"I've never seen a Bob Dylan smile, except in photos or on the stage. Not the real thing." Britta Lee Shain was a friend of Bob Dylan's until he asked her to join him on the road in the mid 1980s, at which point she became more than a friend. In this intimate and elliptical memoir of their time together, at home in Los Angeles and on tour with Tom Petty and the Grateful Dead, she offers a unique portrait of the romantic, earthbound, and poetic soul trapped in the role of Being Bob Dylan. "If you were my woman, I'd be worth four times as much." Entire libraries of books have been written about Dylan, but few--if any--offer any lasting insight into the man behind the shades. Until now. Written with the elegance of a poet and storytelling snap of a novelist, Seeing The Real You At Last is a poignant and tender romance that reveals Dylan's playfulness, his dark wit, his fears and struggles, his complex relationships with the men and women in his life, and, ultimately, his genius.

“The War and Peace of Rock and Roll.” —Bob Dylan In 1975, as Bob Dylan emerged from eight years of seclusion, he dreamed of putting together a traveling music show that would trek across the country like a psychedelic carnival. The dream became reality, and On the Road with Bob Dylan is the ultimate behind-the-scenes look at what happened when Dylan and the Rolling Thunder Revue took to the streets of America. With the intimate detail of a diary, Larry “Ratso” Sloman’s mesmerizing description of the legendary tour both transports us to a celebrated period in rock history and provides us with a vivid snapshot of Dylan during this extraordinary time. This reissue of the 1978 classic resonates more than ever as it chronicles one of the most glittering rock circuses ever assembled, with a cast that includes Joan Baez, Robbie Robertson, Joni Mitchell, Allen Ginsberg, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, and a wild entourage of groupies, misfits, sinners, and saints who trailed along for the ride. Sloman candidly captures the all-night revelry and musical prowess—from the backstage antics to impromptu jams—that made the tour a nearly mystical experience. Complete with vintage photos and a new introduction by renowned Texas musician, mystery writer, and Revue member Kinky Friedman, this is an unparalleled treat for Dylan fans old and new. Without question, On the Road with Bob Dylan is a remarkable, revealing piece of writing and a rare up-close and personal view of Dylan on tour. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A vivid, first-hand account of Nobel Prize-winning singer and songwriter Bob Dylan as an artist, friend, and celebrity, illustrated with never-before-seen photographs, and told by an engaging raconteur who cut his own swathe through the turbulent counterculture. August 2014 marks 50 years since Bob Dylan released his fourth album, Another Side of Bob Dylan. Recorded in one night, in the middle of a turbulent year in his life, the music marked a departure from Dylan's socially-conscious folk songs and began his evolution toward other directions. During the years they spent together, few people outside of Dylan's immediate family were closer than Victor Maymudes, who was Dylan's tour manager, personal friend, and travelling companion from the early days in 1960s Greenwich Village through the late 90's. Another Side of Bob Dylan recounts landmark events including Dylan's infamous motorcycle crash; meeting the Beatles on their first US tour; his marriage to Sara Lownds, his romances with Suze Rotolo, Joan Baez, and others; fellow travelers Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Wavy Gravy, Dennis Hopper, The Band, The Traveling Wilburys, and more; memorable concerts, and insights on Dylan's songwriting process. On January 26th, 2001, after recording more than 24 hours of taped memories in preparation for writing this book, Victor Maymudes suffered an aneurysm and died. His son Jacob has written the book, using the tapes to shape the story. A Los Angeles Times Best Seller.

The Nobel Prize winner Bob Dylan is HIV Positive and at one point in his life had full blown AIDS. This unequivocal statement one of innumerable reasons this book is going to be hated by Dylan fans and I am going to be vilified: but screw them. They said I was making up shit when I said Dylan was a dope fiend but then he admitted on tape. Bobby was sexually active during a time when AIDS was first emerging and contracted it from a woman who had sex with bisexuals or gays. Bobby can never get rid of this virus but he has it under control Most Of The Time. In his poem Ain't Talkin he wrote: It's bright in the heavens and the wheels are flying Fame and honor never seem to fade The fire's gone out but the light is never dying Who says I can't get heavenly aid? "It's bright" it's hopeful "bright" as in 'he has a bright future' "in the heavens" in the heavens but not here on earth "and the wheels are flying" and the big wheels of science are working diligently "Fame and honor never seem to fade" because they wish to be awarded a Nobel Prizes for their work "The fire's gone out" the most destructive part of the disease is under control "but the light is never dying" however the HIV virus, like glowing embers, still circulates within Dylan's bloodstream and for all he knows suddenly certain tell tale signs appear and HIV is AIDS, "Who says I can't get heavenly aid?" even through the HIV virus is under control it can still become the AIDS virus at any moment. Alternate version of Can't Wait 1997, "My hands are cold / The end of time has just begun / I'm getting old / Anything can happen now to anyone." Another part of this expose concerns Dylan's career as a male prostitute. He almost got killed by one of his Johns. I shucked everybody when I came to New York. I played cute. I did not go down to the Village when I first got to New York. I have a friend.... he's a junkie now. We came to New York together. He wrote plays. We hung out of on 43rd Street, hustled for two months and did everything. I got the ride here in December 1960. I came down to the Village in February. But I was here in New York in December 1960. Hustling with this cat. I was not scared of people, you dig? You name it we did it. Sometimes we would make one hundred a night, really, from four in the afternoon until three or four in the morning. We would make one hundred and fifty or two hundred and fifty a night between us and hang around in bars. Cats would pick us up and chicks would pick us up. And we would do anything you wanted, as long as it paid. It was very cut-throat. You gotta shell out a lotta money just to hang around, so we weren't making anything. We ended up in the village. And I had the guitar. I didn't have any place to stay but it was easy for me. People took me in. That's where I almost got killed before I came down to the Village. I didn't plan to stay in New York. I left anyway in the spring and didn't plan to come back. I came back because I really missed it. There was no other place that I really could go. The first places I played in were on 44th and 43rd Streets between Broadway and Eighth Avenue in any of those bars. I didn't come down to the Village until two months later. Nobody knew I had been hustling uptown.

Beginning with rockabilly, moving on to folk music, sliding over to electric, and falling into a psychedelic phase, like a chameleon Bob Dylan has changed his skin repeatedly over the years, juggling his image with apparent ease and subverting the prevailing social and aesthetic models each time. His Supro guitar and the leather jacket - reminiscent of James Dean; the muse of his hobo period Suze Rotolo and his legendary Triumph Bonneville; the Newport Jazz Festival and the Gaslight Cafe in Greenwich Village: artist Matteo Guarnaccia has documented this pilgrimage of styles stage by stage, year by year, with a wealth of detail. The clothes, faces, music and places of those years become subjects to colour in, paper-dolls to dress, and board games to assemble, while the characters of his songs provide the members of a colorful circus. This is the ultimate collector's activity-book to be approached with glue, scissors and coloring pencils, dedicated to all the fans of the legendary singer-songwriter.
