This page is a collection of drawings, photos, videos and more of Bob Dylan. Jeff would like to teach a class on Dylan one day as he has been listening to his music and reading about his songs, life and more (his favorite book is On the The Road with Bob Dylan written by Larry "Ratso" Sloman, who he had the opportunity to meet in Atlantic City in early 2014 at a Mike Tyson show at Caesars (Sloman co-wrote Tyson's 2014 auto-biography). Jeff also was lucky enough to meet and sit in on a couple classes on Dylan taught by the great Professor Christopher Ricks at Boston University in the 1990s.
Many of the stories, essays Jeff has written about Dylan or have mentioned him in or interviewed other musicians about Dylan appear on the fantastic Web site expectingrain.com. We will attempt to accumulate some of those links here as well. Most appear on the Atlantic City Weekly site as well.
You can also see some of Jeff's Dylan drawings on the Art page on this site.
On YouTube, check out the Schwachter Music channel for Dylan music and various favorites.
Jeff has also had the opportunity to interview folks such as G.E. Smith, Larry Campbell, the Rolling Stones' Ron Wood (listen to Jeff and Ronnie sing "Seven Days" together (!!) during the rare interview!) , Richard "Cheech" Marin (who has a very interesting connection to Dylan), Aretha Franklin, Jimmy Webb and many others on Dylan.

Jeff's award-winning feature on how Dylan and the Hawks came together in the summer of 1965 at the Jersey Shore is one of Jeff's pieces he is most proud of. Uncovering some unreported facts and more. Hoping to document the story for the 50th anniversary in 2015 as well as play a mega Dylan tribute show in AC. Here is that story in which Jeff interviewed the son of the owner of the nightclub Tony Mart (Carmen Marotta) where the Hawks were playing a summer-long residency when Dylan plucked them for his upcoming electric shows.
Below the photos are numerous videos of Jeff and different bands playing the music of Bob Dylan.
