AverageAmericanGuy: I thought the "jester" was the Big Bopper.
awfulperson: God I hate that f*cking song.
HotIgneous Intruder: Anybody got a link to a complete explanation of that song?
PizzaJedi81: awfulperson: God I hate that f*cking song.I love the song...but I hate how people try to decipher it for me everytime it plays. Just let me listen to and enjoy it on its own merits, please. Yes, I am aware of the history and all the different metaphors in the song...don't care, listening.
FlyingJ: Clash City Farker That will be the day.Not strangely @ all-Buddy said he got the song from Wayne's catchphrase in "The Searchers"...karnal "With the jester on the sidelines in a cast" -Dylan crashing his motorcycle in Woodstock.The book "Positively 4th Street" goes into how Dylan was hanging with Richard Farina('Gravity's Rainbow' is dedicated to him, he was married to Joan Baez sister) & saw how his image was elevated when he was killed in a motorcycle crash the night of his debut novel's party) so Dylan probably made up the Triumph crashhttp://www.motorcyclistonline.com/features/122_1101_the_bob_dylan_mo to rcycle_crash/

YoOjo: What religion is Dylan now? I'm guessing Rastafarian, Zoroastrian or Scientologist.Or is there something else suitably grumpy and barely understandable.
Dwight_Yeast: YoOjo: What religion is Dylan now? I'm guessing Rastafarian, Zoroastrian or Scientologist.Or is there something else suitably grumpy and barely understandable.According to interviews he's given, he's not really anything anymore. He gave up on organized religion about thirty years ago, so you're a little late to the party.
YoOjo: Really, thirty years ago? I had no idea. Of course my main interest in Dylan is in the mid-70s period (particularly Rolling Thunder) so I guess I wouldn't have.
uncleacid: I bought the CD years ago, there was American Pie, Starry Starry Night and everything else sucked.
