Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Dylan was never the darling of the old socialists - his milk and water politics never caught on with them.
When Dylan was asked to take part in the Civil Rights protests in the South, he refused, giving the excuse that he couldn't afford the fare
He was eventually shamed into showing his hace by actor/singer, Theodor Bilkel, who presented him with a ticket.
Dylan became very much accepted by the 'revolution without commitment", 'flowers in your hair' mob.
