We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Great lesson in that story. The folks that disrupt, that innovate, that push people to think (and hear) differently last and have a significant impact on our lives. In this context, the musicians that give the people what they say they want end up as the one hit wonders, if anything.
If you liked this clip, I'd recommend Elijah Wald's Dylan Goes Electric!, which describes the people and events leading up to the night of July 25, 1965 when Dylan, backed by Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper, stunned the Newport Folk Festival crowd with LOUD electric versions of "Maggie's Farm" and "Like a Rolling Stone". The last chapter talks about the tour with Robbie Robertson, Levon Helm, etal and about the booing, and also about the impact Dylan had on rock music at that time. Great read.
