Terry Chen
迪伦的电吉他声刚一响起,他不相信自己一手培养起来的新民歌之王居然向商业化投降,玩起了摇滚乐!被激怒了的西格顺手抄起一把斧头,就要去砍电源线。
引自 第四章 一颗滚动的石子

在 2001 年一次对 Pete Seeger 的采访中,Pete Seeger 是这样说的: I couldn't understand the words. I wanted to hear the words. It was a great song, "Maggie's Farm," and the sound was distorted. I ran over to the guy at the controls and shouted, "Fix the sound so you can hear the words." He hollered back, "This is the way they want it." I said "Damn it, if I had an axe, I'd cut the cable right now." But I was at fault. I was the MC, and I could have said to the part of the crowd that booed Bob, "you didn't boo Howlin' Wolf yesterday. He was electric!" Though I still prefer to hear Dylan acoustic, some of his electric songs are absolutely great. Electric music is the vernacular of the second half of the twentieth century, to use my father's old term.(转引自 Wikipedia Pete Seeger 词条) 从 Pete Seeger 的回答来看,所谓“顺手抄起一把斧头,就要去砍电源线”并非实情,而在纪录片 No Direction Home 中,Pete Seeger 的解释也大致如此,下面转引自 Wikipedia: Poor sound quality was the reason Pete Seeger (backstage) gave for disliking the performance: he says he told the audio technicians, "Get that distortion out of his voice ... It's terrible. If I had an axe, I'd chop the microphone cable right now." Seeger has also said, however, that he only wanted to cut the cables because he wanted the audience to hear Dylan's lyrics properly, because he thought they were important. Rumors that Seeger actually had an axe, or that a festival board member pulled or wanted to pull out the entire electrical wiring system are apocryphal. In the film No Direction Home, John Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers, who is Pete Seeger's brother-in-law, states that Seeger wanted to lower the volume of the band because the noise was upsetting his elderly father Charlie, who wore a hearing aid. In the same film, Dylan claimed that Seeger's unenthusiastic response to his set was like a "dagger in his heart" and made him "want to go out and get drunk". 就我个人而言,我非常不喜欢袁越字里行间所透露出来的对 Pete Seeger 等人的态度,在我看来,Bob Dylan 和其他 Folk Singer 是完全不同的人,出现这样的局面实属正常,如果硬要说成 Bob Dylan 追求艺术突破,Pete Seeger 保守顽固我是不能同意的。
