I loves me some Van, for certain. But best of the last fifty? That last fifty includes Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Warren Zevon, and a number of other very special folks. Let's just agree that Van has been awesome indeed for a very long time.

i agree

into the mystic is one of my favorite songs

when i look at clips from the 70s, i wonder --- "what were we thinking"?

then i remember we weren't.

thanks for the variety here. i never know what i will read, much less see -- when i visit.

I absolutely agree with you. (What a surprise. ha)

Morrison. Dylan. Ray Davies. Brian Wilson. Depends on the day.

Van was great and is still great.

The piano player was ahead of his time - took me 40 years to get a combover that good workin'.

I'd have got laid a lot less often in my twenties if it wasn't for this man.

How can that not make him great?
