How a cult music book became a cult music documentary, and it only took ten years.

In tandem with Robert's book being reprinted, it looks like there will be some live events - I was always a fan of Vox'n'Roll when it used to happen in Filthy MacNasty's in Islington, but I haven't been to it since it relocated to the Boogaloo. Looks likely that Robert will be doing a reading and playing some music there. The last time I went was to see Greil Marcus read from his (less than earthshatteringly brilliant) most recent book, the one about Clinton. He was comprehensively upstaged by the support act - Ian MacLagan, ex of the Small Faces, who read from his autobiography 'All the Rage', and whose stories about Dylan and the Stones cracked the crowd up - I particularly liked the one where Dylan didn't talk to him for weeks because he'd misheard MacLagan's passing comment, "Looking very Byronic today, Bob." Though why Dylan thought his keyboard player would accuse him of looking moronic I really don't know. It might have been the drugs.
