“People can learn everything about me through my songs, if they know where to look. They
can juxtapose them with certain other songs and draw a clear picture. But why would anyone
want to know about me? It’s ridiculous.”
~Bob Dylan to Edna Gundersen, August, 1990

In response to pressure from the media, Dylan agrees to a press conference, which is staged at the Halland Hotel on the Wednesday afternoon. The conference receives extensive coverage on BBC news programs, although Dylan gives little away. Ar one point he claims his 1966 stage act “was all for publicity …. I don’t do that kind of thing anymore.” After the conference, which is shorter than expected (Dylan curtailing it with, “I think I’ve answered enough questions”), there is a brief photo session on the seafront, before Dylan is whisked back to Forelands Farm.
