If you’re not watching the Martin Scorsese directed documentary on Bob Dylan on BBC2 right now.. why the hell not? Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers have already been name-checked, as well as more obvious influences like Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson, Pete Seeger, et al.. and it’s only part 1.. Wonderful stuff. Watch it if you can.. or you could buy the DVD.. as well, that is.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
