Sounds like Jann really shot himself in the foot this time. The chickens are coming home to roost.

Your sources are so forthcoming. It’s unusual to read anything, much less a biography, where people as famous as Dylan and McCartney openly mock the subject of the book.

....With Dylan, that was just a weird interview. Basically, he recited these answers to his secretary, and they were sent to me.

You mean you didn’t interview him in person?

Well, they didn’t want that to be known, but x it. You know? That’s the truth. They sent me all these answers and they were weird and kind of like―what’s the word? Parsimonious.

Now I'm confused. Aren't they talking about the 1969 interview?
But there is an audio of that interview?

Or are they talking about a another/second interview?

Lousy thread. No Bob Dylan quotes, only hearsay. Waste of space.

No, this is a new 'interview' the author 'conducted' with Bob for the Wenner bio that's coming out next week.

And Wenner hates it. Which means I'm gonna love it!

There's no interview in the link - it's "about" the interview - slight difference.

Makes absolute sense though, because that's how his recent interviews read
with Bill Flanagan; composed. So that's how he chooses to work these days.

Geez. This is a smart crowd here, you all can figure it out that the link is to an an interview with Jann Wenner's biographer that references a previous interview he had with Bob Dylan.

Anyway, I pasted the only Dylan references from this interview.

Nice. More copy'n'paste Bob. Nothing new under the sun.

Sounds like that short Q&A that Dylan did in '07, for Rolling Stone's 40th anniversary.

That one was in person tho if memory serves? I recall audio of the two of them chatting before a gig in Amsterdam.

When I think of Jann Wenner, I think of the 1980's film Perfect with John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis. When I think of John Travolta, I think of that movie when he plays an angel.

I'll rent this book and never read it again.
