Bob Dylan  

Playboy:
You're not noted for cordial relationship with other artists. Yet there was the rumour that you flew to Europe to spend a sabbatical with Bob Dylan. What about it?

Bowie:
That's a beaut. I haven't even left this bloody country in years. I saw Dylan in New York seven, eight months ago. We don't have a lot to talk about. We're not great friends. Actually, I think he hates me.

Playboy: Under what circumstances did you meet?

Bowie:
Very bad ones. We went back to somebody's house after some gig at a club. We had all gone to see someone, I can't remember who, and Dylan was there. I was in a very, sort of . .verbose frame of mind. And I Just talked at him for hours and hours, and whatever I amused him or scared him or repulsed him, I really don't know. I didn't wait for any answers. I just went on and on about everything. And then I said good night. He never phoned me.

Playboy: Did he impress you?

Bowie:
Not really. I'd just like to know what the young chap thought of me. I was quite convinced that what I had to say was important, which I seem to feel all the time. It's been quite a while since somebody really impressed me, though.

"Didn't get on with him at all. I had a dreadful time with Bob Dylan. Absolutely ghastly. I talked at him for hours. I was fairly flipped out of my head, if I remember, and I just talked and talked. The funniest part about it was that I'd been talking about his music and what he should do and what he shouldn't and what his music did and what it didn't, and at the end of the conversation he turned to me and - I hope it was in jest, but I have a feeling it wasn't - he said (falling into a banal American accent), "you wait till you hear my next album". I thought, "oh no, not from you, please! Not that, anything but that!" I don't know whether I was in the correct state to appreciate him, but it was the first and last time I ever met him. He never made any other contact with me (laughs uproariously). That was in New York. I didn't find him odd, that was the problem - there again, when people meet me they generally don't find me as odd as they would have me be, so I guess it's one of those things where you build up a particular picture. I lost all that fascination for him, I must admit, quite a number of years ago, though. Once I had quite a thing about him."

David Bowie, Melody Maker, February 1978

Kurt Loder: What do you make of video? Do you think it's all that important?

Bob Dylan: Uh, to sell records, yeah. But videos have always been around. David Bowie's been makin' 'em since he started. There was one thing I saw on a video, and I thought it was great. Then I heard the record on the radio, and it was nothin', you know? But video does give you something to hook onto.

Rolling Stone, 21 June 1984
