I thought it might be amusing to post some pictures of Bob looking awkward, grouchy, or just good ol' misanthropic. (He's not exactly the dude who practices his smile for the camera.) If he happens to look really awkward in the presence of other celebrities, so much the better!


I'll start:

As this is a photo based thread I've moved it to the appropriate location.

The photo was taken by Allen Ginsberg. I believe it was 1990. But I could be wrong.

Those pictures are great! Here is the one I'd love to see:


Idol Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ on bagpipes
By GERRY DUFFY
12th October 2011, 11:00 pm

(Story excerpt)
MUSIC legend Bob Dylan could soon be playing Like A Reel-ing Stone — after splashing out on a set of bagpipes.

The 70-year-old icon bought the instrument from the National Piping Centre in Glasgow...

I think you're right, it's at least saved in my 1990's Dylan picture folder.

Thanks Anr Bjotk and SirDogg :) Ginsberg must have been teasing Dylan. A very quick search and I found this blog post with some other photos of the same series, in all of which Dylan had such a crazy look :lol:

How about the video of Bob handing the Swedish king the Polar Prize in order for the king to hand it back to him?

I guess so. Those pics always fascinated me. They were such good friends (though you get the notion that Bob's somber personality and Ginsberg loud and "colourful" personality didn't quite gel). I wouldnt be surprised if Ginsy decided to capture Bob's bad mood as some artistic expression rather than have him pose in any traditional way. I can't imagine Bob would concede to have his picture taken, even by a friend, against his will.
No mention of it in the superb Ginsberg biography, but I can re-check.
