      Love this!

    29. Sarah Dee

      My advice as a 66 year old woman is this: don't get anyone pregnant, stay away from drugs and excessive alcohol. Learn how to relax, let loose and have fun without substances. From my observation these things just take away a LOT of possibilities for your future. Stay strong and always open to the highest possibilities for yourselves and everyone else. You can now just drop this into your conversations: "when I was talking to Barak Obama the other day....." I'd love to be able to say that.

    30. Pilar González

      :-)) so wonderful!!!

    31. M Whitehead

      Dylan has a song for every occasion. For sure.

    32. mlrobards

      Check out Bob Dylan's Hurricane. Talk about a storyteller. Bob Dylan wrote music more reverent today than when he wrote. My husband introduced to this song. I put right up there with Bob Marley's Buffalo Soldiers

    33. Tomboy Glam

      Love Obama! Which one of you is older? And by how much?!

    34. Douglas Armstrong

      World's Greatest Leader

    40. SrRbx


    41. Joyce Fischer

      So cool! Obama called you! I know it was planned, since the producer was there with the books, but still. Amazing!

    42. Meghan Adrian

      Congratulations you guys! You should be so proud!!

    43. Andrea Hawkins

      Holy cats!!!! I love that Barack found you two!! I grew up listening to everything under the sun as well, so thankful for my parents.

    44. Belinda Burns

      Your followers are what America needs to come back to. All ages and races coming together to bond over what we have in common, not what divides us. You young men are the shining beacon on the hill. Look it up if you’re not familiar with the phrase! So damn impressed with you both. Hope my sons will follow your lead

    45. Belinda Burns

      Omg did you just interview Obama! Brothers, you have made it! So damn impressed! Much love you you both!

    46. Belinda Burns

      Dylan is never irrelevant. Every generation has their moment. And this is yours.

    47. Tracy Klinkroth

    55. jason thomas

      Amazing... Man I Miss Obama

    56. AmericanGirl

      So he can take the time to meet you two, but no time for his brother George living in the slums?! Figures! All for show with him!!

    57. Jean vICKERS

      I am a 73 year old white women who is a fan. Have been listening for a while and just subscribed. I love all genres of music and love that you are reaching all people--ages, races, cultures etc. and giving us all the gift of music through your eyes. Keep on doing what you are doing. You are both a treasure.

    58. Dee Dee

      Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016. "Hurricane" is as pertinent today as it was when he wrote it. Dylan personally started a movement to get Rubin "Hurricane" Carter released from jail.

    59. beth 9891

      I'll never understand how the USA went from this class act to the current clown in office.

    60. Beetlejuice

    64. Karen Eubank

      So good guys! Congratulations

    65. Maryella

      I was thinking "Bob Dylan? Seriously? Dude can't sing!" 😂😂

      1. Maryella

        @Catherine Sherratt LOL! It is true, the message is great, but dang, the voice is awful! It's like even the musical producers were on drugs back then! And Willie Nelson! What? Another dude who can't sing but made millions?🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

      2. Catherine Sherratt

        Haha my Mum always says "the person who told Bob Dylan he could sing was a liar" 😅 Yet he was one of my Dad's favourite musicians! So a typical scene in my house was Dad putting Bob Dylan on the Hifi (full blast) and my Mum emerging telling him to turn it down, and my dad pretending not to hear her because is was in the 'zone', eyes closed, singing along... 🤣🤣 Ah the memories... Doesn't it seem crazy that this song came out in '64, 56 years ago, and many people around the world clearly wanted change... Yet we can now look on in 2020 and think, it has taken a loooooooong time to get this far..? ...And the message of this song still rings true ... 😏🤨🧐

    66. Aleta Durney

      I love you Twins. I first thought you were going to make fun of an artist, and I decided to watch anyway, and I was so happy when you really listened to the music, and then gave it the merit it deserved. I love this about you. Thank you for being one facet of opening the minds of the people.

    67. Tia Cleary

      Thanks to the GOAT POTUS, and these lovely men for sharing with us. Times are a changing...starting Jan 2021, ty Biden

      Dylan did this back in the 60s during the first push of civil rights. I think we are in a second push because people just aren't quite getting it. Sooooo cool you got Obama on your channel. That is so amazing.

    91. Parmesana

      Bob Dylan(Robert Zimmerman)folk singer in the 60's ..folk songs and protest songs. the 60's were turbulent times. Vietnam War..and at that time, the US had a "draft"system..where the govt might choose you to go to war...and you HAD to go..or face jail. Many dodged the draft and went to Canada ..Rev King,Malcom X , marches desegregation.. Many demanded that the laws needed changing.

    92. Carol B

      Your mind can break you out of any prison, and shackles, just as one1 can change the world. Congrats on your success guys!

    98. Just Browsing

      I’m reading Obama’s book now & seeing this just made me smile. I miss him as our President. I’m miss Michelle. The last 4 years have left me stunned. As much as I have hope for the next administration, I long for the trust I felt when this beautiful family was our First Family. Such hope. Such promise. Such integrity. If you don’t agree, save your breath & save yourself the embarrassment.

    99. Just Browsing

      Just listen.

      Bob Dylan’s “Positively 4th Street” has long been my favorite. I’m 47 years old & a huge fan of the Twins! The speak the same language we were raised on. 🌈
