Dylan, Wilco, My Morning Jacket join forces at Darien Lake

The news hit just prior to July 4, that Bob Dylan has parted ways with esteemed blues guitarist Duke Robillard rather abruptly after only a few months. Robillard made his debut as a member of the Dylan group at a recent show in Alumni Arena at the University at Buffalo. and judging by the sound of things, was poised to make a lengthy and considerable mark on the Dylan sound. But the only constants in Dylan-land are constant change and touring, and so Robillard was out and Charlie Sexton – whom Robillard was replacing when he joined the band – was back in.

Happily, Sexton has always made a significantly positive contribution to the Dylan band, and having him back should shake things up in a positive way.
