50 Years of Blonde On Blonde: A Conversation with Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show

Old Crow Medicine Show is in the middle of a tour celebrating 50 years of Blonde On Blonde, performing the album start to finish (and encoring with a few additional Bob songs). The band debuted this show a year ago with two nights at the CMA Theater in Nashville, in conjunction with the “Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City” exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame, and they have a new live album out consisting of cuts from those shows. Old Crow is currently half-way through a US tour, then heading to the UK and the Netherlands in late June.

NME THE HISTORY OF ROCK 1965 - New Uncut/NME Magazine with lots of Bob content! Order your copy here!

Welcome to 1965. As the year dawns, the personalities who will define much of the music of the next fifty years – be that The Beatles, Bob Dylan, or the Rolling Stones – are all still in their early 20s. They are already working at an extremely high level, producing classic work like "Help", "Highway 61", and “Satisfaction”. In their wake, a second wave of innovators are busy determining their own paths, inspired by the work of others (“they knocked us out” is a phrase you’ll read a lot) and their own unique visions.
