Dylan interview – Dublin, 1984

U2 singer Bono interviewed Dylan (alongside Van Morrison) before Dylan’s gig at Slane Castle, Dublin in July 1984, for Irish music paper Hot Press.

The published interview has snippets of insight into Dylan’s thinking, but the highlight for me is Dylan singing Dominic Behan’s Royal Canal.

Van Morrison News, a blog run by John Gilligan, has the text of this rock summit meeting here:
