It’s been a good year for singer/songwriter/author Bob Dylan. He recently was selected to receive the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, and back in May, he found his lucky guitar pick he lost in 1965. 51-years later–– Hello, it was in the pocket of his Levi’s!
2016’s been a very good year indeed!
We invited Mr. Dylan to The Lint Screen offices for an exclusive interview, and he arrived with a fresh-baked homemade cinnamon bundt cake and a box of Starbucks Verona Blend. Was the mysterious recluse ready to become a ‘cluse?’ He lit a Marlboro red, tossed the pack on the table, plopped into a beanbag chair, and we got right into it.
TLS: So, Bob, what kind of tires do you prefer?
BD: No one’s ever asked me that before.
TLS: We dig deeper than most.
BD: Guess I’m a Goodyear guy.
TLS: Nice. Well, thanks for coming by, and thanks for the coffee and cake. Delicious!
BD: That’s it? No questions about my Nobel Prize? My songs? My life?
TLS: No. We’re good.
BD: You don’t want to ask about my writing?
TLS: Hmmm. When it comes to writing, do you prefer blue or black ink?
TLS: Good. Thanks.
BD: No, wait. Black. I meant black––
TLS: I think we’re done here, Bob Dylan.
BD: You journalists are tough.
With that, the big shot left our offices. Bob, if you’re reading this, come back and get your bundt cake pan–– you’ll want it for touring. And congratulations again on finding that lucky pick.
