Bob Dylan, enigma and superstar, has intrigued millions of fans for four decades. His life, music, and influences have been explored in numerous successful books and the market for Dylan-related products continues to grow. Nonetheless, the oral records of his careerhis interviewshave been unavailable until now. Collected here are the most revealing, interesting, and personal of Dylans interviews. As a group they show a brilliant, adored musician, unsettled and angered by the fame and reverence surrounding him. After releasing the prescient The Times They Are A-Changin in 1964, Dylan cemented his role as an acknowledged icon. In a contemporaneous interview with Time magazine he denigrated his new status, belligerently attacking the interviewer, pushing him nearly to tears. In 1966 Dylan went electric and over the next quarter century his sound changed again and again. After producing country albums, he announced in a Rolling Stone interview that the archangel Gabriel had visited him, and that he was a born-again Christian. He proselytized on stage, and then released albums in the 1980s coinciding with accelerating cocaine use. Afterward, his music became an ongoing history of Americas folk tradition. With Time Out of Mind in 1997, Dylans relations with press and fans improved. In 2001 he gave polite interviews and released Love and Theft, a fan favorite that went gold in a week and was nominated for the Grammys Album of the Year. This book, edited by critically-acclaimed novelist James Ellison, is aimed at fans interested in Dylans description of his journey from ornery protest-song superstar to acclaimed Grammy-nominee.
