    Inside Bob Dylan’s Lost Interviews and Unseen Letters

    Glover, with carte blanche to get personal, asked Dylan about his notorious 1965 performance at the Newport Folk Festival, in which he was backed by an electric band — to the boos from a great many folk purists. Rumor had circulated that the disheartened Dylan cried backstage. “No, I wasn’t crying,” he said. “Pete Seeger was crying.” The sight of Seeger sulking in a car, in fact, with the windows rolled up, was seared in Dylan’s mind. “[People were] pounding on the windows — ‘Come out, Pete, come out, Pete!’ — he was just bawling. So I went back on solo and sang ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ and ‘Baby Blue’ because that’s what they wanted to hear. They were just like little babies. They wanted to hear that, and that’s all they wanted to hear — so I went and sang it for them. At that time I just knew they were a bunch of fucks, and I just thought, ‘Oh, forget it!’ if that’s all they want you to do is sing ’em to sleep.”

    Glover wondered whether that experience contributed to a newfound vitriol in the lyrics of Highway 61 Revisited, recorded during the same period. “The Newport thing — I don’t know, I’ve never really been what you’d call a professional entertainer,” Dylan offered. “For someone like Steve Lawrence or Robert Goulet, to go up in front of a large audience at Newport and get booed — that would be a considerable jolt to their career. But to me, it was just one of those things. My life was like that — booing didn’t matter, you know: up and down.”

    Didn't want to start a new topic just to make a request.
    Today is Dylan's 80th birthday, so early this morning, I wrote a piece about his career, but it's sitting on Thingss Not T&F waiting for moderator approval!!
    I wasn't finished, so Garry, would you please approve it, as it's a timely piece, and I'd like to finish what I started ON his birthday.
    And of course hopefully get others' comments!
    Thank you!

    It just seems like his works are worth at least 3X that number. Id say he is $700M poorer !

    Not bad. Next to it on Youtube was Bob doing it live. With George Harrison on guitar, Leon Russel on bass and Ringo on tambourine. From Madison Square Garden in 1971. No mention that it was the Bangladesh Concert . . .

    I feel the same way I suppose. Though as in choirs they can be fine as a group.

    Great memories. Saw them live together in 1999.

    Many thanks. While this is rough & stiff around the edges, it's a must-watch document for fans of both artists.

    Nice.
    Funny (not the ha-ha kind) to see 5'7 Dylan towering over 5'3 Simon.
