Nice to know …

… Rockumentary 'Echo in the Canyon' Shows Jakob Dylan as the Good Jewish Son – Tablet Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The beauty in this project comes as these artists open up to Dylan like he was their own child or grandchild, which in some sense he is. Literally no one else could have rounded up this cadre of 1960s superstars and gotten them to reminisce so freely in front of a camera. Rock royalty himself, he connects with them professionally, speaks the lingo, knows their world. But that is not why he succeeds here. More than anything else, he knows how to handle old people.
