I miss JS being musically relevant too. The band hasn't really been in touch with the times lyrically since PK was writing his Sandinista/Nicco tunes during the KBC/JA reunion er and Marty wrote "Solidarity". I'm not counting "I Can Fly", which was mostly written in the 80's (it's included in embryonic form in Nicaragua Diary). |
Then again, it never hurt Dylan much, did it? He's spent the last 10 years honing his abilty to re-invent both his classic and more obscure stuff from the 60's and 70's. He's released a great album ("Love and Theft"), but on tour he rarely plays anything post 1978.
I wouldn't mind hearing a few of those edgier 80's PK tunes live: Connection is very relevant these days, plus just about anyone hearing it outside of JS completists would think it's new.
