Brilliant book, and for many years it was the best Dylan bio out there.

the fact Scaduto was the first....of over well over 1000 authors to recognize the brilliant artistry of Dylan...well, that is something that can never be overestimated.

I remember when it was Scaduto and Craig Mccregor and Dylan's first Lyrics book (3 BOOKS in toto ONLY!!!) ....that was it as far as books about Dylan back in the early 70's. Over 1100 books by early 2000's

quite amazing...

RIP Anthony Scaduto

Sad news. May he rest in peace.
Scaduto was the pioneer of dylan biographers, many tried to follow in his footsteps. And many failed.

Yup for me it was Scaduto, McGregor and the first edition of Gray's Song and Dance Man which came out around 1972. After that there seemed to be a hiatus.

Hunching his shoulders, speaking with a kind of passionate intensity Dylan explained his interest in this book:

“You see, I'm a Gemini. I wouldn't put too much stress on it but, there’s a split in the Gemini. He blows hot and cold. I feel that strongly. Right now I’m hot and interested in the book you’ve done, and I figure I can help you. Six months ago I didn’t care what you were doing. Now I care. Six months from now I won’t care any more. But now I want to help you.”

I thank you, Mr. Tambourine Man, for opening the doors and giving me a peek inside.


~ Anthony Scaduto
- from the 1971 preface to ‘Bob Dylan- an intimate biography’

RIP Scaduto. He and Shelton are the grandfathers of Dylanology. Great book and a bible for Dylan fans through the 70s...

But where are the pages from the original draft before he edited it down?
