"He's a heavy dude! A great musician and he's gonna make it. He's a great tribute to Rock 'n Roll"

On a variety of club dates, Bob Dylan ventured out to see Paul James perform. Dylan was inspired to ask the Toronto-based guitar player to a jam. James admitted to the folk music legend that he new many of Dylan's tunes, but to Paul James' surprise, Dylan wanted to play some of his songs. They became good friends and Bob Dylan invited Paul to play with him at Kingswood Music Theatre - Wonderland Park - Toronto. Canada.
