Lindsey Buckingham Has Something to Share With You.
Don't get me wrong: I respect Bob Dylan. But Dylan was a band-leader, not a member of a band.
When you're the band-leader you tell everyone what to do, and they have to do it. Play it faster, play it slower, no we don't need more harmonies on fucking everything: they do it, or they are out the door. Yeah, Dylan had it easy.
When you're IN a Band, you have to wait until everyone fucking agrees on everything. Even if you're the one who writes most of the songs and produces them and plays all the cool guitar parts, you have to listen to the bass player talking about needing more room for his bass part, or a singer needing candles lit and scarves draped over the lights and shit just to do her damned job. Eighteen takes for a harmony vocal of one fucking line? "Can we record one more, Lindsay?" Dylan would NEVER put up with that shit.
And -- if Dylan WERE to fuck a chick in 'the band', he could leave her behind anytime he damn well wanted to. As opposed to being stuck with them in the Band for decades, hearing their same damn stories for the baby-boomer-nostalgia reporters and warbling those same melodramatic chick songs onstage.
Hell, maybe I could've been a better Dylan than Dylan if I hadn't met One Certain Band Member.
By the way: I fucked Stevie Nicks.
When she was Hot.
I am Laslo.
