"Jim, you have got to stop telling those ridiculous stories about Bob Dylan not wanting to go to the south .."
I know the story from an interview with Theodor Bikel, which I still have here
It is convincing enough for me to tell the story as I do, and frankly, in a world that still digs up MacCool thirty years after his death to give him a kicking with stories I know to be blatantly untrue, I can't be arsed about how 100% accurate an insignificant story about somebody as predatory as Dylin is
If you people were equally concerned about stories about MacColl, Lloyd, Sharp (and now Child) were I might think a litle differently
