persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

THE BUTTERFLY KID was written by Chester Anderson. And in the book, you meet various characters, which were all based on people he knew in the Village of the period of time. One of the was The Pornographer, who was Larry Janifer. I once asked him, "who was Lazlo Scott?"
"Oh, that was Dylan," he said.
"Dirty Lazlo was was Bob Dylan?"
"Yes, back in those days he was awful. Really awful."
"As in..."
"Not bathing, getting in the way, just all those things in the book."

Interesting. Have biographers ever asked Bob Dylan about those days and the Tuckerism of Lazlo Scott?
