With Ziggy Stardust, David Bowie singlehandedly dragged rock and roll out of the 60s. Well done, David!

Summering with Swedes, Volume Seven: The Takedown

The score so far:
Punk Rock- 0
Capitalism- 1

Maybe that's why people like Dylan become so opaque, because their work means so much (absurdly so) to so many fucking people. Must be really weird. Because for a long time, and forever for most of us, the world. Does. Not. Care. One. Iota about whatever we create. And that's fine. Why should it? Everybody has their own radar screen to monitor. But how weird would it be to have thousands or more strangers looking to your work for answers. Totally bizarre, and off putting, I bet.
