Random Thoughts

"I think that bootlegs keep the flame of the music alive by keeping it out of not only the industry's conception of the artist, but also the artist's conception of the artist. I think a lot of artists would like to keep the scruffy moments away. There's that self-editing thing and, with all due respect to great artists, a lot of times their own instincts aren't as righteous about the music as someone else...I'd rather have a lot of scattered stuff so that someday, maybe even in fifty years, someone will be looking at the work of, say, Bob Dylan and all of sudden hear something that might have been lost forever had somebody not grabbed it somewhere and put it out"
