Last thoughts on Bob Dylan

It's easy to forget this: in October 1962 Dylan was still playing in New York coffee shops; within the next three years and nine months, he had become the poster-boy for the "protest" movement; gone electric; recorded what must be the greatest six-album run ever seen; been called "Judas"; been feted in England; and had a serious motorcycle accident (well, something had to bring the madness to an end).

So, what were you doing three years and nine months ago?
