Bob Dylan (Time Magazine Interview)
A young Bob Dylan skewers a reporter from Time Magazine who is trying interview him. This is from the seminal documentary "Don't Look Back" about Dylan's 1965 London tour. It serves as testament to the power of music during that era and the seriousness with which both the artists and the general culture approached it. In our Po-Mo era of artists as managed industries with a coterie of publicists, agents, managers and PR people, it's difficult to imagine that same kind of engagement would ever be allowed or that an artist who expressed it would be given any press time, unless like Bono they tried to, with mixed results, use the ubiquitous marketplace as a tool to address social issues brought about by the very marketplace. They now say that in the fragmented media landscape of today no artist will ever dominate the charts like Michael Jackson again -- but Michael was not the end of an era, he was, like Jaws and Star Wars, the beginning of one - Pop Culture.
