‘You don’t have to be Jewish to be fascinated by Bob Dylan: Prophet, Mystic, Poet, but you need to believe…’ – Rural Intelligence

Dan Shaw of Rural Intelligence conducted an interview with me over a wonderful dinner at Café Adam in Great Barrington, last week, and the resulting article, ‘Seth Rogovoy Sees Dylan’s Jewish Spirit Blowin’ in the Wind,’ is almost as good as the meal (that’s no reflection on Dan — that’s high praise for Adam Zieminski’s cuisine).

Among Dan’s observations are that “You don’t have to be Jewish to be fascinated by Bob Dylan: Prophet, Mystic, Poet, but you need to believe, as Rogovoy assuredly does, ‘that Bob Dylan is one of the few rock music artists whose records are worthy of intellectual examination.’”

Dan also says that “It’s not hyperbole to say that Seth Rogovoy considers listening to — and performing — the music of Bob Dylan a spiritual experience.” I’ll accept that.
