Legendary English singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock returns to the podcast to talk about an artist who’s influence has shaped his entire career - Bob Dylan and his iconic 1966 double album ‘Blond on Blonde’.
We talk about why some people are obsessed with finding the literal inspiration behind every Bob line, how Robyn fell in love with Dylan at boarding school, why David Bowie was the British Bob Dylan, how the Nashville session players changed the way Dylan made records, Dylan’s knack for song titles, whether it matters what order you sing the verses to these songs in, why Visions of Johanna is Robyn’s favourite song and the difference between being ‘a Bob Dylan’ instead of ‘the Bob Dylan’.
