- Polar Music Prize - **(2hrs!)
Bob receives the Polar Music Prize at Berwaldhallen in Stockholm, Sweden.
Poor Bob, why do we make him do these things? A mind numbing pageant of
violins, speeches and other people performing his songs. Rounded off by
a bizzare dinner party that Bob managed to duck out of.
- Horsens TV News - Denmark TV2(?)
Danish TV2 caught Dylan walking out from the Horsens theatre and into a
waiting van, all wrapped up with a white towel around his head. (R.M.D)
The picture on the left was taken at the time, but isn't from the film clip.
- Modena - Italian TV News**(3m)
Really nice film (hopefully there's more of this somewhere?) of the 'Duncan
and Brady' opener. Then spoiled by a zoomed out clip with an old 1997
Bologna tape-over of 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' (which Bob didn't
even play that night!) before closing with a few seconds of instrumental
from 'Country Pie'?
- Ancona - Italian TV News*(2m)
Bob strolling around with his bodyguards and a short clip of the closing
instrumental passage (with mouth organ) from 'Drifter's Escape'.

a local TV news camera.

'Love & Theft' TV advertisement
"Set to the music of `Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum' the lead-off
track of Love And Theft, the commercial depicts a poker game in which
a mysterious cast of characters -- including those played by Bob Dylan and
legendary card master Ricky Jay -- plot and scheme their way through a crucial
hand. Lust corrupts, tempers rage and chips fly in the fast-paced spot lensed
by award-winning commercial director Kinka Usher."
September 2001- Release of 39th Album, Love and Theft
2001- Chicago Interview
Chicago TV did a Staples' doucmentary which Included two snippets of Bob,
taken from an interview he did when in Chicago. He's sitting in front of
a window in his hotel room, in his usual concert dress, including black
stetson. The two quotes go like this: "Pop's
tremelo sound not only was...made the listener tremble and shake, while
others' tremelo sounds didn't quite achieve that. But Pop made you feel
the trembling that was inside you, inside yourself." and later "There
was no telling which way they were going to go. They were completely unpredictable.
Every song was different..." He was obviously cut off mid stream, so
there's probably more of this on video tape somewhere in Chicago if anyone
has any connections there.
