Ep 31: Interview w/ KEITH MILES (Author of ”BOB DYLAN IN LONDON” and ”BOB DYLAN IN THE BIG APPLE”)

November 19, 2021

This is Play That Rock'n'Roll's interview with author Keith Miles about his books, "BOB DYLAN IN LONDON" and "BOB DYLAN IN THE BIG APPLE". In this interview, we discuss how this project came to be and dive into some of the famous stories from Bob’s time in London in the ‘60s, like his infamous on-camera argument with folk-singer Donovan and the time he was called a “Judas” for going electric. We discuss Bob’s return to London in the early ‘90s for the World Gone Wrong album, and then we move to New York for a few stories, like his legendary 1984 appearance on Late Night with David Letterman with the punk rock band the Plugz.
