Wallflowers Unplug for Tour

Thirty-eight years after his dad went electric, Jakob Dylan and his Wallflowers are going acoustic. Well, not exactly. “The Carter Family might have played acoustic, but I don’t know if anybody has since,” says Jakob. “Once you plug in that first cable, y’know… ”

Regardless, on their cross-country theater tour this month, the Wallflowers – keyboardist Rami Jaffee and bassist Greg Richling along with touring guitarist Yogi and drummer Fred Eltringhamwill be sporting wood. Dylan says that in addition to acoustic interpretations of Wallflowers hits, the band may throw in its cover of Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic” (it appears on this summer’s American Wedding soundtrack, due July 22nd).

So will the young Dylan be blowing a harmonica? “No,” he says, laughing, “I couldn’t tell you I have a knack for that instrument.”
