The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Recently Discovered Early Painting by Bob Dylan Revealed (Hot Press) [8]
    • “Sandy talked about the painting through the years, and how she got it from Dylan in exchange for astrology readings…. I remember seeing the back of the painting. I recall the unique way it was signed with musical bars and notes. The painting itself looked like many abstracts that I had seen from the sixties”
  • Daniel Kramer, Photographer Who Documented Bob Dylan’s Electric Transformation, Dead at 91 (Rolling Stone) [5]
    • “Kramer called up Dylan’s management firm and arranged a one-hour photoshoot in Woodstock, New York. But the two hit it off, and Kramer wound up working with Dylan for five hours.”
  • Ira Ingber on Working with Bob Dylan (Hound Dawg Blog) [8]
    • “It turns out my aunt through marriage is his mother’s second or third cousin. When I told him about that later on, his response was, in typical Bob fashion, ‘everybody’s related to my mother.” That was his answer.”
  • Artists on Murder Most Foul (Peter Stone Brown) [10]
    • “Elvis Costello: This song is “about President Kennedy” in the same way that, Moby Dick is about a whale of a time. Make no mistake, this is a writer and – perhaps more importantly – a singer, operating at the top of their powers.”
  • Three Musicians Who Auditioned to Play with Bob Dylan (Flagging Down) [8]
    • “With all the Dylan band members I’ve interviewed, one thing that comes up a lot is the strange audition process to join Bob’s band. For one, it’s rarely called an “audition.”
  • Bob Dylan and Basketball: 17 Surprising Connections (5×5) [8]
    • “One fellow hoopster, David Reitman, spent long hours playing and shooting, sometimes in hope that Dylan would show up. One day, Bob did, asking, “Mind if I shoot here?”
