Bob Dylan on BBC2

Sitting watching the first part of the Bob Dylan Documentary. Excellent.
Really should replace all of my stuff of his with CD versions. Then I will be able to play some.

Makes the comparisons between Pete Doherty and Dylan seem absurd, Dylan's a totally different league.

Bob Dylan

Could someone tell me why he is suddenly all over the Press and TV.
Yes he was agood song writer and singer , but didn't other artists sing his songs better than he did ?
Brian Ferry (Hard Rain ) for example.
I just don't get it why the BBC are giving 4 hours to Bob Dylan at this stage of his life ?

Think the reason for all the coverage is that Bob Dylan rarely ever gives interviews at all, so the release of this documentary was quite a major event.In fact this was the first full length film biography made about Dylan and contains a lot of previously unseen footage of Dylan from the 1960s etc.

It is getting so much coverage on the BBC because it is actually a BBC co-produced film. It is also the first first collabaration between the two major public broadcasters in the UK and USA. It was actually directed by Martin Scorsese, the director of such films as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull etc, so cant really ask for a better director either.

Think it is being released on dvd very soon too.
If, after all, men cannot always make history have meaning, they can always act so that their own lives have one.
