Here’s a clip of Bob Dylan, taken from D.A Pennebaker’s film, Don’t Look Back which is a document of the artist’s 1965 UK tour. This was the infamous tour where he “went electric” with a band in tow (actually the Band, technically). As a result, he was booed and derided every night, because they all wanted to hear him be a folky troubadour, not a rock star.
They were wrong about the music, of course. But, that’s history for you.
Anyway, the clip. It’s a snapshot of an artist on his very last nerve, fried and frazzled at being so far from home, and largely surrounded by people who didn’t really like him including his own fans. But, he had the English language to turn to, always one of Dylan’s true loves. Take a look.
