It’s official, Bob Dylan is as dangerous as Google. They are both banned from China.
[lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm] has been banned from playing concerts in China by the Chinese government. Apparently, authorities there still think he’s a radical from the 1960’s. You know, going electric at the Newport Folk Festival, and singing subversive lines like “…the pump don’t work cuz the vandals took the handles” and “…you don’t need a weather man to know which way the wind blows” in Subterranean Homesick Blues.
As a consequence of the Chinese Ministry of Culture’s ban, Dylan will not be playing any of his planned concerts in Asia.
