"The guy wanted to know about everything except the music"

Bob Dylan's interview for AARP The Magazine(!) motivated me to get out and listen to what I still consider one of the best collections of his songs (at least up to 1985), Biograph.


From the AARP interview:
Dylan: I found the questions really interesting. The last time I did an interview, the guy wanted to know about everything except the music. People have been doing that to me since the ’60s — they ask questions like they would ask a medical doctor or a psychiatrist or a professor or a politician. Why? Why are you asking me these things?

Q: What do you ask a musician about? 

Dylan: Music! Exactly.
