Bob Dylan introduces Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan (above), during his admitted "wasted 80s" period, when he seemed to be having the most fun. He proved in the film Hearts of Fire he really shouldn't try acting and instead just be himself, which curiously he seems to do the very best when not on a stage but on the world stage. . .walking around in a neighborhood — whether in England (see "Don't Look Back"), or shown above in Hamilton, Ontario. The press conference below has always been a sly one hour of brilliance.
