Official Bob Dylan Festival Opens in London
Via the Guardian:
Although Bob Dylan entered his 65th year a few weeks ago, he has never seemed more current. Great anti-war anthems such as Masters of War and A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, composed at the dawn of the 1960s, are more perfectly attuned to the mood and concerns of the present time than anything being created by contemporary songwriters. Conceived in the era of Kennedy and Khrushchev, these songs could be redirected straight to the present inhabitants of the White House and the Kremlin, with only a change of name on the address labels.
The Official Bob Dylan Exhibition runs from September 16 until October 15 at the Sony Eriksson Proud Gallery, Stables Market, The Gin House, Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AH.
In case you've never noticed, the "tag line" on TalkLeft from day one (see bottom left of screen)has been this line from Subterranean Homesick Blues:
The pump don't work 'cause the vandals stole the handles.
