The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Burning CDs and Printing Lyric Sheets for Bob Dylan (Flagging Down} [10]
    • “He works hard. He doesn’t need the money. I know about more about Weir than I know about Dylan, and I don’t think he likes to be home. Weir likes to be out playing music and living that life. And I assume Dylan is the same way. That’s the life he’s choosing to live, to be out on tour.”
  • Dylan’s World Gone Wrong (Peter Stone Brown) [8]
    • “This album is no attempt to cash in on the so-called “unplugged” craze – it’s way beyond that. The point is the songs, Real songs, valid ones that have been around for years, which Dylan makes live again.”
  • Timothée Chalamet Goes Acoustic (GQ) [5]
    • “Timothée Chalamet has been preparing to play Bob Dylan for what feels like an eternity—or at least since 2020, when he hunkered down in rural Woodstock, New York to “practice his guitar and harmonica in peace” during the throes of lockdown.”
  • Shane MacGowan: They Gave The Walls A Talking Exhibition Opens in the Bob Dylan Center (HotPress) [5]
    • ““It was a special kind of occasion last night,” Hot Press editor Niall Stokes said this morning. “The team at the Bob Dylan Center have been brilliant throughout and the exhibition truly looks amazing – not least residing alongside the fantastic presentation of the work of the great songwriting maestro Bob Dylan himself, at what is a unique celebration of fearless creativity.”
  • The Mind’s Eye: Ebet Roberts (Memphis Magazine) [8]
    • ““Bob Dylan was one of my heroes and I’d always wanted to photograph him, so I said, ‘What time does he go on?’ He said ‘Four o’clock this afternoon. Just jump on a shuttle at LaGuardia and I’ll meet you at the backstage gate.”
