    I just listened to this interview, and it was one of my favorite WTF appearances. I've never been a fan of Jakob Dylan's, and I avoided this WTF out of ambivalence. Of course, this interview was one of Maron's best. Bravo for allowing Dylan's personality to show through, and not holding his hand him down any road. Musicians aren't always full of sunshine, and I though Jakob Dylan came across as slightly mercurial and introverted. The guy was on the defensive the whole time--argumentative, contradictory, and a little bitter. Of course the elephant in the room with Jakob Dylan is that he's Son of Bob. There is no escaping that for him. Talk about a drag! He's a relatively successful musician, but under the shadow of his father, one could imagine that he hasn't achieved anything special! This of course has materialized into the 400 lb chip on his shoulder. So much was said, even if it wasn't outright. It was a fantastic interview, and it's apparent that Jakob's dad follows him wherever he goes. He's cursed.

    I thought this was a good interview. I can totally understand the difficulty refraining from mention of "the elephant in the room"... It would be wierder if you didn't, considering your interest. He responded really matter-of-factly to these inquiries. I liked the way he handled it... He didn't seem annoyed by it. I imagine he was expectant of it.

    Does anybody else think the Rolling Stones get too much crap? I mean, I agree that their new stuff isn't great but it's on par with new stuff by Paul McCartney, John Foggerty, or the Who. I don't understand why the Rolling Stones get so much more crap than any of those other bands.
