Thread Name: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate
Been away taking in the glories of the latest Ken Loach - was hoping to return to be bowled over with thought-provoking argument - ah well!!
Still only vacuous defence of something the |Master Himself has fessed up on.
"Dylan was anti-war, that alone would place him in the anti-establishment camp?"
Dylan's Anti-war stance came when it was a fashion item 'must' - I can find only one somewhat anodyne mention of Vietnam during thee whole of the decade that his government was soaking Vietnamese peasants in burning petrol and filling their air with carcinogenic Agent Orange (which was also killing off U.S. pilots)
C'mon' - even L.B.J. could sing 'We Shall Overcome with a straight face!!!"
