Thread Name: Bob Dylan 50yr. hoax
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan 50yr. hoax
Go along with that LH, but that wasn't what Dylan was really about - certainly not in the context of the songs he was making at the time.
I remember how everybody made a great issue on the wonderful job he was doing for The Civil Rights Movement, yet when he was asked to join Seeger and the rest of them on the Freedom Riders protests on the buses down South, his manager said he was "too busy" and "couldn't afford the fair anyway?"
In the end he was shamed into going when actor Theodore Bikel paid his fare.
