There couldn't be two music legends more different than Bob Dylan and Frank Sinatra --- but Dylan has decided to channel his inner "Blue Eyes" with his new album, "Shadows in the Night."
Having recently listened to every song in the album, Glenn shared his reaction on radio Thursday.
"I was listening to it, and I was thinking, 'You know, I should go see Bob Dylan before he dies. I should go see him in concert before he dies.' You know, he's 70 years old. There are legends that you have to see. Bob Dylan is a legend," Glenn said.
Co-host Stu Burguiere --- not a Dylan fan --- agreed to both statements, but not the sentiment.
"I think both of those sentences, independently, are true: There are legends that you have to see, and Bob Dylan is a legend. However, that does not mean that he is one of the legends that you have to see," Stu said.
When he began listening, suffice it to say the experience was not what Glenn anticipated.
"It's really bizarre," Glenn said. "I listened to the whole album. I don't know if I'd listen to it again. But I listened to the whole album because it is so longing and so mournful and sad."
It actually drew a close comparison to Johnny Cash's final album.
"There's something about [Cash's] voice at that time that just shows he means it," Glenn said. "You know what I mean? There's something about the way he --- because of the seasoning in his voice, the decades of experience. I found that the same way with the Bob Dylan thing."
"It was fascinating to listen to," he said. "You feel the pain and not quite despair. But for sure there seems to be a longing for something lost, missing, or 'unfound.' I know that's not a word, but it's the right thing. There's something unfound in his life."
