On A Night Like This

I wasn't going to post tonight, but then Bob Dylan turned up on 60 Minutes and the Simpsons! I've known for nearly a week that Bob was going to give his first television interview in nearly 20 years to 60 Minutes tonight, so I made plans to watch it at a neighbor's since I don't have a TV set. Then I find out that the Simpsons also has Bob Dylan on their show (for the first time!), also giving an interview. Coincidence? One has to wonder.

As for the 60 Minutes interview, Dylan was as cryptic, vague and fascinating as ever. The interview was basically a tie-in for his autobiography, Chronicles; the questions were pretty poor and he looked and sounded uncomfortable as usual, but somehow his charisma and raw personality still managed to shine through.

You can read the interview, basically word for word, at this link: Bob Dylan's 60 Minutes Interview
