Dylan on Life and Theft

New Rolling Stone cover story on Dylan features Bob responding for first time at length on the many charges of plagiarism against him in recent years.   Also includes what he really thinks about the laughable and overpraised I'm Not There ("it's all right"),  and he claims he was "transfigured" by his famous 1966 motorcycle crash.  On Springsteen: "I love Bruce like a brother." Only a brief excerpt posted so far. On the plagiarism charges:
Wussies and pussies complain about that stuff. It's an old thing – it's part of the tradition. It goes way back. These are the same people that tried to pin the name Judas on me. Judas, the most hated name in human history! If you think you've been called a bad name, try to work your way out from under that. Yeah, and for what? For playing an electric guitar?....All those evil motherfuckers can rot in hell.
