Bob Dylan Responds to Maureen Dowd & Co.
Or: Reason #115 why somebody needs to be fact-checking Maureen Dowd’s columns.
Bob Dylan responded to allegations by Dowd and others that he censored his lyrics to comply with demands from the Chinese government. The last paragraph is especially hilarious. From Dylan’s website:
As far as censorship goes, the Chinese government had asked for the names of the songs that I would be playing. There’s no logical answer to that, so we sent them the set lists from the previous 3 months. If there were any songs, verses or lines censored, nobody ever told me about it and we played all the songs that we intended to play.
Everybody knows by now that there’s a gazillion books on me either out or coming out in the near future. So I’m encouraging anybody who’s ever met me, heard me or even seen me, to get in on the action and scribble their own book. You never know, somebody might have a great book in them.
