Bob Weir – When I Paint My Masterpiece (Live in 1989)

So Bob Dylan turned 70 on May 24th. In honor of his birthday, Rolling Stone is running a My Favorite Dylan Song piece, where artists like Bono and Bob Weir name their favorite songs. For Bono, it’s Like a Rolling Stone; for Weir, it’s The Times They Are A-Changin. I like both those songs, but neither of them is my favorite. If I had to choose, I’d say it’s When I Paint My Masterpiece. As my favorite Dylan song, I’ve cataloged and collected a lot of different versions. I think Bobby Weir is one of the greatest Dylan interpreters out there, and in honor of Dylan’s birthday, I’d like to give you a little Bob on Bob. Here’s  Bob Weir doing When I Paint My Masterpiece at the San Gregorio Festival back on May 28, 1989, by his lonesome:
