Bob Dylan Graffiti


Reason 3,711 I love New York City...

On my way to meet my buddies Mike and Brent for lunch, I was walking through the Upper West Side. On 76th Street there was a building under construction. One of those beautiful pre-war brownstones that will sell for $5 million bucks when finished. On the door of the building was a familiar figure.

A painting of one my heroes. The folk singer bard Bob Dylan. The image shows Bob from about 1966, when the incredible documentary Don't Look Back was shot. And the records "Highway 61 Revisited,""Blonde On Blonde" and "John Wesley Harding" were recorded. That was when Dylan was rarely seen without his Ray-Ban Wayfarers. He would pose for shots like this one.

Nothing like a little of Bob Dylan's presence to make a Manhattan Saturday better.

Nice - the artwork is a repro of a photo taken from the June 1965 "Like a Rolling Stone" recording session. Just an FYI - "John Wesley Harding" as recorded in October/November 1967 and Dylan was fully into his country hermit recluse stage by then with short hair, beard, and no Ray Bans.

Great painture, I want to do some too on my city, Coimbra, Portugal. The first one will be the one that appears on the sleeve of No Direction Home. Just one thing, Don't Look Back was filmed on 1965
