Rock Docs covers one of the big ones in this week’s almost-holiday edition of the podcast. Your hosts, Andy Keatts and David Lizerbram, are talking about Bob Dylan. Specifically, they’re discussing Don’t Look Back, the 1967 documentary about Dylan by D.A. Pennebaker. It’s one of the most celebrated and well-known music documentaries about one of the most celebrated and well-known artists. What is there to say? It’s Don’t Look Back for chrissakes.
This week’s guest is Ray Padgett, author of Pledging My Time: Conversations With Bob Dylan Band Members. He also pens the the Dylan Substack “Flagging Down the Double E’s,” and the “Every Tom Waits Song” Substack. He’s also a true Dylan head and a real gent.
