I have always loved Bob Dylan. There is always a Dylan CD in my car. I doubt if a week has gone by since my schooldays when I didn't listen to a Dylan song.

That doesn't mean I was looking forward to hearing him in the 3Arena a fortnight ago. I went out of duty. The last several times I have heard him, I thought he was awful; too loud, and banging out songs that ranged from unrecognisable to indistinguishable.

I met a few people before the gig began and there was not a lot of hope in our hearts.
