Bob Dylan on the Medium of Music

Today’s online Wall Street Journal has a wonderful article that has revelatory insights into Bob Dylan and his thoughts about music, the lockdown…even social media.

Here’s an excerpt:

I think social media sites: bring happiness to a lot of people. Some people even discover love there. It’s fantastic if you’re a sociable person; the communication lines are wide open. You can refashion anything, blot out memories and change history. But they can divide and separate us, as well.

I’m with Bob on that!

He has a new book out, The Philosophy of Modern Song, and it sounds like something I need to buy and read.

Here’s the link to the article.

I hope you enjoy it as much or even more than I did!
