Clip is first video ever for classic 1965 track
Bob Dylan has debuted an interactive video for his classic track ‘Like A Rolling Stone’ – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.
The promo clip allows viewers to flip through various channels, with each featuring a host of people mouthing the lyrics to the song while acting out a range of typical television programmes including a Danny Brown music video, Drew Carey hosting the US quiz The Price Is Right and a cookery show.
The video is the first ever for ‘Like A Rolling Stone’, which was released in 1965 and is the opening track of Dylan’s album ‘Highway 61 Revisited’. Earlier this month, a huge and career-spanning box set of the singer’s career was released, which includes 35 of his studio albums, from his 1962 self-titled debut to his 2012 LP ‘Tempest’, with 14 of the albums being newly remastered for the release.
Last week (November 14), meanwhile, Dylan was honoured with France’s highest award the Legion Of Honour, which was established by Napoleon and is presented to individuals who have served France in various ways. Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti presented the singer with the accolade with a speech that referred to his songs and sought to tie them to eras and causes such as the US civil rights movement.
The award was temporarily withheld from Dylan earlier this year after army general Jean-Louis Georgelin, the Grand Chancellor of the Legion, voiced reservations about his use of cannabis and anti-war politics.
