Bob Dylan Guitarists Are A-Changin’
Bob Dylan has a new guitar player, five dates into his summer tour. Blues player Duke Robillard is out and has been replaced by Charlie Sexton, who Robillard replaced three months ago.
No one from Dylan’s camp is commenting, but just last month, perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, Robillard wrote on his Facebook page, “For sale: Bob Dylan CD and record collection, slightly used.” He followed that with, “I will be selling a lot of guitars and amps soon. I’ll keep you posted.” Robillard’s last show with Dylan was Sunday in Nashville.
This is Sexton’s third go-round with Dylan. His first tour of duty was from 1999 to 2002, followed by 2009 to 2012. Robillard played just 27 shows with Dylan.
