Check, check, check ...

BB NOTE: Perhaps this is a good time to remember Pete Seeger at Newport in 1965, trying to find an ax to cut the power to Bob Dylan. It didn't work then, and it won't work now. There's no going back.

-Dylan to the Band.

(yes I know this was the Royal Albert concert - but it was an electric moment - no pun intended.)

I remember crossing paths with Pete Seeger on Sproul Plaza at the University of California - Berkeley one day in 1972 when I was a student there. I shook his hand. He was a little annoyed.

My big moment in American folk history! (Although I did see Peter, Paul & Mary at Wolftrap, outside Washington DC once.)

Pete Seeger was a true American hero, but this was not his brightest moment.

Out of curiosity, how can a homophobe pretend to like Dylan?

Well, I find Allen Ginsburg an intrigue as a beat poet, so figure that one out as well (though Kerouac is king here).

Ask me a question about Dylan and we'll see who's pretending (if I don't know the answer, I'll ask Doug Leblanc). ;-) Guess stereotypes don't work after all.

Thanks for dropping by, anon.
