Like a Rolling Stone
For the fortieth anniversary of the recording of 'Like a Rolling Stone' - the definitive biography of the song that caught the questing spirit of its time and overnight changed the rules of the possible in popular music for all time.
In Like a Rolling Stone Marcus locates Dylan's six-minute masterwork in its richest, fullest context, capturing the heady atmosphere of the recording studio in 1965 as musicians and technicians clustered around the mercurial genius from Minnesota, the young Bob Dylan.
This is the stage for Marcus's recreation of the song on the page - its emergence from fragments, its words, its sounds, its discovery of itself.
