Bob Dylan Analyzes the Presidents

BF: Do you remember any particular battle that [Ulysses] Grant fought?

BD: There were a lot of battles but the Shilo [sic] one is most interesting. He could’ve lost that. But he was determined to win it at any price, using all kinds of strategies, even faking retreat. You could read it for yourself.

The Times interviews singer Bob Dylan. The conversation starts out with Barack Obama and somehow moves on to Civil War ghosts haunting Elvis.

(Meanwhile, Phil Collins says his life now “revolves around the Alamo.” What’s up with the musicians these days?)

Dylan’s new album, Together Through Life, is due out later this month.
