Chaser: Yes. Sorry, My Lord. I’ll move on. Mr. Dylan, let’s explore
your decision to go electric, as it were.
Dylan: We got much to talk about.39
Chaser: You upset a lot of fans?
Dylan: I have no apologies to make.40
Chaser: Well, they thought you were a prophet?
Dylan: I just said what I said.41
Chaser: You don’t have a fond recollection of this period?
Dylan: Some of these memories you can learn to live with and
some of them you can’t.42

Chaser: My friend never asked you why you went electric.
Dylan: So-called friends.44
Chaser: Yes, we’ve established that. Why did you go electric?
Dylan: I made up my mind that I had to go on.45
Chaser: Do you know why?

Dylan: Say anything you wanna. I have heard it all.47

Dylan: I can still hear his voice crying in the wilderness.49
Chaser: So, what was your reaction?
Dylan: I cried the whole night long.50
Chaser: Really? What did you cry?
Dylan: How does it feel to be on your own?51
Chaser: Oh yes. Immediately after the fan shouted, you
played “Like a Rolling Stone” real loud?
Dylan: Send a message.52
