It was very nasty business and we don't like to talk about it.

Last I heard he was standing trial for his part in a live organ harvesting ring. I wouldn't expect to hear from him anytime soon - apparently the jury didn't look too kindly upon his practice of targeting young orphans (the so called Candy-for-Kidneys scheme). God alone knows what else he was up to.
Perhaps some other forum members can provide updates.

I think there is a wonderful synergy that today is Easter Sunday. Though McGuire is no longer with us, his impact is felt everywhere.

We never even finished installing the first six before they decided that "Lean" was the new religion to blindly follow.

That also sheds light on many puzzling tirades, like his theory of the relationship between horsepower and torque. It's the biblical view!

No, I'm fine thanks - after a while I thought your mix of pseudoscientific lyrics was funny. Also, you made a shining example that nothing beats education in the end, I've used it as an example many times since.

Why are you talking about yourself in a third person? A symptom? :)

It wasn't a live feed, that was McGuire impersonating His Bobness. He was doing a better job...

Or was it Magoo impersonating Maguire impersonating Zimmy ? I'll check on stage tonight.

Hey, Bob is a bit of a car/motorbike guy.Maybe he has strong views on Torque and Horsepower !

Here's Bob 2002 :
I've got 8 carburettors and boys I'm usin' 'em all
I must be short on gas,my motor's startin' to stall.

I bet Bob is on the horsepower side of the argument. His lyrics suggest that.

That song (Summer Days) is on the current setlist. Got to love the Dave Kemper drum licks. And the lyrics... the lyrics are Dylan, what can you say. If it’s information you want you can get it from the po-leeece.

Dylan is indeed a gearhead, like most any kid who grew up in Minnesota in the '50s. In high school he had a pink Ford convertible and a Harley.

In the film about Andy Whorehole's "girlfriend" Edie Whatsherface, they had Dylan riding around on a Trumphy.

On a moere serious note, the loss of both really decreases the comedy value around here...

Also, presumably, the same Trumpet on which he had the infamous crash in Bearsville, NY in July of '66. Except it probably wasn't much of a crash, more of an excuse to step off the wheel devised by his manager, Albert Grossman. In '65 he made three of his greatest albums: Bringing it All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. Earned himself a vacation, I think.

That guy was doing the sound mix at the Sydney Dylan concert last night I swear !

Sadly Barb dropped "Summer Days" from the setlist after doing it at Byron Bay. Good move,I'm a great fan, but his voice needs a Rest.His
never ending tour is turning his larynx to jelly.His best efforts were the songs he accompanied himself with an electric keyboard set to an old
fashioned Hammond -meets-fairground-organ style.

Bob proved once again he is No Torque,Just Hoarsepower,with his minimalist band intro, a "thank you friends" and a shallow bow.

It's really not fair to compare the two. Even if I didn't agree with what Mac had say and he was being a prick, it was pretty obvious he was an intelligent, well read person. PII on the other hand was a boastful, self-righteous, loud-mouthed imbecile that ultimately had nothing to bring to any discussion.

Are you putting forth the notion that he doesn't have a conspiracy theory surrounding the birth certificate? That would be a heroic assumption.
