"If they remember me at all its devilish, because that means that there's been a legacy left, and you don't want to leave a legacy. If you try to attain some type of righteousness in this world you don't want to leave a legacy. A legacy of what, you know? It's all in the mind anyway."

I love that quote. I think the part of his temperment that puts him at ease with risking or even seeming to actively pursue destroying "his legacy" is a big part of what made him a great artist in the first place and, certainly, what allowed to continue being one long after most were resting on their laurels.

why does no one make him stop tarnishing his legacy?

Maybe because he's a grown man who does what he wants.

"Legacy" and "legend" are concepts that Dylan does not feel at ease with, clearly. He, perhaps rightfully, sees them them as just other ways to constrict people's freedom, and to stop them from doing what they feel like doing in their lives. Legacy is about death.

Correct. Plus I'm pretty certain Bob's legacy is already sealed favorably. Now that should put an end to that.

we hardly need to have a debate to explore this issue, all of the calamitous effects of a "Legacy" will be demonstrated by the Rolling Stones tonight on Pay Per View.

The Jeff Beck collaboration is one of the best things to have happen to Mick in about 25 years.

He really is an alien in this world, and I mean that in the best way.

What about the legacy?

Snarky is much ruder than sarcastic.

everything depends on context - snarky among teenagers would be similar to glorious praise in other circles.

Legacy is something you need when you're death. When you are alive, big fat pineapples are far more handy. Mr. Dylan is more alive than death, thanks heavens. Got it?
