A J Weberman is the "person" who ran Dylan out of the Village. He led Demonstrations at his town House on McDougald Street, and even went through Dylan's Garbage. If I had known it was AJ Weberman who did those things I would never have Purchased "The Devil and Bob Dylan".
I wonder if Weberman has spent any time in a mental Health Facility? Accusing Bob Dylan of making a Pact with the Devil?! Sounds Crazy to me.
I haven't seen any reviewer remark on factual errors in the Book. 1. The Author confuses the Songs "Where are You Tonight", and "Absolutely Sweet Marie". 2. AJW says that Dylan wrote "The Weight". Robbie Robertson is listed as the Author of "The Weight". But as detailed in Levon Helm's Auto Bio, the song was probably a result of collaboration of The Band members . 3. Weberman Quotes "Message to Mary". "Message to Mary" was an Everly Brothers Hit, probably written before Bob ever wrote a song. 4. He brings up the rumour that Lorre Wyatt wrote "Blowing in the Wind". He says he doesn't believe that rumour, because of the white racist sub-content of the song! But, he doesn't tell the True Story, which is that Wyatt saw an advance copy of the lyrics in "Broadside", then did the Song at a HS Talent show, before Bob's Version was released. And then claimed he had written the song.
And Weberman considers himself a Dylanologist?
Save yourslf a lot of time and aggravation and don't Buy this book.
AND, Yes, I read all of its approximate 500 pages.
if they feel his interpretations sound plausible, it never the less is an interesting work. There can be no
doubt that Weberman cares deeply about his subject, and has put a tremendous amount of time, research,
and yes, even meditative thought into the writing and production of this book. That effort alone deserves to
be applauded, and even if you find you disagree with it's premise, it's certainly a useful book, as far as being
a teacher for thinking out of the box creatively. I give it five stars.
