One thought on “Dylan: A Biography

  1. This got a whole lot of stick from Bob fans and Uncle Tom Cobley and all, but if you approach it in the right way which is that it s a comic retelling of the story of an imaginary folk singer from the 1960s then it s just a complete hoot.Spitz gaily jumps into Bob s mind and recounts exactly what he was thinking when he met Suze Rotolo sorry, Suze Rotolo or when he heard Woody Guthrie for the first time and so on And Bob Spitz is so mean But hilarious Bob was drooling, Bob s eyes narrowed, Bob s [...]


  2. I picked this biography almost completely because not only am I a Dylan fan but I read Bob Spitz s biography of The Beatles earlier this year and loved his no nonsense style He s a biographer who doesn t care to mythologize his subjects and the truth that comes from that perspective is refreshing to see.With Dylan, Spitz presents a man who had a few personality qualities primarily ambition and insecurity that has absolutely directed his career Out of that, you are presented with a guy who, even [...]


  3. I think this is the Bob Dylan bio that changed my life It covered his early days, painted him as the ultimate jerk, yet still managed to leave me in awe of him I remember I read this while I should have been studying Yay


  4. As I read this book, I really don t like Bob Dylan much No doubt he was a creative genius minus the nonsense LSD ramblings and he has a knack for pushing his music to and over the edge of the next big thing, but his actions suggest an insecure jerk and I ve had my share of those.


  5. Okay bio of Dylan Has some good info, and makes some clumsy assumptions, with the occasional surprising insight Judgment of the work sometimes questionable, but not uninformed.


  6. Pseudo journalism at its finest We all know Bob is fallible Spitz seems to delight in pointing that out Still, obviously interesting to Dylan fans.
