Who is bob dylan dating now
But after he got her to commit to running off to the Caribbean with him, Shain told Ernie they were together.Ernie – who had returned – left the tour, told Dylan’s girlfriend, and just like that, Dylan sent Shain packing.While she and Ernie wound up living together, Dylan hung over their relationship like a specter, endlessly flirting and, in time, digging at her relationship with his friend. As the flirtation progressed, Dylan introduced Shain to his ex-wife, Sara, and Shain presented herself as “Ernie’s girlfriend.” “ ‘Oh, Breeda,’ Bob sighs, shaking his head, as I’m halfway out the door, ‘you know that just isn’t true, at all.’ ” Much of the pleasure of this book comes from the funny, quirky, humanizing details Shain drops about the singer throughout. “Maybe I ought to get me a monkey,” said a dejected Dylan.
He also thought about doing a film called “Nazi Whores,” about “the Jewish women who escaped the concentration camps.” Shain and Dylan brainstormed casting ideas, including “Cher, Sissy Spacek, Jessica Lange, Debra Winger, Theresa Russell and Melanie Griffith.” The pair had many heartfelt conversations.The normally reticent Dylan refers to Baez as "Joanie" throughout the film, and generously heaps praise upon her abilities and her commitment to social causes, which included marching for civil rights with Martin Luther King Jr.and going to jail for her anti-Vietnam draft protests.Already a global star, Baez launched Dylan's career after their first meeting in 1961 by inviting him to share her stage and tour with her at every opportunity, often scolding her fans who found his nasal singing a poor complement to her soaring soprano tones.She has long been coy about their relationship, referring to him as her "special friend." Dylan has also avoided the topic.
