A quick note to music writers everywhere:

Yes, Bob Dylan is about to publish Vol. 1 of his autobiography.

Yes, I hear he wrote a song back in the Sixties that maybe you listened to once, high on acid, at a People's Park protest. Maybe you were making out on a brown corduroy couch at Swarthmore College. I don't really care either way.

No, Bob Dylan is not "the most influential cultural figure now alive."

To most of us, he's just a tired old windbag who crapped out long before Shot of Love. Please, spare us this "culturally relevant" bullshit. Especially post-Renaldo and Clara.

Thank you.
