  • Bob Dylan – Tight Connection to My Heart

    May 23rd, 2020

  • (Michael McClure, Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg)

    During his 1965 tour with the Hawks, Bob visited Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s book store, City Lights, in San Francisco, and posed in an alley behind the store.
    Bob’s original intention was to use one of the pictures from this session on the cover of his next album, Blond on Blonde.

  • Tight Connection to My Heart directed by Paul Schrader

    Paul Schrader, writer of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, and director of late 70s sleaze gems Blue Collar, Hardcore, and the climate dread classic First Reformed, teamed up with Dylan for a doozy of a music video for “Tight Connection to My Heart (Has Anybody Seen My Love),” from 1985’s divisive Empire Burlesque lp. True to form for both artists, the video is an elliptical and visually ambiguous affair, something either half-remembered or imagined all together.

  • Bob Dylan on Little Richard Tribute

    I just heard the news about Little Richard and I’m so grieved. He was my shining star and guiding light back when I was only a little boy. His was the original spirit that moved me to do everything I would do. I played some shows with him in Europe in the early nineties and got to hang out in his dressing room a lot. He was always generous, kind and humble. And still dynamite as a performer and a musician and you could still learn plenty from him. In his presence he was always the same Little Richard that I first heard and was awed by growing up and I always was the same little boy. Of course he’ll live forever. But it’s like a part of your life is gone.

  • Jacob Dylan – Echo in the Canyon

    January 4th, 2020

  • Jacob Dylan

    Dylan has written notable hits such as “6th Avenue Heartache” and “One Headlight”, which is listed at number 58 on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 Greatest Pop Songs”. He has won two Grammy Awards, and released two solo albums: Seeing Things in 2008 and Women + Country in 2010. Women + Country became Dylan’s highest-charting album since the Wallflowers’ 1996 breakthrough Bringing Down the Horse, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard 200.

    Echo in the Canyon (Laurel Canyon Music Scene documentary) – Rolling Stone

    The film, directed by Dylan’s manager and former record exec Andy Slater, combines history lessons with new performances of the era’s music (from “In My Room” to “Goin’ Back”) from Fiona Apple, Beck and others. Dylan found himself nostalgic for an era before his birth. “There was a lot of support,” he says, “and a lot of tradition.”

    Bob Dylan

    To Edna Gundersen, USA Today:
    GUNDERSEN: Your son Jakob has been very much in the spotlight this year. Do you worry about him?
    DYLAN: I’m proud of his accomplishments. He’s still young, and he’s come a long way in a short time. I worried about him when he started out. I just didn’t want to see him get roughed up. This business can really throw you into deep water. He’s had his ups and downs. What he does with the future remains to be seen, but he and his band have done rather well. In the contemporary music scene, they have got a voice to be heard.

  • Edgard Varese Frank Zappa Connection

    December 22nd, 2019

  • Letter to Edgard Varese, Zappa was 16 years old

    Dear Sir:

    Perhaps you might remember me from my stupid phone call last January, if not, my name again is Frank Zappa Jr. I am 16 years old … that might explain partly my disturbing you last winter. The reason for my letter at this time is that I am visiting relatives in Baltimore and as long as I am on the East Coast I hope I can get to see you.

    It might seem strange but ever since I was 13 I have been interested in your music. The whole thing stems from the time when the keeper of this little record store sold me your album “The Complete Works of Edgard Varèse, Vol.l.” The only reason I knew it existed was that an article in either LOOK or the POST mentioned it as being noisy and unmusical and only good for trying out the sound systems in high fidelity units (referring to your “IONIZATIONS” [sic]). I don’t know how the store I got it from ever obtained it, but, after several hearings, I became curious and bought it for $5.40, which, at the time seemed awfully high and being so young, kept me broke for three weeks. Now I wouldn’t trade it for anything and I am looking around for another copy as the one I have is very worn and scratchy.
