BTW: I LOVE the Dave Matthews Band version of All Along the Watchtower...one of my favorite DMB songs ever.

Cool Santa Mugs!
I used to hate Dylan's voice, until I learned to sing along, and love his music, singing and all! Of course, like Linda, I too grew up in that era! (but, I'm still 36). LOL
BTW: Those music videos were great too!
