Bob Dylan: Outlaw Blues is a brand new, bang up-to-date biography of Bob Dylan by acclaimed author, broadcaster and journalist Spencer Leigh.
The timing of the publication is particularly apposite as it coincides neatly with the release of Dylan’s new album “Rough And Rowdy Ways” , his first collection of new , self-written songs since his 2012 album “Tempest”.
You may ask yourself “Does the world need another biography of Bob Dylan ? Hasn’t Dylan been the subject of countless books , including those by such eminent writers as Anthony Scaduto, Robert Shelton, Howard Sounes, Richard Williams , Paul Williams, Michael Gray, Clinton Heylin, Greil Marcus and many more ? What more can be added to the already voluminous Dylan bibliography?”
Well, my response to those questions is that , yes, we do need a new biography of Bob Dylan as long as it is written by Spencer Leigh.
