More on Bob Dylan at the Skirball Cultural Center

Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956–1966
Skirball Cultural Center presents BOB DYLAN’S AMERICAN JOURNEY, 1956–1966, Organized by Experience Music Project
January 11–March 30, 2008

Multimedia exhibition features newly developed interactive gallery that invites visitors to re-mix and re-imagine original Dylan recordings

LOS ANGELES—Few figures in the history of American popular music have attained the status of Bob Dylan (b. 1941). To critical and popular audiences alike, his distinctly American body of work matches the legacies of Walt Whitman, Louis Armstrong and his own early hero, Woody Guthrie.

On view at the Skirball Cultural Center from February 8 through June 8, 2008, Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956–1966, organized by Experience Music Project (EMP), is a visual and aural recounting of Dylan's transformation from rock 'n' roll–loving Midwestern teenager to Greenwich Village folk troubadour to the rock star/poet who electrified contemporary songwriting. The exhibition not only illuminates this fertile decade in Dylan’s personal and artistic development, but chronicles a tumultuous period in American history, marked by the Civil Rights and anti-war movements.

I'll definately be there. And I might suggest you check out my new novel, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS.

It's a a murder-mystery. But not just any rock superstar is knocing on heaven's door. The murdered rock legend is none other than Bob Dorian, an enigmatic, obtuse, inscrutable, well, you get the picture...

Suspects? Tons of them. The only problem is they're all characters in Bob's songs.

You can get a copy on or go "behind the tracks" at to learn more about the book.
