A few years later, Von Schmidt remembers being backstage with Dylan at a Joan Baez concert, smoking their brains out. "I was already in a zone. All of a sudden, Joan calls Dylan out to the stage and he sings what seemed like a hundred verses of A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall. I couldn't believe how this guy could remember all the verses. He may have missed a few; he may have made up a few. I was amazed by his ability to function. He had that covered."
