I read 'Howl' on the beach today.
It was AWESOME.
he'd quite happily talk to, or invite in, people who knocked on his door/rang him up. That's all I have to say really.
but i've not got "the hair", and my dad doesnt know anything. So there.
the collected interviews, published by Penguin. It's a fascinating journey through his brain.
I have a friend who looks almost exactly like him, which is quite good. Doesn't David Cross play him in that Dylan film?
i got Howl to make my amazon order up to free delivery and it arrived this morning. will read whenever i find a spare second.
I've never really got into him to be honest - I tried reading On The Road and failed miserably!
Shame on me- it's very un-hip not to have read that book :)
I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by
madness, starving hysterical naked,
dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn
looking for an angry fix,
angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly
connection to the starry dynamo in the machin-
ery of night,
who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat
up smoking in the supernatural darkness of
cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities
who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and
saw Mohammedan angels staggering on tene-
ment roofs illuminated,
