« The most egregious reporting on Dylan in China yet... | Main | Maureen Dowd: Blowin' in the Idiot Wind »

April 9, 2011


In fact, "Blowing in the Wind" is taught to college students all over China. By Chinese teachers. I often hear it wafting from nearby classrooms. It is the only Dylan song 99.99% of Chinese people might know, although they won't know who wrote it.

The reports are, as you say, ridiculous.

In Japan at Budakan Dylan did an encore of a song which he said he was still proud of, though written many years ago,it was 'The Times They are A'Changing', What's changed except Dylan.I was a fan of his from the start and still am - its hard to critisise a Genius butits harder still not to in these circunstances.Bob should remember the students at Tiananmen Square or maybe he's stating the truth abot himself in the song: 'I used to care but times have changed',Maybe it should be 'I have changed'.A.Murphy
