The journalist, acclaimed author and BBC broadcaster Spencer Leigh is an acknowledged authority on popular music, especially the Beatles, and he has interviewed thousands of musicians. He has written many music biographies to include most recently Simon & Garfunkel, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly. Leigh broadcasts a music show `On the Beat' each week for BBC Radio Merseyside.
`There simply aren't enough books about Bob Dylan. So complex is he as a human being, a songwriter, a poet, a guitarist, a pianist, a vocalist (never a mere singer), enough words can never be written about him. Dylan is to this day - inscrutable and unfathomable. Thank you, Spencer, for this, I feel some corners have been brightened, yet still you've left us plenty to ponder for ourselves, such is any great writer's wish.' Ian McNabb
