The author met Dylan when the scruffy young singer first arrived in New York and soon became his friend, champion, and critic. Shelton was given special access to Dylan's parents, whom no other journalist has ever interviewed in depth; to his brother and to childhood friends, fellow musicians and to his manager, Albert Grossman and others. This book took 20 years to complete and was first published in 1986, hailed as the essential biography of this moody, passionate genius and his world. Twenty-five years on, this new edition has been long overdue. The editors have restored major parts of the original manuscript previously unpublished, and have provided updated footnotes and a chronology of Dylan's life and career subsequent to his triumphal tour in 1978. This new edition acknowledges Bob Dylan's seventieth birthday and is a remarkable tribute to his enduring influence and unique achievements in our popular culture over half a century. Black & white illustrations throughout. ; B&W Photographs; 4to 10" - 13" tall; 360 pages
