To live outside the law you must be honest...but must you be poor?

How much does a member of Bob Dylan's (or any other big musician's) touring band get paid? Are they likely paid per show, or some other arrangement? Would they receive lodging and per diem in addition to a salary? I assume they'd get stuff from the dressing rooms at the shows, but would they have their own stuff in the tour rider? (Some of those guys have played with him a long time.) (Other touring musician information welcome!)

Dylan Videos

I'm a pretty hardcrore Bob Dylan fan, and the few clips I've seen from this concert have always fascinated me. Is the full concert available anywhere? I seem to remember seeing Love Minus Zero/No Limit with similar facepaint. Or are the clips just bits from Renaldo and Clara? Notwithstanding the answer to that, can you please point me toward your favourite Dylan clips?

If I listen to Dylan, what else would I enjoy?

I really enjoy listening to Bob Dylan's older music (pre 1970) and Im wondering are there any other artists (past or present) that would be of any interest to me? Im looking more towards folk than rock, more acoustical than electric but any recommendations would be great! Thanks!

Mysterious Bob Dylan musical theory

In Bob Dylan's book Chronicles, Vol. 1 he describes an esoteric numerological scheme for playing guitar, saying most melodies are based on the number 2, but that he's taken it to the next level by choosing what to play based on the number 3. Can anyone explain what he is talking about? [more inside]

Tangled Up In Memory

I just LOVED part one of the Bob Dylan biopic on PBS last night, "No Direction Home" by Martin Scorsese. There was a poem by Dylan Thomas that was quoted by one of the interviewees, and I think it had to do with reflections, at the end of life, at foregone opportunities. I have tried to find that poem online this morning, but I can't. Can anyone help? [more inside]
