“I get very bored with my old songs, I can’t sing ‘With God on My Side’ for 15 years. What I write is much more concise now than before. It’s not deceiving.”
~Bob Dylan (to Robert Shelton – 27 August 1965)

September 3 – 1965

Concert @ Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, California

With the same band and repertoire as at Forest Hills, Dylan plays a major west coast show. However, this time far more of the audience are enthusiastic about the show, and Dylan treats them to an encore. Afrer the show, he attends a Hollywood-style party, along with 300 other guests, at which he meets a longtime idol, Marlon Brando.
~Clinton Heylin (Bob Dylan: A Life in Stolen Moments Day by Day 1941-1995)

September 3 – 2007


The movie “I’m Not There” was released.

I’m Not There is a 2007 biographical musical film directed by Todd Haynes, inspired by the life and music of American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Six actors depict different facets of Dylan’s public personas: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, and Ben Whishaw. Production notes published by distributor The Weinstein Company explain that the film “dramatizes the life and music of Bob Dylan as a series of shifting personae, each performed by a different actor—poet, prophet, outlaw, fake, star of electricity, rock and roll martyr, born-again Christian—seven identities braided together, seven organs pumping through one life story.” A caption at the start of the film declares it to be “inspired by the music and the many lives of Bob Dylan”; this is the only mention of Dylan in the film apart from song credits, and his only appearance in it is concert footage from 1966 shown during the film’s final moments.
