The Bob Dylan Connection
Keeping the music going is one part of what some of us do.
Three years after my brother introduced me to Bob Dylan's music, an English teacher started off the senior year of high school giving us the words to Dylan all typed out. The words....they made all the difference in the world. And the feeling, which came by way of the music of that voice I finally understood.
And I spent some time writing my own words.
A blog called Talking Points Memo found a transcript of Bob Dylan's recent talk. He must have talked close to a half hour, giving a free seminar on his view of music, and his reminder of the last fifty years. Here's the link: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/music-alone
There are times when I think music descends into hype, but it can always be found around somewhere. The music is there. And it's worth looking for.
