For those who love to rake the muck, and those still transfixed by the tidal wave of tragically twisted talent the epoch saw. Somehow I still l can't imagine Dylan being traumatized by what anybody thinks of him.... wouldn't you love to know if there was a point in the career of each artist at which the Jac Holzman types told them "now look, if you want to be a really big </span>star, here are the values and political agenda you've got to push" -- ? Surely they didn't all just immediately go peace/love/drugs/booze/socialist vicarious-minority at once, spontaneously? Somebody had to set the agenda and somebody had to put it over on the singer/songwriters to turn them into respectable judas-goats.
