Preview, Scorsese’s “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story” coming to Netflix

Scorsese is Bob Dylan’s definitive screen biographer. Remember his 2005 “No Direction Home” PBS “American Masters” on the man/the legend?

The only epic tours worth remembering were “disasters,” ruinously expensive, epic in intent, unforgettable to those who saw them. Prince’s “Purple Rain” tour might not qualify, but Joe Cocker’s “Mad Dogs & Englishmen” certainly did.

Dylan’s ’75 “Rolling Thunder” concert, medicine show and happening, was the Holy Grail of such tours. Cannot wait to see this. I had a concert-crazed friend in college who saw it and went on and on about “that fiddle player.”

June 12, we’ll see what he was on about.
