Writer Bob Spitz, author of Barefoot in Babylon, the story of the 1969 Woodstock festival, spent years researching Bob Dylan's life, interviewing people who had known him ranging back to his earliest days in Hibbing, Minnesota. Spitz did get people to talk on the record, and while his book collects myriad quotes from Dylan associates, the overall tone of Dylan: A Biography tends to veer toward being unaccountably mean-spirited. The book does document the recollections of some people important in Dylan's life, but it's an uneven read thanks to the persistently negative tone and Spitz's penchant for writing scenes in a hipster style that usually tends to work against the subject (who is, after all, more than hip enough on his own). --Robert McNamaraAbout the Author:
Bob Spitz is the author of The Beatles, a New York Times bestseller. His articles appear regularly in almost every important magazine and newspaper. He lives in Darien, Connecticut.

Book Description WW Norton Co, United States, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. 206 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In Dylan , Bob Spitz provides a dramatic yet clear-eyed view of the enigmatic guru of modern music. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with Dylan s family, friends, lovers and fellow musicians. Spitz presents the true Bob Dylan in a vast array of guises: the early years in small-town Minnesota, when Bobby Zimmerman - loner, gadabout and local weirdo - reinvented himself as Bob Dylan and set out to be a star; his struggle to conquer the night world of Greenwich Village in the early 1960s; the cataclysm that rocked the music world when he went electric; the mad years, when drugs and paranoia corrupted his gospel of peace and love; his flirtations with political causes, born-again Christianity, Orthodox Judaism and the glitter of superstardom. This new edition of Dylan includes a complete, updated discography. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780393307696
