century! I felt the need to disclaim this! I just got home from a Dylan concert over at MSU. Earlier in the year I told of the fun I had purchasing tickets, the continuation gets better. I got to the auditorium to find no handicapper parking 'cuz Dylan's bus was parked in the handicapper lot blocking all the spaces. So I went to the parking lot next to the building where I was assured that there would be handicapper spaces as well. There were -- 5 in total! It was lucky that I went with someone because parking ended up being a couple of blocks down the street.

So I get in and find my seats. On the opposite side of the auditorium from the ones they said I was buying -- but hey they were good seats so... The concert started and every one stood up to give Dylan an ovation. The problem was they NEVER SAT DOWN!!!! The auditorium management said there was nothing they could do. They were however very effective in policing cameras. Had no problem telling people to put them away but actually doing something useful like asking people to sit down, NOPE!

So I paid a lot of money to hear Dylan (his voice is shot - if you think he ever had a "singing" voice). All around me people were complaining about the standing morons. These idiots were just plain RUDE. Hence the rant. I liked it when people of any age knew what was acceptable behavior in public and what was not. The offenders were of every age, equal opportunity rudeness. Total frakking, self-centered morons!

So ends the rant!

Was he sober?

I don't know. Only saw glimpses of his head. If not sober, very high functioning. His voice may be gone but he is an excellent musician. Played keyboards, guitar and harmonica as if sober.

I attended one concert/performance of his, long and long ago. He was either drunk or stoned (or sick, I have to admit) to the staggering point. Couldn't even remember some of the lyrics, and slurred guitar and harmonica. I don't remember him doing any keyboard on that one.
