Thread Name: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Funny, I was just reading a new (mediocre) book about the making of "Blood on the Tracks", and one of the musicians said that Dylan made multiple complex key changes on his guitar without using a capo, quite casually. I thought it was just the kind of thing Rick would have liked to hear about, damn it all.
We once played part of the Cynthia Gooding show tape on Rick's show -- an early protest song (can't remember which one), and we talked for quite awhile about how powerful a protest singer he was, and the interesting, casual, way he talked on that show about who he was influenced by. We also had a good laugh about his lying.
