Bob Dylan, Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, and the 'Under The Red Sky' session

    Bob should have stuck with his gut instincts and kept it simple. Dump all the star studded guests and show Don Was the door. They more or less ruined this record, the sound was murky when it first came out even though the album contained decent songs. Thank God, Bob found a great band that he can record and play live with. Other peoples contributions, be it live or studio doesn't really do much for Dylan. He's best left to his own devices, of course there are exceptions.

    Slash is British. Until this article I never knew. I enjoy your post's on Bob!

    I have heard, albeit second hand from someone who subsequently worked with Don Was, that Dylan issued the Django comment after growing bored with Slash spending an inordinate amount of time setting up numerous amps, effect pedals, and a range of guitars. I suspect it was a gentle dig designed to deflate an excitable ego.

    I've always loved this record, much more than "Oh Mercy," which gets maudlin and a bit fey. UTRS rocks, it's edgy, dark, satiric, mean, mysterious--the kind of hallucinogenic bile we had last seen on "Highway 61 Revisited," of all things, only now steeped in a grim sardonic brew that really, really rocks. And it rocks. Great record. It's kind of gratifying that most people don't get it, in fact.
