I think it was real, it was his first true love, Jimmy wasn’t fond of publicity.
Yes, I have! :)
His humour. He had a childlike way of humouring a situation in such a lighthearted way.
Oh! Gotcha! You may have read it wrong because they asked what the most shocking thing about James Dean is that Ive ever heard and I was referring to the ignorance of people who claim to believe there was alcohol involved.
Absolutely not! May I ask why you think that?
Sometimes. It really depends I guess.
Bob Dylan’s own style of dress and behaviour was heavily influenced by that adolescent identity with James Dean. The Dean image was there, on the record cover of “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan”, with Dylan bowed and hunched up, arm in arm with Suze Rotolo, scuffing through the snow on West Fourth Street.
Dylan was singing for the new rebellion, creating the articulate poetry of protest or reality, his image and sound dominated the 1960’s, as Dean has dominated the mid-1950’s. And it was Dylan who nearly died on his motorbike, breaking his neck in an accident that might, in the event of his death, have eclipsed the Dean legend.
