What’s your favourite Dylan song?
Blind Willie McTell

What’s your favourite Dylan album? Changes fairly constantly but probably either Highway 61 Revisited or John Wesley Harding

When did you start listening to Dylan? 
First started listening in the early 70’s and it is a little known fact to a whole generation of English fans the key album was More Greatest Hits!

Tell us more about your upcoming book! 
Essentially it is a labour of love by two Dylan crazy Londoners!!

How many times have seen Dylan live?
Only seen Dylan 5 times!

Favourite show?
1978 was extraordinary because of the excitement of his 12 year absence but would love to go back to 1981 when I saw him at Earls Court and like many was disappointed in the ‘Christian’ songs(we were all wrong!!)

Besides Dylan, who are your mostly listening to? 
Only listen to Dylan(and Dina Regine is fantastic!)

The original critique and still the best- Song and Dance Man by Michael Gray

Please finish this interview with your favourite Dylan line: 
Idiot Wind
Blowing every time you move your mouth
Blowing down the back roads leading south
Idiot Wind
Blowing every time you move your teeth
You’re an idiot, babe
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe
