Bob Dylan sat for first radio interview in years with National Public Radio’s Steve Inskeep. (I continue to shake my head at NPR’s firing Bob Edwards; imagine a conversation between Edwards and Dylan!)
The most interesting part of the interview for me was his admission that in the late 1980s, he was enjoying his concerts no more than we were. I completely gave up on him after a horrible show in State College, PA, in 1989, when he was playing so perfunctorily and ending songs so early that even the soulless G.E. Smith was visibly disgusted.
