"Did they censor you from singing what you wanted on the Ed Sullivan Show?" "Yes. It was a long time ago." "You fly your own plane?" "Yes, yes." "I'm really not the right person to tramp around the country saving souls." - interview with Playboy, March 1966. Here is the ultimate collection of interviews and encounters with the genius musician Bob Dylan, born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Minnesota. He was a child of the open road, having run away from home seven times from the age of 10 to 18, travelling with a carnival on and off for six years. Spanning his entire career from 1962 with a radio interview to an interview with Rolling Stone magazine on 14th May 2009, this is the 2017 reissue of the acclaimed 2006 publication. It creates a multifaceted cultural and journalistic portrait of the artist and his legacy and this edition includes several new pieces. Among the highlights are the seminal Rolling Stone interviews by Jann S. Wenner, Jonathan Cott, Kurt Loder and Douglas Brinkley among them as well as Nat Hentoss's legendary 1966 Playboy interview. Surprises include Studs Terqel's radio interview in 1963 on WFMT in Chicago, the interview given to screenwriter Jay Cocks in 1964, a 1965 interview with director Nora Ephron, and an interview Sam Shepard turned into a one-act play for Esquire in 1987. Biography, oral history, cultural time capsule, music lesson and psycho drama, arranged chronologically, Mr Dylan assesses his life and work in these honest, open and thoughtful musings. A fascinating window into his one-of-a-kind mind. 524pp.
