On Highway 61: Music, Race, and the Evolution of Cultural Freedom

Dennis McNally knows a thing or two about cultural history. As the biographer for both the Grateful Dead and Jack Kerouac, this bestselling author lives, breathes, and fully engages with his passion.

Bob Dylan | Greek Theatre | 10/11/09 | Review

Bob Dylan still rocking a place like the Greek Theater in 2009? Anyone who would stated that to be possible in the late sixties would have others thinking it to be very unlikely. By the late sixties Dylan had crashed his motorcycle badly and had turned into a recluse poet, shying away from the claims that he was one of the big “prophets” or “fathers” of the hippie generation. Dylan rejected the notion preferring to be labeled a human being like the rest of us. He changed his harmonica folk blues to a more country tinged rock n’ roll.
