Bob Dylan: Voice of youthful protest.

Selected quotations
from a new interview with Jonathan Lethem in Rolling Stone.

On them new-fangled Compact Discs: "You do the best you can, you fight that technology in all kinds of ways, but I don't know anybody who's made a record that sounds decent in the past twenty years, really."
"You listen to these modern records, they're atrocious, they have sound all over them. There's no definition of nothing, no vocal, no nothing, just like — static."

On music downloading: "I remember when that Napster guy came up across, it was like, 'Everybody's gettin' music for free.' I was like, 'Well, why not? It ain't worth nothing anyway.'"

Speaking of Bob Dylan, how come we never see him and Danny Finkleman in the same room at the same time?
