Q: What does the word “protest” mean to you?
Bob Dylan: It means singing when you really don’t want to sing. It means singing against your wishes to sing.
Dylan’s second west coast press conference in two weeks takes place in Los Angeles. His mood is far less amenable than it had been in San Francisco. The conference lasts just over half an hour.
