This is Dan Gursky’s first appearance on RTS. Same goes for Kevin Goff.
This article here claims to be “The absolute definitive list of the greatest rock n roll French horn” and who are we to argue?
And there’s supposed to be French Horn on this, but no one at Suburbs Pod HQ could really hear it:

Love the podcast, it’s just the perfect length, usually, for my drive to work.
One thing, though. Al Kooper played on Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” but he was inexperienced at the time on organ. He had come to play guitar but after Mike Bloomfield showed up and blew him away, Kooper decided to fake his way on the organ, using his piano chops. The producer wanted to erase his parts but Dylan heard them and demanded the producer turn the organ up.
Thanks Jeff, that’s an interesting bit of Dylan trivia we did not know. Always thought Kooper was an expert at every instrument — love that Dylan wanted the organ part louder. Glad he did!
I believe it’s in his book “Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards”. I remember reading an excerpt in Rolling Stone many years ago.
