Hi there,

Could someone help me please - I am looking for the original source of the (paraphrased here) "Tom Waits is my secret hero" Dylan quote.

Thanks in advance.

In the Biograph interview from 1985 with Cameron Crowe, Dylan says :
The media is a great meatgrinder, it's never satisfied and it must be fed, but there's power in the darkness too and in keeping things hidden. Look at Napoleon. Napoleon conquered Europe and no one even knew what he looked like ... people get too famous too fast these days and it destroyes them. Some guys got it down - Leonard Cohen, Paul Brady, Lou Reed, secret heroes - John Prine, David Allen Coe, Tom Waits. I listen more to that kind of stuff than whatever is popular at the moment, they're not just witchdoctoring up the planet, they don't set up barriers. Gordon Lightfoot, everytime I hear a song of his, it's like I wish it would last forever.
