President Obama Describes Meeting Bob Dylan

On September 17, 2010, President Obama conducted an interview with Jann Wenner for Rolling Stone magazine. It’s an extensive interview and a very good read. The interview will appear in the October 15 edition. The interview covers various topics, dilemmas and issues within the country.

Towards the end of the interview Wenner asked the President what he thought about Bob Dylan performing at The White House earlier this year. This was the President's response: “Here's what I love about Dylan: He was exactly as you'd expect he would be. He wouldn't come to the rehearsal; usually, all these guys are practicing before the set in the evening. He didn't want to take a picture with me; usually all the talent is dying to take a picture with me and Michelle before the show, but he didn't show up to that. He came in and played "The Times They Are A-Changin'."

"A beautiful rendition. The guy is so steeped in this stuff that he can just come up with some new arrangement, and the song sounds completely different. Finishes the song, steps off the stage — I'm sitting right in the front row — comes up, shakes my hand, sort of tips his head, gives me just a little grin, and then leaves. And that was it — then he left. That was our only interaction with him. And I thought: That's how you want Bob Dylan, right? You don't want him to be all cheesin' and grinnin'  with you. You want him to be a little skeptical about the whole enterprise. So that was a real treat.”

'Wait!' he said in a commanding voice, giving Frodo a quick look from under his bristling brows.
