Rock Fans Outraged As Bob Dylan Goes Electronica



NEWPORT, RI—Audience members at the Newport Rock Festival were "outraged" Monday when rock icon Bob Dylan followed up such classic hits as "Like A Rolling Stone" and "Maggie's Farm" with an electronica set composed of atonal drones, hyperactive drumbeats, and the repeated mechanized lyric "Dance to the club life!"

"We came here to see the authentic Dylan, the one with the Stratocaster guitar and signature wild blues-rock band behind him," audience member Robert Hochschild said. "Then he walks out with these puffy headphones, some turntables, and a laptop? The guy's a Judas." When asked later about his musical transformation by reporters, Dylan said he had nothing to say about the beats he programs, he just programs them.

chissà se è vera...

però questa storia di Judas è vecchia e stravecchia, i matti non cambiano mai....

ma non avrà il diritto di divertirsi come caXXhio vuole, il nostro Bob?

Fosse vera, spero lo sia, sarebbe bellissima.
Mi ricorda un altro grande musicista, completamente diverso da lui che si divertiva a scandalizzare il serioso pubblico jazz. Come di chiamava il tipo? Mi sembra Miles Davis.

Ma come si chiama l'album dei Midlake, Panthertrot?
